Frontline of Conversions in Clarendon

Last Friday at the Clarendon Metro Station exit, I was accosted by Frontline. No, no the PBS show, nor the flea and tick products, but the McLean Bible Church.

Now ordinarily I would get up all in their grill for proselytizing on WMATA property, no matter the religion, as Metrorail passengers need to have clear egress to and from metro stations, free of fliers from anyone shoved in their faces. But I just felt sorry for these two trying to sell Frontline’s “life-changing love of Jesus Christ”.

First, like today, it was scorching hot – I got sweaty just taking these photos. Then they had slim conversion pickings as the Orange Line chaos had Clarendon empty of passengers. Last but not least, these two were missing out on a Liberty Tavern happy hour.

Maybe Jesus was trying to tell them something.

    So what’s with the water? Were they giving it away?

    Elizabeth, they were giving the water out. No word on if it was holly water. Don, click on their website, you’ll get the postcard view.

    Looks like Deer Park.

    We all know that the only true holy water is Dasani.

    Or something.

    I’m continuously disappointed that people still think Deer Park, Dasani or Aquawhatever are better than tap water when they should know otherwise.

    Dasani and Aquafina is tap water, Deer park is water before it goes to the water authority pipes or as the marketing people call it bottled from original source.

    One more thing, I drink bottled water for convenience, I don’t want to drink any water from a public water fountain. I typically carry a Nalgene bottle with me but if I am traveling or in some other situation where I am thirsty and don’t have my Nalgene bottle, the case can be made that purchasing a bottle of water is not a bad idea.

    BTW, evangelicals don’t use holy water, that’s a Roman Catholic and Orthodox tradition, one Protestants have no part in.
