I started a new job about three weeks ago, and was shocked to see a man already working there who seems to have made it his life's work to convert me to Christianity, never mind that I'm already a Christian, baptised in the Southern Baptist Church many years ago.
He believes that anyone who reports seeing a UFO is consorting with Satan. And, this is exactly what he started spreading around the jobsite. I began getting strange questions from people I barely knew, and knew where it was coming from. However, I'm one of those people whose code of honor demands a straight answer to a straight question, and I began trying to control the damage by answering as simply as I could while adhering strictly to what I perceive as the truth. But, I discovered this whole crew is apparently [in] his congregation, or something similar, and, no matter what I said, it just escalated.
Yesterday, he cornered me in an operating unit (literally), and began his rant, swearing that he had a duty to God to convert me and save my soul, demanding loudly that I foreswear Satan and repent, while I tried to calm him down, tell[ing] him I'm already a Christian and really didn't care to become a member of his flock. When I finally worked my way around him, he RAN for the boss's office. I just threw up my hands and gathered up my tools, but nothing was said to me as he dragged a string of witnessess into the office, one by one.
I just waited, and, this morning, they called a meeting of those testifying against me, without inviting me, so I knew that by noon, I'd be gone. True to my prophecy, I was out the gate at exactly noon. However, they did have the courtesy to finally call me in, ask my side of the story (which, without hope, I told as simply as possible) and explain that I was scaring some people, and it would be better if I left.
