Richard Dawkins Reading Out Hate Mail Is Like Religious Celeb Mean Tweets
The God hater sit down with his haters...
Richard Dawkins, just in case you weren’t sure, is an old atheist. He hates God, religion, and any sort of structured faith in the unknown. His twitter bio states that his approach to religion is “good humoured ridicule” and his book “The God Delusion” has sold over 2 million copies (as of 5 years ago).
Inevitably, the man’s got some serious haters. A lifetime of death threats and abuse has only gotten worse since something called Twitter allows you to send anyone you like 140 characters of bile in a nano second.
Luckily for us, Dawkins is pretty good natured about the whole thing, allowing himself to be filmed reading his hate mail to a backdrop of jovially twinkley music. Including such choice quotes as "why don't you stop being gay and have sexytime", it’s like the satan hating version of Celebrities Reading Mean Tweets.
Worth sticking around for the whole thing, if only for Dawkins' analysis of how to pronounce "biiiiaaaatch".
