A Parody of Himself

Professional atheist Richard Dawkins is in danger of becoming a parody of himself. Taking to Twitter, he had this comment to contribute:

I feel sorry for the Pope and all old Catholic priests. Imagine having a wasted life to look back on and no sex.

Pretty gratuitously nasty, isn’t it? Aside from highlighting the important role that religious faith can play in inspiring kindness on the part of its adherents, it also raises one more suspicion: That many self-proclaimed atheists actually believe in God — they’re just angry at Him.
