Am I a Narrow-minded Judgemental B!tch?

I was at Yonge and Dundas, dodging the hypnotized masses as I made my way towards Chinatown.

Someone stuck a pink flyer in my hand and I took it without thinking. I looked down and saw a list of generic questions asking if I want a better life etc.

Seemingly harmless.

The catch was on the other side.

The first word that registered was Hubbard.

That was all I needed to see. I must have made a face- how could I not? I folded it in half and dropped it on the ground- two steps away from the Stepford boy who gave it to me. This is the only time I have ever consciously littered. I felt a twinge of guilt but I was hoping the acolyte would see me drop it.

I suppose you can play devil’s advocate by asking how this “religion” is any different from Christianity. After all, Christianity was considered a cult in the early days. It is pretty arrogant of people to believe that we are the only intelligent forms of life in the universe but I do not believe that advanced beings from outer space will come and save my thetan.

Everyone has the right to believe in what they want and I have the right to think that these people are more than a little cuckoo-bananas. But why is it that all religions feel compelled to recruit? Is this mandated by the build-your-own-religion handbook?? 

Leave us fence-sitters alone. If we want you, we’ll let our fingers do the walking.

  1. Good morning. I have to admit that the title and screen name caused me to stop in for a closer look. As for the question imposed in the title, I don’t think you’re either of those things.

    On the issue of handing out pamphlets, this is something that I do as one who was once lost, but now has a persnal relationship with Jesus and desires to share this good news whenever possible. I try to be as non-disruptive as possible in handing out tracts. The responces are varied, as one could expect, but I just do what is on my heart. I’m certain that many of them wind up in the circular file while some may be read at a later time.

    The best way to spread the gospel is through verbal communication, but in a crowded setting with eternal souls passing through rapidly, tracts have a function.

    Thanks for sharing some nsight on this issue.

  2. Thank you for your vote of confidence and for your insights but I can’t help but think you don’t know me very well. 🙂
