At what point does being enthusiastic about something cross the line into evangelism?
Is it obvious which is which?
And, if someone is evangelizing a social construct that is considered “normal”, is that any different than selling people an idea that is not popular?
In other words, is trying to bring people into the public school network any different than trying to draw people out?
Is being enthusiastic about life in public school any different than being enthusiastic about a homeschooling life?
I’ve been thinking about these questions, and I haven’t got a clear answer in my head yet. But I have been thinking about them.
One thing is clear to me, however, is the universal truth that new or unpopular practices and topics receive different treatment and allowances than publicly acceptable ones. It’s always been that way, and it always will.
But is that a bad thing? Or just something that needs to be understood?
