"You often wish that Dawkins would hit the soft pedal more often.

Unlike him, I believe it's perfectly acceptable to have children learn about world religions as part of their cultural education."

You often wish that people who write about Dawkins and his views would not be so fucking lazy. Dawkins has never said the children should not learn about world religions, and has stressed the importance of Biblical literacy for the full appreciation of Western literary heritage. He just doesn't want religion proselytized to children or smuggled into a science classroom.
