I see this guy from time to time, not everyday but often. Today again, there he was, all day long with his cross waving at people. All day long. Does he have a right to spend his time however he wants? Of course. Does he have a right to express himself? Undoubtedly. Does he have a right to do it here on public property? I am less certain about that. But none of these things are what went through my head today.
Maybe greeting people is a good thing. I considered that and then I considered the impact of greeting people this way. Is he really just greeting people? My question is this. What is it about this guy’s belief system and the many others who do similar things, that make him think that this is a better way to spend a lot of time than actually doing something; something that might honor his implied faith and provide real benefit to someone? I’d really like to know.
