Leaving Rome

Magdi Allam: “Lascio la Chiesa, che legittima Islam e protegge immigrati” - Il Fatto Quotidiano:

The Muslim-born Italian journalist who converted to Catholicism and was baptized on Easter of 2005 by Pope Benedict has now announced that, while remaining Christian, he was leaving the Church because of its dhimmi attitude toward Islam and its fostering of destructive illegal immigration into Italy.

Ex Cathedra sympathizes.

He uses an interesting Italian phrase to further describe the Church's attitude: buonismo. Buonismo, literally, good-ism, implies goody-goody sentimentality. What I tend to call highminded moralism, a compulsion to be seen as good that overcomes all considerations of reality or prudence.
