Check out Chris Stedman, a secular humanist and a Beacon author, discussing atheism and Christmas on The O’Reilly Factor.

I regularly hear from Christians that one of the biggest barriers they encounter in trying to reach out to non-Christians is that they’re frequently written off. As a result, many Christians—particularly those who identify as evangelical—have a difficult time accessing people beyond the walls of their own community, and our communities remain insular and segregated.
The only way we’ll be able to break down the walls that keep us apart—the stereotypes and assumptions that exist about atheists, LGBTQ people, and various religious communities—is by finding avenues to discover common ground. I believe that interfaith and queer work are two of the best ways to do so.
