Interesting article, definitely...but...
The only sensible point of engaging in any 'dialogue' with anyone is to learn-from or teach-to another re whatever the casual/important subject (other than kill time discussing weather/etc of course).
It's unclear as to what an O'ist would find worthwhileness in re expending effort to 'understand' Shinto-ists, Scientologists, Muslims, Christians (of whichever of the multi-varied stripes) more than is already known, re 'explaining' something to them, or (yeah, right) expecting to 'learn' anything from them. --- If you could clarify the 'Why Bother?' aspect, you're article (sequel, maybe?) would probably be fascinating. --- In other words, it's not clear where the 'fruitfulness' would be...or for whom.
