Edmonton Atheists Invite Theists to Join Them for Conversation… and It Works

National Ask An Atheist Day is coming up in a couple of weeks, but a bunch of atheists in St. Albert (Alberta, Canada) are taking a different approach to having conversations with Christians: They just advertise that they’re gonna be at a local gathering place and invite theists to join them. It seems to be working, too — they’re getting a lot of takers:

St. Albert’s Luke Fevin represents the Society of Edmonton Atheists. He said there is neither a formal presentation nor agenda for the meal that’s planned for 10 a.m. at the St. Albert Inn, which the group has been advertising to the public.

Group members simply want to make themselves open to the community at large and show everyone that they are generally a friendly lot that just enjoys healthy discourse on the subject. They don’t preach, Fevin said.
