Do you think religious groups like Mormons and Jehovahs Witnesses or other religious groups should be allowd to come knocking on your door to spread their message. What do say when they do show up at your door?
I invite them in to tell them the good news.

And you can spread your message to them too, Mark, so it will even.
Absolutely. But - my message is the Truth instead of the per4verted word of God.
Your false prophet is perverting the Word of God. As are you by following the False Religion. We have a much better religion than yours because we do not allow sex with children.
The Goat tells us to wind up the infidels, especially those who insult the Holy Goat by saying it is smelly and refusing the proof given as scientific evidence - Feta.
Denying these proofs and evidences is an abomination of the Word and You Shall Pay with your Eternal Soul.!!
Just taste Genuine Feta and you will see. And if you do not - this proves that you are close minded and willfully denying the Truth.
Hei, I thought you goat feta just a joke! Sorry, Mark! I didn't know you really believe on that! I really do feel sorry.
About your comment on my Prophet and God, sorry Marx, you are not the first one who telling me that.
All I can say is:
"Your believe is yours, and my believe is mine."
So let them be? Peace?
I prefer knock on door by God directly instead if he exist. I don't like crappy preachers to be honest.
My brother answered the door dressed in surgical scrubs, holding the family cat in one arm and a kitchen knife in the other, and covered in ketchup stains...when he opened the door to the Jehovas Witnesses, he cried " Cant you see Im BUSY??!!!!" Yeah, that technique works pretty good.
It is okay if they only give me a booklet or something like that, but I don't think I would like it if they start preaching. Just give me something to read. If I don't like it, I can make it disappear. But it's kind of hard to make people disappear.
How about if they lie and say they know how the world came into being instead of admitting that they do not know?
Is that OK?
We talking about people who knocked door and spread their messages in belief that different with the owner of the house, Mark.
"Give me a booklet, thank you for your kind, but please, I need to rest."
I will welcoming my Brothers and Sisters in belief nicely.
Whether or not they should be allowed to go door to door is probably not going to stop them from doing so and attempting to sell their snakeoil.
The last time the JW's knocked on my door, they were trying to convince me about the six reasons why Christianity was wrong. I couldn't disagree with their reasoning until they began to sell their religion, whereupon I began to ask what made their religion superior or different.
The silence was deafening.
The 10 year old boy that was with the JW told me in no uncertain terms that he didn't believe in evolution and didn't believe what he was being taught in school regarding science.
I don't answer the door any more unless I am feeling grumpy and feel like making a meal of them!
True story. I was living in Darwin, plenty of money.. the good life. It was about a billion degrees in the shade (standard temp in Darwin in the wet season, and up rocks two young Mormons in their 14 piece near black suits, the sweat almost running out of their leather shoes. I open the door in standard Darwin Attire, a pair of brief shorts, no shirt.
I invited them in for a cold drink and offered them to crew on my catamaran as I was just about to hit the yaught club.
They of course said no, they were not permitted to do that. We started to talk about what they ARE allowed to do, and it amounted to breathing, praying and annoying the crap out of people like me. I told them my idea of hell would be to get sent to a tropical paradise, then put in a suit and not be allowed to enjoy anything. Sad. 2 nice kids with all that crap up their nose at about 20 year old.
Come to think of it no, he would not be a shitzu, ours seems to hate all religious people including the ones in his own family!
Dogs have a sixth sense you know, they can pick a bible basher a mile off!
I'm with the dog. Never met a bible basher who was moral on the inside. All smarmy and gooey on the outside, writhing with fear and hate on the inside.
why else would they be running around door to door trying to convince every other person of something their sub-conscious knows is crap?
We are trying to stop Yothi (the shitzu) from eating the new pizza guy, but I asked him about religion and the dog has it right again! The loser is a religious fanatic, and even pizza does not stop Yothi from ripping into him. (Yothi loves pizza)
They should be 'allowed' to knock on doors, sure. That doesn't mean that we have to answer the door though!
