  • Depends entirely on the individual and the situation. I've been meaning to formulate a policy on this, but just haven't gotten 'round to it! :)
  • theres an jehovah witness church by my school and when i live on wednesday their always out giving pamphlets and stuff trying to talk to passerbys so i turn my ipod up and ignore the hell out of them dont need anyone pushing more religion on me my mom does that job well enough
  • I just tell them I'm a happy Lutheran and they go away.
  • If you tell them to never come back to my house, they have to mark you down and leave you alone. Or put up a No Trespassing sign. They have just changed their policy and are not allowed to go past a No Tres. sign.
  • If they come to the door I just tell them yes I do believe I am a Roman Catholic thank them for calling and close the door.
  • I nod and smile. Then I say, "thank you very much, I am a very happy Catholic." Then walk away.
  • Answer the door with a smile and say I do not have time to listen right now just write down your home address and when I have time I will come by and talk to you. If by chance they are stupid enough to give you their home address go see them about 2am. Keep all your junk mail by the door when you see they are standing out on your doorstep grab a piece of junk mail quickly open the door and try to sale them whatever you grabbed up. speak quickly so they do not have a chance to talk keep talking until they run away. You can put up a sign that says your not interested. answer the door in your underwear holding a shot gun and a beer answer the door in a burp. ask them how much they weigh as if your sizing them up for the crock pot. added points if you cover your t-shirt in fake blood.
  • Tell them I'm not interested and walk away. If that doesn't work, simply tell them I'm Baptist (and I am) and they are the ones who walk away.
  • never pick them up !!! only way ??
  • Tell them you are disfellowshipped. They shouldn't talk with you much.
  • ...Preach to them about certain faults in thier religion, instead of them preaching to me.
  • Well I am fine with them and their own religion, but when they come knocking and preaching to people's door - that is the most tacky thing someone can do. They htink people are too stupid and incompetent to look up religions and do research, to see which one fits them best. Thankfully, now my neighborhood has a strict NO SOLICITATION warning. But before, i had no time for them. They came weekly, on the dot. And i told them it was very disrespectful, then closing the door on them.
  • I tell them they have a fake Bible. Their "New World Translation" is no translation, but a perversion of the Bible. There are many verses that have purposely been changed to support the teachings of their founder Charles Russell. If you want detailed information on cults and how they compare to the King James Bible 1611, you should look for "The Kingdom Of The Cults" by Walter Martin. He goes deep into every major cult.
  • I tell them I knew a guy named Jehovah and I hated him. :D
  • Politely tell them to go away and shut the door.
  • Depends on my mood. Sometimes I tell them that my lord Satan will not be happy but they are more than welcome to join me before midnight mass. At other times I explain to them that I have already achieved salvation through the divine gift of slack as revealed by "Bob". That usually gets them scratching their heads. Sometimes I start stripping and invite them in for all-natural bible study. Needless to say, I have not had one come by lately
  • Politely tell them I'm not interested. Or show up at the door cleaning a gun.
  • tell them you are in the Jehovah's witness protection program and their visit may have jeopardized your life. Tell them to run and run fast, to their lives are in danger too.
  • A picture is worth a thousand words. Swing the door open and start taking your clothes off. At the same time, yell as if to someone in another room, "Okay set up the cameras and lights, Ralph !! The Porn Actors are here !!". Then look at your "guests" and in an impatient tone say, "well come on !! Get your clothes off !! Time is money, and we don't have all day !!". They will take off running and I guarantee they won't be back. LOL :)
  • I simply don't answer the door. I ask who it is they mention something about Jehovah's Witnesses or they have a message about God and I leave that door locked.
  • I don't. I don't even open the door.
  • I keep home rolled cigarettes on hand (tobacco) I come to the door and light one. Then say want any?
  • I would listen to what they have to say,It's not like they are going to be with me all day and waste my time!!
