I feel as I posted, I should say my thoughts if I ask yours.

I agree with Dawkins, if freedom of speech is sacrificed because of fear of being branded racist etc, then something has gone wrong. I think we are too often surrounded by people that say nothing but what is considered PC, and this means we are all becoming oversensitive when we are contradicted or criticised. Let's argue! Tell me if you disagree! You can't learn anything if you aren't challenged.

I'd tell you I disagree, but I don't.

Most other religions seem to be better at taking criticism/jokes than Islam. Why is it that images like thisprovoke no murderous outrage, but the moment you put The Prophet in there, you have some serious and actionable death threats?

He's equally critical of all religious nonsense, so I don't think this is extraordinary coming from him. The man literally wrote "The God Delusion".

He doesn't take any bullshit from Christianity either.

The only people more oppressive than Muslims are liberals. Dawkins is a perfect example, unable to tolerate anything except liberalism. Dawkins is total scum, a complete hypocrite. Why exactly shouldn't women be allowed to wear burkhas if that is what they want to wear? My sincere wish is that liberals and Muslims slaughter each other until there are no remaining members of either group.

Muslims need to come to terms with the REST of the world's cultures if they want to live in the rest of the world. Saying "That's our culture" doesn't exempt them. On the other hand, I note that Dawkins is now championing a moral absolute. Fascinating, if you think about it. Where would this morality come from?

Morality comes from understanding the consequences of ones actions and thus you want to avoid actions that harm or hurt others.

But we have refugees and immigrants who left their nation and culture because it had oppressed them in some way. Then they don't respect the culture of the nation they immigrate to, and want to change that culture to be more like the nation they came from. Does that make any sense if you left a culture for being abusive in some way and you want to change the culture of the nation you went to in order to be like the one that abused you?

Of course not. I agree with you. I hope I didn't make my points that badly...
