Question by Islam Delenda Est: A hardcore liberal who actually gets it about Islamic terrorism? How could this be?

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2174813/Ian-McEwan-I-despise-militant-Islam.html

Quotes from the article:

“McEwan, 60, said it was ‘logically absurd and morally unacceptable’ that writers who speak out against militant Islam are immediately branded racist.”

“McEwan recognised that similar views were held by some Christian hardliners in America.
‘I find them equally absurd,’ he said. ‘I don’t like these medieval visions of the world according to which God is coming to save the faithful and to damn the others. But those American Christians don’t want to kill anyone in my city, that’s the difference.'”

I might just have to buy one of his novels!
curious: Is “racsim” the left’s standard response to anything they don’t like? It loses its effectiveness after it’s been trotted out every ten minutes for years on end.
curious: Reading comprehension not your strong suit, I take it? That passage was by a friend of McEwen’s. Thanks for playing, though.
sj: I can define modern liberalism in two words: Moral relativism. They generally believe there is no right or wrong, only “different”. Because of this belief, they are unwilling to defend traditional American (or more appropriately Western) values and ways of life. They are the fruit of the moral and political decay sowed during the ’60’s.
