The question wasn't directed at me, but I'll answer anyway.

The answer is no, I do not actively try to "deconvert" Christians. However, when a Christian asserts that *I* am deluded, I correct them in a frank and certain manner. As I try to do with you and Richard.

I'm an atheist, but I try to keep current on my rabies shots.
