In tumid prose, something called the Fjordman exposits that the success of Habermasian Christian socialism at diffusing Tolkenien fantasism throughout post-Roman France and England is responsible for Charles Martel's success in bringing Zoroastrianism to China, whereas et hoc ergo proctor zippitus hippitus bippitus boppitus boous, Muslims are all COMMIES! But there's really no point in reading beyond the first paragraph:
My post about the impact of Christianity on Western culture generated some interesting comments. Several readers stated that Christianity is flexible, unlike Islam, and that the United States, perhaps still the most devoutly Christian of Western nations, also has the most dynamic military forces. And it was the Americans who dropped nuclear bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, which hardly indicates that Christians have to be soft.The image of Jim Morrison screeching "Mother! I want to fuck you . . . whaaaaa-all night looo-onnng!" while flapping his cock at that crowd in Florida appears before me. Yes indeed. From the Sermon on the Mount to Johannite moral asceticism to the Manhattan Project, Christianity leads the way.
This project to lump the whole span of history from the pre-Charmlemagnian dark years in Europe right up to the present moment into one perpetual, Christological Gemeinschaft is nothing if not audacious. Fortunately for those of us in the mocking arts, audacity is no antidote to idiocy, and is often its attendent. This argument was written with the intent to sound learned, and the natural result is that it sounds like a crackpot's pamphlet. This way to the center of our hollow Earth, ladies and gentlemen. I hold no brief for Western Civ, which is largely predicated on making trouble for everyone else, but it deserves better defenders than these.
