Could this be a case of ‘blind faith’ ?

I have a notice on my street door which reads …
“IF YOU ARE SELLING … WE DON’T WANT ANY … AND THAT INCLUDES RELIGION … SO PLEASE DO NOT RING THE BELL ! … THANK YOU.”
So this morning … Ding Dong ! Ding Dong ! … I looked out of the window and saw a post office van across the street. I rushed to the door (those buggers don’t hang about) only to find a grey haired man dressed in black and two elderly ladies similarly attired.
“We would like you to have this” said the man holding out a small leaflet.
“What is it ?” I asked
“It’s an invitation to a little gathering” he replied.
“A religious meeting ?” I questioned pointing to the sign.
“It doesn’t say anything about religion on that sign” said the evangelical nutter. “No, it doesn’t” echoed one of his lady acolytes.
Can there be such a thing as bible bashers’ blindness ?
In Isaiah 42:16 it says … “I will lead the blind by ways they have not known, along unfamiliar paths I will guide them” … After meeting this fairly tolerant athiest on a bad day, they might not be too keen to …
…tread my “unfamiliar path” again.
