Richard Dawkins Pounds the Pope for Taking a Godwinian Page From Discovery Institute’s book
In this video Richard Dawkins rightly takes the Pope to task for taking a page from the Ben Stein’s book and going Godwinian. This is a Discovery Institute tactic — pretend that all atheists are potential nazis when really European Catholics, like those in Vlaams Belang, are much more likely candidates for the Nazi party. What I really do not get is how a moral coward like Ratzinger who marched wearing a “Gott mit uns” belt buckle while in the Wehrmacht can make such a bogus claim. Reality belies the Pope’s claim, indeed it seems that religious moral cowards are more likely to become Nazis than atheists, after all the current Pope did.
Richard Dawkins addresses huge crowd at end of Protest the Pope Rally in London on 18 Sept 2010, to coincide with Pontiff’s visit. Other speakers included Terry Sanderson, Geoffrey Robertson, Barbara Blaine, Pragna Patel, Peter Tachell and the hugely impressive Maryam Namazie (unfortunately I only had space for Mr Dawkins). Over 10,000 people turned up to display their contempt for the Pope and his church’s intolerant and bigoted views. Our state leaders shamefully kissed his arse - we didn’t.
