The role of the clergy

Americans of the Europe-is-doomed school often cite Europe's secularism (weakening of the role of Christianity in society) as a supposed source of European spinelessness in the face of Islamist bullying.

But this example of sniveling dhimmitude on the part of British Christian clergymen, and the uproar it has provoked among the mostly-secular British people, suggests that matters are otherwise. (Found via Samizdata.)

A religion which exhorts its adherents to love their enemies and turn the other cheek when struck is hardly suited to serve as a source of strength in time of existential conflict.
