JOHN CHUCKMAN COMMENT: MORE ANTI-MUSLIM PREJUDICE – NOT TO BE TAKEN TOO SERIOUSLY COMING AS IT DOES FROM CHEESY POTBOILER NOVELIST SEBASTIAN FAULKS   Leave a comment

POSTED RESPONSE TO A COLUMN BY SEBASTIAN FAULKS IN THE TELEGRAPH

I really cannot understand the kind of behavior Sebastian Faulks has displayed outside of his suffering from serious anti-Muslim prejudice.

Why pick the religious literature of one faith to attack?

Remember what Mark Twain said of the Bible? That it was full of blood and gore and upwards of a thousand lies?

Of course, it is hard to take Mr Faulks too seriously in any case.

He is a writer of novels packed with clichés, sentimentality, cheap cinema-derived scenes, and inconsistencies, but they do appeal to the mob.

And so does his brand of prejudice.
