THE GODS OF THE COPYBOOK HEADINGS COULD NOT BE REACHED FOR COMMENT.

Then: “Bearded God-Killers” of the late 19th century taught Europeans to think “beyond good and evil,” paving the way for the immense bloodshed of the morally relativistic 20th century. (And inspiring a legion of American “Progressives” along the way.)

Now: Europe is having to teach bearded potential killers “the difference between right and wrong,” as the New York Times notes:

“The biggest danger for everyone is silence,” said Per Isdal, a clinical psychologist in Stavanger who works with the foundation, which developed the program Mr. Kelifa attended in Sandes.

Many refugees “come from cultures that are not gender equal and where women are the property of men,” Mr. Isdal said. “We have to help them adapt to their new culture.”

The first such program to teach immigrants about local norms and how to avoid misreading social signals was initiated in Stavanger, the center of Norway’s oil industry and a magnet for migrants, after a series of rapes from 2009 to 2011.

Henry Ove Berg, who was Stavanger’s police chief during the spike in rape cases, said he supported providing migrants sex education because “people from some parts of the world have never seen a girl in a miniskirt, only in a burqa.” When they get to Norway, he added, “something happens in their heads.”

You don’t say.
