I recently relocated for work from Utah to the lands controlled by the Terminator. Not surprisingly I get axed a lot if I was Mormon. I tell them that I am an apostate, and most of my coworkers know about this.
Anywho, our office just got a new worker who is from Salt Lake, and a bunch of us went out together to welcome his ass to the office.
We got to talking and I told him that he'd get "asked THE question" a lot out here. He smiled knowing what I meant and just said, "well, I am just so you know. And I'm used to it."
I responded, "I figured, and I don't mean to start anything, but I'm an apostate, just so you know. And the office knows, so better it come from me now."
Oddly at this, he sincerely asked, "what happened?" without any judgement in his voice.
I didn't feel overcome with the full penetration of the Spirit's sweet hot burning so deep inside my bosom to relate everything, so I just said half-articulately, "A lot of little pieces, dude."
And he just sat there, pondering my simple and humble untestimony for a bit until we started talking about other stuff.
At the end of the night I gave him my number so that he could contact me with any questions as he relocated, and he was grateful for the offer.
He really seemed to be curious to know more, and I might get a chance to preach the un-gospel to him if his heart is open to the temptations of Satan.
