Today, the official line from my masters is that Christianity is an oppressive, racist, patriarchial, homophobic religion and the sooner it is uprooted and eradicated, the better for all of us. They cheer when some Western woman marries a Muslim, and look the other way three years later when the pair has divorced and the woman is walking around with her broken jaw on the mend and the eye put out by her ex is replaced with a glass one.
