An Australian Minister’s Misconceptions about Islam and Christianity

Writing in The Australian, Concetta Fierravanti-Wells has attempted to throw light on the challenge of Islamic radicalism. She offers a “reality check” by injecting what she asserts are “basic facts” into the public debate.

However, she succeeds only in promoting misinformation and multiplying confusion.

    Anyone noticed that Hillary Clinton always speaks of “holy Koran” (never of “hly Bible” ?

  • I notice that spelling Koran as “Koran” (as opposed to “Qur’an”, since, as Mark Steyn puts it, “the more the merrier, toss a couple of wingdings in there”) is making something of a comeback.

    Linking to stuff behind a paywall is very annoying.
    At least quote the relevant parts of the article.

  • Aside from the basic theological facts that were utterly wrong, Assistant Minister Hyphenated Italian name will have to justify her claims by proving sectarian violence across the religious spectrum has the same virulence and frequency.

    I won’t hold my breath.
