Newman and Dawkins
As a Catholic, Newman believed that the Church of England was a bulwark against Infidelity. Dr Dawkins has now started worrying about the decline of Christianity because it is a bulwark against Islam.

The best bulwark against Islam was the Austro-Hungarian empire. If only Vienna and Budapest had the confidence to reassemble it instead of lazily joining the EU. This latter's original members plus the second wave of 1973 celebrate Dawkins and multiculturalism simultaneously a balancing act even Dawkins finds troubling.
Orwell's description of communist tactics and stategy " sawing off the branch on which they sit" fits many another trendy and lefty.
The man's had thirty or forty years as a clever, gifted, once very glib Saul, to whom Almighty God gave enviable talents of convincing presentation, not used for good, and now he's beginning, howsoever crassly , to see maybe there is something to the bathwater after all, even if he cant make out the baby .It's a start. For all of us, judgement had better find us as Paul, not Saul.
The Habsburgs strongly support the EU. An early president of the Council of Europe was a Luxembourgois political leader who is now a Servant of God, so it can’t be all bad.
oh really :)
The best bulwark against Islam has always been the Catholic Church. Always!
