GLENDALE, Calif., Aug. 13 (UPI) -- Actor John Rhys-Davies delivered a passioned rant revealing his thoughts on religion, political correctness and the threat of Islamic terrorism Monday.

The candid interview took place on The Adam Carolla Show while Rhys-Davies was promoting the DVD release of Return to the Hiding Place, a film set in Holland during World War II.

"There is an extraordinary silence in the West," said Rhys-Davies on Carolla's podcast. "Basically, Christianity in the Middle East and in Africa is being wiped out -- I mean not just ideologically by physically, and people are being enslaved and killed because they are Christians. And your country and my country are doing nothing about it."

Carolla responded by mentioning 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 Lord of the Rings actor agreed. "This is a unique age. We don't want to be judgmental."

Rhys-Davies closed his argument by warning listeners that "we have lost our moral compass completely, and unless we find it, we're going to lose our civilization. I think we're going to lose Western European Christian civilization anyway"

The Adam Carolla Show is a free daily comedy podcast available on I-Tunes.
