Quote stolen from FB, but reminded me of Nightingale's Mormon experience, and I think more than a few RMs can also identify in a different way.
How many of you thought you were signing up for love and you got something else instead?
How many of you heard, "Come join us at the table!" only to discover that you were the meal?
Happened to me.
Happened to you?
I question evangelism. Yes. In most if not all of its forms.
We really must renegotiate the idea.
Because now to assume your beliefs are superior to another's and that you can rescue people from their own culture is wrong and damaging.
Colonialism falls under this.
