Richard Dawkins has said

As long as we accept the principle that religious faith must be respected simply because it is religious faith, it is hard to withhold respect from the faith of Osama bin Laden and the suicide bombers.


Dr Stephen Venner seems to understand this. His critics seem not to. On what grounds are they deciding which varieties of faith are deserving of respect?
