The West's strange silence on the martyred Christians of the Muslim world
The Archbishop of Canterbury has said that Christians are suffering "mass martyrdom" in the Muslim world – and it's hard to disagree. A recent bomb attack took the lives of 85 people in Pakistan, churches are being destroyed in Egypt and Christians are on the run in Syria. Fraser Nelson and Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith discuss the nightmare and conclude that the British government is too hamstrung by liberal political correctness to do anything – and Fr Lucie-Smith blames that partly on Richard Dawkins and his radical atheist crew. Also Dr Alexander Lee gives us a new take on the Renaissance, which he says wasn't just an age of beauty and enlightenment but anti-Semitism, disease and lashings of kinky sex.
