My boyfriend is quite anxious for me to become an Anglican. He
is getting ready to bombard me with Christian literature and videos
and to have
clergymen come and see me and to generally make
my life quite miserable with his evangelism until
I see the light.
am an agnostic and have no serious objections to doing what he
asks, especially since Anglicanism seems a rather cute and undemanding
little faith with far and away the best music of any branch of
Christendom. I am tempted to agree just to get some peace. What
do you think.

Although conversion in the hope of a quiet life would be a mistake
in some more earnest, whirling, wild-eyed religions, it may do
no harm to become just another grazing Anglican.
for everyone who ever thinks of converting to Christianity to
get some peace and quiet, there is an influential precedent in
history. In the year 1000, the Althing, the Icelandic parliament,
voted to accept Christianity because because it knew that this
would remove the main excuse the current King of Norway had for
may choose to think yourself as Iceland and of your boyfriend
as the King of Norway and of your quiet adoption of Anglicanism
as the means of avoiding a space-invading fuss.
