I get so angry I make mistakes
JohnH
Still in my sweats this morning there is a knock on the door. Not anyone I know because they would announce themselves. Two women, one african-american, one asian-american the former in front obviously carrying a bible. I tell them immediately that if there is a bible involved I do not want to hear it. The african-american woman asks what if it is about ending war, that kind of gets me and I respond that I am for that but god does not exist and I don't care what you think he said. She says something like have a nice day as I close the door. In full disclosure the above is my representation of the conversation which is why there are no quotation marks.

Afterword I thought why did I not listen to the passage she would read me and then ask how does that negate all the old testament texts about slaying this, that and the other non jewish tribe. My biblical knowledge being such that I would have to not be specific about chapter and verse (sometimes "revelation" comes to one slowly, chapter and verse clearly relates to the bible not normal books).

I get so angry when I am interrupted at home by salespeople, religious nuts, or others who have no business bothering me that I respond angrily and in the case of the religious inappropriately. It is so easy to throw their stuff back at them no matter what, but I always lose my cool enough to not respond properly. Even in this case when I might have agreed with the passage they were trying to read me.

"...the former in front obviously carrying a bible."

Disheartened. Bracing for Bull Shit....

I get what you mean. I love a good argument (obviously, writes on the internet) but sometimes you just dont want that, usually in the morning before you have had time to shower. I think it is half the reason they do it at those times - catch people half asleep and you end up catching the odd new member as they agree when at half their wit, or end up dumping junk on them such as tracts.

Do you know why they call them 'tracts'? It is because they are a small snippet of the fecal matter embossed disgestive tract that forms the 'logical thought process' of your average believer.

There should be a law that when someone comes to yopur door to talk about religion they should have a sign that says, 'delusional, don't waste your time'.
