From its best-known speaker, Professor Richard Dawkins, to the event's website, to its very name, this rally is not simply about protecting the rights of non-believers, but about the inferiority of religious belief. And, based on the promised presence of comedian Bill Maher, it will include heaping abuse not only upon belief, but upon believers themselves – something Mr. Maher loves doing.
"I really hope there was a lot of heaping abuse...…"
Well, I wouldn't call it "abuse", …more like, deserved contempt.
See my blog updates for some of the more delicious expressions of contempt (videos)
I found the use of the word 'abuse' amusing, I mean, it isn't as though we threaten people with burn in hell or anything....
If abuse is defined by statement of fact, use of logic, observation of clear evidence and the use of those in argument against a phenomenon which uses faith as a primary means of self-reinforcement, then yes, we abuse religion. If religion cannot respond with fact, logic and evidence to support itself, it only has itself to blame.
And as I have said many times, if religion can't stand the heat, the door to the kitchen is THAT way ====>.
