Traditional atheists have claimed that Richard Dawkins' Easter messages risks causing a schism in atheism. Dawks, the followers of Dawkins have denied this.
Traditionalists blame Dawkins and his brand of atheism for trying to subvert a gentle and moderate system of non belief. "Atheism used to be for those of us who found religion too boring or just couldn't be bothered" said David Wilson, "but Dawkins fundamentalist brand of atheism is at odds with this."
Susan Blackmore, a follower of Dawkins defended her leader saying " it takes a lot more to be a follower of the one true atheism than being too lazy to get up on Sunday morning and go to church. Channel hopping through Songs of Praise does not count either."
A shiny eyed Dawkins added his voice to those defending his teachings saying "every atheist must convert 144000 people to get into atheist heaven."
