Anonymous said: Italian One - you are awesome. I am a Christian myself and I honestly don't understand how they can argue bigotry in the name of Jesus. Sometimes I wonder if they ever even read his teachings. On the other hand radical atheist like Dawkins get on my nerves too. Why do you think shaming people who are religious am telling them they are ignorant intolerant and backward is somehow making them reconsider their faith no you just sound like an judge mental asshole
I cannot stand Dawkins either. He’s so fucking self-righteous and rude I cannot believe he’s allowed to talk about religion because clearly he’s completely ignorant about it. I’m mostly pressed at how rude he was with Brandon Flowers mocking his religion on live tv right in front of him. I don’t know if I would’ve been able to keep my cool if I was Brandon but regardless it hurt me to see him being so hurt with this asshole making fun of something that personal.

People like Dawkins (and from what I’ve seen, Bill Maher) don’t do much research on religion and then rely on appealing to the emotions/morals of others to make themselves sound right.
Also, in the beginning of Hitchens’ book “God is Not Great,” he makes arguments against religion because one person made a false causation argument (the fallacy fallacy) and then goes on to make an ad hominem attack on someone else (this seems vaguely hypocritical).
Then there’s the issue of people misquoting and removing contexts from quotations so they seem right (google “great atheist quotes” for examples; half of the quotes aren’t even from atheists).
These things annoy me like nothing else in the world.
