The most damning thing on the academy I've read in long time

from tmatt at GetReligion:
I am reminded of something a scholar told me more than a year ago in Oxford. Try, he said, to find a course at a major, secular British university focusing on textual criticism of the Koran. Then compare this number with the same university’s course offerings applying these methods to the Bible. Then do the math.
Just an Oliver Stonian theory off the top of my head, but could it be that the academy views Muslims as victims and special interest groups with benefits? After all, I'm fresh from posting the item immediately below this one.
