See even opposites can come<quoted text>I found in my younger days folks can be bargained with, but sometimes you have to feed them some of their own medicine.
We had a church that was fond of protesting a local clinic, disgusting and disturbing signs, and saying some of the most horrific things to people.
So a group of us worked to come up with some equally disturbing signs and things to say and protested in front of their church one Sunday morning as their flock was coming to worship.
They called the police, the police arrived, talked to us, looked over our protest and informed the minister or pastor or whatever he was that we were doing nothing illegal, only distasteful.
The following Sunday when we were there again the pastor invited us in for coffee, we had a nice chat, we compared our signs to their signs and low and behold, from that day forward the disgusting signs disappeared, and a much more muted, respectful and tremendously kinder protest ensued in the future around those clinics.
together with "coffee" lol
