Default Re: Knock Here For Jehovah's Witnesses - All-purpose JW thread.

I have noticed many congregating in Melbourne's suburban streets of late.
Quite clearly the end is nigh..........
Generally speaking though they are mostly polite, as compared to Mormon,s and aren't quite as crazy as Calvinists.

Default Easiest way to deal with the JW's that just visited.

"Hello, we're from the Jehova's Witnesses."

'Can you please read my T shirt?'



"Oh, thank you. Bye."

'Don't ever come back!'

Ha ha. Christians are so funny. If only they read their bible. In a way I think it shows they don't really believe. If there was a book written by an author who created a universe, wouldn't that be a must read?

Classic.

My way was simply faster.

I could be wrong, but I think the Asian lady was reachable. Most team I have seen has one person who is the warrior for doctrine, and the other an inexperienced person in "training" [if that is the word] who follows the leader.

Last time I bothered to interact with JW door-knockers, it was a male pair. A young guy and an old foul dude. Luckily I am familiar enough with my bible to score some points against the young guy, who had potential, because the second, and more powerful weapon in my arsenal was science.

With the young guy I was scoring heaps of points on technical knowledge of the bible, and if that was not enough, I started giving scientific explanations for everything. The young guy got really interested, especially how I explained how science was able to gather useful information about the world, to cure disease etc. He was hooked, but unfortunately the older warrior for doctrine pulled him away, and that was that.

No doubt after these "harrowing" encounters the young neophytes are subjected to corrective re-programming. To wash away the corrupting influence of the trickster puppy!

Indeed, Sir Pup. Always lead with a sweeping kick to the knee-o-phytes.

That is precisely why we are not to make graven images. Commandment no.2.

That poor bastard, who modelled for it.
