This reminds me of my 2 months of bible study last summer, before I got dumped for not just accepting without questioning. Something the PO said stuck in my memory more than anything else.
He spoke of the good old days, conversions, conventions etc. But then he went all sad, and said how nobody joins these days, not for years, no one is interested anymore.
This gave me a real boost, the good guys really are winning. They may keep many from leaving, but there is so much information available they will get very few new recruits, and only lazy people with problems, or no access to books or the web.
