49. Okay now I have to confess. I went postal on two Mormon kids...
The college-aged guys who wear dark pants with light shirts and ties - who wander neighborhoods trying to get people to believe what they believe. Usually, I just think sadly about how they are wasting their energy - but hope that they get something out of it or do something small but good for someone along the way. This time they came at me while I was walking my dogs with a SALES attitude - persist, poke, ask again - and I went POSTAL:

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THE CHILDREN IN IRAQ WHO ARE DYING NOW?
WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT THE FASCISTS TAKING OVER OUR COUNTRY?
WHAT DID YOU DO ABOUT THE CHILDREN IN IRAQ WHO DIED DURING ECONOMIC SANCTIONS?

YOU ARE DOING NOTHING THAT MATTERS IN THIS WORLD.
STOP TRYING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE WHAT YOU BELIEVE AND DO SOMETHING TO SOLVE THE REAL PROBLEMS IN THIS WORLD.
UNTIL YOU START DOING THAT GET THE F* AWAY FROM ME.

I feel disgustingly guilty. My responding that way is just wrong. Really wrong. I could've said something about their time & energy being better spent mowing lawns and cleaning the homes of the elderly or helping to build a community center in an economically-depressed area. I could've said that I will be ready to listen to what the Mormons teach when I see them acting out their love instead of preaching it.

Mea maxima culpa.
