Default Secular shit-stirrers

John Perkins, the founding President of the Secular Party of Australia, is a man of principle and believes the hijab is a symbol of fascism.

Sam Harris, the author of The End of Faith and Letter to a Christian Nation, is a philosopher and believes Islam is a civilisation when it is in fact deeply tribal.

With friends like these, who needs enemies?

John Perkins then needs to expand his vocabulary - it's not fascism, it's indoctrination and utter intellectual submission.

Sam Harris has a blind spot in his reasoning ability when it comes to Islam.

Friends like these may be wrong, but they are a) free to express an opinion, even if it's a poorly conceived one and b) wide open to refutation without censorship.

"Friends like these"? I have no more reason to consider someone a friend because they are an atheist, or a secularist, than I have to consider someone a friend because they don't believe in the Easter Bunny.

Think you might be taking him a little out of context here. Care to elaborate? Or not, dont really care, but i'm very familiar with Harris' work and i think this sentence is a little reductionist.

As is 'deeply tribal'.

Dawkins may very well be a pumpkin but he thinks he's a princess.

I've seen Hawking's foreign policy. It's as nonsensical as carusmm's rectal splurges.

And Christopher Hitchens was a raging alcoholic who advocated for war in Iraq and water boarding (until he was waterboarded himself).

Pol Pot and Stalin were generally accepted to be atheists as well. No one is claiming them has humanist of the year.

The only thing atheism informs you about an atheist like me is that I lack a belief in god(s). Essentially everything else about me is NOT informed by my atheism.
