A Jehovahs Witness, or a member of the Very Late(r) Day Saints knocked on my door again this Sunday.
After the usual greetings and preamble about God loving me, and me telling him to pi . . go away, the conversation went something along these lines:
Him: “How do you feel about God?”
Me: “Did you know that there’s an invisible unicorn in my back yard that kills invisible babies and eats them. Do you believe me?”
He looked puzzled and replied “No, because I don’t believe in unicorns. They are just the stuff of fairy tales”
Me: “That’s how I feel about your god. Goodbye”. *Sound of door closing*
The invisible and the non-existent look very much alike to me.
If there are any Jehovah’s Witness out there and you feel offended by my attitude, don’t take it personally, because I just don’t like the whole bloody lot of you!

My mother was always too polite (New England Yankee upbringing) to shut the door to those pests, so we’d have them in our sitting room blathering away, while my mother counter-argued every one of their points.
Undeterred, they would show up week after week, hoping to “convert” her; she, loving the challenge, would argue and argue. I learned that there is no reasoning with a True Believer, an important part of my early education.
After a while, when they knocked on the door, I’d find a reason to go feed the animals, or ride my horse to the next town–anything to get out of the house.
I tried that tactic once, but they are so brainwashed that they wouldn’t take “NO” for an answer, even when I told them I was a practising witch and would they like a cup of my excellent beetle-wing tea and a hemlock-cream homemade cake. – Keith.

If I’m in my office upstairs they often give up before I get there. Luckily for them.
Your reputation goes before you! Methinks they know better than to argue with you. – Keith.

They seem to be concentrating their efforts in this area just recently, ten of them in one road! I just don’t answer the door anymore, life is too short.
