Speaking for myself, I'm far more upset when Christians behave in borderline
ethical behavior than when atheists do. I expect better from Christians. Richard
Dawkins is also a child of God (even if he doesn't realize it :) and deserves to
be treated with respect and honesty (even if he doesn't reciprocate).
