David Robertson does his best impersonation of a 2ker (minus the fear of Islam):
Why is Islam a threat to our society?
It was Christianity that brought the sacred/secular divide into the Western world. It was Christianity, especially after the Reformation, which taught that there were two kingdoms and that the one was not subject to the other. It was within that Christian context that secularism was able to develop and flourish. Christianity is the bedrock and foundation of our secular society. Islam is different. Islam has no doctrine of separation of the spiritual from the political. Islam is, and has always been, a political movement. There can be no such thing as secular Islam.
So secularization is a good thing. The sacred/secular divide is a good thing. The separation of the spiritual from the political is a good thing.
What 2k’s sayin’.
I wish the defender of Christian Scotland would employ this argument when he is tempted by political Christianity.
