So I am shopping on the phone to find a local certified mechanic to install a new engine in my wife's truck.  It was recommended to call a specific mechanic shop about fifty miles away. After talking to the shop owner's wife for about ten minutes because he was tied up with customers she finally said something to the effect that "we don't like to take new customers as we stay busy with our existing clientele."  I commented I thought this was an odd business philosophy. She then proceeded to suggest another mechanic down the road and explained he could do the job I needed. And she also stated "Oh, you'll like him, he's a christian and goes to our church." 

This last statement made me want to challenge her implication that all christian auto mechanics were reputable and to be trusted. It is annoying that theists throw this crap out about either their business or someone they know having an upstanding christian philosophy. I have dealt with other so called christian businesses in the past that had no problem trying to weasel out of their responsibility to the customer.

I should of asked her if she thought the christian mechanic would do his best while working on my godless truck.
