"...there is a sense in which the moderate, nice religious people — nice Christians, nice Muslims — make the world safe for extremists.”Sensible Atheists will understand immediately the implication of this: if that is true for the religious, the the connection also exists between "nice Atheists" and the brutal Atheist regimes which murdered hundreds of millions of humans, some of which still control huge numbers of enslaved humans under Atheist totalitarianism.
Dawkins went on to say that moderate religious people who are kind create the notion that “there’s something good about religion” and that there are benefits to bringing children up to embrace theological ideals. He such such a notion leads people to believe in something without having evidence or the need to offer justification."
Further, the paradigm fits Atheists far better than it does Christians. Atheists have no common principles of morality; there is no document called Tenets of Atheist Morality. So Atheists have only whatever morality that they choose for themselves, and for many, it is totalitarian control of the Other. That is not the case for Christianity, where the principles are laid out in the red print of the bible. And that is a big difference from either Atheism or from Islam, both of which countenance violence and murder as a means to certain ends (read the First Humanist Manifesto and the Qu'ran for details).
Dawkins, being the numero uno Atheist in the world today, has thus produced a bottomless canyon in the path of any rational seekers who are considering Atheism. Admittedly, rationality is not a major factor in the pursuit of moral freedom, which is the more usual cause for Atheism. But Atheists in general won't be able to answer for Dawkins much longer.
