What is this logical fallacy called?

I am in email discussions with someone that runs a website that "proves" God exists. Our current standoff is with him/her lumping the laws of logic, science, mathematics, and absolute morality together. What is the name of this fallacy (the lumping together of a number of items where in order to show they are similar) For example, "The world is being destroyed by child molesters, communists, Nazi's, leftists, and Teletubbies."

Thank you for your time

It might be appropriately called a category error.
