So many of these people have the worldview that the truth is what they wish it to be. They wouldn't put it that way, but it is the way it works out.<quoted text>
We can put that to good use in exactly the way that you and many others have already done. Had you known before your Topix experience how many were this extremely affected? I hadn't, and I don't suppose too many other people did either. Some of us have been arguing that faith acts like a damaging mental illness. The worst of these people are as far removed from our common reality as a psychotic with the prognosis for recovery is nearly zero, and they are not scarce.
Sure that's offensive to Christians. But if is true, with so much at stake, the possibility of being offensive can't be allowed to be an obstacle to making the case.
They find us offensive (and we realize that), but don't seem to have a clue as to how offensive we find them.
