Bing, bong! goes the email demon as the next email slides gracefully into my already overloaded intray…
Apparently a few of our folk have been approached outside some of our sites by non-Company people and [horror!] have been asked about their religious beliefs. That’s resulted in a broadcast email about how to ‘disengage from the conversation’ and seek security advice! And thus the terrorist wins. We are now so freaked out by our own nightmare-filled imaginations that bumping into a Jehova’s Witness can set DefCon scenarios in motion.
Now I’m a Pagan. We sit comfortably within our own spiritualities, communing with our own gods and unless you ask you’ll never hear from most of us (ignoring any self proclaimed witch-dressed in red dressing gowns of course). But it is the nature of some faiths to evangelise, proselytize, convert… and as much as it’s annoying it is their path! And you know what? Most of them won’t be blowing anything up!
As Albion coasts, eyes closed, towards Nanny Totalitarianism, it’s the little things like that email that depress me the most.
