On Thursday 30 March, the Dutch 13 Light Brigade will be 'placed under command' of the German 10th Armoured Division.

"Nee, het zijn geen militairen, het is politie met machinegeweren en granaten."
Politicians still play with language to obfuscate or play down violence. Bush's war on terror became the fight against terrorism, which reminds me of a boxing match.

For me it's more than that. It goes deeper.
It is an outright myth that Christianity delayed progress. The Catholic church funded a lot of the Renaissance and it is thanks to the work done by hundreds of monks that we still have access to much of the literature and scientific achievements of the Romans and Greeks. Even in the Baghdad House of Wisdom, Christians such as Hunayn ibn Ishaq played an inordinately large role in preserving and expanding knowledge.
Europe developed in spite of christianity, not because of it. It is ironic that you cite the Renaissance, a period of relative religious withdrawal as proof that christianity did not delay progress. If anything, it proves the opposite. The Renaissance was practically an effort to recreate the atmosphere of the classic pagan Roman period
