THERE'S a crack in the armour of just about every atheist I've met. Brian Austin is happy to be 'mentioned in the same letter' but goes on to say that he has no time for God. The remark about the 'lowest common denominator' seems demeaning to the people who grieve, even for the loss of buildings, which I repeat, was not what the service on the pier was about. If Brian means 'lowest common people', they were the very first for who Jesus made a bee-line.When I was hospital chaplain I had the privilege of meeting many people who claimed to be atheists, but when I dug deeper they'd simply stopped going to church because, like Brian, they'd been turned off by over-zealous Christians. I beg him, and others like him, do not let people put you off God. He is far more gracious than the lot of us put together!THE REV GEOFF EALES - President, Weston Churches Together
