Richard Dawkins’ excellent speech at the Pope protest in the UK:

Wendy Wright, of Concerned Women For America, is so incredibly arrogant, condescending and close-minded — exactly what she accuses Dawkins of, telling him to “take a breath” (Dawkins was rather patient; she was the one who needed to take a breath). How dare he insinuate that she doesn’t read books (even though it is painfully obvious) and how dare scientists want to teach science to students! She has walked through the Smithsonian more than once, she’ll have him know, and that makes her an expert in all sciences, all of which are wrong (she inferred that the museum visits made her an expert on evolution v. creationism), and she knows this because she has perfect knowledge in all things through her lord jesus christ (I threw that in, but that is one fundamentalist belief and attitude).
Below is Part 1/7. I don’t know how I made it through all seven videos (10 minutes each) yesterday. Dawkins is a patient mo-fo for enduring Wright’s demeaning, I’m-so-holy attitude and psychotic laughter. Demanding evidence from Dawkins and when given evidence, she declares that it’s not because she (or god) says so (insert condescending sigh combined with concerned-for-your-soul look, followed by psycho-laughter), and expressing astonishment at how Dawkins can just accept something on blind faith without any evidence whatsoever. Irony meter melted.
Advice for creationists: How ’bout take that creationism/ID bullshit and teach it in your church where it belongs — keep it out of the fucking science classrooms.
