Richard Spencer, a prominent figure in the “alt-right” movement, was punched in the face while giving an interview in Washington on Friday. The punch spawned debate and a number of memes. In a video widely circulated online, Spencer spoke on camera amid protests against Donald Trump’s inauguration. Voices off camera asked him questions such as “Are you a neo-Nazi?” Spencer – who at a post-election conference in Washington famously led shouts of “Hail Trump” while audience members gave straight-arm salutes – replied that he is not.

For he takes no sides but instead manages to be fair to all in his wise judgments, while instinctively understanding both the appeal of faith and its pitfalls. As well he might, for Holloway is famously a bishop who stopped believing in God. A former head of the Anglican (Episcopal) Church in Scotland, he has spoken since his resignation in 2000 of a lifelong struggle to believe. Today a popular broadcaster and prolific … [Read more...] about A Little History of Religion by Richard Holloway – review
