Actor John Rhys-Davies gave a candid interview with Adam Carolla where he revealed his views on political correctness and the threat of Islamic terrorism. Rhys-Davies, who played the dwarf Gimli in the “Lord of the Rings” movies told Carolla “we have lost our moral compass completely” and said he fears the end of “Western European Christian civilization.”
“Basically, Christianity in the Middle East and in Africa is being wiped out. I mean not just ideologically but physically, and people are being enslaved and killed because they are Christians. And your country and my country are doing nothing about it,” he said.
Carolla responded that American society has become scared to judge others. “This notion that we’ve evolved into a species that’s incapable of judging other groups and what they’re doing, especially when it’s beheading people or setting people on fire or throwing acid in the face of schoolgirls,” he said. “I like that kind of judging! That’s evolved.”
The 71 year-old agreed with his interviewer and added that we’re in an age where “We don’t want to be judgmental” and “an age where politicians don’t actually say what they believe…Heaven forbid that we should criticize people who, after all, share a different value system.”
