Interactions With Religion

February 27, 2010

When I was an undergraduate, I remember walking through the diag and seeing a scene much like the one in the below video.

I have two conflicting thoughts about stuff like this. The first thought is in solidarity with 99% of the people out there. Standing up and yelling at people seems ridiculous and doesn’t offer the picture of Christianity that truly represents who we are and what we represent. It seems intentionally antagonistic. So my first thought, is I wish people would try a better approach.

But my second thought is that at least there is dialogue going on. Most people go through life in their with their own views toward religion and spirituality and never interact with people that disagree. This type of street preaching is at least it is a point of contact (however flawed) with a dissenting view.
