Just when you thought baby eating was the worst thing you could be accused of, Dinesh D’Souza has attributed the Islamic terror attacks around the world and the war in Iraq in part to atheists.The other day he gave a speech complete with protestors outside at Northwestern University in Evanston, IL, saying that the conflicts are a result of a “culture war” in America between religion and atheism and the world’s perception of America as an atheistic, immoral society as a result of the popular culture that America exports.
“The radical Muslims exploit the idea of an immoral America,” D’Souza said. “This is their main recruiting slogan in the Muslim world. Muslim extremists are attacking America because not everyone in the U.S. follows a moral code given by an “external being,” D’Souza said. This new moral code leads to acts such as adultery and gay marriage, he said.
I suppose this is the same “external being” who told those pious moralists to fly the planes into the skyscrapers for morality’s sake. Maybe the whole World Trade Center was filled with nothing but adulterers and gays. But don’t worry, according to D’Souza “our” war in Iraq is bound to succeed, despite the abysmal results so far:
The outcome of the Iraq war, according to D’Souza, is a matter of simple math because the U.S. has the support of the Shiite majority and the Kurds, which together make up 80 percent of Iraq’s population.”Who is going to win the war in Iraq?” D’Souza said. “You don’t have to be a West Point graduate to see there is actually no way to lose.”
Check out the article yourselves to see if you agree with my take on it. It’s not long.
