Would be nice if they respected me the same as I do them.
Again, I have no idea what they want to accomplish. If it is solely to talk about God, that is what church is for. If it is to persuade someone to join their religion, that is just plain stupid for thinking that will work. I think it might just be that it helps them sleep at night to know they spread God's word.
I have always responded the same here in North Carolina as I did in Kansas. I am friendly and cut the conversation very short by saying I am not interested, have a nice day goodbye. The only church I have been rude to was Jehovah Witnesses. That is because I told them I was not interested and the sneaky shitbags came back when I was not home. I guess the truck not parked in the driveway is an easy hint. This happened twice once in Wichita and once in Haysville. In Wichita the I found some of their propaganda on the kitchen table and asked the wife about it. She said they were nice guys and did not want to hurt their feelings. It worked out because a few weeks later I had my truck in the shop and was home when I normally would be at work. I heard a knock at the door and answered standing in front of me was the clowns I had run off, they were very surprised and clearly nervous. I walked out on the porch as they retreated off of it. I told them to get the **** off my property and if they returned they would catch a beating.
The 2nd time was the same deal only that time when I saw the same type propaganda I found out my daughter was their target as the wife and I both worked during the day at that point. She like her mother is too nice to tell them to **** off, although both should have mentioned I would become a problem if they did not go away. In this case I knew where their cult headquarters were located at. I lived on the very west side of Haysville and they have a cult compound just north of 71st and Meridian. I took the paperwork to their building and tried to walk in but the doors were locked, there were a half dozen or more cars in the parking so I knocked on the door several times with no answer. I took the leaflets and wrote them a note saying I lived at xxx Ranger st and if they returned my response would not be friendly so stay the **** away from my house and placed it in their mailbox. Both times after facing the idea of consequences for their stupidity they never returned. At this point It needs to be said that my daughter and her mom both still believe, the daughter was close to my mother and holds the Irish catholic line while her mom chooses the nondenominational path. I have had the same conversation with them I am not interested~
