Thanks for posting this piece. I really like the author, I think we can call him a “liberal with sanity” like Ed Koch.
Today’s radical atheists are really quite a group. I don’t understand why they get themselves so worked up over stuff they don’t believe in.
But it’s only the God of the Christians and Jews that irritates them.
That world class moron Dawkins was actually asked about Allah the other day. He said he’d never thought much about him.
How mind bendingly S.T.U.P.I.D. is that?
To an atheist ALL Gods should be the same, some fake “god” that no sensible person could believe in. It makes sense for religious people to ponder the differences between religions, but not atheists.
He’s just a stinking, stupid coward. Yet he’s considered “an intellectual”.
The world is truly a pathetic place. I’m almost sure it wasn’t this pathetic years ago, but I could be wrong about that.

I don't follow. I go weeks, months, years withouth thinking about Allah. Does that make me stupid?

Is that much different than you though? There are hundreds of gods you deem "fake" and don't invest any energy in. When was the last time you sat around thinking about Ra or Thor or Zeus?

Ah, I think I see what you're driving at. Unfortunately, this isn't how it works. Study after study shows that atheists know more about religion than those who believe in those religions. Atheists' bible literacy far outpaces Christian biblical literacy. It's just the way it is.
But back to your point, Dawkins, to his credit, actually "takes on" Islam as much as he does any other religion. (In England, where it's rampant, it's more of a hot-button topic.) I think his saying, "I don't think about a long dead fake prophet" was sort of a rib. Like totally diminishing the god of over a billion people.
