Obnoxious Atheist Declares Religion Intolerant
Richard Dawkins – one of those people who you can’t wait to see burn on the day of judgment – has a relatively new book out called The God Delusion. For more information on Dawkins, you can read his Wikipedia article. This is an excerpt from regarding his book:
The antireligion wars started by Daniel Dennett and Sam Harris will heat up even more with this salvo from celebrated Oxford biologist Dawkins. For a scientist who criticizes religion for its intolerance, Dawkins has written a surprisingly intolerant book, full of scorn for religion and those who believe. But Dawkins, who gave us the selfish gene, anticipates this criticism. He says it's the scientist and humanist in him that makes him hostile to religions—fundamentalist Christianity and Islam come in for the most opprobrium—that close people's minds to scientific truth, oppress women and abuse children psychologically with the notion of eternal damnation.
Dawkins is right when he says that religion is responsible for much of the persecution the world has seen. However, there are other culprits: greed, malice, and most every non-religious or religious ideology conceived by man.

Communism is the main example of a godless ideology gone wild. Communism, which professed to be godless, was the least tolerant form of government the world has ever seen. In fact, it is much easier to find a tolerant society that is run by religious people than to find a tolerant society run by atheists. Throughout the 20th century, the atheists proved themselves incapable of running government with any for of decency or competence.

The fact that some atheists can ignore their own record is confusing. They are willing to judge all religious people based on a few bad apples, but are unwilling to judge themselves in the same way. In this sense, these types of atheists appear to be nothing more than the average emotionally deranged, self-loathing, basket case.

They claim to hate religion (a system of beliefs with a stance on God), hypocrisy, self-righteousness, and undue judgement, but that describes people like Richard Dawkins more closely than anything else you could come up with.

It is also interesting that he claims science and religion can not coexist. This is the "you are with us or against us" argument that makes many liberals angry towards President Bush.

It seems like Mr. Dawkins didn't receive enough hugs as a child.
