You know the paranoiac stereotypes of atheists held by many fundamentalists, about how they’re basically out to destroy religion? It turns out that Christopher Htichens, one of the most prominent spokesmen for modern atheism, is out there advocating the slaughter of Muslims just because they’re Muslim — because Islam is a particularly pernicious form of Theism, which is itself evil and must be stamped out. No kidding. Presumably Jews and Christians get a pass for now, but right now he considers us to be in a “clash of civilizations” against Islam, and he thinks nuclear weaponry would be a great next move in the conflict.
Because of this apocalyptic agenda, he favors Rudy Giuliani for president — he seems likeliest to take us in the genocidal direction of which Hitchens approves.
