I had forgotten about that one. That's a good story, too (Bradbury in his early years was almost always good), but it's not the one I was thinking of. In my story, two priests were arguing about whether Christianity and salvation was for humanity alone, or whether it also extended to alien races like the Martians. One of the priests decided to proselytize the Martians. I don't remember the outcome, but the name of the story was The Fire Balloons, and it was in The Martian Chronicles.

I'll have to look it up, don't remember reading that one.

Yes, it would.
