A polite smackdown

A polite smackdown So, an atheist group is lo0king for someone to redesign their website. And a web design firm turns them down, saying, “Unfortunately, I don’t think we are a good fit for developing your website as we are committed Christians. I think it would be difficult for us to give our all to a website promoting values and beliefs with which we don’t agree.”

He replies, “Our foundation is dedicated primarily to the encouragement of charitable giving among the nonreligious but will be supporting both religious and secular charities. I would only want to work with someone who shares those values of generosity and openness, who sees the importance of reaching across lines of difference. Thanks for letting me know that you don’t agree with such values.”]

And then sticks the knife in (oh so politely):  “My current website was created by two committed Christians, one of whom is a past administrator for the Campus Crusade for Christ. They noted our differences but recognized that we share the same core values of mutual respect and a desire to make the world a better place.”


One response to this post.

    What a perfect example of atheist etiquette in action. Boo-yah indeed!
