Look, are there close minded people out there? Sure there are. Lots of them, and mostly they are just scared. They have a particular world view and if you upset the apple cart by telling them things are any different they balk and resist and flail their arms in extreme protest. They stick their fingers in their ears and say "la la la la I can't hear you I can't hear you"
This phenomena is not exclusive to Christians. Guess what it happens with all religious people. Even muslims! (shocker!) OH but I've got one better for you. It happens with people who have no religion at all! Imagine that! Case in point.....the majority of liberals out there!
Look dude you have a hang up about Christians, and the sooner you face it the better. And when they speak, YOU put your fingers in your ears and say "la la la la I can't hear you I can't hear you" because you have a preconceived idea of who they are.
Why not take a page out of Ron Paul's book? He is so secure in himself that he can talk to ANYBODY about ANYTHING and come away having chipped away at their preconceived ideals without offending and without alienating them, leaving them open to rethink ideas or look at things a different way. Ron Paul is ever the optimist. He doesn't give up on people.
