Over at the National Catholic Register, Fr. C. J. McCloskey has a favorable review of a new book by Robert Spencer. McCloskey labels Spencer "perhaps the foremost Catholic expert on Islam in our country," but Spencer is more accurately described as one of America's foremost bigots. Last month, he and his colleague Pam Geller were barred from entering the United Kingdom because, as the Home Secretary said, their presence would "not be conducive to the public good." Spencer has been denounced by the Anti-Defamation League, among others. So why, then, is a Catholic priest in a Catholic publication fawning over this man's latest opus of hate?
