Evangelizing Atheists, Or It's A Bit Intrusive When You're On the OTHER Side of the Door, Isn't It?

My delightfully wicked husband sent this to me this evening.

"Australian filmmaker John Safran is so fed up with Mormons ringing his doorbell early in the morning that he flies to Salt Lake City Utah and tries to convert Mormons to atheism. Needless to say, the locals were not pleased." (This came with my copy of the video, but didn't show up when I embedded it.)

Keep an eye on the elderly man with the rake.

I laughed like a maniac. My husband just looked exasperated. Hee hee hee.

I have watched it about five times, and it's still funny! The guy with the rake kills me!

I saw your link via a tweet. http://twitter.com/homeschoolnews/status/3638236166

It made my night! What a relief to finally encounter an atheist/humanist homeschooler! Wish you were closer!

Bleu said...

Hi, Heather! Thanks for taking the time to comment. If you check my sidebar of blogs, you'll find several atheist/humanist/secular ones, and they're homeschoolers, too! I am so glad that we're all finding one another.

I think this is hilarious! I also followed the link from Twitter. I am glad to find another secular/humanist homeschooler. We do seem to be few and far between!

Bleu said...

Hi Kelli, and thank you for stopping by my blog! We do seem to be few and far between, but lately it seems like more and more of us are coming out of the shadows.

Price.less.

I've only had Mormons visit me once in this state, but the Jehovah's witnesses and Baptists makes it out quite a bit.

Oh, this made me laugh so hard! I think there are more of us non-religious homeschoolers out here than people think, BTW. We tend to be a bit in the closet but there are clues we leave! ;)

Well, I posted it to my blog and I just had a LDS friend give me a royal tongue lashing about it. She couldn't see the humor in it and took it as a jab at her religion.

Bleu said...

Oh, Meg, that's awful. I guess she couldn't see the irony, either.

Bleu said...

Alicia, we are definitely out there. :) I'm enjoying your blog.

Meg_L said...

Nope, not a bit. She's been a good friend for 9 years and her response was that she wouldn't cross the road to avoid me, but I shouldn't try to ever speak to her again.

That was a riot!

Bleu said...

Meg, that's awful...that must have hurt you to hear that, and over something so silly. We should all be able to poke fun at ourselves. (You should have heard my self-deprecation during belly dance class yesterday.)

Arby, thank you for laughing with us!
