Tom Gilson -- writer with Campus Crusade/Cru, editor of Thinking Christian, and a columnist for BreakPoint -- had plans to visit the atheist Reason Rally with other Christians, to provide gifts, materials, and respectful dialogue to anyone who was interested.Then hereceived an email from David Silverman, president of American Atheists, basically ordering his group of Christians to keep their mouths shut or else. If they didn't want Christians to attend, perhaps the atheists should have considered hosting this on private property.
But perhaps that's not the whole story, because they have extended an invitation to one supposedly Christian group . . . the Westboro Baptist Church.
