If they come back, and I answer the door, I would ask them why they only came after me when I live in a good neighborhood, why they never came to the ghetto, when I lived in the apartments with the dirty syringes, head shops, drug dealers, meth addicts, and prostitution. Don't they need God too?

I think that would do the trick.
God Bless you Kitty!

Good points!

And I agree, most are very good and decent people who believe very strongly in what they are doing. Some people like to tell stories like they opened their bibles and read a few verses and they ran away screaming and yelling....it simply doesn't happen like that.

Most JW's are very versed in scripture and have well prepared answers for just about anything. It could go on for hours if you let it. They train over and over again and are very good at point/point debates. I'm sure some might encounter a young teenage girl with little experience, but a veteran JW can easily go toe/toe for hours and is well prepared.

I have so many serious differences with their sect I just don't even consider having some front porch debate. I just treat them with respect and some dignity even though we have massive differences.

I'm not there to pump up my ego and pretend I "whacked them a good one for Jesus" but rather try to be considerate and just know the Holy Spirit might have used me in some way.

The older I get the more I try to get out of God's way and know He's the changer of hearts and not me.

After three months of putting up with them at the door every week I had a rather lengthy conversation with their head elder at 2:30 one morning. He finally said if you have a sidewalk or driveway leading to your house that is implied consent for them to come to your door and there is nothing you can do about it. The only way to stop them was to post a sign saying Jev. witness--keep out. The sign finally worked.

I tell them something similar. It's not technically a lie. I haven't had any at the house in a long while.

I have a simple solution. I simply don't answer to unexpected visitors. Never have. The way I figure it, friends and family always call first. To see if I'm home, if I'm busy or have time for company, etc. Strangers always want something from me, or to sell me something. Why bother going to the trouble, just to tell them no, anyway?

I'm under no obligation to answer my door. Same as I'm under no obligation to answer my phone. And I do it the same way. I won't answer to someone I don't recognize. They can leave a message, and if there's a need, I'll call back.

Just like I make use of the ignore features online, I do so out in the world too.

A certified letter from a lawyer can work as well, then its a trespassing charge. . . .

For me, if/when I open my door and in some seconds know who it is, be it salesmen or JWs, I give a firm and simple, "No thanks" and close the door. No arguments. No anger. No meanness. No lying. No excuses. No hiding. No time wasted. Besides, they're the ones walking in the ridiculous Arizona heat, not me. Hope they're wise enough to bring and drink lots of water.

Tell them you were born and raised as a JW and you left because they are full of it.

All JW's, just like the Mormons are not allowed to associate with those that were given their "truth" and rejected it. Works every time.

Acting crazy works too. Tell 'em to get the **** out and yell "SATAN" a bunch of times.

They used to do that to me too, until I invited them in. Once they were in my domain, I put a little scare in to them. Now, they avoid my house like the plague.

Mormons are easy to deal with. Just accept the card they give you and that's it. I've lived next door to Mormons before the Army and they only ever offered to help move furniture and stuff, said hi when passing, gave me a card one time. I had tons of Mormon friends in the Army. Never had an issue.

The JW? Mm. Answer the door and tell them "not interested and close it". If they persist, let them watch you call the police because now, they're trespassing.

Anyone have a sure fire way to get them to stay away?

Had them show up about a week ago. Older gentleman and a young boy. The boy did all the talking. I let him talk then politely told them I was Baptist. Kid responded with "Okay, we respect that" and they left.

Is this really such a problem for some of you people? I was in the yard just yesterday, two women parked their car on the street, I was in the front yard kicking the soccer ball with my 4 year old daughter and they had just left the neighbors porch, I didn't identify them as JW, I just thought they were maybe selling something. They walked up the drive, commented about the beautiful little daughter, handed me a pamphlet and left. I took it and put it in my pocket, and later tossed it in the garbage when they left. It didn't ruin my day, believe it or not.

Some of them are more aggressive than used car salesmen. You got a nice one.

I had a friend in New Mexico that would see them
in the neighborhood and he answered the door
naked and invited them in to drink and fornicate.

I told them I felt like Judas went to heaven because he fulfilled a vital role in the progression of Jesus to the cross and ascension to heaven.

They never came back after that - had been here 4 or 5 times.

Pretty much what I do.
I understand they are supposed to spread the word.
I tell them thank you,but I'm happy with my church,have a good day.
If they don't leave,I just shut the door.
