Atheist groups feeling the need to prove themselves
I've noticed lately that some local Atheist groups are doing things to clean up parks, and other charity work, because they feel the need to prove to Christians, and society, that they are good people. It seems they are just buying into what people say and think they need to address it and change perceptions. I've also had atheists tell me it is not polite to try to argue with Christians. Of course most people on this site probably do not feel that way, but I think confrontation is very important, rather than just keeping your mouth shut and try to prove yourself a moral person to them. Christians may not realize this, but they use their own reason to determine which parts of the Bible to apply to their lives. What do you all think? Is this worth addressing? Should we feel the need to be out there to prove ourselves?