The Jehovah's Witnesses aren't too bad, they give you a couple magazines and move on. The Mormons really get to me though.
If you ever invite them in they begin their infiltration and you can never get rid of them. As a woman, who spent a good deal of her childhood in Southern Idaho, I have very little interest in ever becoming a Mormon.
I usually tell them that it would not be a good idea to invite them in as my master, the great and mighty Abamawama-Woowoo, is a very jealous god and if they then insist on praying with me I begin the sacred prayers of Abamawama-WooWoo. They usually leave fairly quickly.
And earnest, the Mormon's are really only allowed to do two things in this life!
Neither of them seem to include anything remotely enjoyable.
Nope, at least the Witnesses can drink though!
I had a grade school friend who was a Witness, she had the nicest family I've ever met, but for the most part I haven't met many Witnesses who seemed to be particularly happy people.
My brother in-law is one. He single-handedly removed my sister and their children from the family.
I have tons of family in Southern Idaho... the Mormons are great for doing that too. They seem to figure that if your family won't convert too then you shouldn't have anything else to do with them. I have tons of grievances toward the Mormons.... don't even get me started there!
Knock Knock "It's god who's calling
You know the sky is falling!"
No, I dont think they should be allowed to peddle their religion door to door. Heck, advertise in the paper if ya want, hold dances and fundraisers, but stay off my doorstep.
I find it very annoying and normally don't even open the door, even if they can actually see me sitting in the livingroom :-) but i wouldnt say they shouldnt be allowed. I mean how can you even forbid it?
I reckon just have a couple of costumes ready to put on for the occasion. For example, if it was a jehovah's witness, just wear a burka or whatever. You don't have to say anything, they'll get the message. And if they don't get it, you can always pretend to not speak English. Make it obvious.
Better yet, try and sell them a magazine of your own! Be persistent. Take it even one step further and ask them to take out a one page ad in your magazine to encourage others to convert. Put it right next to a completely inappropriate or funny ad. Am I going too far? You just don't have to get worked up about them being there, turn it around to your advantage!!
That would certainly cut down on the incidence of door knocking. But - this could backfire. After numerous conversations with Christians - I have now come to the conclusion that this is what they want above all else.
To become a martyr for their beliefs.
Shooting them will fulfill that desire and only strengthen their cause because it proves that they are being persecuted for their "faith" or "the god given right to annoy people to the point where they shoot them."
Lose lose. I prefer mocking them as the biybel tells me to do. There is a lot about mockers and scoffers ( I think scoffers are like trainee mockers or something.)
You guys are funny. When I was quite young, my parents were active in the Jehovah's Witnesses. Since I was the youngest of my siblings, my mother used to drag me door to door with her and her friends. We lived in south Florida.
I always feel sorry for them now. But I've developed a back bone. I tell them straight up that I don't believe in religion of any kind, and I refuse to accept their books, telling them that they'd only go straight in the trash.
I made a huge 'gaf' recently, when I went around to a neighbours house and knocked on her door. Her Husband and my Husband were with me, but her Husband had forgotten his key. We knew she was home, but when she didn't answer the door immediately I jokingly called out at the top of my voice "Jehovah Witnesses!". It took me about 100th of a second to suddenly recall that she actually IS a Jehovah Witness, (although her Husband isn't). I could have died of embarrassment when she finally did open the door a few seconds later!!
I usually tell them I worship lucifer and tell them they are just in time for lunch. I asked the Bhante I am a student of if this was wrong and he just laughed so I think I am ok.

What do you do when Christian evangelists (Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Baptists) show up at...your door?
by easyguyevo 11 years ago
Many people seem to hate them, but they are just doing as Jesus did in the bible. He preached and teached the word of God traveling as he did so to the homes of many individuals. But still most other religions stay in a church and preach, while the Jehovah witnesses try to imitate his behavior.Do...

If Jehovah Witnesses are Christians, why are they not allowed to go to church?JW's encourage everyone to come to Kingdom Hall. Why do they not accept invitations to visit church.
