I respect there beliefs, but I feel they have no right to come to my door, and try and push there beliefs on me. When you ask them to leave, and they keep pushing it, they make me wanna start handing out ass whippings in the name of my own religion.

They are on missions, I know with the mormans you can ask them to do stuff for you. I generally know them, or atleast have friends we know so I normally invite them in for a drink (orange juice) and just chill. They are actually really nice!

The Jehovah’s Witness I have come in contact with can be very judgmental. They usually don't want o have anything to do with non-Jehovah’s. Even on a friendship level. Some women I have met that were Jehovah’s wanted to convert me and said I would go to hell if I didn't. Well I chose the hell route instead. Big grin
I equate Jehovah’s Witness to a MLM (Pyramid Scheme). They are so fanatical about it that they can't even have a relationship (business/friendship/partner, etc.) unless they are Jehovah’s Witness too. It's almost impossible to be around these people unless they are pulling out some Watchtower literature or talking about doomsday! I am un-easy with any group of people that are so closed-knit and cast such harsh criticism of people of different beliefs.

As for the Mormons they can be nice people on the surface, but once you start having deep conversations about just about anything, the craziness comes out. I have friends who come from Mormon families and have rebelled against that church. Those are the ones I can deal with. I don't believe what the Mormons believe and they have a very ugly history. They are a changing church but that doesn't discount some of there strange beliefs.
I know a few non-mormons that lived in Utah and life was very hard for them there.

Hey guys,
have some fun with the JW when they show up at your door, in one of the following ways:
1. Ask them why they don't think denying blood transfusions is murder. (They'll leave your doorstep very quickly -- they're taught not to engage in discussions).
2. Ask them about the documentaries you've seen on TV about ex-members being shunned. (Same response)
3. Ask them if they are a cult (alot of their practices suggest that they are).
4. Ask them why they don't allow assocaitions with other religions.
5. Offer to sell them some religious writings from YOUR church (whether you have any or not).


Any of the above will send them hightailing it away faster than you can say "cult" !!

I've only had a couple jehovas visit me here in Kamloops in the last 8 years, offering the usual books and crap. I told them to go away. They're a bigger problem in Europe, and the only way to deal with them is with violence as they do not want to get out of your face.

JW is a messed up religion. I know of a family where the boy in the family was told explicitly NOT to associate with kids of other religions. The other kid in the family, a girl, distanced herself from the 'cult' and is leading a 'normal' life.

Mormons promote family, which is nice, but I disagree with their beliefs. I recall coming across an article a few months ago that found that Mormon sect will be the largest in US in a few decades if it maintains its current growth rate.

OK picture this it's 8:30 am and after another wonderful 16 hour shift in the ER (3P-7A) and being asleep for about 30min what do I hear to awaken me from my sleep but ring ring, knock knock progressing to pound pound bang bang etc. So to the door I stumble in a daze to find at the door ..... nothing. I was just about ready to head back inside when what to I hear from next door but the whole ring ring knock knock deal all over again this time I can see the cause of the noise some goofball in a suit (at 8:30 am mind you), with no response from my pals next door up the street the suit heads.

This for some reason puts me over the edge and off to my trusty Windstar van I go to buzz up the street to tell the suited one off. I pull up nest to him and what do I find but a big sh*t eatn' smile and a copy of the Watchtower being presented to me. Well not only do I not take the "fishwrap" but I let loose a rant I didn't know I had in me, felt quite good and better yet no JW's in almost a year.

Sorry to babble on but ya should have seen Mr. Suit after my rant. Now that I think about it it was quite enjoyable to vent after another "Mercy Monday"

Steve Young's great great great grandfather was Brigham Young. Young played college ball at BYU.

My town in Northern Nevada is infested with Mormons. They are nice people and yes they have huge families (Like half the town here has the last name Smith, Hendrix, Whitaker, Sorensen). The west has lots of Mormons. They are better than Jehovahs Witness, Jehovahs Witness are downright scary, there is one girl in my school, her sister got in a car wreck and the parents refused a blood transfusion and so she died. I notice there are a lot of black people that are Jehovahs Witness, and there are a lot of people from the South Pacific islands and Polynesia that are Mormons, also lots of northern Euro (Danish, to be specific) are Mormons, why is this?
