14. it was just after the election

I was getting more and more angry reading about the mormon actions on passing 8 in CA.

I literally said I wish that they would knock on my door right now.

At that moment there was a knock and it was a JW neophyte travelling without a minder.

I invited her in and with some of my Seminary background and in a nice tone just ripped her apart until she realized how ridiculous what she was saying, that neither the word "Jehovah" or "Yahweh" actually exist in the Hebrew bible, biblical problems about both the virgin birth and the resurrection, and so on.

It was a massacre, not a good moment for me. I think my parting comment was "If you were a Doctor and as ignorant about medicine as you are about Christianity I could sue you for malpractice."

By that time she was sobbing and running to the street.

Where are the Mormons when you really need them?
