Dawkins Blackballed for his Views on Islam

Richard Dawkins was scheduled to give a talk at Berkeley. It was canceled because of his criticism of "Islamism." Read the Patheos article HERE.

Dawkins:
I am known as a frequent critic of Christianity and have never been de-platformed for that. Why do you give Islam a free pass? Why is it fine to criticise Christianity but not Islam?
PS I know this is a contentious issue, especially recently with the kerfuffle involving Dr James White and his critics. We often use the term "Islamism" or "Islamist" as a way to differentiate from Islam. However, I believe that these two terms are rightfully connected with the Islam which Muhammad created. Terrorism is the fruit of Islam.

Its so ironic but its true: Berkeley is becoming an anti-free speech zone despite being the birthplace of the 60s Free Speech Movement.

I pray he one day softens his heart to the truth, Jim.
