I’m going to start a new series here that I will contribute to on a weekly basis.
Something that I have discovered in the past three years is that Christians can have of a skewed view of what it means to be an atheist. Until Jason came out, I had almost no interaction with atheists at all, so my perceptions about what it meant to be an atheist were not always accurate. I don’t want you to have those same misunderstandings, so each week, I will be writing a short post for The Christian Guide to Atheists. Because who better to talk to you about atheists and atheism than a Christian, right?
Okay, maybe not. But I do welcome thoughts from both my Christian and atheist readers. Christian readers: what questions do you have for atheists? Atheist readers: what are some weird things that people of faith have said to you or asked you? You can post your comments here, or on my Facebook page, or you can ask me on Twitter.
I love when people of different faith traditions can have an open and respectful dialog and despite the tongue in cheek nature of this series, I really do hope that we can open up a little bit more of that here. The first post will be on Monday. Let’s get ready to do this!
(ETA: Big thanks to my friend Jason Boyett for the new graphic for the series. I so appreciate friends who help out when it comes to design stuff because I am VERY BAD at it.)
