  •  I have 'flake insurance' (none)
    In the mid '70's, walking down Main Street in Newark, Delaware where I went to U of D.  a friend who was managing the State Theater literally dragged my companion and I in to see Carrie.  Bart was obsessed with the scene where Carrie's mom chastised her and locked her in a prayer closet.

    When the movie was over, we formed a pact called 'flake insurance', whereby the three of us agreed that if we saw either of the other two handing out Jesus pamphlets or preaching on a street corner or otherwise behaving erratically, the others would to the utmost of their ability, do their best to blow the brains out and put them out of their misery.  

    I can understand that evangelicals think they are acting on our behalf, but I really wish they'd fucking drop it.  There are much bigger issues to deal with, like the budget.  The rest is noise.

    •  I have an answer for them (none)
      it's worked every time I've used it.

      If God wants me saved, he'll save me. If he wants me in your church, he'll make sure I'm there. Thanks for caring.

      It pretty much leaves them speechless.

      •  Great advice (none)
        I was in the campus watering hole, Deer Park, on night and a guy told me if he couldn't save me, he didn't want to live anymore.  I offered him my Swiss Army knife, he got the message.  

        But I'll try your suggestion next time.
