Today, I concluded my survey along the river during the Snake River Roaring Youth Jam. It came to an abrupt halt. I was asking yesterday’s question to a couple of ladies who became highly offended.
“Does the Idaho Falls Arts Council know you are doing this?”
“No, I honestly didn’t realize I needed permission about what to talk about along the river?”
I moved on.
Shortly after, the golf cart descended to where I was and asked me to stop asking any religious questions. They (the Idaho Falls Arts Council) have the whole river reserved. I suppose they think that God and exalted eternal life shouldn’t be mixed with art, music, and dance.
I don’t know how much money people are paying for their booth space. I can sincerely respect that. I just need to learn where is the space available downtown in Idaho Falls to talk about God.
Here are the responses to the question I asked:
- 1 – One didn’t believe in an afterlife.
- 3 – Three said, “I don’t know”.
- 6 – Six passed on the question.
- 7 – Seven said, “Yes”.
- 13 – Thirteen said, “No”.
