Jim, the situation was really this. An evangelist had prepared herself in order to circulate all day in a huge park with the rehearsed intention of preying upon the innocent and vulnerable.
I was unprepared.
So suddenly there she was, invading the quiet space of my wife and myself and the couples to each side of us.
My reaction was extempore, unscripted, unrehearsed.
I invented a line of argument that I had never tried before, and she could have stood her ground
and argued it out. But no, she ran. Otherwise, I would have followed it up by exposing some of the blatant superstitions, fallacies, fibs and fiction that fill her fat and largely fraudulent book. Voilà tout.
