UK: We need Christianity, says Chief Rabbi!
Just read that again, slowly. And consider the implications: ‘My (true) religion is not popular enough to defend itself, so we need more people to believe in a (false) religion in order to fight for my religion against people who believe in another (even more false) religion.”
And why do we need them? To defeat Voldemort’s mob — you know, The Ones Who Must Not Be Named. The atheists can’t do it, they’re much too reasonable:
Whatever happened to the intellectual depth of the serious atheists, the forcefulness of Hobbes, the passion of Spinoza, the wit of Voltaire, the world-shattering profundity of Nietzsche?
What happened, Rabbi, is that they showed us religion was a set of fairy tales, and said ‘you can take it from here’. Which we have done. It’s called ‘progress’. Get over it.
But about these ‘barbarians’; are you really advocating another Holy War? Because those never work out well.
