This Is What Religion Is Supposed to Be About

The other day one of those people who walk around handing out pamphlets about God came into my church and handed me one of his conversion cards. Naturally, I was incredibly insulted and angry that someone would come into my place of worship and try to actively convert me, and I gave him a piece of my mind. I figured that was the end of it, but then the next day he came in again and apologized and explained himself and said that I was right to feel disrespected for it. I appreciated that apology so much. Religion is supposed to be about universal tolerance, not active evangelizing, and I'm very happy that he came through and understood that. Thank you for taking the time to come in and apologize and thank you for understanding what the point of religion really is. —Currently Loving My Neighbor
