WND Rejoices that “Famous Atheist” Richard Dawkins Says Something Stupid Because No Christian Ever Has Said Something Stupid

This is going to be a very short post on a very current event. FYI, I’m very busy for the next two weeks, so it’s unlikely there’ll be many updates here unless I do it while I’m on a plane.

Anyway, here’s the post: “Famous Atheist Slapped for ‘Disturbing’ Rape Tweets.” By Chelsea Schilling.

The jist is that Richard Dawkins said some stupid stuff. I’m sure it sounded reasonable in his head, but not out loud when vetted. Like, “Date rape is bad. Stranger rape at knifepoint is worse. If you think that’s an endorsement of date rape, go away and learn how to think.”

Same thing with pedophilia.

Problem is that rape is rape, and his comparison in another tweet of “mild pedophilia” versus “violent pedophilia” is similar. And why did he chose pedophilia and date rape as his examples instead of, say, political corruption?

And there’s an up cry. And WND decided to post on it. It’s just two hours old from when I’m writing this up, and it already has 60 comments. They even have a poll going for it. And the majority of them are crowing about how amoral atheists are and you can’t be good without god and all this other stuff.

Because no Christian – nay, no religious person regardless of religion – ever, has said something stupid and insensitive. It’s only atheists.
