The part of that video that I found most entertaining was hearing Dawkins' say "fuck" over and over, while reading his hate email. This is probably just my own mental image of him, but he is always so "proper" and intellectual, it is jarring to hear him use that word, which caused me to laugh out loud.

Goes to show, people call him strident and extreme, yet I'm mildly shocked just to hear him use a cuss word.

Noticeable that you should explicitly cite my question while simultaneously failing to directly address it. The old "moving goalposts" syndrome, I see . . .

You replied to a post that wasn't addressed to you, so as it happens, I assume your "question" was referring to the argument I was arguing with.

Did I argue that Condell was endorsing christianity anywhere? No I didn't.

Once again, if it needs repeating, Condell DOES draw a distinction between christianity and islam....islam should be LEGALLY blocked from assembling on private property.

Now you find me a quote of him saying the exact same thing about christians and I'll say I've been unfair, but I've watched every single Condell video....I've been a subscriber since day one. I'm pretty sure it doesn't exist.

Comment 192 by david1111 :

I'm curious. Given that Hitler, Stalin and the Taliban actually came to power and quickly extinuished the very freedoms you claim to affirm, what bulwark(s) exactly do you think allows your freedoms to operate?

Furthermore, if you genuinely affirm free-speech, that inevitably brings you into conflict with political correctness and multiculturalism, since the exercise of free speech and enquiry will bring grave offense to many groups. You simply can't square this circle, so I can only assume you're a genuine "libertarian"?

I your mind there is no such thing as freedom of speech. Only "approved" speech, and that other stuff that should be outlawed.

Or perhaps you are confusing action vs speech. The Nazi sympathizer speaking his garbage, is quite a bit different to stuffing jews in a box and gassing them. In case the distinction is too nuanced, one of those examples is mere expression of thought, where as the other is action.

I'm confused, perhaps you can enlighten me? Don't these people realise Condell is explicitly critical of Christianity?

It seems to be suggested at many points in this thread that the people that disagree with Condell are endorsing Islam, have sympathy for Islam, etc.

Condell isn't arguing that legal action should be taken to prevent building of christian churches however, which is why I find it a noteworthy distinction.
