Charlie Hebdo: secularism is not the solution but the problem, says Tim Stanley

Posted on January 9, 2015 at 9:14 AM
Tim Stanley suggests that secular Europe and its lack of understanding of religion may be a major issue as Paris feels the full brunt of militant Islam.
As he looks back at Emeritus Benedict XVI's Regensburg address in 2006, a speech which brought about great criticism for the then pontiff, he considers how Benedict made two useful observations for Europe and its need to harmonise communities with different beliefs.
Stanley comments that harmonisation of these different cultures is difficult and stresses the importance of dialogue.  However, he states that 'we cannot have such a dialogue if Islamists refuse to listen a secularists treat blasphemy like high art'.
