When you answer you should start very kindly, pretend that you're listening, then when you hear something that seems to be very important scream: "Heretics! You shall burn in the pits of HELL!"

My friend used the sentence "Oh please come in, we needed 2 more for the orgy"... They were gone before you could say Thou shalt keep thy religion to thyself

Mark there door by going over and having a piss on it. If someone ask you what you are doing say "I am marking the door with my holy water". That would be pretty funny.

Where I used to live a JW family would ring my doorbell & as soon as I opened the door their little girl, aged 8 or 9, would start talking. I guess they thought people would hesitate to slam the door in a kid's face. They were wrong...

You could also just hang an American Flag. They won't even knock then.

Because some of us have no choice but to be rude, but like I said, they count on us feeling bad.

Even outside when i'm walking my dogs they will see me and start homing in, extending their hand to be shaken but I always just say hi and walk by. They act all shocked and hurt but it's interesting to see how fast that wears off when they think you're gone and no longer watching. They just troop on to their next victim ready to deliver another oscar-winning performance if they are rebuffed.

Why would the Flag keep them away?

I'm not sure of the meaning or anything, but they will not approach a house flying an American flag.

My parents live in an area where there are a lot of Jehova's Witnesses, and they don't knock on my parents' house, while they will knock on the neighbors who don't fly American flags.

I saw a couple of Witnesses yesterday. Actually, they could have been Latter Day Saints. Whichever wears the buttoned up short sleeved, white shirts, dress pants, and a tie. They're way too nice for me to have tried anything here, but they asked me a yes or no question: did I have time to talk today?

Now, I was slowly walking along a winding path next to a river. I'm on summer break. I played 6 hours of Daggerfall yesterday. Nope, no time

I'll ask one of the newbies next time I see her about the Witnesses and the door marking. She's disfellowshipped and she's going to be an anthropologist.
