Britain’s response to Islamic terror: forbid criticism of Islam

I wrote two hours ago, capsulizing the response of respectable British opinion to the London bombings: “Therefore the way for Britain to protect itself from Muslim extremism is to welcome Muslims more extravagantly than ever before, and to silence any criticism of Muslims more stringently than ever before.”

And, sure enough, the British have done just that! Today the House of Commons passed a bill that criminalizes “incitement to religious hatred.” According to the UPI, “hundreds of Christians demonstrated outside Parliament as the bill was debated, arguing the law would prevent them criticizing other religions.”

Unbelievable, simply unbelievable. Yet all in accord with the critique of liberalism to which this website is largely devoted.
