Perk of the new ‘hood.

Sorry for the light day of posting yesterday.  On the bright spot, Cambridge and I got mostly moved into our new place in a neighborhood without constant gunfire and domestic violence audible from across the street.

And this place comes with a bonus…

Xenos Christian School.  Now if only there were away to make the students aware that there’s a guy across the street who needs to be told about Jesus like you would not believe…

About JT Eberhard

    You know it’s funny… I recently had some Jehovah’s Witnesses start coming by. I am actually really excited about it. It isn’t very often that I get to talk to people who’s goal is to convince me their religion is true.

      If you’re consistent at calling them out on their BS and having the facts to back it up, they’ll actually stop coming over. I got rid of them after the first visit, and it only cost me a couple hours worth of face-palming while a JW tried to convince me that slavery was humane and simultaneously explaining how slavery was such a terrible thing, and that’s why Egyptian hieroglyphs don’t make any recorded incidence of keeping Jews as slaves.

      I have a friend who struck up an acquaintanceship with some Mormon missionaries who would come by to try to convert her. They gave up after a while, but she said it was really interesting to hear about how they had come to Mormonism (neither of the regulars had been born into Mormon families) and what their thoughts were on the problematic aspects of their religion.

    The curious kids could try to cross the road to talk to you, but they’d never quite make it. Half the distance, then half that distance, then half of the remaining distance…

      I was about to make that joke…

    True story:

    I was a member of Xenos when they bought that building, and actually donated to the fund so they could purchase it.

    I sacrificed part of my Burger King minimum wage so they could brainwash the chillens.

    Xenos is pretty close to Xenu. You should go over there and ask them where you can get info on scientology.

    Sounds like you need some atheist signage in your yard. Bait the trap.

    Do they keep eggs in the basement that the Brain Huggers hatch out of?
