So I’ve now been accosted by not one but two Jehovah’s Witnesses.
I try to be nice, usually making the hand gesture that I’m not interested or saying “No thank you.”
I’ve been accosted at Berth Q of our public transit hub for two days now, last Thursday and then again today.
Probably a fair bet that they’ll be back. And when they do approach me again, they’re going to get an earful. I only have so much tolerance for religious bullshit before I unload on them.
Just in case you hadn’t noticed, I am an atheist. But one with a serious religious background growing up where I learned all I needed to refute 99.999% of the arguments put forth by religious idiots.
And to have these Jehovah’s Witnesses (Another bat shit crazy cult!) try to proselytize, it just doesn’t hold any water.
So I suspect they’re going to get a nice lecture from me next time they approach.
I did it once before to a guy who repeatedly tried to bring me to Jesus. By the third try I had told him I didn’t believe in his twaddle, that the abilities of Jesus were a tad exaggerated, and that the entire Bible was a work of fiction. I also in not so many nice words told him not to try and proselytize me again. Come to think of it, after I’d read him the riot act, I never saw him around anymore.
Hopefully I turned him off his religion. Wouldn’t that be a hoot. I’ve always wanted to recruit more atheists. :)
