It is just barely possible that I was being the teensiest bit sarcastic about referring to my coworkers as fundamentalists and evangelists. They are legends in their own mind when it comes to spiritual purity.

Maybe “fanatics” would describe them more accurately. They declare the Pope to be the devil, and boast that in a one on one debate each could administer severe theological beatdown to the current Pontiff. I’ve offered to fly them to the Vatican. One way.

In effect, they are trying to convert me to Christianity. Neither gives Christmas gifts to his children, calling that practice “pagan” and “of the devil”.

I have a calendar in my shop featuring paintings that depict the Infant Jesus and Mary His Mother, by various Renaissance artists. Drives them bonkers.

No, they're not. From all appearances, you're already a Christian. They're trying to convert you to their man-made un-Biblical cult.

The thing I love about people like that is they have so much joy in their lives. /sarcasm

The Pastor’s wife asked us if we could bring in some of our own ornaments to help decorate the church for Christmas. Among other things, I brought in a lovely picture of Mary and the baby Jesus. The Pastor’s wife took one look at it and declared it was “too Catholic looking” and that the Pastor would not allow it in the church. The Pastor is also of the belief that the “wine” Jesus made from water was grape juice because wine is fermented , rotten, and Jesus would never make anything unpure.

Heh. That’s funny. I’ve been on both sides of that river.
