From Montana Money Adventures …
Last week I attended a conference where I was slotted to speak alongside familiar faces in the FIRE community. We tackled all the common misconceptions of FIRE and shared our personal stories. I left the conference feeling great about the whole thing.
Until I sat down in my home church the following Sunday. Little did I know that the pastor would be preaching the anti-FIRE sermon. He spent over half the sermon taking pot shots at the FIRE community and perpetuating all the common myths.
I went from slightly amused, to concerned, to hurt.
