    Oh well, there went the clean thread.
    The world is filled with violence.
    Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns.
    Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose.

    We get em here also. I'm a religious person but I don't like to push it on others. I try to do more by way of example, but I feel as though I often fail at that, so I kind of keep it to myself unless someone asks, then I'll do what I can to explain my beliefs and just be respectful. When it comes to door bell preachers I used to try and listen out of respect, but I am usually too busy now and I just try to get them off of my door step. When they get pushy I tell them to go to the veterans home, or the nursing home and help people who need help because I don't need or want anything from them and that plenty of people could use a hand without a sermon.
    I realize that people vary greatly in their beliefs and that pushing people is usually not a good tactic IMO to get them to see it your way.
    I listen to a lot of country music and my favorite song lately is Ronnie Dunn's song: "Bleed Red". At first it was a little deep and a little more forgiving and inclusive than I usually am, but I respect the guy for his respect for all, and his call for us to see that we really are not that much different from each other. I like the way he made his point without being pushy, and how this song is from his heart. It sobers me a little and I really like it, but I still carry a piece, feel just as strong about the 2A, and rather not be the guy that's going to bleed or cry (as the song has it) if it must happen, but in any case it's a great song IMO.

    I keep a special treat from my younger years for all the religious peddlers. It's called 2 Live Crew. I generally see 'em comin, cue up the cd to "Me So Horny", and wait till they start walking up the sidewalk. I have some extremely large speakers with 2,200 watts of power on tap in my house. It get's a little loud;). By the time they are ready to ring the bell, the whole house is vibrating, and there are many effenheimers floating on the breeze. If they ring the bell, I don't hear it!

    If they catch me by surprise, this is how it goes:
    Ding dong

    Me opening door (can tell who they are instantly)"Yeah?"

    They "Hi, we'd like to blah blah religious stuff"

    "Go away" SLAM!

    Dingdong!!!

    Me: Click-CLACK.

    Them: running down sidewalk.

    Problem solved.

    Only the JW ever rang it twice, everyone else got the idea with the solidcore 3 inch thick door slamming in thier face.

    I didn't get a chance to read everyone's reply. But I think the best way to handle the situation is to be polite and go with the "I appreciate what your doing but I'm very happy with my beliefs " and hurry and close the door be for they ask "well what are your beliefs?". Lol.

    For like 15 bucks I suggest investing in a "no soliciting" sign and post that thing up right next to your door. Than there's no guilt if they ring the bell and you never get up to answer it. Read the sign.....

    I suggest a No Soliciting sign, American flag and some sort of "this house is protected by ______ " sign. Should be covered with that.

    I get annoyed with those who feel they must be "witnessing" to the masses just as anyone else does. They do enjoy the freedom of religion as we all enjoy the freedom to keep and bear arms. When I insist on a constitutional debate it will usually confuse and discourage them enough they get frustrated and leave. I find myself with a strange little grin at that point.
    Those who would sacrifice freedom for security deserve neither...........Benjamin Franklin
