In the comments section, Kevin notes:
On a serious note, every prominent figure and activist organization receives death threats. Christians and Christian organizations receive them. Atheists and atheistic organizations receive them. Conservatives, liberals, sports stars, Hollywood types, authors, TV personalities…they all receive death threats.
Indeed. But there is something a little strange about the atheists and atheist organizations – they sure seem to love their hate mail. So much so that they actually like to make youtube videos about it.
None other than Richard Dawkins himself derives great pleasure from reading his hate mail on YouTube:
The Freedom From Religion Foundation loves their hate mail too:
The Military Religious Freedom Foundation also enjoys making videos about their hate mail:
Very interesting. I wonder why they seem to enjoy their hate mail so much? 😉 They like it so much that they can’t seem to get enough of it.
Okay, we are left with two facts:
Fact #1: The atheist organizations enjoy receiving and sharing their hate mail.
Fact #2: None of these atheist organizations offer any evidence that this hate mail truly comes from people who profess to be Christians.
I think we are supposed to believe, on faith, that all this hate mail is legitimate. The problems comes when we consider a famous quote from Dawkins himself:
Faith is the great cop-out, the great excuse to evade the need to think and evaluate evidence. Faith is belief in spite of, even perhaps because of, the lack of evidence.
