Presidential candidate Obama may think so. Here is a report from Breitbart on his speech to the convention of the UCC. The whole hijacking metaphor has been distorted from President Bush’s use of it to Obama’s. 9-11 was not the hijacking of a religion, but an acting out of long-standing traditions and practices rooted in the life of Islam’s founder and codified in the Qu’ran and Haditha. Those whom Obama accuses of hijacking are not all of one stripe, and may be in error in many ways, but they are not hijackers simply because they are not in accord with Obama’s take on Christianity. If one were looking for a case of hijacking and an ensuing case of Stockholm Syndrome, the ELCA is a good example.
