Yes, there was a total problem, and I went out of my way to both appreciate THEM, and to explain my position.
I did this in the most loving, appreciative, and respectful way I could imagine.
I treated them in manner in which I would like to be treated...
I even mocked the somewhat incomprehensible elements of my catholic faith...the more esoteric elements of its theology...saying, I could understand 'belief systems' that might not be comprehensible to others.
My position was, "can we not respect each other as Christians who agree on more things than we disagree on?"
NOPE, no deal.
I invited him to my church...no interest in this exchange.
BTW, I think I am a MORMON. My colleague started introducing me to others as such after one session at his church. I think he got Jesus points for this, and is closer to moving to the Planet Kolob.
What did I learn from this? Just to be SADDER about the human condition.
