British bishop Michael Nazir-Ali has an intersting essay in the June 2008 issue of Standpoint magazine...his premise is that he collapse of British Christianity in the last half century has left the culture beleagured and ripe for Islamic radicals to fill the ideological void.
Interesting read - the source can be found here - Breaking Faith with Britain - When one looks at history the armies of Islam were held at bay in Europe by two powers. First, the hammer of Charles Martel and the Frankish armies. Second, the philosophical and scientific efforts of the great philosophers such as Thomas Aquinas. My fear is that Europe has neither the will to dispute with or resist Islam - I hope I am wrong.
