Principle #5

“Any open-minded person should be disgusted whenever people try to silence their political opposition. I’m almost never disgusted with pro-choice people. I honestly think most of them mean well, but suffer from a combination of self-deception, flawed reasoning, and difficult emotional experiences. But I become truly angry when anyone attempts to shield himself and others from hearing arguments against his view by preventing his opposition from speaking.”

Principle #4

“I think we should accurately describe other people’s positions because it demonstrates that we care enough about them and their views to try to understand them. We should love the people we’re talking to and not just see them as an object, a mind to be changed. We should also be confident enough in our position to not be too intimidated to learn about pro-choice arguments and respond to them in their strongest form.”

Dialogue Principle #3
“I want to encourage you to start thinking seriously about the impact you want to have in your lifetime. You will make the greatest impact on the people you’re friends with, not the people you occasionally spar with on Facebook. If that’s true, you’d be crazy to not desire friendships with atheists.”