  • With respect and a Challenge
  • I ask them this questions. I have a knife in my back and have only three minutes to live, tell how I can be saved. According to them it is impossible, because they are relying on their good works to save them. According to the Bible, that won't work. Ephesians 2:8 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: 2:9 Not of works, lest any man should boast. Forgiveness hinges on two things, repentance, Luke 13:3&5, and being born again, John 3:3. Repentance doesn't just mean to say we are sorry, but to confess our sins to God, and turn from them. Being born again means to put our faith Jesus so when we jump from this life to the next, we will not perish. We put our faith in Him and Him alone, just as you would put your faith in a parachute if you were jumping out of a plane. Romans 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof. It takes a heart belief in Christ, not just a head belief. Now, ask them what kind of works the thief on the cross did that Jesus told this. Luke 23:43 And Jesus said unto him, Verily I say unto thee, Today shalt thou be with me in paradise. We see him confess his sinfulness: Luke 23:40 But the other answering rebuked him, saying, Dost not thou fear God, seeing thou art in the same condemnation? 23:41 And we indeed justly; for we receive the due reward of our deeds: but this man hath done nothing amiss. We see him put his faith in Jesus: Luke23:42 And he said unto Jesus, Lord, remember me when thou comest into thy kingdom. Jesus makes it plain that this man will be saved! Now it would be time to give them the good person test to see if they are like the rest of us. Look at the "mirror" of the Ten Commandments. Ever lied? Stolen? Lusted (adultery of the heart - Matt. 5:27-28) or had sex out of marriage? Guilty or innocent on Judgment Day? Heaven or Hell? ("All liars will have their part in the lake of fire" - Rev. 21:8). Jesus took your punishment on the Cross, proving God’s love. He defeated death. Repent and trust Him - God will forgive you and give you everlasting life. Read the Bible daily, obey it - John 14:21. God will never let you down. Oh, by the way, they won't come to my house anymore, but I was always glad to see them when they did.
  • When in doubt, be polite, smile, and say "No, thank you!" No need to be rude.
  • accept whatever they have to give me (you know, their witness magazines) and then hand them a book of Nietzsche, or maybe Voltaire. It's not rudeness actually, I'm just doing as they are doing. They always get mad though.
  • Politely smile (like I don't speak English) and just keep trekking!
  • If I see them in the neighborhood, I don't answer the door. I don't answer the door for any stranger for that matter.
  • You handle them with care, after all, they are just continuing on with the preaching work that Christ Jesus started.
  • Close the blades, cut down the tv and mind my business
  • Well that defeats the purpose. You get rid of them by offending them.
  • You tell them to bog off!
  • I tell them that as I don't think I am one of the chosen 144,000 who will be saved, they are wasting their time.
  • Tell them to go away in Russian, if that doesn't work, start arguing about how String Theory should replace Point Particle Physics and why. That does it every time. Ralley it doesn. ;+
  • i treat them like anybody else. ive met some nice people who were jehovahs witnesses. i dont hold anyones religious beliefs against them. but if they try to pitch me on their religion, i tell them simply, thanks, but no thanks.
  • if I see them through the peep hole (and this works with everybody, I tell them I am a muslim and I am not allowed to converse with strangers when my husband isn't home. But you can't let on youre joking or they won't leave.(also no offense to muslims, j.w.'s, mormons, etc...I just hate being bothered by people at home.) Plus, I think going door to door posing as a religious campaigner is probably the best way to get into someones house to rob/rape/murder/etc them. No thank you!
  • don't answer door or talk (aka)argue with them.
  • I open the door, greet them and then tell them I am happy with my religion and do not wish to change it. I then say goodbye and close the door.
  • There has only been one occasion they came down my driveway and passed by my huge sign that says in large red letters "PRIVATE PROPERTY, NO TRESPASSING". I asked them if they saw the sign about a mile down my driveway and they said yes! And started to ramble like I had not said anything at all. I told them that they had about 15 seconds to get out before I called the sheriff. They haven't returned. Yay!
  • I found that answering the door with a beer in my hand, showing lots of cleavage and leg, and yelling "Where did you put my cat-o-nine-tails?" usually gets rid of them rather quickly. And why do they ALWAYS come around in the worst rain storm?
