1) he damn well should

2) Penn may be a libertarian tool, but if you read THAT book in particular, he shows humor and compassion. Even Dawkins knew it was a better book, and he said that point blank.

Penn Jillette is a 21st-century Lord of Misrule: big, boisterously anarchic, funny, Rabelaisian, impossible—and unique. There isn't—couldn't be—better not be—anybody like him.” —Richard Dawkins, bestselling author ofThe Greatest Show on Earth and The God Delusion

3)http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/09/09/richard-dawkins-pedophilia_n_3895514.html

I am sorry, there is no way anyone with half the education Dawkins has should make that statement in public. Who the hell is he to define "mild" pedophilia? We scrutinize psychologists for trivializing sexual abuse, and they are at least speaking IN THEIR FIELD OF PROFESSIONAL EXPERTISE. You are a Biologist, NOT a psychologist, Mr. Dawkins.

4) I do hear you, however, I would not be so harsh if the mistakes Sam and Richard made were not so CARELESS.
