Dawkins Deservedly Pummels the Pope

In this video Richard Dawkins rightly takes the Pope to task for borrowing a page from the Ben Stein’s book and going Godwinian against atheists. This is a Discovery Institute tactic — pretend that all atheists are potential Nazis when really European Catholics, like those in Vlaams Belang, are much more likely candidates for the Nazi party. What I really do not get is how a moral coward like Ratzinger who marched wearing a “Gott mit uns” belt buckle while in the Wehrmacht can make such a bogus claim. Reality belies the Pope’s claim, indeed it seems that religious moral cowards are more likely to become Nazis than atheists, after all the current Pope did.
