PZ makes a good point. An anti-creationist homophobe is not going to stop being an anti-creationist because an atheist calls him out on his Christianity inspired homophobia.

In Dawkins's terminology, that means working with the "moderates" to counter the "extremists", but it's actually more complicated than that...

Err no, I will attack their faith, because if anything they are contributing to global poverty (Particularly if they are against contraception, which I imagine they would be).
