She seems to take all the correct positions and avoid the pitfalls others fall into!

She put words and even beliefs into Dawkins mouth. She's a Strawman extraordinaire. Trying to create content out of nothing.

She basically agrees with him. While saying she doesn't. She admits she is also a "cultural Christian". Enjoys Christmas etc. Then goes on to say that she is different from Dawkins because Dawkins said he is more uncomfortable with Islamic religious culture than Christian religious culture. It seems she is fine with more Mosques and more Islamic religion growing in Britain. That one should NOT feel any more attachment to the religious symbolism and holidays they grew up with than a foreign religion. And one should show that openness by welcoming more Islamic symbols to show how unbiased you are.

Its rather confusing.
If she has some beef with Dawkins about a perceived White Nationalist bias because of some other past event, stick with that. She comes across as deluded in the topic she is promoting....that Dawkins is some kind of bigot. Simply because he ALSO doesn't like Mosques going up where Churches were. News Flash:....Dawkins is a bigot, if you like, against all religions. Its the idea of an organized system of belief of an invisible being that influential men can take advantage of to hold power over others that is the problem.
