Tyranny alert …

… Richard Dawkins Punished for Inviting Us to Think > New English Review. (Hat tip, Dave Lull.)

The American Humanist Association, in withdrawing its award to Professor Dawkins for his work, did not in the least revise their estimate of its worth, but rather condemned him for obliquely expressing an opinion contrary to a moral orthodoxy at least as doubtful as any religious orthodoxy. Its closedmindedness is worthy of any totalitarian regime.

I, too, am no big fan of Dawkins, but I certainly he should be allowed to say what he wants.
