Everyone should dash over to Fr. H’s place and read his latest: Transphobia, fox hunting, and the SS

It’s jolly good.

  1. PostCatholic says:

    A definition that was popularized by Sam Harris and Christopher Hitchens. Here in its original form, emphasis added:

    A few weeks ago, Ayaan and I had a long conversation about her critics and about the increasingly pernicious meme of “Islamophobia”—which our inimitable friend Christopher Hitchens once dubbed “a word created by fascists, and used by cowards, to manipulate morons.” [NOTE 5/11/14: This wonderful sentence seems to have been wrongly attributed to Hitch (who was imitable after all). I’m told these words first appeared in a tweet from Andrew Cummins. Well done, Andrew!]
