Fear and loathing


Compare the hype surrounding The DaVinci Code to the pious handwringing about how important it was not to offend religious sensibilities that we heard all over the West at the height of Cartoon Rage. And why aren’t we hearing that handwringing now? Not because of some subtle difference involved, but because the target this time is Christianity, and because the handwringers were and are smarmy hypocrites who were speaking out of fear, not conviction — and they fear Muslims in a way that they don’t fear Christians.

I think that is only half it, the other half being a hatred for Christianity that doesn’t exist against other religions in the West.
