Our best defence against the rising threat of radical Islamism

There’s been a lot of interest recently in a quote from renowned atheist Richard Dawkins, who admits that Christianity may be our best defence against the rising threat of radical Islamism – even acknowledging that the teachings of Jesus Christ do not lead to terrorism, but quite the opposite. Further, Dawkins ponders whether the Christianity he has so publicly belittled might offer an antidote to protect western civilization against jihad.
It’s also rather interesting that the Church of England, so often the target of Dawkins’ ridicule, has called upon its members everywhere to pray for him and his family in the light of Dawkins’ recent suffering of a stroke – a good example of the very thing he noted about Christian teaching; loving your enemies and praying for those who give you a bad time.
