That doesn't really address why you believe those things...which seemed to me the point of the question.

On what criteria did you make your selection then? Is there more evidence to support Christianity over Judaism or Islam? (Or any other myriad of options...)

If I asked them to come over to my house to eat pizza and drink beer, then...yes. Otherwise I can be fairly confident that they did not do what I asked.

I think that many people would think that your view is irrational.
I very much doubt his actual opinion would change, he simply would not voice it in Kavar's because they are touchy about his word choice there.
