Not when it’s couched that way. People only come to your side when you’re not personally trying to persuade them; when it’s not in the context of: ‘I’m right and you’re wrong, and the only acceptable outcome is that you admit it.’
Rather, what you do is chip away at foundations, with a long view.
One of my side projects, since 1991, has been to undermine religious belief. At that time, my whole family and lots of extended family were “born again” fundies. I’d gone to divinity school after initial formation in a Fundamentalist Baptist Church School, ’79, but had a very bad experience there; Tennessee Temple University, Chattanooga.
I moved on, still faintly “believing” the catechism, but by no means practicing it. Real life in those days was a kick. If living in a co-ed dorm in 1980-82 at a state university (Oregon State, Finley Hall) is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.
Initially, I displayed the hubris on the matter one would expect (at least from me). But in the last decade or so, It’s been relegated to a much gentler approach, with different targets: the kids.
Happy to say that I have a burgeoning atheist community amongst the young, both sides of my family.
I do gloat. I tell my parents and brothers that I’m the devil in their midst. Still get invited to parties, too.
