more Christian persecution complex

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Dinesh D’Souza pimps his new book (What’s So Great About Christianity) at ClownHall while flogging the dead horse of a “secular assault” on believers:

The atheists no longer want to be tolerated. They want to monopolize the public square and to expel Christians from it. They want political questions like abortion to be divorced from religious and moral claims. They want to control the school curricula, so that they can promote a secular ideology and undermine Christianity. They want to discredit the factual claims of religion, and they want to convince the rest of society that Christianity is not only mistaken but also evil. They blame religion for the crimes of history and for the ongoing conflicts in the world today. In short, they want to make religion—and especially the Christian religion—disappear from the face of the earth.

It’s not the opium in and of itself that is problematic; we become concerned when use becomes abuse, and addiction takes hold. (See the last quarter-century of Religious Right antics for examples.)
