Aggregating Skeptical Thought

Christians and Athiests holding hands

I came across this article, Christians and atheists start a calmer dialog,  in Christian Science Monitor from May about Christians and Atheists coming together to better understand each other. It features Jim Henderson (the pastor who bought Hemant Mehta’s soul). I think one of the best points made was by Hemant Mehta (friendlyatheist.com).

The more work churches do for everyone, the more respect they’ll get from outsiders

Which isn’t this one of the overwhelming reasons that many atheists become humanists. Of course, one problem that others have identified is finding charities to give you time or money to without implying support for the charities underlying belief.
