Courtney, the Walmart customer service lady, (looking down), kept answering “Summerland” when I asked if she’d go to Heaven or Hell when she died.
The only two choices I’m giving you are Heaven or Hell.”
“Summerland. I’m a Wiccan,” she declared.
Since she wouldn’t answer I had to go to Plan B: I preached a one minute Gospel to her so she’d understand there is no Summerland, only Hell, because of her idolatry.
What did she do? Thanked me over and over again to get me to go away. “Thank you very much. Thank you very much. Thank you very much.”
Yet I didn’t go away until she heard fully the full Gospel, thank you very much.
A co-worker walked behind her and gave me a Thumb’s Up.
Another co-worker, a Muslim, in full head covering, began her shift. I resisted giving her the Good News because too many people were lining up at the counter.
I know my limits.
The next day I received this comment on Facebook from an atheist: “I don’t understand why you bible thumpers just cant leave us the f*@k alone, funny how we, who choose alternative ideas, don’t push our thoughts/ideas on to you bible thumpers but you think its ok to bombard us with your thoughts and ideas.”
Here was my response: “I would have to be the most hateful person in the world to NOT share the Gospel with Courtney, or you for that matter. If I didn’t share, I would be overlooking the fact of your horrible future reality. So no. As a Bible Thumper, I love you too much not to speak.”
