Do the JW's actually want me?

Why do they keep knocking on my door? What is the tactic? Wear me down so I join their little cult?

I knew the JW's weren't too smart,(if they want Bob) now I'm positive they aren't.

But if Bob isn't joining he is smarter than I thought. :dyinglaughing:

Just follow Robin Williams' advice. When they show up at your door to ask you if you've found Jesus, stand there stark naked and say, "No, but let's go look for him!"
Where oh where’d my body go?
Africa or Mexico?
Where or where’d my body go?
Where’d my body go?
Have you seen my ghost?
Staring at the ground?

I have had them at my house 4 times this year. I just say I'm an athiest and shut the door. Don't they have a list or something so they know religion is not to be pushed on my property? I guess I could make a sign or something.

BoB, you are a lightweight soft'backside'! Your initial encounter with these fools is the one that determines if you(your address) are/is on their "DO NOT VISIT" list! That is official, and perhaps you might consider 'rage bordering on assault' for future visitations.

When I see the JWs coming, I tell my young kids they are allowed to raise hell. Running in the house, jumping on the furniture, yelling at strangers, and even breaking dishes is okay for the next 5 minutes. Go nuts kids.

Then I open the door and invite them in for tea. Even though I express interest in what they have to say, they don't stay long.

One time I had a friend's mom show up at the door with a couple of her JW friends. She acted as if she didn't even know me. It was really weird as she definitely knows who I am.

I love talking with them!
They discuss real world/city issues, and they truely understand what is wrong with society.
When I ask them, what they as a group have done about it, they have no answer, other then we can all group together and talk to one another about it.

I tell them, when they come up with a plan to Instigate real changes in society by real action, to call me and I will join forces with them. But don't come back until your changes are being implemented in society!

I told the last 2 that they were all talk and no action!
They haven't come back. :dyinglaughing:

This is the most thoughtful and best course of action I have ever heard regarding dealing with JWs or J Dubs as I like to say. Although their doctrine is (imo) strange the JWs that I have met and worked with were nice people with a genuine care for ethical/moral behavior. I get the impression that the JW "atmosphere" breeds a great deal of fear.
