Alistar McGrath on proselytizing New Atheism : "I don't like it very much"
Well isn't that too effn' bad?
Check out the double standard:
"They're really in your face. It's not sort of....here's a nice sort of Atheism...it's much more 'Let's get rid of religion' " : Alistar McGrath
He's certainly got a new fire and brimstone lecturing approach, but behind a 'Happy Face' mask. You have to give him an 'A' for effort.
His comments on Dawkins are also embarrassing and ignorant: " I do think he overstates, I also think he's just a little bit disrespectful to people of faith. They're not mad or bad, they've thought this through...I think we have to be a bit more respectful in this discussion..." : Alistar McGrath
'Just a little bit disrespectful'?
'We have to be a bit more respectful'?
Double standard much??
I wonder what his opinion would be if we took the historic 'Christian Worldview' approach and started burning people at the stake as 'witches' and heretics for their 'nonbelief' in 'Atheism' (sic).
The funniest thing is that he's an 'Evolutionist', and not a Literalist Christian.
His comments on what he'd say to George Bush's feeling that 'god' was advising him to go to war were priceless...
This is from a Canadian show. I don't know if everyone will be able to view it.
I keep asking myself " Are they just playin' stupid, or are they just plain stupid?..."
