Heading towards Islamic totalitarianism

Reader comment on: The French Inquisition

Submitted by Pierre Pendre, Feb 4, 2017 07:34

The defence of religion in France and indeed all of western Europe is increasingly about the defence of Islam since neither the Catholic, Protestant nor Jewish religions seek any outside defence of their tenets. If the three non-Islamic religions continue to decline in observance at their current rate, the defence of religion will soon be exclusively about the defence of Islam. We will have regressed towards a state of religious totalitarianism not known since since the 17th century. The paradox is that Islam, while claiming to need special protection, is the only one of the four to be growing and dynamic.
