TX Baptist Church Raises $$ for Atheist
A Baptist church in TX has raised and donated money to a local atheist who had once challenged them regarding state/church issues.

A Baptist church near Tyler, TX, is raising money to help pay the medical bills of an atheist activist who once fought against them over church and state issues.

Last Christmas, atheist Patrick Greene spoke out against the controversial Christian scene set up in front of the Henderson County courthouse and threatened to file a lawsuit, believing the display to be state endorsement of Christianity. But last month he backed off after discovering he had an eye condition that could soon leave him blind.

The Sand Springs Baptist Church donated $400 to help him pay for treatment.
