"And So It Begins"

Dutch blogger Zacht Ei agrees with my diagnosis of what is happening in Britain, how Muslim and Sikh extremism neccessarily creates a corresponding Christian extremism.

"Fundamentalists, unite! Or, how Islamic and Sikh violence breed Christian intolerance."

He quotes a pissed off British Christian. "If this show portrayed Mohammed or Vishnu as homosexual, ridiculous and ineffectual, it would never have seen the light of day."

While that is true it does not justify death threats. Or, as Zacht puts it, "These aren't jackboots you're hearing. They're the horns whose ghostly sound accompanies ... the crackling of the funeral pires on which the civilization of Enlightenment will eventually perish." It's nice to know I'm not alone. Maybe Zacht and I can hide out in the same basement when society collapses.
