Good friend and long-time atheist NZ told me of her Thanksgiving visit to her out-laws house. They began prattling on about how atheists are no good, hateful, evil, people who don't have any morals what-s0-ever. But they didn't realize they had one in the room there with them. NZ spoke up and helped change their opinion. And I guess that's what we have to do, engage in useful conversation on dinner at a time.
