Muslims and Jews, that's who.

2. I really get sick and tired of those fucking clowns
from AT&T trying to convert me to U-verse. WTF kind of religion is U-verse, anyway? Yesterday, they showed up twice. The same two guys. :mad:

It's more fun to point and laugh.

4. I live way out in the country and have seen an odd uptick in door-knocking evangelism over the past
three months. Like, I got one in four years, and suddenly three in the past three months.

5. I just hit them with the facts
Works especially well with mormons. Did you know The Smithsonian actually issued a statement/request that the mormons stop sending them The Book Of Mormon as another history of the earth. TBOM is so full of inaccuracies, but the poor brain-washed mormons have major cognitive dissociation concerning it. In my old neighborhood, they avoided my house like I was satan, I think I may have actually helped one kid finally break away from that cult.

6. I have the feeling that you really are satan....
they have your house marked down that way. Not a "like I was satan", but "satan lives there". That is especially true if you did succeed in deprogramming one of their kids.

14. If I were satan I would be having a lot more fun
And if you know anything about the mormon temple ceremony, they don the apron, the symbol of Lucifer's power and priesthoods. That poor kid, I spoke right over his companion's head, acknowledging that he would be shunned, that his girlfriend would leave him, but at least he would not be living a lie for the rest of his life. I also told another about Joe Smith and his philandering. Joe sent another man off on a mission so he could sleep with his wife. This kid had no idea.

29. Hmmm, sounds like Joe Smith was very biblical.
Didn't David do the same to Uriah so he could have Bathsheba? Well, I guess if Smith didn't have the man killed, it isn't quite as biblical.

I know nothing about the mormons. Except that they used to show up at my house all the time.

7. No Episcopalians, ELCA Lutherans, Methodists, Presbyterians, Catholics,
Quakers, or Eastern Orthodox come knocking on your door trying to convert you either.

13. Catholics are bred - they really don't want converts
They also don't want you reading the Bible... they don't want you doing any religious interpreting (that's why it took so long to finally permit the bible translated from Latin and why it took so ridiculously long to stop doing Mass in Latin). They don't want you doing ANY thinking about anything for yourself (that's what priests are for) in particular about your own religion. Exactly what I hated the most about the Catholic religion throughout history right up to the present.

Incidentally, I was raised as a Catholic and know all about how they want you to question nothing and basically refrain from any thinking about anything.

19. True, true. Before my grandmother emigrated here from Ireland
she absolutely made no major decisions without consulting Father first. She came to America and worked in the Rectory for the Priests, getting advice all of the time. My mother and her sibs tried to talk her out of this but that was how she was raised...sigh.

17. I actually agree with that concept.
Unless a person is due beer and travel money, and it is unjustly stacked behind said door, then kick the door in.

18. You know who doesn't come knocking on my door, trying to convert me? Nazis.
That's right, Muslims and Jews are just like the Nazis.
Ha! I pulled a reverse Godwin in the Lounge. That's like double points!

just for a changeup.
