A church and an atheist organization each find themselves arguing in favor of the other's viewpoint. Under what circumstances?

Is it important what denomination of church it is?

Is it a viewpoint on which a church and an atheist organization would normally disagree, for example abortion or the death penalty?

Is it important what denomination of church it is? No.

Is it a viewpoint on which a church and an atheist organization would normally disagree, for example abortion or the death penalty? Yes, although neither of those are necessarily atheist positions. Not all atheists are political liberals.

Do they agree on a single issue? Are they arguing the opposite viewpoints on the same issue? Are they gathered in the same place? At the same time?

is the point to do with the existence of God?

are they debating the point as some sort of exercise? for example to understand the other's point of view?

is the point to do with the existence of God? Not specifically, no.

are they debating the point as some sort of exercise? It's possible the atheists are doing so, but not the church. for example to understand the other's point of view? No.
