Richard Dawkins is sensitive to shifting mores regarding pedophilia:
Dawkins went on to say that one of his former school masters pulled me on his knee and put his hand inside my shorts, and that to condemn this mild touching up as sexual abuse today would somehow be unfair.
I am very conscious that you cant condemn people of an earlier era by the standards of ours. Just as we dont look back at the 18th and 19th centuries and condemn people for racism in the same way as we would condemn a modern person for racism, I look back a few decades to my childhood and see things like caning, like mild pedophilia, and cant find it in me to condemn it by the same standards as I or anyone would today, he said.
I would say Dawkins is living proof that pedophilia does cause harm.
In the effort to be urbane and nuanced and to see the world in muted shades of gray, guys like Dawkins have no lines at all. But why would he? The lines are blurry because each person has his own set of lines. There are no agreed upon moral truths, theres simply circumstances that have individual contexts that must be viewed through subjective lenses.
This subjectivity and lack of standards is how society comes unraveled.
Which is why the progs/libs LOVE them some Muslims.
Is that like the camel nudging his nose under the tent flap a bit at a t ime until he is in and the tent owner is totally out?
Obviously was a catamite.
Well now that queers are “normal” it was only a matter of time these creeps crawled out from their rocks too.
I think the atheists’ hero Richard Dawkins has finally jumped the shark.
“Mild Pedophilia”? Either it is pedophilia or it is not ... no such thing as “mild” when it comes to the exploitation of children for adult sexual gratification.
According to Wikipedia he had a daughter (born in 1987), would he have accepted someone having mild pedophilic access to her?
Holy Crike - you are so right - As Michael Savage has long declared: Liberalism is a mental illness (and it can really take you down to Hell if it goes untreated...)
Well, there’s a surprise, eh?
Obviously Mr. Dawkins didn’t pay attention when today’s liberals denounced our Founding Fathers for not following today’s politically correct standards.
His perception of anything relative to Sexual ABUSE being MILD... will cause MANY current atheists . and likely many others to view his other opinions in a far different light.
he could not have done a better job of self sabotage if he had consciously tried to burn his bridges.
Hooray Huzzah and...yes, Halleujah!
how ironic that his t shirt attacks religion, yet he did the same things that the non Christian lawyers sued the pants off the catholic church for.
(I guess its only a crime when there’s deep pockets involved).
Good God, this makes me sick.
A man who gets his thrills at touching a young boys genitals needs to have his hand cut off.
This will be a resume enhancer.
At the neck.

mmm... okay. Let’s get on with it.
“Richard Dawkins” <=> “Aluminum baseball bat”

“Gonads” <=> “Aluminum baseball bat”
