i thought it was interesting... we have a little cross in our window and are christian, so i thought it was funny that these two kids in shirts and ties came to my house and gave me a jahovas withess pamphlet.

i was in my underwear none the less...

thought i'd share.

Some years ago when I were 14, Jahovas came to our house and it was a couple of days after X-mas. I let them in and they sat down. They talked about peace on earth.
In front of us on the table was my X-mas gift - an air rifle!
Luckily my parents came home and ended the embarrassment.

No, I think it has to be more like "Jenova's Witnesses" (FF7-joke... ha ha).

I just tell them that I don't think God cares which church you belong to as long as you follow his rules, and they shut up almost imidiately http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif. They don't like hearing that.

Are they the guys who wonder around like nomads and wear white shirts and thin black ties ala men in black? Those guys scare me. A few weeks ago I was on the train coming home from the city with Mum and this bible basher (I have no shame in calling them that coz it's true) and he came and like sat with us and started rambling on, he did it the dodgy way though, talking about the weather and stuff then he started going on about God and stuff. According to whatever religion it was, God comes from America... How the hell they came to that conclusion is beyond me. Anyone got any ideas? He then proceeded to ask if he could come over to our house one day, like ok suuuuuuuure invite yourself to our house http://www.escapemi.com/forums/rolleyes.gif Then as a last straw he gave me his bible and wrote his phone number in it and gave it to me. I like the pweddy pictures in it http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Reminds me of this thing I read in the newsgroups a long time ago.. Took me a while to find it, but here it is:

<hr size="1">
Freakin' the Evangelists, or: Later, Day Saints!

We had a "visit" here in my house earlier this weekend from some evangelist missionaries. Not that I have anything against evangelists, but I think prosteltyzers rank up there with Direct Sales over the phone, the Psychic friends network, and, door-to-door, are not nearly as cute as Girl Scouts (plus, they don't have cookies).

The players:

Me, Tristan Clair de Lune, the extremely handsome, talented and witty Rialto junkie

Rachyl, my girlfriend, also a Rialto reader.

Keith, (or, Phil-in-the-Blank Clair de Lune) a 6'6", 280-pound stick jock (and my brother)

My "other brother," William, a collegiate fencer, busy cooking up a Chinese banquet for my parents who were coming.


Scene: Tristan is nibbling on Rachyl's ear, washing dishes for dinner, or playing with his armor [recollections vary].

William: KEN! Could you come here?

Me: What is it?

William: Just come here!

Me: OK (puts down the hamster)

Ken walks down the hall to see his brother and girlfriend conversing with two Nordic-looking, clean-cut gimp-types with name tags.

Gimp #1: Hello! My name is Todd, and I'm from the Mormon Church of Latter-Day saints.

Me: How special for you.

Gimp #2: Have you heard about the Mormons?

Me: Yes, I have. Sometime in the 19th century, some guy thought he was a prophet, went insane, moved out to Salt Lake City, got into trouble with a lot of seagulls, and, hey, y'know Roseanne Barr is from out there?

Gimp #1: So, you've heard of us?

Me (washing dishes): Yes, but we already have a religion, thank you very much. We're Jewish.

Rachyl: We rather like it...

Me: But should it ever break down, we'll be sure to call you.

[Rachyl and Keith collapse laughing]

Me: That reminds me... Rachyl... isn't it time to light Shabbos candles?

Rachyl: Yeah...

Me: Excuse me for a minute...

[Rachyl and Keith continue to talk to the Mormons]

Me (picking up a very large sword from my bedroom wall and shouting down the hall): RACHYL! IS IT TIME TO SACRIFICE THE GOAT YET?!?!?!?!?!?!

Rachyl: No, you have to wait until the moon comes out!

[Gimp #1 looks at Gimp #2. William continues to chop up the tofu]

Gimp #1: Excuse us. We must be going.

[Switch camera. Tristan is rooting through his closet]

Gimp #2: Thankyouverymuchforyourtime...

[The Wonder Gimps turn to leave. Quickly].

Me (running from the bedroom in his black cloak, waving a large sword):

CHRISTIAN BLOOD! WE NEED CHRISTIAN BLOOD!!!!

[Switch to: Benny-Hill-esque shot of Mormons running away down the driveway of House of No Sexual Morals, AKA House Four Down From Ogami].

Me: Damn. We lose more Mormons that way.

It's "Jehovah's Witnesses," BTW. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/tongue.gif

You (for a moment there) had some Kabalah symbolism in your siggy newfoundgloryboy. You changed it as I posted, so now it's gone.

How much do you know about them? Are you a follower?

Aah ...Ta, murta, that explains why the signature changed. Now the question, is he a Kabbalist? ...or more correctly a Qabbalist? at least one of his graphics has their symbology.

That you didn't know tells me that you aren't a follower.

If your curious, the symbols that "bookend" your alias are representative of the 10 spiritual power points of the body and mind. Ancient Hebrew magic. I think it influenced the Indian Chakras.

But, since they were upside down, I thought you were poking more fun at the Hebrews. Clearly, this is not the case, not that I was offended ...it made me laugh, but the joke was only for me, it seems.

Thanks for responding.
