So I don't know exactly what it is about Jerry and I that screams
heretic, but there must be something. For the second time in 3 weeks or so, people have walked up to us during Farmer's in an attempt to convert us. Yesterday's evangelists proved my hypothesis wrong that the further away from the street one sits, the lower the probablity of conversion attempts. One would further think that whatever Jerry and I do that screams
heretic would have been cancelled out by Lucas and Shelly's presence, but that unfortunately was not true either.
The first 2 guys who came by 3 weeks ago weren't too bad. Though their arguments had logical gaps and flaws, and the conversation very much followed the conversion playbook, they at least knew how to respond to the answers we gave. The guys last night, on the other hand, didn't. Lucas answered their questions well enough to be left alone rather quickly, but they didn't really know how to respond to what I was saying. I'm pretty sure it didn't occur to them that someone would actually leave their religion. They kind of just stared at each other every time I answered one of their questions. I mean, honestly, you have to do better than that when you're trying to convert people. If only there were some sort of
Do Not Convert list that I could be put on so people wouldn't bug me when I'm trying to eat.
