I do hope that you are aware of the "blissful irony" demonstrated by your own post.

Whatever one personally believes, openly declaring that the "other side" is both evil and closed minded does nothing to open minds.
I agree that trying to persuade people who hold firm convictions which one opposes is extremely frustrating. Declaring that in toto there is no chance to persuade them otherwise does nothing to actually persuade them and is directly contradicted by the huge number of persons who have actually changed their opinions in recent years in such contexts, for example, as same sex marriage.
