Dear Islam(the religion)



Member of the Cult of Reason

The atheist is a man who destroys the imaginary things which afflict the human race, and so leads men back to nature, to experience and to reason.

I'm not a big fan of Pat although I watch his vids to understand the prevailing right-wing views of my birthplace.

I admire his eloquence and his passion but he's too black/white for my taste.

Perhaps it's just cos of his use of ("lowest form of wit") sarcasm rather than (Hitch-style) irony.

Anything in that particular video that was not to your tastes?

I rarely disagree with his conclusions and certainly I have no problem with this vid.

It's the style that I think is possibly counter-productive as it is potentially polarising. Hitch's use of irony challenged his listeners to think critically... Pat's use of sarcasm invokes something more visceral.

I'm not saying that he should be censored, of course, for hate speech... I just think he is only preaching to the converted.

This kinda vid, not that I have checked the claims therein, is likely to have greater effect.

RE: Dear Islam(the religion)
Wow this guy is fantastic.
Watched a couple of his other videos, he's brilliant.

Say's it how it is, doesn't beat around the bush, straight to the point.

I think you miss the point slightly DLJ, I think these are just more of rants about how the world sucks rather then an attempt to persuade anyone.
