Several times a year I get a letter sent through the US Postal Service from some religious organization or another spamming me with their ideological tripe. Most have some postage paid return envelope in hopes that whatever sucker… sorry… prospective convert they have spammed can sign up to get a free cross, give money, that sort of thing. For a while I have been tearing up all the other items in the envelope and mailing it back to them. My way of saying, “Take this and use it to reenact what you think the story of Lot was all about.” They paid to send it to me, they can pay to get it back so they can waste space it their landfill, not mine.
However a few nights ago it dawned on me that I have not been as strong as I could have been in declining whatever it was they were trying to sell. I live in Sin City. On every street corner within a mile radius of the Strip are 2-3 newspaper dispensers full of escort ads. Why send their own stuff back to them when I can offer suggestions on alternative means of relieving the tension they are feeling? If they find it offensive, well, just consider it my taking the old testament eye-for-an-eye lessons to heart.
