Hmm, I'm starting to think that I'm some kind of "minority religion" magnet. Am I wearing a big sign that begs proselytizing religions to come and convert me or what?? And not only that, but I don't even draw local religious nuts, I draw ones from away!!
I started talking to a guy last year and we start dating, and of all the guys out there, he's a Jehovah's Witness, go figure. I haven't seen one around here in years, but I managed to find one on the Internet, and he lives in Oregon. True, he's not trying to convert me, but what the hell?? I've never had a Jehovah's Witness in my life before, they're very rare around here, and then boom, I fall head over heels for one of them.
Then today, I was sitting on a bench at the mall, waiting for some friends to show up for a movie, and a pair of Mormon missionaries just appeared out of nowhere and start in on me, trying to preach to me, trying to set up a meeting with some local missionaries to convert me, trying to tell me that my religion is wrong and that theirs is right. What the hell?? I was sitting in a mall, of all places, and someone tried to convert me!! I haven't even seen a Mormon in the province in the last 10 years or so, and out of the blue, two missionaries, one from British Columbia, one from Utah (duh), just show up and try to con me into meeting with their local missionaries and converting.
Really, am I wearing a "Convert Me" sign or what?? For years, I don't see any of these types around, and then, all of a sudden, I'm swamped by them!! I'm starting to wonder if there's a conspiracy out there. Should I be taking a hint, or what?? Do these people see me as an easy target or do they just like the challenge of trying to convert someone new?? Do I really look so spiritually challenged??
I don't want to convert!! I like my faith!! I suddenly feel the urge to run to the safety of the nearest Anglican cathedral and stay there for a while, it always freaks me out when someone tries to convert me.
Religious nuts, LEAVE ME ALONE!!
