Go to church, minister tells Wilders

Social affairs minister Piet Hein Donner has become the latest prominent politician to launch a verbal attack on anti-Islam MP Geert Wilders, without mentioning Wilders by name.

In a speech on Wednesday night, Donner said he found it disturbing that ‘Judo-Christian values’ were being used to justify excluding others and the use of violence.
Those who wanted to protect those values ‘should begin with going to church on Sunday where he will learn something else’, Donner said.
Wilders has said repeatedly that the Netherlands Judo-Christian values are under threat from Islam.
Housing minister Eberhard van der Laan has also recently challenged Wilders to a face to face debate.
