"How funny that Richard Dawkins is so scared of the threat which evangelical Christianity poses to atheism and his beloved Darwinism that he has to fund a campaign to attack God. He really is the nearest thing atheists have to an evangelist while his belief in non-belief is held with a fervour which many religious people would do well to emulate, so long as they don't make themselves look as inept as he so often does, poor man ... The atheist advertisers will have to be quick or the bendy-buses will be off the road in Boris's purge, taking the anti-God message with them. Bendy-buses, like atheism, are a danger to the public at large."But it's not offensive or an "attack on God" at all, is it Stephen? It's a nice positive challenge to the hell fire message you like to preach, merely encouraging people to chill out a bit and live their lives. Telling gay people they're doomed to unbearable pain forever – now that's offensive.
For our part, we're still waiting to hear what he thinks of our Nine Lessons and Carols for Godless People shows (follow that link for ticket details) – if you're reading Stephen, you in part inspired Robin Ince to organise them when you wound him up on ITV last year. So thanks for that.
