What a fantastically stupid man.

He seems to be making the tired and obsolete argument that our morality comes from Christianity and therefore we need it. He clearly hasn't actually read the books he's criticising.

Also this idea that the 20th century was one of unparalleled violence... I've heard this a couple of times before. It's technology and politics, not secularism, that made the first and second world wars as bloody as they were. Haven't we had the most peaceful time in human history since 1946? Up until then it seems that everyone was looking to make war with everyone else.
