Violating My Rights?

I have a 10,000 square foot church on my former, religiously stained desk. Can I legally refuse to give the client an estimate on irreligious grounds? It’s not like he’s asking me to bake a cake or anything.

The irony of me building a church is pretty funny though.

  1. No doubt the pastor will come and take a look at the progress from time to time. Such a great opportunity to share your de-conversion! Just like the True Christians™ do! Only in reverse. 😈

    1. …and that can be done with stunning effect. This past summer I was on a renovation run to a Howe Sound island (Keats Island) that was partly (mostly!) owned by an evangelical group. My employer, an evangelical Mennonite, invited me (forced a better word here) to accompany him to visit the HQ’s of this Christian venture. They were (are) building a multi-million dollar structure, part hall, church, luxury guest accommodation and etc. The tour over, the promoter turned to me and asked what I thought, as a sort of expert… and I couldn’t help replying, “I’m just as impressed with this as your Jesus of the gospels would be.” That was the “correct” answer – the silence was deafening. Later I explained to my Christian boss that it was mainly because of ostentatious futile display of conned wealth by Christian leadership that I was no longer of Christian or any religious persuasion and I considered religions to be total corruption of any original intent by such as the Jesus portrayed in the gospels, whether the character in question ever existed or not.

  2. Insist that you have to make offerings to the land wights at the corners and consecrate the whole thing with a fire ceremony, or there is no deal.

          1. heh, well, I’m feeling a lot better than I did for about a week. Thanks to trying to be healthy, and exercising, I had what’s called a “primary exertional headache” which comes on like a thunderclap and then leaves you with a headache for a week.

          1. No … YOU must bake them a cake, you bloody heathen! All in pink with rainbow icing and two cute little figurines of a couple of nice ladies holding hands standing on the frosting.

            1. I’m sure with my caking skills it would look like dog shit on a combo pizza. I suppose if I bought some figurines it would look like a couple of nice ladies holding hands on a combo pizza. My wife makes a kitty litter cake that’s pretty good. Looks like the real deal but taste better…I think

    1. It’s funny that I hadn’t really thought of this happening already. I love an irony too. Who knows, one day I may speak to the pastor at another venue..the clergy project.

  3. Jesus, Jim! People are suffering, people are dying and the entire ecosystems are collapsing. We are at the beginning of mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales. How dare you!!

        1. ”The study of theology, as it stands in Christian churches, is the study of nothing; it is founded on nothing; it rests on no principles; it proceeds by no authorities; it has no data; it can demonstrate nothing; and it admits of no conclusion—Thomas Paine.

  4. Haha wow that’s interesting. Can you refuse? I suppose you can, but that would mean you don’t get paid. When providing services for people, I suppose it’s the norm that you will encounter people with beliefs you disagree with from time to time. I wouldn’t be against it if I was being paid 🙂

    1. True. I was more wondering if I could openly refuse on irreligious grounds. Like refusing a gay couples wedding cake or refusing to issue a marriage license because of beliefs. I suppose in this highly Christian area that would be pretty bad for business if word got out.

      1. Maybe. Or maybe you could hide some speakers in the wall remotely connected to a microphone to have “God” speak to the congregation from time to time. That’d probably scare just about everyone in there. “Holy crap! He’s real?”

          1. Wow, I haven’t thought about Real Genius in quite a while. I forgot about that scene. Maybe Jim can also fill the church with popcorn like they did in that movie as well. You know, for refreshments. 🙂
