by Ross Douthat, New York Times: How Western liberalism’s peculiar relationship to its Christian heritage leaves non-Western Christians exposed. The murderous radicals who set off bombs and killed hundreds on Easter Sunday in Sri Lanka chose their targets with ideological purpose. Three Catholic churches were bombed, and with them three hotels catering to Western tourists, because often in the jihadist imagination Western Christianity and Western liberal individualism are the conjoined enemies...

History Burning Before Our Eyes: The Tragedy of Notre Dame and the Soul of Modern France

Apr 17, 2019 by

by Albert Mohler: History burned before our eyes. One of the most important architectural achievements of western civilization endured catastrophic damage from a raging fire. The victim of this great tragedy was Notre Dame Cathedral—a nearly 900-year-old masterpiece in the center of the city of Paris.
