Even though the video is just over twelve minutes in its entirety, it's really only about eight minutes, the last four being music with a simple on-screen message.
I predict that not many will watch it because they fear that it will be full of atheist vitriol (because we atheists are such hateful people, after all) or that it will challenge their beliefs (again, hardly ever welcome). It's a thoughtful message, though, and what I take from it most of all is that we depend on each other in so many ways. We need each other, and should love each other.
Unless you watch it with preconceived notions and can't listen to it without forming your arguments against what he says (in other words, not really listening at all), I think most people will be able to appreciate the message.

think the both of you have done exactly what the OP was afraid of happening.
If this video was reversed and a Christian talked about how wrong atheism is and how wrong the belief was, but at the end told everyone we just need to work together and I love you all. I don't think you would appreciate the message of the video either.
I stated I can understand why he feels the way he does, but 90% of the video is very condescending. If a Christian put out a video like this there is no way you'd watch it with an open mind. I was very interested in his thoughts, unfortunately he can't express them without telling everyone who disagrees with him how wrong them are. I love him too, if that makes him feel better.
