Chief Rabbi: atheism has failed. Only religion can defeat the new barbarians

Jonathan Sacks – The West is suffering for its loss of faith. Unless we rediscover religion, our civilisation is in peril

“…In one respect the new atheists are right. The threat to western freedom in the 21st century is not from fascism or communism but from a religious fundamentalism combining hatred of the other, the pursuit of power and contempt for human rights. But the idea that this can be defeated by individualism and relativism is naive almost beyond belief. Humanity has been here before.”
