And you wonder why atheists bristle when the religious call them 'intolerant'

A very reasonable religious woman writes in on a show to ask Pat Robertson how she could strike a middle ground between herself and her boyfriend who is an atheist. He has stuck by her for a long time and the two obviously are quite close. Do we need to guess how the Reverend Robertson responds? Remember that this guy is still worshipped by millions of people. And they say Richard Dawkins is 'intolerant' of religious people.

I sometimes don't approve of Dawkin's rhetorical style (its unfortunate because it eclipses some wonderful insights he gives in the public's eye) but I can begin to sympathize with him after watching this!

There is no diff in people like Robertson (who call themselves as educated westerners) and the mullahs sitting in remote Afghanistan.
