Jehovah’s witness solicitation
I don’t have a problem with religious people going door to door soliciting their message. Even if I don’t agree with it, this is America. But I’ve had some Jehovah’s witnesses visit our home a few times now. They park across the street, walk right up to the door and ring the door bell. Two times I didn’t answer the door and three times I did. When they leave they go right to their car and drive off. They aren’t soliciting the neighborhood, they are targeting me.
Today they visited while I was mowing the lawn. I’ve told them a couple times now that I am Catholic. Well today they went on to ask me if I thought the world was coming to an end. Boy I wanted to give these a piece of my mind but I held back and told them I wasn’t interested and walked away.
There may be some honest and reputable organized religions out there, but from the education I have obtained over the the years, I’ve associated organized religion as a way for the strong and manipulative to take advantage of the weak and frightened.
In my opinion, the best thing someone can do who seeks spiritual guidance is read a Bible, or what ever other religious or spiritual book that inspires you, and make your own decisions on what everything means. As Thomas Paine once said, “My mind is my church”. Just remember to use reason, as it is human to seek the answers we want rather than the answers that are true or unanswerable.
