Proof I am a jerk - religious jerkitude

Minister:  Hi, we're going door to door giving out light bulbs, to remind people of the light of God!

Me:  I can not accept that light bulb.

Minster:  Why not?  It's free?

Me:  It's incandescent.  We believe in using compact flourescent light bulbs, because they use less energy.  That way, we don't contribute to the destruction of the Earth by burning more fossil fuels.  After all, if we truly loved God, wouldn't we try to reduce the harm we cause his creation, instead of encouraging people to burn more energy?

Minster:  Uh - it's just a light bulb.

Me:  Thanks, but by their fruits you shall know them.  Sorry - and have a nice day.
