I’m minding my business walking along the waterfront when a young woman hands me a pamphlet that says, “Beware of religious fanatics handing out pamphlets.”

Of course, she is the very fanatic described in her pamphlet, which went on to inform me that, “God wants us to look to him as Numero Uno, #1 …” All of this was written next to a heart with an arrow through it — the kind we all drew in junior high when we had crushes on guys — that says, “Me & God.”

What is with people? Can’t they love God or whoever and just know it’s right for them? Not to sound too utopian, but wouldn’t the world be a better place if everyone worshipped in a personal way?

I’d vote for that.
