Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I'm having a hard time understanding the proposal that there is something inherently better about the Christian heritage--given its long history of conquest, war, genocide, slavery, etc.--in comparison to Islam. Neither is a paragon of toleration.

I thought the whole point of the Enlightenment was to try to move away from government based on superstition, tradition, and prejudice. Perhaps three hundred years has not been enough to finish up the argument about Spinozism?
