I was surprised to find myself agreeing with much of what Victor Davis Hanson said in his column Oct. 29 about radical Islam imposing the Dark Ages in the Middle East. However, he needs to look closer to home as well.
The religious right is intent on breaking down the wall of separation between church and state and imposing Christianity as the state religion, whether by law or fact. It was Christianity that was responsible for the Dark Ages in Europe.
