The email contained the usual Dawkins-esque diatribe about religion (yawn) and mocking my friend Rabbi Maverick. I wrote a reply (below) and sent it to both the atheist “Neil C. Reinhardt” and the Maverick, but ironically after telling me how much smarter atheists are then religious people, his email bounced !!!
Well, here is my reply anyways:
Neil (cc: Moshe the Maverick),
I consider atheism to be the least intellectual of the positions you note. Face it dude, your guys keep losing the debates, and as for the gutless pathetic Dawkins, well he won’t even front up with Craig. He should wear a skirt !
You seem to forget that many atheists are (yawn) just doing what their parents did. I did, until I converted from atheism to Christianity.
It should also be remembered that the millions killed last century were killed in the name of atheism. Yeah, the blowhard atheist ignoramuses will go on about Hitler being a Christian, but this just shows their intellectual dishonesty. See Professor Richard Weikhart‘s book “From Darwin to Hitler” for example.
As for criminals — yeah right — you probably have no idea what a Christian even is. Of course American culture hardly gives Christianity a good name does it? And the American church in general appears to be about as sick and in need of a doctor as any church in the world is.
I concede the point about leaders. The simple reality is that it is hard to be both a committed Christian and a dedicated leader. There are only 24 hours in the day here in New Zealand and it is hard to be good at many things. Also, many of us have families that we are very committed to. And you guys have set up a nice secular priesthood, copying the Roman Catholic Church that you all despise so much (I don’t like the RCC either FWIW).
