Josiah Allen replied to Not important's discussion Ever have this fantasy? Someone happens to see an athiest related item of yours and converts themselves.

Josiah Allen replied to Greta K.'s discussion how to practice "conversational intolerance"
"Just casually say 'I was always told they were metaphors.' It's best to voice your opinion, but not directly question theirs, as if you're sharing your experiences and not judging what they just said."
