    So It Happened

    Today, I was woken up at 9:00 in the morning by a Jehovah's witness. She seemed pretty nice, but when she noticed my tattoos, things got sour. She told me that Gods light would be the only thing to save me. Well, I wanted to have fun with this so I asked her with a dead serious face, "But have you heard the good word of Odin, our lord and AllFather?" She was taken a back, and told me Jesus was the only lord for he died for our sins. I told her "Jesus promised to bring an end to all the wicked. Odin promised to end all Frost Giants. I don't see any Frost Giants around, do you?" At this, she turned, and marched off my front porch. Was quite amusing.

    Re: So It Happened

    I usually avoid the whole situation by not opening my door. But if I'm outside, as happened last week, and one comes up my walkway, before they can open their mouths I say "Thank you but I'm not interested". Once or twice I got a "Can I leave this with you?". They get a firm "No, I said I'm not interested".

    She knocked for a good 3 minutes, which was quite harassing.

    That sounds like a hilarious exchange. I usually don't answer the door. It really flies all over me when they show up on Thanksgiving. They've done that three years in a row here. One time they accosted me as I was going to my car. I lied and said, "oh, I'm already a Christian". The woman was so persistent. She was like, "yes, Dear, but you aren't Jehovah's Witness". I politely smiled and said, "no, thank god. I like holidays too much. Have a blessed day!" lol

    That would have pissed me off beyond belief. I fear I might have taken the hammer off the altar and smote her right into Niflheim.

    Hahaha, awesome response, Norse Angel!
    It can be quite irritating, considering our dog that barks every time someone knocks the door. So we don't have a choice of not opening the door.
    We just say we're not interested. I should try that method, one time and see what happens.

    You know I have never really minded them knocking on the door. Sometimes I answer sometimes I don't but I started to take offense when they started taking my stuff off my door so they could hang their flyers and pamphlets on it. I have a large wooden four leaf clover that says "Bright Blessings" on it that stays on my door pretty much year around with the exception of a few months. I came home to it thrown in the grass with a stack of Jehovah Witness pamphlets in its place. You can preach and do what you do but don't ever touch my stuff on my property.

    Give me a Mormon any day.

    Well, she was quite Persitent and at first, I thought it was someone trying to break in, so I did bring with me my .22 which was concealed under my shirt. Sadly, I can't shoot the annoying Jehovah's witnesses who don't get the hint.

    Here in France it's illegal for JW's to go up to your door. So instead, on market days, they have a stand with a few others going around on the market harassing people.

    I'm seriously working on getting my own Satan Witness stand, with pamphlets and all. I will hopefully be able to place it next to theirs.
