Two men clothed in white.....


Well, rain clothes, actually, 'cos it was bucketting down....


came to my door this afternoon.
Yep......WTBTS time again.
Without pausing to enquire regarding my faith (presumably the rain blurred their vision, as the ICTHYS symbol above the letterbox might just have given them a clue), the opened what, for want of a better term, they called their Bibles.
"Hang on", I said - let me use a better translation.
"We don't use Apostate bibles."
Luckily, I'd been doing stuff on the computer...and I promptly keyed to a link showing them that their group WERE happy to use an 'apostate' translation for moat of their history.
THey claimed this was a slanderous site.
I again pointed out that the stuff came from their own publications.
They rose to leave - unable to continue the conversation (must've been water in their ears).
I asked the question I always ask.
"Would I be better off dead having refused a bllod transfusion, or am I better off having recieved the transfusion which saved my life?"
All I got in return was the usual incoherant robotised gibberish.

They left.

I have just had a visitation from members of that unpleasant cult a few minutes ago a few minutes. I said, 'no thank you' as I shut the door. I don't know why they bother, no one around here gives them the time of day!

Drat.
I forgot to take one....the neighbour has a cat and that shredder turns it into quite adequate litter, don't y'know!

There seems to have been an explosion of JWs touting their wares and beliefs in my home town just now.  They must have an imminent newly predicted date on their calendar.       JWs: 10/10 for effort.  0/10 for content.

Yep. You have to admire their persistance - if mot the content of their drivel....'cos, after relating my story, I've discovered they even targetedthe local kirk minister....and the priest of the RC church.
That's what I call the unfulfilled triumph of hope over experience!

locally they have not been knocking on doors, rather they have been standing outside the local train stations.

Our local buskers tend to be Mediterranean types playing accordions, down the A21 in Tunbridge Wells buskers tend to be posh kids playing expensive semi acoustic guitars to an amplified orchestral backing CD.
