The Selfish Gene and the God Delusion

Is this sarcasm? Richard Dawkins pretty much invented militant atheism.

More like he owned the term once it was coined by hypocrites from the other side. Much like homosexuals starting owning their derogatory names to their benefit.

If standing up against harmful dogmatism...through words, no less...counts as some sort of militarism, then by all means sign me up for the atheist military. I seriously don't understand the pandering of atheists to dogmatism, especially on this board. Doesn't it make you mad when you hear about people being jailed for blasphemy, or female genital mutilation, or gay children being driven to suicide through a hostile environment? Yet, when people speak out against this dogmatism, they called "militant," as though it's some sort of a bad thing.
