Actually, when we were in Buffalo, (NY) we sort of had a code name for
some of the people we worked with.  We called it Ministering to the
Mutants.  It sounds pejorative, but it really wasn't.  

	It was taken from the old TV show, "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century". 
After the nuclear holocaust, the people who weren't killed were affected
adversely, as you might imagine, including genetically.  Those who didn't
live in the new, safe, climate controlled cities mutated, and their
descendents became "the mutants", who populated the old cities, and
preyed on anyone who came by.  Of course, very few people came by, so
they mostly preyed on each other.  The military came with phasers blazing
and brought Buck back (good alliteration, huh?) to the safe city, but a
fellow minister of mine said, "I thought when I saw that, 'But who's
gonna minister to the mutants?'"

	Not that there's anything strange about teenagers or anything.
