A Fine Piece

Reader comment on item: 'Become a Muslim warrior'

Submitted by Paul R. Gross (United States), Jul 3, 2002 at 08:27

A fine piece, this one from Daniel Pipes. It makes the point well: that it is all too easy, in a culture that has given itself up to a self-righteous multiculturalism, to subvert education in aid of indoctrination. More specifically, it becomes honorable to teach nonsense as though it were not nonsense, just because somewhere in the world, or in the course of time, it is or has been devoutly held by millions. Now I would like to see this good argument applied, e.g., in COMMENTARY (not to mention the entire high-class Christian press), to the drivel of "Intelligent Design" for science classes.
