There’s a similar editorial in USA Today this week, “Secularists, what happened to the open mind?” The author rants about all the atheists lately who can’t open their mouths without calling Christians names, and he opines that we’re driving away all the reasonable Christians who might have been our allies.
I kept wondering where this guy has been for the past twenty years! Atheists, agnostics and secularists have been trying as hard we can to open a dialogue with reasonable Christians, and what to we get for it? Nothing whatsoever. As long as the Fundamentalists are the majority, they will continue to snub us and slap our faces every chance they get. I don’t like to admit it, but we sometimes have to be squeaky wheels in order to get any grease at all in this world. At least they can’t ignore people like Dawkins and Hitchens, can they?
