Liberal Christians will side with militant left-wing atheists over conservative Christians, every time.
One thing that made New Atheism 'new' was precisely its redrawing of the lines to treat even liberal Christians with scorn, despite them previously being seen as ultimately on the same side as atheists.
One reason my concern for respect for left-wing Christians died was repeatedly seeing this play out, from organizational leaders to the lowliest combox commenters.
This is not a conflict that can be 'dialogued' over. The two sides cannot occupy the same church in peace. More and more, it looks like - more broadly - the two sides cannot occupy the same -nation- in peace.
