RE: Atheists Need To Stop Being So Hard On Dawkins For His Blunt Criticisms Of Religion
I agree on several points.

1. Religion shouldn't have a free pass from ridicule. No ideas should be free from ridicule if they deserve them.

2. The hard, straight approach of telling it how it is has it's place, especially in a public forum. The softer, more personal approach is usually better when dealing with individuals (IMO).

3. It's unlikely that Dawkins really is as much of a jerk as some people claim he is. I wouldn't know, I've never read his stuff, and only seen maybe 90 minutes of footage of him on video. (My gf said he was super cute when he said, "Science[...]it works....Bi***es..".

4. Coming out as atheist (or at the very least not pretending to be theist) has a lot of power and is very important for the "movement" (if you want to call it that).

I prefer fantasy, but I have to live in reality.
