stuckinarut2 - "When asked why, she said "because he was Jehovahs friend, and he was even willing to kill his own son!"

It was a little litmus test to demonstrate one's zealousness.
It's funny; back when I was still in (and thusly still more-or-less a believer), there was one time the BS conductor - a friend of mine - asked how the group would act with regards to resurrected Biblical figures like Noah; all the kids put up their hands, and you just know what the answer would have been.
Interestingly, though, he called on me even though I didn't have my hand up. I hadn't wanted to really answer, but rather than make a scene, I said, "I'd leave him alone."
Utter jaw-dropping shock, all around (it was priceless).
I followed it up with, "Would you want complete strangers constantly walking up to you, and asking, 'what was it like? what was it like? what was it like?' over and over and over again? I'd leave him in peace; he's earned it."
The BS conductor smiled and nodded.
(Needless to say, I've always been an outside-the-box thinker.)
