Gave this a watch or rather a listen... Good stuff, surprisingly civil and constructive. Kudos to the minister as well as our man in the trenches.

Yeah I was impressed with how the minister accepted Neil too.

RE: Interview with Jackson, Mississippi Atheist
He's very articulate and likeable, but he fails to discuss a very important point.

He doesn't mention the damage that Christianity does to individuals, personal relationships and international relations.

He fails to mention misogyny, homophobia, suppression of science and rational thought, or the time wasting.

He fails to mention sins committed by churches, both past and present. He doesn't talk about how people are being fleeced of their money.

He doesn't touch on the topic of the brainwashing of children, nor the teaching of hell to innocent easily scared children.

He avoids mentioning the fact that millions of people suffer unnecessary guilt about their sexuality because of Christianity.

Nice bloke, but he needs to grow some balls.

I understand what your saying, but it's a good first step in dialog with a church member.

I think the ground rules for the talk were to NOT mention those items. It doesn't appear that this was meant as a debate or attack session but rather instead to humanize the athiest in the congregation's eyes. However, I think he did touch on the topic of marriage for a small bit but you are generally right about the other topics.

RE: Interview with Jackson, Mississippi Atheist
Yes, Mark, mec and others are correct in that the talk was confined to educating church members about us. In Jackson, MS, this is a huge first step.
