Mark Steyn on Paris terrorist attacks: the barbarians are inside the gates

WINTERY KNIGHT

McKenzie posted this article from Canadian writer Mark Steyn on her Facebook page, and I thought it was the best reaction to the Paris attacks that I had seen so far. The article’s title is: “The Barbarians Are Inside, And There Are No Gates”.

Steyn writes:

As I write, Paris is under curfew for the first time since the German occupation, and the death toll from the multiple attacks stands at 158, the vast majority of them slaughtered during a concert at the Bataclan theatre, a delightful bit of 19th century Chinoiserie on the boulevard Voltaire.

Inside the Hillsong Church’s money-making machine

While Hillsong’s charismatic leader Brian Houston presides over a glitzy religious empire, he has not only had to face a Royal Commission grilling, but questions over theology, money and his church’s treatment of homosexuals.

Sydney’s Allphones Arena looms out of the chilly dusk on a late June evening like one of painter Jeffrey Smart’s visions of urban dystopia.
