Serenading Our Cars

Peter Hitchens and I have a running joke/debate over the comparative value of trains or cars as a means of transportation, Peter valuing trains more highly than he ought. I have made the point that Americans have a thing about cars. I mean, we sing songs to them, and about them. We serenade our cars.

Or why did the easter bombings in Sri Lanka get so much press when there were more homicides in the secularist paradises of Cental America that week?

I thought it was just me who was struggling with this piece. He seems to be saying that multiculturalism is bad in itself (not simply bad when it is treated as an idol) and that it naturally results in bad things like people murdering Jews at prayer.

But I think Toby is overlooking Earnest’s explicitly religious motive for his intended mass slaughter: “for their persecution of Christians of old (including the prophets of ancient Israel—Jeremiah, Isaiah, etc.), members… Read more »
