← The Pakistan killings are not about blasphemy

Even the supposedly militant "new atheists," whom genteel commentators damn for their vulgarity, steer clear of religions that might kill them. Close readers of Richard Dawkins will notice that almost all his examples of clerical folly are drawn from the Catholic and American evangelical churches, whose congregations are unlikely to firebomb his publishers.

Nick, I have great respect for your articles but this is simply not the case. You really need to read the gnu atheist blogs more often, there is plenty of criticism of Islam.

Also, what does 'liberal' mean nowadays? Liberalism as become so incoherent and meaningless. You need a better and more coherent scapegoat to blame for the growing tide of irrationalism, stupidity and corruption that is sweeping western politics and the media.
