Christians harass old man

UPDATE: Hey, so I can’t do anything on this blog at the moment. Login, comment, post, etc. I’m editing this in the database to see if that works. If you see this, try and comment.

I have three comments on this article:

“I was standing on a corner and turned around and there was this little old man walking across the street,” said Tony Didlo, a member of Grace Church, a Southern Baptist congregation in Des Moines, Iowa. “I knew right away it was Andy Rooney.”

Didlo held out a Gospel tract and asked Rooney if he had received one yet.

“Yeah, I’ve got one of those,” Rooney replied, according to Didlo’s account of the Jan. 31 encounter.

“Sir, do you believe in God?” Didlo asked.

“No, I’m an atheist,” Rooney said. “I think it’s sad you people believe in that stuff.”

“He wouldn’t let me go any further with it,” Didlo said. “I was surprised he thinks people are totally off their rockers for believing in God.”

1. I think most people should be able to admit that worshiping a cosmic Jewish zombie and an imaginary friend living in the sky is going to sound a bit crazy to a certain number of people.
2. Shouldn’t Christians expect this? There are countless examples in the Bible of people being mocked for their beliefs, to say nothing of being dismissed.
3. My brain refused to recognize that that man’s name is Didlo, not dildo.

    At a certain point you gotta grab a bag of popcorn, sit down, and enjoy the circus. I’m gettin’ there.

    Very funny but I know it’s not suppose to be funny. I totally saw Dildo at first and thought this was part of a joke.
