There's a battle going on to save the intellectual credibility of Richard Dawkins. The newest issue of Skeptic magazine is the latest attempt to elevate Dawkins as one heck of a person and one phenomenal God-critic. Go into a Borders or B&N and browse, e.g., atheist Michael Shermer's tribute to Dawkins, whom he refers to as a "fountainhead of skepticism" and "the skeptic's chaplain."
I just finished Alister McGrath's brilliant debunking of Dawkins' God Delusion, and hope to make some posts about this in the future.
In the meantime, note the skeptic-atheistic attempt to put a pastoral-rational spin on the abusive-sophomoric Dawkins of GD.
