Once upon a time, when the world was young...
Tell me about it! I had two Jehovah'sWitnesses at my door yesterday letting in the cold and the smell of religion. Actually they weren't that bad. They started by saying "Do you believe in the devil" before asking me how come I couldn't accept the idea of religion.A friend of mine said that I should have replied thus,"Believe in the devil? Hell, yeah! Come on in - I thought I was alone with this."
You should have invited them in. I always do (if I have the time). Nine times out of ten they aren't really expecting it and they're not quite sure what to do next. When it comes down to it, most of them don't really know enough about their own religion to withstand a full scale onslaught of fiendishly clever and insightful questions. I actually convinced one that they had talked me out of joining them. She went away very disappointed indeed! Still, if they can't be bothered to send me a worthy opponent, they shouldn't be too surprised when they leave feeling like they've been intellectually raped.
