Ok, I just saw some comments over in Rory's blog that bugs me (and so I have to blog about it). So on that note:
Rory, I want to apologize for every callous idiotic attempt that every Christian has ever made at trying to “reach“ you; I want to apologize for all the stupid arguments/attacks that many Christians think will cause you to move to our point of view; I also want to apologize for our lack of an attempt to know you and love you where you are at (and not try to change where you're at; but let you make your own decisions, even if we think they are the wrong ones).
I say all this for one reason; because I know what it is like to be attacked by religious zealots -- both as a non-Christian, and as a non-Muslim.
I understand that Christian zealots are the reason why people like my former colleague Ken Courtney (check out this post here) is such a “militant” atheist (BTW, militant is my term not Ken's) and really feels that he has to war with Christianity and religion in general. There's a bigger picture, Christians! We must never forget people's feelings... Jesus is not a used car that you try to convince someone to buy into.
