The slow, whiny death of British Christianity : Johann Hari
Johann Hari gets all strident neo-toxic sceptical neo-atheist (you missed "shrill" - Ed.): "As their dusty Churches crumble because nobody wants to go there, the few remaining Christians in Britain will only become more angry and uncomprehending." He's right about "whiny", though.

Renouncing Islamism: To the brink and back again - Johann Hari, Commentators - The Independent
The stories of former Islamists who came back from the brink, and just what went wrong to put them there in the first place. "From the right, there was the brutal nativist cry of "Go back where you came from!" But from the left, there was its mirror-image: a gooey multicultural sense that immigrants didn't want liberal democratic values and should be exempted from them. Again and again, they described how at school they were treated as "the funny foreign child", and told to "explain their customs" to the class. It patronised them into alienation. "
