Video: Patrick Sookhdeo om nazisme, islam og kristendom

Her handler det om historiske paralleller – en lidt speciel forelæsning med vægt på kirkens rolle. Fra The Family Research Council 26. januar 2012:

Responding to Islam: Lessons from Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Karl Barth, and Bishop George Bell

Featuring Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo, International Director, The Barnabas Fund

Dietrich Bonhoeffer. Karl Barth. Bishop George Bell. Dismissed, derided, and in one case even martyred, each of these Christian leaders took a stand against the threat of Nazism.

Today, a similar threat faces Christians in the US, across Europe, and much more dramatically throughout the Muslim world. Radical Islam’s jihadist ideology does not peacefully coexist with Christianity. And Christian leaders-both political and pastoral-should know more about the threats they face.

Join us at noon on Thursday, January 26th as author, pastor, and human rights advocate Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo explains the threat of radical Islam and offers a clear and Christian response.

Dr. Patrick Sookhdeo is director of the Institute for the Study of Islam and Christianity, a Christian research institute specializing in the status of Christian minorities in the Muslim world. He is also international director of the Barnabas Fund. Dr. Sookhdeo is a prolific lecturer and author who holds a Ph.D. from London University’s School of Oriental and African Studies and a D.D. from Western Seminary, Oregon, USA. In 2001, Dr. Sookhdeo was awarded the Coventry Cathedral International Prize for Peace and Reconciliation, and in 1990, he was given the Templeton Project Trust prize for progress in religion.

The main ministry of the Barnabas Fund is to send financial support to projects which help Christians where they suffer discrimination, oppression and persecution as a consequence of their faith. The projects aim to strengthen Christian individuals, churches and their communities by providing material and spiritual support in response to needs identified by local Christian leaders.

Audio: Douglas Murray i Radio Free Delingpole

Det var dog en storartet kombination: Douglas Murray og James Delingpole. Herligt, herligt – take it away, guys! Fra Ricochet 21. oktober 2011:

New Podcast: Radio Free Delingpole

Smiley Microphone AudioFrom across the pond comes our newest podcast Radio Free Delingpole, starring the irrepressible James Delingpole. In this premiere episode, James welcomes fellow British commentator/provocateur Douglas Murray. They pull no punches as they fearlessly broadcast from “Eurabia” and discuss the hazards of publicly criticizing Islam, the U.S. Presidential race and their surprising picks for who should win the nomination, and wind up with a spirited debate the role of the west in the Middle East. It’s a rollicking hour, but with those accents, everything just sounds so darn dignified. And yes, we plan to do these on a regular basis — just as soon as we can get Delingpole a proper mic.

War is Hell: Get Over it

James Delingpole – January 18, 2012

The longer the sordid battle for the GOP nomination goes on, the sorrier I am that Congressman Allen West isn’t on the candidates list. His nuanced, informed, honest, morally courageous response to the story of the US marines caught on camera urinating on the bodies of Taliban fighters is another reason why.

Audio & artikler: Roger Scruton om alt muligt

BBC skriver på sin hjemmeside, at denne audio er tilgængelig indtil år 2099. Det tror jeg så ikke lige på, men jeg linker til den alligevel:

Night Waves

Audio Icon AnimatedMatthew Sweet talks to Roger Scruton about his new book, Green Philosophy. He argues that conservatism is far better suited to tackle environmental problems than either liberalism or socialism.

W G Sebald is a writer whose reputation in Britain has soared to almost cult like status since his death in 2001. With the release of a new documentary, Amanda Hopkinson and Kevin Jackson discuss his legacy.

Susannah Clapp is here with a first night review of Nicholas Wright’s new play, Travelling Light, which stars Antony Sher as a film director looking back at his childhood.

And, as the debate over Scottish Independence continues we consider the notion of being Scottish.

Nature, nurture and liberal values

Roger Scruton – 25th January 2012

Biology determines our behaviour more than it suits many to acknowledge. But people—and politics and morality—cannot be described just by neural impulses

Human beings are diverse and live in diverse ways. Should we accept that we are diverse by nature, having followed separate evolutionary paths? Or should we suppose that we share our biological inheritance, but develop differently according to environment and culture? Over recent years scientific research has reshaped this familiar “nature-nurture” debate, which remains central to our understanding of human nature and morality.

Uriasposten om Danmarks Radio:

Et klart mønster tegner sig. Konservative medier får etiketten ‘højreorienteret’, hvorimod venstreorienterede får ‘uafhængig’, ‘velanset’ eller ‘troværdig’.
