According to The Friendly Atheist, Dawkins has now released another video (below) of the emailed threats and hatred that he has received from religious-minded people via his website.

The Richard Dawkins Foundation notes that the video was shot in April 2014, but has only now been made public.

Some of the emails state:

"You may evolved from monkeys, but leave me out of it. Have you ever tried to make love to a monkey? I mean I wouldn't be surprised if you have since sodomites are now running all our universities. But either way, I hope you do get sodomized by Satanic monkeys in hell."

"F-- you f----- f-----. What will you think when you are being basted in the broth of God's righteous indignation? I look forward to observing from my post in heaven the exquisite tortures you will suffer at the hands of the just and loving God who you have rejected f------ f----. God bless."

"I hate you. You don't think God is real because you're gay and stupid."