  • Answer the door with a smile and say I do not have time to listen right now just write down your home address and when I have time I will come by and talk to you. If by chance they are stupid enough to give you their home address go see them about 2am. Keep all your junk mail by the door when you see they are standing out on your doorstep grab a piece of junk mail quickly open the door and try to sale them whatever you grabbed up. speak quickly so they do not have a chance to talk keep talking until they run away.

  • i dont answer the door.
  • go away!
  • I'm naked, I have an errection, and I am opening the door in 5 4 3 2...
  • I just say: Thank you, I'm not interested.
  • My husband is Muslim so that works but I also have family members that are Jehovah Witnesses so I say "do you know such n such, they say oh yeah, we know him well so I let them know I am their relative and they have already tried to persuade, didn't happen then and won't happen now, thank you!
  • I tell them nicely that I don't want them to waste their time and mine for something I'm not interested in. I thank them though, for stopping by and wish them good luck.
  • Well since I am a Christian I politly listen and then when they are done talking a share about Chriasianity with them.
  • these two guys in suits knocked at my door,i answered "Hello" one man looked at me and said "goodeveing sir,we were woundering if you would like to be jehovas witness?"i replyed with "im sorry mate ive been home all day and didnt even see the ACTCIDENT!!".haaaha,Joke,What dose works is loud heavy metal music you know the real grrowley stuff pumpn out the stereo,sure fire winna.
  • I used to bury them under the back porch, but that's just about all full now. I'm gonna have to find a new spot.
  • I've actually had this wonderful older lady come to visit me every once in a while. We had wonderful discussions at my door on commonalities in Christ and I did invite her in a few times. I had to read up on our Christian differences then asked her questions. She was very conversant with Bible scripture as well as their own intepretation. I also met another JW at the workplace - another graceful, pleasant lady. I wasn't about to convert; I made that clear. But, I did want to enjoy a friendship with them. I now understand that is impossible - JWs to not befriend those outside their own. I no longer open my door.
  • A swift kick to the nuts usually gets their attention.
  • If she's a 'cupcake', very gently?! ;-)
  • I must be a total ass because I answered the door in shorts no shirt with a beer in my hand and when they asked me who would save the world I said Satan.
  • ... take one look at them and invite them in at once, quickly get out your spell book and tell him you can remove that curse for $20.00 ... ??? isn't that why they came to you ??? you are a famous wizard !!!
  • +5. This is a true story, last week the same lady who has been coming here for almost two years got me early in the morning. I am always respectful to Jehovah's Witnesses. I am Southern Baptist and every time she would read me a scripture against Christian believe like the Trinity, I would quote her a scripture for it. The poor lady was trembling. I asked her why and she did not know. But we spoke for about a half hour and I told her God bless her and she told me the same. I really respect people who will go door to door to spread their faith in God.
  • i just had some last week, i answered the door, saw a stack of "watch tower" magazines, said not interested and closed the door. if you are to nice they will try to worm their way in anyway, kind of like telemarketers. now don't get me wrong, i'm not saying no thanks to god, just, that's not my religion (Jehovah's Witness) and i'm not interested in converting.
  • Say no thank you, my salvation is covered. Close the door.
  • start preaching to them, give em some pamphlets.
  • Don't let them get a word in edgewise while you go on and on about the benefits of door knobs or lawnmowers. Just keep talking over them and at the same time as them.
  • The best way for me to handle these people is to tell them that I am Catholic and they run for the hills!
  • I discuss God with them civilly and invite them to my Catholic parish. With love in Christ.
  • It's time to worry when JW's don't call. then it means the hope of being saved out of the destruction of this wicked system has gone. Matt 24:14
  • We have a system on our block where one neighbor calls the other so we don't answer the door. There are always one or two people that get stuck though.
  • "No thank you, have a nice day".
  • Shake my head and wonder how they got so brain-washed.
  • just tell them youre busy and cant talk right now
  • just dont answer the door
  • I just ask them to leave, because I do not want to hear their rants.
