Richard Dawkins, militant atheist and author of The God Delusion, is becoming an embarrassment to the agnostic/atheist/secularist community for the way he has developed a cult of personality. His website encourages people to join the “Reason Circle.” A donation of $85 a month buys discounts on his merchandise and the chance to meet someone from his foundation—but not Dawkins. For that you have to pay $5,000 a year. For $100,000 a year, backers get a private breakfast or lunch with the man himself. “At this point it is obvious to everyone except the participants that what we have here is a religion without the good bits,” says religion columnist Andrew Brown (Spectator, August 16).
