Violent Milonov, an odious deputy of the State Duma, demanded that the speech of the scientist and popularizer of science Richard Dawkins be canceled. Vitaly Milon was briefly distracted from the fight against homosexuals and switched to scientists; He accused the ethologist Richard Dawkins in absentia of “militant atheism” and compared him with the Bolsheviks, who blew up Orthodox churches in the early years of the establishment of Soviet power.
In the recent past, the deputy of the St. Petersburg Legislative Assembly, Vitaly Milonov, is watching with interest and attention everything that happens in his native Petersburg, one of the most beautiful cities in Russia. He sent a letter to the organizers of the Geek Picnic festival, which is due to take place on June 24-25 in Pulkovsky Park, and demanded to remove Richard Dawkins from the program.
As an alternative, Milonov suggested that the organizers invite to the scientific festival any cleric or theologian who could join the discussion with Dawkins.According to Vitaly Valentinovich, an Orthodox priest will be able to find evidence and arguments and convincingly refute the scientific constructions of Dawkins.
Recall that in March 2013, Vitaly Milonov met with another famous Briton who positions himself as an atheist. Writer and actor Stephen Fry, himself an openly gay, came to Russia to make a film about the persecution of homosexuals. In a conversation with him, Vitaly Milonov said that he does not believe that there are teenagers in Russia who are being bullied because of their orientation. The meeting was held without witnesses, and Fry and Milonov remained unknown for almost an hour and a half. Stephen Fry spoke of the dialogue briefly: "Everything is very sad."
Stephen Fry was sued because of his sharply negative statements about God, but the English court rejected the lawsuit.According to the judge, there were not enough people in the whole of Great Britain who would be offended by the words about the “evil maniac”, whom he called the Christian God.
