British Jihadists

Despite his tired atheistic cliches and his boorish ideoloogical bromides, Christopher Hitchens is still by turns funny, insightful, and poignant. It is difficult to see that in his four-part debate with Douglas Wilson in the online pages of Christianity Today. But, it is on full display in his essay on Londinistan in the current Vanity Fair. Hitchens asks how Britain moved from cricket and fish-and-chips to burkas and shoe-bombers in a single generation? Great question. Disturbing answer.

Dr Grant,

I ran into Lee Brown in Athens, GA
This morning at breakfast!
Random to me, yet on purpose we met.
We spoke of Bannockburn and his guest lecture on Homer and Epic Tradition...
I praise God upon rememberance of you.

How is it that an atheist has more insight into the sutuation revolving aroudn Islam than he majority of Chrisitan leaders? We are in a mess. Perhaps an unrecoverable mess.

Sharia vs Inalienable Rights has been calling for a policy change in D.C, curtailing Muslims from immigrating into the U.S. Those who profess any political and or religious views, or hold to ideologies that are anti-thetical to inalienable rights, will in time compromise the safety and security of the citizens within. Our current immigration policy is creating a grave threat to their nation's future posterity.
