Gun-toting atheist Craig Stephen Hicks stands accused of shooting to death three young Muslims in North Carolina.
Hey, that's what atheists do, right?
I'm very aware of the rush by religious believers to tie Hicks' atheism to his motivation.
I'm also well aware that atheists are often guilty of using the same tactic.
Should extremists within the respective religious and non-religious worldviews serve as examples of logic carried to conclusion? Do we own the extremists in our chosen view?
Prominent atheist Richard Dawkins asked:
How could any decent person NOT condemn the vile murder of three young US Muslims in Chapel Hill?
Let's all agree.
Can we also agree that extremism is not an argument against a particular worldview?
