And there you go. Many of those ‘batshit christians’ are not what you believe them to be. Many are reasonable, compassionate people who would be glad to get to know you and you would find yourself happy to know them. They simply have a different worldview than you. But you won’t know that until you engage them. And that it seems is what the author of the piece is probably going to learn next. Knowing the other side does *NOT* mean you won’t disagree. But it does mean you will actually have a dialogue.
And maybe both sides will learn from the other.
