Today's Rant

During an afternoon walk, three guys wearing white shirts and ties riding bikes stopped me. As many of you probably already know, these folks were representatives of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. I told them that I was Jewish, hoping that they would decide that I wasn’t about to switch leagues. Instead, I was surprised that they were actually very excited (maybe converting Jews is worth extra points). I let them give their speech about the book of Mormon for a few minutes and they gave me a card.

As someone who has worked with multiple religious organizations (the Mormons were a huge help in several blood drives I coordinated several years ago), I am probably too nice just to dismiss them. However, I really, really, really don’t like being proselytized. I am very happy and comfortable with my religion. I would never tell people what to believe and don’t want to be told that I’m going to hell. Just leave me alone! Thank you.

If they don't convert you now, they'll baptize you after you're dead. You're theirs either way!
