At that point, the person who worked there had to tell you to settle down with the religious talk. That's reasonable.

    Maybe you need to reconsider the way you communicate with people about religion. If you're being asked to stop, it's obviously not working.
    Maybe it is the tzitzit and the kippah and Jesus. It most certainly is not what you say. I wasn't even here yet. I do not have a job either. I can't be different than the person that I am, but I can keep changing.

    Which I understand but it works both ways which is why I bring up the golden rule. Consider how you share the gospel and put yourself if someone who wanted the share with you the glory of Azathoth and the Mad Dream, in the same way, would you reach a point where you would feel he is intruding on your right to privacy?
    The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary. H. L. Mencken

    I probably just think that is ridiculous and I hope that I can rest in the power of God in the gospel. But I do not have much wisdom. I have been a prophet at times in my life and talked about the Law. I hope that people are sensible.
