I must say that MineralMan does not deserve such an attack. I have had a few dialogues with him in the past, specifically during the Roy Moore/Ten Commandments case, and while he chooses not to believe, he has never insulted those of us who do. Not to my knowledge anyway. Further more, he is straightforward in his expressions and in no way did he "sneak" a jab in. If he has something to say he does so directly from what I have seen of his posts. He doesn't "push" his atheism in that he insults believers as some non believers have done. He is very respectful in his replies on matters of faith and religious rights. While I wish he did believe, I respect his choice not to. I do so because he has respected my choice TO believe in past conversations and he was cordial to me. He is the only self described atheist that I have ever respected. Instead of being so disparaging, dismissive and condemning towards him wouldn't it be more productive to pray for him that his heart become open and receptive to the love and knowledge of Christ? After all, isn't that what a REAL Christian does? I'm sorry but I feel that the attack on the man was unwarranted.
