If a religious person came to me when I was on my death bead and tried to persuade me to do something like "repent and believe in Jesus so that I might be saved" I'd be terribly offended and hurt by such an act.

What are the odds that any average Joe or Jane, on their death bed, would not be offended by an extropian preaching the possibility of cryonic salvation?

Pushing cryonics is of course the action I'd like to take when faced with the death of a friend or family member. But how will they take it? Just how much of this can we do for how many people? When death isn't close most people aren't to receptive to the idea of cryonics. Does this ever change when people are actually on it's doorstep?
