Atheist Islamophobia... Again

Apr 9, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Religion Dispatched

Sparked by a Richard Dawkins tweet , in which he drew a parallel between Islamists and Nazis, Nathan Lean recently suggested on Salon.com that the most famous representatives of the new atheism "flirt with" Islamophobia [echoing Chris Stedman's prescient warning to fellow atheists on RD this past August]. As the article explains, Dawkins, Hitchens ... (more)

You called me a liar just because I believe in God. Calling me a liar or anyone else is not a good way to get your point a crossed. You could've simply said what evidence do you have to back this up. Try respect, it does tons for me.
Just like you "respected" the innocent victims in your religion's suicide bombs?

Just like you "respected" the passengers in those airplanes?

Respect has to be >>earned<<.

You have done nothing worthy of respect.

Who decides what it means to be a slave and what it means to be free?
You?
Society?
Our Parents?
And while you are answering that, tell what it mean to be free.
Since you are unable to comprehend what "free" means?

It is clear you are not free-- at all.

Sad for you.

It is like trying to describe color to a blind person-- you are literally blinded by your ugly, enslaving religion.

well, I would've made it worth your wild for you guys had let me finished. But since you said I was a liar and that I was trying to convert you, I decided to leave it alone. Maybe some day I can have this conversation with you guys but I don't think now is the time since I get no respect and have no trust. And like they say it's earned, right?

It wasn't 19 atheists in the planes on 9/11. No atheists put a bounty on the cartoonist who drew Mohammed. Or rioted in the street when the cartoons appeared. The riots were quite large, involving vast numbers of people, as did the riots (muslim) terrorists used as a cover for terror in Benghazi.
Suicide bombings are a near daily occurrence throughout the muslim world, especially Iraq, Afghanistan and Pakistan, although also not particularly rare in Syria or the occupied territories. We know you have not committed a suicide bombing (or at least not yet), by virtue of the fact that you are posting here.(Duh!!!!)
That's way more than a "few bad apples". That's bushels and bushels of bad apples. Vast orchards of them. All thinking their actions are virtuous because their religion teaches them so. Just as it teaches them to stone people to death, to kill gays, to main thieves, to commit honor killings. Add in all those religiously inspired brutes and one is left with the firm conclusion that there's nothing peaceful about islam and that it is more a case of a few good apples being mixed into orchards of bad ones than vice versa.
Lol, nice humor. contrary to popular believe, suicide is actually forbidden in Islam. A lot of times the media tries to explain why suicide bombers do it? Is it because of Islam? Anyways, if one looks at history they will find the answer. This is a great documentary that explains almost all of it. It's also from a western perspective and the guy is an expert on suicide bombers.

Seems to make sense.
Atheist-Agnostics may still attack
they seem edgy when their belief system is challenged

Why would this put them on edge? This explains an old age misconception about Islam. Atheist say they are more than happy to learn about the truth. So this should make sense to them.

it does make sense. all religions have whacko parts to them. all the abrahamic religions have parts of their writings that talk of killing others for god. most sane people know not all members of these cults follow those whackos or writings.

so no, atheists are not on edge. lincoln likes to provoke.

i would watch out more for other relgious members, that seems to be where all the bloodshed happens.

no attacks in the name of atheism that I know of.

BTW thought the President's attendance at the prayer meeting in Boston was excellent.

The president: Hello, Boston!

Scripture tells us to "run with endurance the race that is set before us." Run with endurance the race that is set before us.

On Monday morning, the sun rose over Boston. The sunlight glistened off the Statehouse dome. In the Common and the Public Garden, spring was in bloom. On this Patriot's Day, like so many before, fans jumped onto the T to see the Sox at Fenway. In Hopkinton, runners laced up their shoes and set out on a 26.2-mile test of dedication and grit and the human spirit. And across this city, hundreds of thousands of Bostonians lined the streets to hand the runners cups of water and to cheer them on.

It was a beautiful day to be in Boston a day that explains why a poet once wrote that this town is not just a capital, not just a place. Boston, he said, "is the perfect state of grace." (Applause.)

And then, in an instant, the day's beauty was shattered. A celebration became a tragedy. And so we come together to pray, and mourn, and measure our loss. But we also come together today to reclaim that state of grace to reaffirm that the spirit of this city is undaunted, and the spirit of this country shall remain undimmed.

President Obama is inspirational

Right. Forbidden but rewarded by 72 virgins. Nice, I suppose, if you like virgins. I prefer a woman with a bit of experience, but to each his own, I guess. I have looked at history. History says the vast majority of people blowing themselves up in an attempt to kill others are members of the Mohammed Fan Club.

No thanks!

If you cannot be bothered to use the permanent link, directly to a post?

I sure ain't gonna do YOUR homework for you....!

The fact is? You posted a perma-link, but NOT to woodtick.

You then claimed that post-- that single post-- supported your statement.

It did not.

Therefore? You lied.
