Actually, it reminds me of an anecdote who occured to me exactly a year ago. When I was teaching Spanish in Tenessee, I befriended a very nice moderate Baptist girl who introduced me her cousin, the typical holier-than-thou idiot. He fancied me and I a little(don´t ask me why but I was not going serious). Anyway, he declared that the problem is that he didn´t date people outside his faith(I´m a Catholic)and I did know that his pastors didn´t yoke blokes to unbelievers. He suggested me to join one of his Bible classes and, eventually, convert, which I declined. To make the story short, I married later on my current husband, whose mother is an Irish Catholic and his father is a Greek-Cypriot and Eastern Orthodox(my husband himself is Catholic)and we encountered him again because we went to my friend´s wedding. When he saw me with my hubby, took me apart and asked me why I was so mean and hypocritical to marry an Orthodox and convert when he offered me to be saved. I clarified what happened and reminded him that it was he who imposed me to convert because he didn´t want to yoke to an unbeliever. Guess what?, he repeated a similar speech to this guy, saying, in all freshness, that I was the proof that he, as a Christian, was persecuted because I renounced to his "gift" of salvation(his Bible classes I guess). Of course, later on I learnt through his cousin that he was divorced from his "saved" Christian wife and that was very embittered since then but I guess that he is just another religious fundie.
