Give conversation a chance. :-) -- Ernie P.
Amid the rising heat of this latest culture clash, though, a few
people on both sides are finding calmer ways to engage, seeking to
build bridges and even learn from one another. Some Christians,
concerned that millions of Americans never cross the threshold of a
church, want to understand why, as well as learn what it is in
evangelistic efforts that turns people off. Some atheists, worried
that polls show they are the least accepted social group in the
country, want to break down stereotypes and change people's attitudes.
So both are willing to sit down together in different venues, discuss
their divergent perspectives, and, in some cases, jointly visit
church services across the United States. As a result, they are
sparking a growing Christian-atheist dialogue on the Web.
