For what it is worth, a friend of mine in San Pedro, told me a few months back that the door-to-doors had made a number of approaches.

I had some Gringo Jehova knock on my door a few years back and I just asked them if they'd like me coming to their home and trying to sell them that God is a figment of mans imagination as there are things his small brain can't comprehend and he needs an answer, so he created God. They left.

I heard a story about a JW knocking on a door and having the resident say, "Come on in, what did you want to tell me?"

To which the JW responded - "Gee, I don't know what to say, I've never gotten this far before!"

I'm waiting for the croc to come with bible in mouth ready to give another sinner the word. Although we are now getting power so maybe it will be easier to see the light.

My JW friends stop by about every 3 months to see how I'm doing and we bs about sports, weather, and not about religion, they are a local father and son and are really nice guys.
On their first visit they found out I have taken most of the religious studies and philosophy of religion classes here at the U of I.
I found that as my book of knowledge grew my envelope of faith shrank. I would not try to persuade anyone that we are in a very soon time of an apocalyptic crisis, which is usually their pertinent message. I'm glad I studied such a variety of world religions, I no longer feel harassed or intimidated by JW's or Mormans and now greet them with a smile, and they often seem anxious to leave after listening to some of the thing I'll bring up:)

I'd like to taste the whole grain of truth before it is ground by the millstones of reason......good luck with that, huh.

I studied at a non secular college, and am non denominational.

I do not approach people about their beliefs, but I do try to respond respectively and intelligently if they try to push theirs onto me.

The problem with fundamentalim is those guys are scary.

My dog is a great listener too but he has trouble with his S's and T's smile

My god is better as your god, what a funny world.

The very funny thing with the churches here in Belize, they all believe in the same christian good, but they are in so much competition, that they really forget there believe and whats all about live.

For them, missionary is a question of life and dead,
and they so busy with the selling of soul saving programs, that there is no time to care about real daily life problems like violence, alcoholism, drug abuse or just cleaning the garbage from the yard.

Reading and understanding is not the same...
