The Problem with Proselytizing - 29sep21
and professional sales,
and sexual seduction:
what do these three have in common?
What, to borrow a term from mathematics,
is their lowest common denominator?
they treat their quarry as an object
who’s autonomy and preferences,
are completely unimportant.
They treat their quarry
as a mere object
who simply exists
to fulfil the predator’s agenda,
whether that predator
is religious, professional, or sexual.
The Christians who engage
in this overbearing, domineering, coercive behavior
are forgetting the description of love
found in the thirteenth chapter
of the second book to the Corinthians.
They are forgetting
that love is not rude.
If God is all he’s cracked up to be
does he really need folks
to sin on his behalf?
And if the Galactic Emperor
was as powerful as he pretended
would even Darth Vader
have been able to yeet him?
Let us conclude
with a simple
call to action
