As you guys know we recently had a flood and during said flood I had surgery. The day I was released I received a phone call while waiting in a doctors office.

It was this missionary guy from my mother's church, feigning interest in my situation and trouble.

He made some comment about me being a child of God and I guess it might of been the pain but I could not be polite.

I told him  that by calling me a child he was attempting to infantalize me and make me more receptive to manipulation. I am 51 years old for Christ's sake. I think I at least deserve to be treated as an adult.

He lost any interest in my situation and accused me of saying that he was stupid, all because I requested he not refer to me as a child.

I tried to be polite and tell him that I was not calling him stupid but the harder I tried to be reasonable the more childish he became.

His "Christian compassion" seemed to evaporate as if by magic. Never mind that the clots from the Leiden's syndrome was still increasingly painful  and that my mother had just lost her house and that neither of us had had any food since I left the hospital because the local groceries were still recovering from the storm. It was more important to turn my refusal to be manipulated into an insult to either destroy my resistance or dehumanize me into an irredeemable damned soul bent on insulting well meaning Christians.

I've seen better use of logic and reason from an angry four year old. After about thirty minutes of me restating what I said and him screaming I hung up. After about a minute of silence I laughed....Fucking Christians.
