Another anti-Islam rant from Dawkins

Richard DawkinsThe Independent has an article entitled “Women & Islam: The rise and rise of the convert”, which reports that “record numbers of young, white British women are converting to Islam”. Among the comments on the article on his website we find the following observation by celebrity atheist Richard Dawkins:

“Whenever I read an article like this, I end up shaking my head in bafflement. Why would anyone want to CONVERT to Islam? I can see why, having been born into it, you might be reluctant to leave, perhaps when you reflect on the penalty for doing to. But for a woman (especially a woman) voluntarily to JOIN such a revolting and misogynistic institution when she doesn’t have to always suggests to me massive stupidity.”
