Steyn contends that for demographic, political, and cultural reasons "pre-modern Islam beats post-modern Christianity". A process aided and abetted by the welfare nanny state and a clear warning to Americans!
Christians in Europe? I think a convention of every Christian in Western and Central Europe could be held in a phone booth.
I would change it slightly to "Old Europe" is finished.
It's over in old Europe, all that is left is for the fat lady to sing.
We could easily go the same way if we don't wake up-soon.
It's over in old America, too.
I agree and socialism is the cause and death of the West.
Eh? Post-modern Christianity is an oxymoron. "Secular" is what Europe's all about.
When people get "too smart for God", they are heading for the ash heap of history. We've been blessed "to the third and fourth generation" (Ex.20:6) because of our God-fearing forebearers. Our children and grandchildren won't be so blessed because we've let post-modernism rot the core values of our nation and destroyed our families in the process.
Steyn's book is remarkable. It has made it onto the NY Times best seller list.
Europe has always been finished. Maybe he means the EEC.
boy I think he's being the master of the obvious here. It's over for europe-the fat lady is warming up.
Believing Christians are bailing out of Europe. I just finished a telephone call with a Dutch woman I know who lives in Groningen. A devout Christian, she is trying to get all the paperwork together so that she and her husband can emigrate to the US or Canada.
"Pared to its essentials, he counsels two things: First, avoid the 'bloated European welfare systems...' Second, avoid 'imperial understretch'"Election of the Democrat Congress was a Giant Step toward rejecting Mark's counsels.
If they use a WMD somewhere though, all bets are off.
The Muslim immigrants in Europe seem to mostly be on welfare. Sometime in the next 5 years, the ability of the white European taxpayers to keep the Welfare State afloat will reach its limit
See how fast they breed when they have to buy their own baby food and diapers
Makes perfect sense! Thanks! I wonder how that will work here with the Mexicans...
You might be surprised. I've handfulls of Christian friends in Romania, Poland, Ireland, and the Czech Republic. Same can be said for Italy.Granted, yes, they are mostly in pockets.
I question whether Western Europe has the societal stability and commonaltiy to survive the onslaught, particularly Northern Europe. All but Ireland seem very much devoid of fight, faith, or spirit.
Just finished the book. Its excellent.
Unfortunately, this time there will be no Catholic Church to run the Muzzies out of Europe. The Crusades are looking better by the day.
