Gideons Invading My College


Neon Genesis

Recommended Posts

I've just gotten out of my second class and I was randomly approached by a Gideon asking me if I wanted one of their NT bibles. They rudely had shoved it in my face but I just said no thank you and moved on. I knew they were allowed to stand outside school grounds but they were out in the area between all the class buildings and up near the student center. I'm on the computer at the campus library right now and one of their bibles is staring me in the face at the moment. I don't know if a student grabbed one and left it here by accident or if the Gideons came in here themselves and left it there. Either way, it's kinds of irritating having it in front of me. I can't help but wonder if they let Muslims hand out copies of the Koran or atheists hand out copies of The God Delusion on campus grounds but I don't know if colleges are typically more flexible about this sort of thing than high schools are? Is this sort of behavior allowed or is it a violation of the separation of church and state?

I want them to approach me at my College. I would laugh loudly at them and say (very loudly), "You have GOT to be kidding me!"

 

I say, let them be free to approach people and offer them their bibles; as long as I'm free to laugh at and ridicule them. :wicked:

If I were in a foul mood, I would have just snarled and said, "Get your bullshit out of my face," and walked on, but most times I'm not and just tell them, "no thank you." If you think they are doing what they are not supposed to (peddling their bullshit on school grounds) you can go to the head office and make a formal complaint, but I doubt anything would be done of it.

"Why, thank you very much sir, now I won't have to buy toilet paper today."

I would ask them to pray for me saying that I really need the prayers, the logic being that if they are busy praying for me then they aren't busy handing out more bullshit.

 

But that's me.

"No thanks, I've seen the movie".

Generally colleges allow this sort of thing on to go on all sides. I'd bet a muslim or atheist or pagan could hand out material as well, it just might be received much differently. I guess you just have to ignore it the best you can unless it gets truly out of control. They may move on after a little while as well.

When I was in college I took the bibles so I could draw stuff in them.

 

Mmmmm... demon porn on the pages of the bible. :D

 

Just think how popular that handout would be.
