4/21/2019--On this Easter Sunday, another reminder of violence perpetrated in the name of religion--this time in Sri Lanka. All religions perpetrate violence these days. I presume the bomber of a mosque in New Zealand on March 15, described as a white supremacist, was a Christian. Hindus oppress Muslims in India. Buddhists in South Asia do, too.
But violence perpetuated by Islamic radicals surpasses all the rest. One day Islam will suffer from this violence as Christianity did earlier in world history--by a wave of secularism. No one is going to put up with killing innocent people in the name of God forever. Eventually, whole societies revolt.
Chris Hitchens is smiling.
