‘Hitch's and Dawkins' demented frothings about Islam’ – that doesn’t seem entirely fair. Both insisted that their target was religion per se, not Islam in particular.

Maybe I am just confirming Michael’s prejudices about the English, but Islam is a load of old bollocks, as Christianity is. When Marx said that the critique of religion is over, he didn’t mean that he thought that people were being unfair to religion, he just thought that the case for religion had been pretty well exploded.

(burning the Koran right now, along with the Bible)
