… earlier this month, something quietly snapped as I listened to two Jehovah’s Witnesses at my door. Actually, I only listened to one — there’s always a Talker and what I guess you’d call…a witness. The Talker had started by reading me a weirdly mundane verse from Psalms, then asked for my reaction. What follows is as close to verbatim as I can recall.

This is brilliant. Go read it now.

Thanks Natalie for sending me the link.

  1. I’ve started telling them it’s a load of nonsense and explaining why I think so. It feels good. Other than polite bewilderment in the Talker and covert hostility in the Handler, the only reaction has been a Jesus booklet covertly slipped into my mailbox. Hmmm, I wonder if I should return the favour to the nearest evangelical church with a Santa colouring book and a note saying I was reciprocating pleasant fictions? “Dear Christians: Thanks for the story book; please accept this one in return. It has a similar theme and is just as believable.”
