Articles from the UK Telegraph have to be severely edited for Free Republic postings, and I'm hoping that readers will click on the Telegraph link to read the full essay as I felt it was quite worthwhile.

God has a great sense of humor, unexpected mostly.

You may be sitting around, minding your own business, sipping on a beer or munching on a burger, and God pops out. He throws you in a room filled with chainmail, spears and chariots. He walks out of a closet dressed in thunderbolts, holding a golden sword, and He says: Surprise! Will you wear your armor? Are you for or agin Me? Choose now.

Christopher Dawson’s Progress and Religion outlined all of this very well—in the 30’s, I think—and more explicitly. False religions fail as surely as no religion at all. Islam is an exception, probably because it is less a religion than it is a sociology with religious stilts. How it’s “progressed” or even endured is a question yet to be answered.

Thanks for posting. Oddly enough I have this article open in another tab, ready to be posted here. Good job I checked first!

Charles is good people, a very good writer and a great analyst as long as he is not on one of his pet subjects.

That's a great essay. Thanks for posting it!

I found his last couple of paragraphs particularly interesting. I, too, have long found the discourse between Jesus Christ and Pontius Pilate to be fascinating. Christ seemed so laid-back and serene when dealing with Pilate, as opposed to the outright anger and disgust he often showed to the Pharisees who he dealt with.
