Richard Dawkins’ hypocrisy drags on:
Professor Richard Dawkins has claimed that forcing a religion on children without questioning its merits is as bad as ‘child abuse’.
In typically incendiary style, the leading atheist said he was against the ‘indoctrination of religion’ and teaching it as fact.[From Richard Dawkins: Forcing religion on your children is child abuse, claims atheist professor | Mail Online]
He’s just wrong. Not “religiously” wrong (well, he is that, too) but scientifically wrong. Wrong according to the empirical evidence, which he obviously doesn’t care about: even though everywhere he goes, he claims it’s the only thing he cares about.
This is mendacity multiplied. Repeat a lie often enough, and people will believe it. He claims that’s what religion does.
Next time you hear someone complaining about hypocrites in the church, nod your head and agree we do have that problem. Then, just for perspective, remind them of Richard Dawkins.
