30 years later . . .

Apropos of the Nobel Appease Prize, this from John Senior, written in 1978:
". . . a terrified, fat Christianity toadies to the enemy in think tanks and university symposia, shakes hands with sentimental assassins, gives the reechy kiss of peace to Communists and movie stars at revolutionary rallies publicized in magazines and television shows -- like a rat running onto a sinking ship, it joins the dying modern world."
How appropriate to recent events; how characteristic of the depth of Senior's cultural and historical understanding.
