Comment on Hot Air

Comment on When Atheists and Secularists Quote Scripture by Bryan

Why don't we have the same level of violence in America? Probably because the level of Moslem immigration is much lower and there is much more immigration from other cultures, like Latin America, that dilutes the effect.

Compared to Europe America is in a much better position both in terms of the resilience of our traditional communities, unlike Europe’s demographic death spiral, and in terms of our ability to attract other cultures such as the Latin or Asian, which strengthens us. Of course being better at assimilating helps but multiculturalism is eroding our abilities there. That weakness is painfully obvious in the decline of our public education system that once was an engine of integration.

The long term trends are still problematic even if we have more time than the Europeans do.
