Don't Mention The.....
The Telegraph is all-a-flutter.
Lord Carey, the former Archbishop of Canterbury, launched a trenchant attack on Islamic culture last night, saying it was authoritarian, inflexible and under-achieving.
Welcome to the PC bizzarro world, where telling the truth counts as a trenchant attack. But the Telegraph has bought a six-pack of Kool Aid:
In a speech that will upset sensitive relations between the faiths, he denounced moderate Muslims for failing unequivocally to condemn the "evil" of suicide bombers.
Yes, the 'evil' of suicide bombing. Instinct tells me that sniffer dogs couldn't find a case of the media referring to the 'evil' of racism.
Dr Carey said that moderate Muslims must "resist strongly" the taking over of Islam by radical activists "and to express strongly, on behalf of the many millions of their co-religionists, their abhorrence of violence done in the name of Allah".
I wouldn't be holding your breath, Doc.
