Freedom from Religion

I'm all for freedom of religion. I think everyone should be able to believe or not if they want. I think this freedom is very important to our country. Please feel free to glory in your beliefs but please god, don't come knocking at my door after dark when we are having a rash of burglaries in my neighborhood.

Every few weeks, a duet of neatly dressed young men come a knocking at my door wanting to save me from my sins or something. Every time I ask them to go away and please don't come back. Put me on your "do not knock" list. But still they come.

Once when my sister was visiting from Norway, she answered my door for me and spoke to the nice young men in Norwegian and broken English. I could barely contain myself as she sent them on their way. For about 2 years they stayed away. They're BACK!

Of course there is another out there lurking in the bushes. They are the Church of Vinyl Windows. They want to save me too.


  1. Oh my goodness! This is funny stuff. I am with you, I believe in freedom of religion and even go to church most of the time but I feel uncomfortable with the door to door folks. I understand what they are trying to do but I just think there are better ways such as working within your community and being an example of what a christia is. Just my humble opinion. ;-)

  2. Remember the Church of Avon or the Temple of the Fuller Brush Man? Guess I'm gonna have to come back and "encourage" them not to come back. Nobody likes "foreigners"! Doh!

  3. Oh my goodness! You are right! Eve screwed up alot for us women!

    And that is too funny what your word verification was. You read French? ;-) hee,hee
