We, who find it unlikely that some sort of diety is in charge of "all and everything" should consider having a discussion about what activity we should invoke which will “do good" and bring our cause forward. It appears that our SOP (Standard Operating Procedure) is not bringing us anywhere. Rediculing (in a disrespectful way) both the ‘belief in’ and the ‘believers of’ holy scriptures may be funny and good for “internal consumption”, but it seems clear that people who generally sympathize with us and what we stand for are turned away by our statements.
My humble opinion is that a strategically well-thought-out approach for external use is needed because, as missionaries for an excellent cause, we need a common approach that will benefit our mission and create a mass opposition to religious activity, regardless type, moderate, extreme or traditional.
Am I on a wrong track? I will rest my case if the concensus is that I’m barking up the wrong tree. Thanks for giving this a thought. RedA
