RE: JW's paid a visit yesterday
I went out on the ministry as it's called once when I was about 9...

I hated it, people slamming doors in my face, telling me to fuck off.

So don't be nasty or aggressive.

I was polite the first four or five times they came out to the house. Plus I consider what they are doing to be immoral. They are spreading lies. Their religion is anti-mind and that makes it anti-life. They should be treated accordingly.

I am actually nice to them, I say, "no thank you, I don't subscribe to mythology, have a nice day" Or, "No thank you, I am an atheist". Those are always the two lines I use. These aren't evil people, they genuinely think they are doing "god's work". I pity them, but as long as they smile and walk away at that point, I don't have to dismantle their belief publicly...or be overly sarcastic, it just puts atheism in a bad light Unsure

It's worth bearing in mind though that they don't necessarily do it willfully.

I know several who actually admitted to hating themselves for it.

After being baptised they are expected to do it, or be branded "blood guilty"... And possibly even be shunned by friends and family.

Not to mention the threat that God will "destroy" you if you don't do it.

It's a vile organisation. But having been there myself, and hated every minute of it, I can't help but sympathise with those caught up in it.

RE: JW's paid a visit yesterday
They showed up back when my first husband and me were just moving into a house. Big rolled up rugs sitting around, furniture piled in a corner, boxes...

Hubby #1 invited them in and let them start talking. Then he said: "just a sec, could you hold the other end of this rug please? And before you knew it, he had the both of them helping to move our stuff in.

Got the place fixed up right nice. Then he offered them Whiskey from a bottle which they refused and he started drinking heartily. I gave him a funny side look and said to them that it was time to go, he was starting to drink. They left. He put the bottle down and we watched TV and chilled.

When they returned a few weeks later I opened the door in my morning coat with hubby's Boa wrapped around my waist to hold it shut because I had lost the belt. They stared at the snake sticking it's tongue out towards them and left. Didn't come back.

I don't think it's unkind to let them know that you resent their subjecting their kids to this, or that they are not welcome. With any luck it may add a tiny bit of doubt or questioning in their mind.

So what you are saying is that they are doing it at the point of a gun and that's why they won't take no for an answer. That certainly puts things in a different light.

When you were in the religion how often did you have to do this? Also did you believe that God would destroy you if you didn't?

  • Tell them you used to be a JW but you were excommunicated.
  • No matter what they say, respond with "Gimme a quarter."

I get most of those except number 1 and...gimme a quarter?

lol...WHAT?!
JWs don't believe in blood transfusions. Some people need regular blood transfusions so, for them, becoming a JW would be suicide.

"Gimme a quarter" You haven't been to San Francisco have you?

I have not been to SF. At least not really. I passed it by as a child going to Disney Land.
