“Hello! We’ve brought you a message from the bible.”
“Oh. Uh, lovely.”
“Are you familiar with the bible?”
“Mostly as a concept. Which religion?”
“Jehovah’s Witnesses. Would it be alright if we came inside for a quick chat?”
“I’m pretty sure you don’t want to chat to me, mate.”
“Well, I’m gay and transgender. Organized religion generally doesn’t like me.”
I’ve never seen two grown men wilt so fast. Credit to them, they did hang about and give me a five-minute monologue on how God is very accepting and it’s totally okay to have free will, but there was a definite sense of fleeing-in-slow-motion as they edged backwards down the garden path.
