Atheists and serial killers

Lurkie is minding her own business in an orthopod's reception area, waiting for a follow-up appointment. Notices that Cardigan Man sitting beside her is very keen to start a conversation.

Eventually the magazines run out so there is no excuse not to chat to CM. A brief conversation ensues, revolving around CM's situation. He had a car accident some years ago, bad head injury, brain operation, was in a coma for months, had to learn to walk again and talk again etc. etc. This is serious stuff so Lurkie listens intently and makes kind sounds.

The one-sided conversation suddenly takes an annoying turn when CM starts to thank his saviour for all his blessings and the amount that he has learned from the experience. Lurkie has a low tolerance for stuff like this and asks CM why his saviour didn't save him from the accident and spare him all the pain & suffering in the first place.

Lurkie thinks meanly to herself that the head injury explains the guy's choice in jerseys.

CM looks stunned and haps bubbles for a while. Red Jacket Bossy Boots Lady spins around and tells Lurkie that this was the path picked for CM by the saviour and everything is part of a greater plan. Lurkie smiles sweetly and wishes CM good luck with his saviour.

Luckily it is time to see the doc, so CM is spared being told that he's been sitting beside an atheist for about two hours. Lurkie thanks the doc for rescuing her from reception because, in reaction to being evangelised to, she was about to tell CM that she was an atheist.

The doc has a huge grin on his face and says something wonderful: "People react better to finding out that you are a serial killer rather than an atheist".

Damn! I wish I'd thought of that as a reply!

Could be worse, you could be telling them you're an atheist serial killer. In all seriousness, it does feel shitty to belong to (according to American studies anyway) "The most hated minority" without having a good reason for all this hatred. (Of course, nut-cases are nut-cases because they lack "good reason").
