Atheist Richard Dawkins warns against celebrating demise of ‘relatively benign’ Christianity in Europe

 

Atheist author and evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins has warned against celebrating the demise of Christianity, calling it a “relatively benign” faith compared to others, amid reports the religion is “dying” in Europe.

“Before we rejoice at the death throes of the relatively benign Christian religion, let’s not forget Hilaire Belloc’s menacing rhyme: ‘Always keep a-hold of nurse For fear of finding something worse,’” The God Delusion author tweeted to his 2.74 million followers earlier this week….

Previously, Dawkins, who was famously canned from a Berkeley campus appearance last year after organizers learned about his criticisms of Islam, admitted he has some concern about the decline of Christianity, “in so far as Christianity might be a bulwark against something worse.”

In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
