Alas, the genie is out of the bottle:
The rapidly accelerating growth of Islam in Europe has produced a few unexpected alliances: Buddhists have joined Polish Nationalists in protesting the construction of a Mosque in Warsaw; atheist RichardÂ DawkinsÂ is having second thoughts about the collapse of Christianity in Britain, and the English Defence League – vilified by theÂ IslamistsÂ as a bunch of football hooligans – has formed a gay division.
For someone who has made a career out of telling everyone how much more tolerant the world would be if only religion were obliterated from the human psyche, Dawkins manages to appear remarkably intolerant towards anyone who disagrees with him. Â The Australian
Buddhists join Polish crusade againstÂ MegamosqueÂ in Warsaw
The Polish activist groupÂ Europe of the FutureÂ held a protest on 27thÂ MarchÂ against the proposal to build a new Saudi-financed mosque in Warsaw. The predominantly Catholic Poles objected to the fact that the Saudis could build triumphalist mosques in European capitals, but Christians were not allowed to build churches or even possess Bibles in Saudi Arabia.
RichardÂ DawkinsÂ views Christianity as a bulwark against Islam
Christianity is in decline in Europe as a whole, and has collapsed in Britain in particular, leaving even the most committed atheists wondering what is going to fill the spiritual vacuum.
FromÂ The Times:
“Even among the world’s most famous atheists, the crisis of faith among Christians in Europe has been met with concern.
RichardÂ Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, said: “There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death. I have mixed feelings about the decline of Christianity, in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.”
