Conversation starters
I was stopped in the street at the weekend by quite an attractive girl who asked about the unicycle I had with me. We chatted for a few minutes and I was thinking she was really keen to get a conversation going, not just interested in unicycling. She seemed nice and I was enjoying the chat. Then she changed the subject and asked, "So, hey, do you know anything about Mormonism? I'm here with the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints," pointing to her black name badge.

I did not see that coming at all.

I hate it when you think you've finally met someone who's interested in you for your body, but it turns out all they really want is the eternal destiny of your soul.

What's the most cunning way that a missionary or evangelist has tried to start a conversation with you?

Never really had the issue. I guess the horns and pitchfork keep them at bay.

I had this girl of about 20 knock on my door selling magazines. And she's giving me this spiel about different magazines and the great deals and then I took a look at the magazine sample she had and it was all about Jesus. I know this wasn't a conversation starter like other examples in this thread because it was a sales pitch but it's the same bait and switch approach theists use all the time.

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

RE: Conversation starters
She still might be interested. Maybe religion is holding her back.

RE: Conversation starters
Two women knocked my door to talk to me about Jesus. One asked if she could come back later with her husband to talk some more.

I said "no, but you're welcome to come back without your husband." Wink

She didn't come back. Laugh out load

My fave story was (I think if I remember correctly) was Bart Ehrman's. Two missionaries came to his door and asked "Do you have a minute to talk about Jesus?" His response: "What would you like to know?" Love him!
