Richard Dawkins’ prejudice, spawned from his hatred of Christians, has put him a a very awkward position:
In a recent Al-Jazeerah interview, Richard Dawkins was asked his views on God. He argued that the god of “the Old Testament” is “hideous” and “a monster”, and reiterated his claim from The God Delusion that the God of the Torah is the most unpleasant character “in fiction”. Asked if he thought the same of the God of the Koran, Dawkins ducked the question, saying: “Well, um, the God of the Koran I don’t know so much about.”
Sorry, but I don’t think any reasonable person is going to believe that well, um, Richard Dawkins doesn’t know much about the God of the Koran. You see, it’s more likely he was lying. It looks like it is pretty easy for Dawkins to lie.
And why hasn’t Dawkins taken the time (which he has plenty of) to educate himself about the God of the Koran? He makes a lot of money off the whole notion that he is opposed to “religion.” Yet it turns out he is willing to ignore one of the world’s largest religions. When Dawkins talks about opposing “religion,” it turns out he is really opposed to some religions – Christianity and Judaism.
His prejudice is on display. And to think that someone people admire and follow this bigot.
