Sequel, three words:
Atheist. Flash. Mob.
Uhhhh, not following you, then. How does acting just like them justify their belief that other religions are visibly different from them?
Or do you mean that they think Muslims are all brown and speak with a middle-eastern accent? Please elaborate and clarify.
Hmm, possible. I've known several Pagans who wear suits and ties, though. The women tend to add lots of new-agey jewelry, but the men don't effect much. It has to do with the corporate culture giving women more leeway in their dress.
What about Scientologists? They're usually more straight-laced than atheists, and they also get quite vocal. I guess you could cross off the Pagans, since we haven't seen much about them in the media, lately, but Scientology has been advertising a good bit.
Hmm, that's a point.
Okay, so they know it's us. I still don't understand why we shouldn't do this. We can't deconvert these sorts of preachers. Unless they come to it on their own, as Dan Barker did, they can't be helped. They're too far in.
We can possibly save those watching, though. The aggressive approach will reach some, and the gentle approach will reach others. Both are useful. Some people examine their irrational beliefs when they're mocked for them.
