Sociologist Alvin Schmidt, author of about 70 articles in the encyclopedia, told The New Criterion that never before in his academic life had he “run into this kind of politically correct nonsense.” I am sure that from now on, we will all be seeing “this kind of politically correct nonsense” amongst publishers with greater and greater frequency. Christophobia, and by extension, hatred of Western civilization, is on the march. Can you hear the sound of pulping machines? Or is it the crackling of flames? Whatever. The stench of liberty decaying hangs heavy in the air we breathe today.
