First throbbing vein in forehead of 2007

Who the flip is Tobias Jones.

"Militant secularists like Richard Dawkins are taking their revenge on us believers for refusing to stay in the closet"

Whoahh !!

"There's an aspiring totalitarianism in Britain which is brilliantly disguised. It's disguised because the would-be dictators - and there are many of them - all pretend to be more tolerant than thou. They hide alongside the anti-racists, the anti-homophobes and anti-sexists. But what they are really against is something very different. They - call them secular fundamentalists - are anti-God, and what they really want is the eradication of religion, and all believers, from the face of the earth."

Jings ! Crivens ! Help ma boab ! This bloke has been sniffing the incense methinks.

I personally think the world would be better off without religion, but very few of the people I know with similar views would even so much sign a petition against it, let alone beat up a person of faith, much less kill 'em all.

And what exactly is a "Secular Fundamentalist" - there is no text to insist is literally true. And you're either Secular or not - like you're either Pregnant or not.

Anyway the guy got flamed to a crisp in Guardian Online. They really shouldn't publish people who can't tell the difference between "secular" and "atheist". Especially if he's deluded enough to think he's the victim of a conspiracy between Sikh playwrights, Stand-up comedians and Oxbridge professors.

Dawkins is a nut job. Can't abide the man. "The Selfish Gene" was okay on the face of it, but none the less, there's a backdrop of lunacy.

On the other hand, I agree with you. Whatever secular fundamentalists are, they should tell the rest of us.

Most of us just want to get along, man. ;) God or not, there's certain things that are right and certain things that are wrong. Dawkins is wrong, mostly.
