Now Marion, that would be a new take. Can you imagine a mission
attatched linguist putting up a sign on that big new church in a
which just divided over the issue, posting all the things that

"Hi, I am from the mission, I am here to make you like me and
culture which has you bound in darkness and bondage."
(no this wasn't a conversation in a back alley in USA)
But hey, if they had the guts to do that, I would have to offer
kind of credit.
