What are your thoughts on them as people and their religion. I work at a hotel and have to deal with them every few weekends and they are just not smart. They are rude and cheap but will roll out the dough for their religion.

Thoughts pit?

i normally am polite. but a pair of jehovah's witnesses came to the door, i said no thanks and they left. Two minutes later another pair came to the door and asked "is your parents in?" I told them no my parents ARE not in, and to stop bothering me.

i know a couple of them they dont seem any different to normal people-expect one of them wants to take over the world

They're people just like everyone else, and it's the ones who abuse them that are the dicks. It's extremely simple to just say "Sorry, but I don't have the time/I don't want to hear about your religion."


i never abused anyone, they abused me...they are usually rude but as with everything there is an exception to every rule and some are nice but most are rude. and i've heard them tell me about their religion, i've researched it, and it's absurd

i dont like them.

if i want to follow a religion, which i dont, but if i do then i'll choose it myself thanks.


but i have some funny stories about them though:

1: aparently whenever they knocked on my grandma's door she'd invite them in and not let them leave, arguing the hell out of them. i lold wen i heard that.

2: there's a church for them where i do my paper round and when i did the sunday papers up there, one morning i passed it and saw written underneath "The Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses" the word "Gays"


i lold.

well ive always been a bit predudiced towards them because when I was about 6 my best friends dad came running into the house shouting at us to hide because a couple of of "jovies" were coming
#12
As far as I know, they are very polite people. They are very strict about their religion. But whe have Jehova's witnesses as neighbours, and those are pretty eccentric.


#13
I seriously dislike the notion of trying to force your believes on someone else, trying to recruit for a religion is just plain wrong. They aren't neccessarily bad people and their believes are as valid as mine but no religion should do that.

My father got so annoyed with them (they even came on sunday morning) that he once opened the door naked. I've never seen Jehovah's witnesses since then.

I was lying on a bench quietly dying of thirst and hunger on my way back from leeds once and a Jehova's Witness (yes just one, on his own :O ) came up to me and started preaching to me about his religion.
I pointed out that if I was indeed a tramp as he thought, I would rather have a sandwich than a sermon, and that also I am a christian and pointed out the huge amount of contradictions in what he was saying (of course he could have done the same to me but he wasn't that clever).
Then he drove off in a huge 4X4 and I lost what little respect I'd had.

i don't like to stereotype or generalize an entire group of people, but having dealt with dozens of them coming to my door, i can honestly say that i can't imagine i would ever like one. any religion thats doctrine is to force itself on others is fundamentally wrong and it's worshippers should be ashamed. to quote the great Carlin: the first and most important commandment: Keep Thy Religion To Thyself.
#21
I have no problem with them so long as they don't try forcing their religion on me. If that's the case, then I bring out the oranges, for some reason they tend to run really fast when you hurl oranges at them

...And isn't that what the second sentence in my post explicitly says is the best thing to do? To tell them "I'm not interested"?
#23
I don't mind them as people, but as for where I live, they tend to want to cram their bulls*** down your throat, and that's what ticks me off about them. I also have this friend whose grandfather invited two Jehovah's inside and proceeded to convert them to Catholicism... he succeeded
#24
I find them really annoying, but they really believe to the sh*t they are trying to make us believe to, so they think they are trying to do a favor to us. But I think we should find out what we believe or don't believe in by ourselves.

I'm not going to judge the people because I'd only end up generalising but I dislike the idea that any religion would tell people that they can't accept organ donations, give organs or give blood. That's pretty evil IMO.
The shunning is also ridiculous, and the fact that some JW communities are stupidly insular (Don't date anybody who's not the same religion etc)

I don't see the benefits of those practises at all.

this is the essence of the JW

they are so cheap at my hotel, but they buy such nice clothes and cars it's kind of sick.

my friend had one back up into his basketball hoop (broke it) then drive away.
I lol'd

But I agree with first post, I dont generalize. Ive seen probably 3 Jehovas Witnesses in my life and Im not gonna stereotype the millions of them out there.

When they knock on my door I tell them if they can prove god exists then I'll believe. That usually baffles them.

Next time I reckon I'm gonna come up with my own belief system and start preaching to them :P

My Dad was involved with them for about 18 months and I can tell you now, they are the most mild-mannered, polite people I have ever met in my life. I was at lots of BBQ's and other social functions with them and I never met a JW who was rude or aggressive. If you don't want to listen to them, just say so politely. If they dont leave after that (un-usual), just say No Thanks and close the door.

They believe they are helping others by teaching them about Christianity and their religion. You wouldn't believe the sh1t that these people go through. They're treated like lepers and they lose many of their old friends. People abuse them daily while they are going door to door but they carry on because they believe it is right.

Even if you don't agree with them, have some respect for them.

I think the religion is a lot more deserving of a lack of respect

Never had one come round, ever. Don't think I've even met a person who I knew to be a Jehova's witness.

But not by giving actual help, like by donating blood or donating their organs after they die.

Ah now, Thats just one way to help someone that goes against their beliefs. I'm sure they make up for it with alot of other help.
