Richard Dawkins has been known to ruthlessly criticize Christianity, but now that he sees how dangerous Islam is, he seems to have changed his tune.

Today’s face of the day is a famous atheist author who has always been a darling of the left. Richard Dawkins?has been a strident critic of Christianity, but now he uses it to illustrate what a true religion of peace looks like.


Well-known for vehemently countering creation and religious ideology, Dawkins has long been an avid spokesman against organized religion, Christianity in particular. This is probably why it?s been so shocking to so many that his best-selling book The God Delusion actually lauded Christianity as being the answer to a problem much of the world is facing today.

…Although he shuns the idea of Christ, Dawkins? admits that the best way to counter Islam?s violent fundamentals is by using a true religion of peace as defense ? Christianity.

?Christianity may actually be our best defense against aberrant forms of religion that threaten the world,? Dawkins concluded, according to The Gospel Herald.
The scholarly writer outlines in his book that Jesus? teachings and example never promoted violence and that this is the reason that Christians, while boasting 31 percent of the world?s population as followers, isn?t producing suicide bombers or beheaders. This is a stark contrast to Islam, which accounts for 23 percent of the population, yet produces startling numbers of terrorists.

??There are no Christians, as far as I know, blowing up buildings. I am not aware of any Christian suicide bombers. I am not aware of any major Christian denomination that believes the penalty for apostasy is death,? he said.
