Idaho Escapee: I’m not saying these two religions are wrong. This country advocates freedom of religion, and I don’t care what someone believes. But, when either Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses come to my door, trying to recruit me into their religion, I just tell them, “thanks, but I don’t want to talk about religion”. And I don’t think I want to indulge in door-to-door religion. I’ve always wondered, do the Mormons and Jehovah’s, when they go from door-to-door, actually care about who they are talking to, or are they trying to get to a higher level of heaven, or just doing what their religion dictates they do?
DFO: I didn’t post this to pick on the Mormons or Jehovah’s Witnesses. But they’re the two main religions in this country who proselytize door to door. I get irritated when a proselytizer knocks on my door on a weekend when I’m trying to decompress from a busy week here, wishin/hopin/prayin to convert me. Sometimes, I almost have to chase them away with a broom to persuade them that they have no chance in the world of converting me. Am I the only one who pets this particular peeve. Is there a place you can call with religious groups to opt out of the door-to-door drive-bys — like Idaho’s Do Not Call service. Just askin’.
