News: Christians raise money for atheist who fought them
This generosity story originally appeared on msn.com: Maybe we can all get along. A San Antonio atheist named Patrick Greene riled up members of the Sand Springs Baptist Church when he threatened to sue the Christians for putting up a nativity scene in front of the Henderson County courthouse last Christmas.
But then, last month, Greene discovered he had a deteriorating eye disease that may soon leave him blind, notes the Houston Chronicle. So now, Greene is getting help from fellow atheists -- and the group of Christians he vowed to sue, reports the Friendly Atheist blog. The church has donated $400 to pay for possible surgery. Greene accepted the money and thanked the "real Christians" for the help.
