Tweety Dawk is getting serious now – he is using all caps!
How dare you force your dopey unsubstantiated superstitions on innocent children too young to resist? How DARE you?
— Richard Dawkins (@RichardDawkins) June 10, 2014
First of all, while it may be Dawkins’ personal opinion that Christianity is a “dopey unsubstantiated superstition,” that’s all it is – a personal opinion. Dawkins is entitled to his opinions, but let us remember they are the opinions of a closed-minded, anti-religious activist.
Second, as for “unsubstantiated,” I have documented on this blog that nothing could count as evidence for Christianity in the mind of Richard Dawkins. He even admitted that he has only been paying “lip service” to the need for evidence. So spare us the dishonest posturing, Richard.
Third, notice all the chest-thumping with the “how dare you” challenges. Dawkins comes off as an old man shouting at the kids to get off his lawn. But he does convey just how deep his bigotry goes. Imagine if the man who says “How dare you raise your children to be religious” actually had some real power. What would he do with it? After all, a few years ago, he did sign and circulate a petition to make a religious upbringing illegal.
