Ahhh. The sort of question that lawyers LOVE. Because they stand to make millions out of it.

Artikel 4 of the German constitution (1) The freedom of belief and knowledge and the freedom of religion and world view are invioble.

It took them years to decide that, that meant the freedom NOT to have religion, and said laweyers made said millions in the process.

Therefore JWs are allowed to stand on the street and hold up their propoganda, but unless they are approached, they are not allowed to "hand it out".

If I had the money, I would also want to take them to court over knocking on my door as well. Under the same regulation.

Strange that on the street my private space is protected, but the privacy not to be preached at on my own thresh-hold is not!

Well they can't come in...does that count? If you ask them to leave they have too.....

Would it be rude to put up a sign? No Vendors, Solicitors or Prosyletisers.

:lol: :lol: :lol: Oh God's thats awesome, not to be able to hand out those pamplets saying your going to Hell? :lol: :lol: :lol: , I was offended one night when hubby and I were kid free for the weekend and had the alone time we wanted, we went out to dinner to a nice resaurant and some guy came in off the streets and started handing out pamplets right there in the restaurant, I was mad. If that had been me doing that, I wouldn't have just been asked to leave. As it was hubby and I never went back to that place.

OH MY! SageWolf! That would scare ANY LDS missionaries away! Although I would only do that as a last resort, when no future boyfriends prospects or close family is around. 8-) ;)

I doubt that kind of thing would work though if you happen to be a shapely woman. More often than not, people are more afraid of the nude male form. And justly so. I know that if I did something like that, it might just make those people need counciling, but if my wife were to do it, I'm sure there would be JW's coming and knocking on my door every other day! :lol:

Only if you're comfortable with nakedness :lol: I think the point would be lost if you stood there all sheepish! You'd have to stand all manly and proud of your assets! Shamefaced nakedness wouldn't faze them, but a proud bare-it-all stance would have them running for the hills!

A few years ago my boyfriend would have thought that was a brilliant idea but now he prefers to share his body only with me rather than every witnessing caller :lol:

yep I'm suggesting exactly that, and I believe BOE is as well, although I can't speak for him. :lol: :lol: :lol: or just print out this picture and hang it on your door.

I found this somewhere on google. Someone posted this as text to put on a sign for your door.
(Unless you are someone under the age of 12 selling something sweet, like cookies or candy, at a price not to exceed $2.00, for your scout troop, sports team, or church group. I’m sympathetic to child slave labor, I like kids, and I like cookies even better.)

But if you do not fall into that category, I don’t want your magazine because I already have a subscription. I don’t want your newspaper because I already get it. I do not want to pay you to run, walk, swim, jog, jog-walk, swim-jog, or walk-run. I do not want to pay you to cure AIDS. I don’t want to fund your fraternity’s trip to Mexico. I genuinely hope that together we can help stop female breast cancer, and while I’ll be more than happy to give you a free exam, I do not want to pay you to examine others. I do not want a “trial” anything. I do not want to pay you to leave me alone, that’s what this sign is for. I do not want you to keep standing in front of my door, reading this sign in the hopes that I might have posted an exception for your particular breed of leech. If you want my money, feel free to try robbing me. I carry a knife with a 4-inch blade and will gladly extend your smile to your ears. Thank you, and the best of luck screwing over my neighbors.

That is pretty funny.

I like living here, almost no one comes to our door. I had a guy once who said he wanted to buy in our area and asked for a tour, I slammed and locked the door so fast he didn't know what hit him (sounded way too fishy to me...why not got to an open house)

Heh heh heh I love all those ideas ^_^

Am I really the only one who likes reading those awful things that the jehovies give out? Am I so terrible because I'm sympathetic when the sweet little old men want to convert me? If they were younger, or I didn't think they would break if they slipped on my porch, I'd run after them screaming, "YOUR AURA IS BLEEDING!" as is mentioned in another thread ;)

Seriously though, that whole religion just does not appeal to me. In their religion, only a few thousand people can get to heaven, and I'm WAAAAY low on the list of those that'll make it according to their rules. In my religion, we are already one with god(dess). No competition.

And besides: I like birthdays!

I don't care how many pamphlets they shove into my letterbox, I love mormons :lol: Mormons are the sweetest people ever. Well. In my experience, anyway. And South Park has taught us that they're the only people who get into heaven.

That reminds me, I was on the bus the other day, bedecked in black and lace as is my wont, and leaning on the seat in front of me listening to my beloved ipod, and this girl, on her way out of the bus, tapped me on the shoulder and handed me this letter. It said, basically, "I want you to know that god loves you, and that he has a plan for you, and if you take his hand you will be happy forever in heaven. I hope one day (in the distant future) to see you in Heaven ^_^" Now, normally I would be somewhat miffed, but two things stopped that:

1) she didn't interrupt my day. She didn't nag or bitch at me, she was all shy and just handed me a letter.

2) she looked so sweet, shy and genuine when she did it that I didn't take offense. I think she actually meant well. To be honest, I don't think she even thought I was a satan-worshipper or anything... I reckon she thought I was sad or troubled and lacking a spiritual contentment. This isn't so, and I wish I had the chance to set her mind at ease, but I do fear me that that would start some sort of row, so perhaps tis best to just send her a goodwish in thanks.
