    It’s very shameful of you to cancel Richard Dawkins. Muslims are offended by everything, even cartoons and t.v. shows. So what! We don’t live under sharia law, we have nightclubs, miniskirts, AND free speech, except in Berkelistan, apparently.

    Really, canceling a speech by Richard Dawkins? Lucy you got some explaining to do!

    Dear Richard Dawkins event ticket buyers,

    We regret to inform you that KPFA has canceled our event with
    Richard Dawkins. We had booked this event based entirely on his
    excellent new book on science, when we didn’t know he had offended and
    hurt – in his tweets and other comments on Islam, so many people.

    KPFA does not endorse hurtful speech. While KPFA emphatically
    supports serious free speech, we do not support abusive speech. We
    apologize for not having had broader knowledge of Dawkins [sic] views
    much earlier. We also apologize to all those inconvenienced by this
    cancellation. Your ticket purchases will automatically be refunded by
    Brown Paper Tickets.

    Sincerely,
    KPFA Radio 94.1 FM
