A Question Dawkins, and His Fans, Can’t Answer

When New Atheist Craig Hicks murdered three Muslim students, Dawkins condemned the murder as follows:

“How could any decent person NOT condemn the vile murder of three young US Muslims in Chapel Hill?”

But here is the unanswerable question – Why didn’t he write the following?

“How could any decent person NOT condemn the vile murder of three young faith-heads in Chapel Hill?”

After all, Dawkins claims to use the term only because it is “concisely factual.”
