Yesterday morning, I was watching TV (a program in ID--Investigation Discovery) when I heard a faint knocking at the door. I wasn't expecting anyone, but got up to see who was here...and it came as no surprise that it was a couple of Jehovah's Witnesses. An older man and woman...Bibles, a fancy leather folder and a carry-all bag in their arms.
Fortunately, the way our house is set up, I saw them through I window before I reached the door and decided right then I was not going to open the door. I have dealt with many of them over the years and I don't like the way they try to force you to listen to their spiel. Try to get a straight-forward answer from them about some more difficult aspects of the Bible...and they talk in circles avoiding the question...because they don't know the answer!
Don't get me wrong here...I don't have a problem with anyone being religious regardless of what religion that might be. What I do have a problem with though, is having people come to my door and trying to convince me that I need to learn about "their" religion, and I certainly don't like having people trying to shove religion down my throat.
Seriously, what is up with that?
Anyway, they stood there on the porch for a good 5-8 minutes, repeatedly knocking on the door and carrying on a conversation between themselves. In the meantime, there was at least one other person sitting in the vehicle, patiently waiting...perhaps for his turn at the next house they stopped at.
Finally though, after missing about 10 minutes of my program...they left. Talk about persistent! The way they stood there and knocked and knocked...you could swear there was an emergency they needed help for.
Well...maybe it was an emergency: to find another lost soul to bring into their flock.
Thanks for stopping by!
