It’s that time of year when you start seeing people ring the bells for the Salvation Army.
Well, I have on a Jurassic Park t shirt. Upon walking out of a place, the person working for the Salvation Army lets me know he likes Jurassic Park very much, by telling me I should read the book.
Well, during the course of our conversation, he said something along the lines of, of course you’ve seen the movie, to which I did not verbally responded but motioned in a way that usually indicates “of course”.
This was because I was trying to think of a way to handle this conversation.
You see, I don’t really care much about what clothes I wear, and so I don’t particularly care very much about the franchises displayed on my clothes. Now, here is where the question comes in: Jurassic Park is a classic, and of course I know about it, and I’ve seen clips of it, but I have only ever seen (I believe) the third movie, the more recent Jurassic Park World movie.
So, is this sinful in being deceitful? If so, is it mortally so, or venially? I am out of my usual town (s) and am not familiar with the churches around here, so it may affect my being able to receive the Eucharist. During the conversation I was wondering how to go about it without getting his hopes down while at the same time not lying, but I still motioned in such a manner. I do not know if I also said words like, “well, you know” or such.
