Atheist Identifies Islam As The Worst Religion In The World. Will He Pay With His Life?
Richard Dawkins: Islam Is ‘The Most Evil Religion In The World’
Refusing to submit to de facto blasphemy laws, Dawkins then dropped the bomb.
“If you look at the actual impact that different religions have on the world it’s
quite apparent that at present the most evil religion in the world has to be
Islam,” he said in no uncertain terms.
The fact that Dawkins will likely require a round-the-clock security detail to protect
him against retribution by religious fanatics is testament to just how bold such a
public declaration can be in the West.
At the time, Dawkins was promoting his new book, Science in the Soul. The
popular new atheist figure has courted controversy before, angering Christians,
Jews, and Muslims alike. Nevertheless, it’s his critiques of Islam that have
attracted the attention of the Islamophobia industry, with “tolerant” progressives
and professional Muslim grievance mongers labeling him as a “bigot.”
The problem, of course, is that Dawkins is as liberal as they come; contrary to
his detractors characterizations, his denouncements are far from “racist.” In fact,
Dawkins makes a point of separating race from religion, arguing that all ideas,
all beliefs should be debated in an open and honest public forum.
“It’s terribly important to modify [Islam] because of course that doesn’t mean
all Muslims are evil, very far from it. Individual Muslims suffer more from Islam
than anyone else,” Dawkins noted during his speech. “They suffer from the
homophobia, the misogyny, the joylessness which is preached by extreme
Islam, ISIS and the Iranian regime.”
“So it is a major evil in the world, we do have to combat it, but we don’t do what
Trump did and say all Muslims should be shut out of the country,” he
added. “That’s draconian, that’s illiberal, inhumane and wicked. I am against
Islam not least because of the unpleasant effects it has on the lives of Muslims.”
