Richard Dawkins, P.Z. Myers and other New Atheists are planning a “Reason Rally” in Washington, D.C. on March 24. They’re billing it as “the largest gathering of the secular movement in world history.” My first thought was why in the world would I waste my time paying this noise any attention? After all, this is the likes of Dawkins preaching to a choir of the likes of Dawkins’ followers.
But on the Christian Apologetics Alliance (CAA) someone pointed out to me there may be media coverage (even if it’s MSNBC and NPR.) There may also be an opportunity for rational discourse outside the polemics from the lineup of speakers. If you are interested, you may want to sponsor organizations planning to attend such as truereason.org. I know some of these guys from CAA and they are top-notch representatives of rational Christianity. Let’s hope and pray they will be given an opportunity to “share Christ person to person as opportunity arises.” I know if they have an opportunity, it will be capitalized on with 1Peter3 gentleness and respect.
