Comments: opinion on Saturday

Note to self: never read the 'comments' section in 'Comment is Free'. Every religious column, without exception, turns into a vicious debate about atheism versus theism - a debate in which very few people listen and most people yell.

On the other hand, it does increase one's appreciation for 'Thinking Anglicans'. I know we have some robust arguments here from time to time, but we rarely fall to the level of nastiness that seems to be the usual thing at CiF!

Michael Bourdeaux's piece on "The Iron Lady and the Dissident" is rather more amusing than most of what appears on Fulcrum. I especially liked his opening line:

"Soon after Margaret Thatcher’s second election success she summoned a group of eight academics and addressed them: “We have spent five years learning how to deal with the Russians: now I want you to tell me how to bring this inhuman system to an end.”"

I can't believe that none of the dons present had the presence of mind to say: "Well, have you considered immediate resignation, Prime Minister?"
