I used to turn away Jehovah’s Witness solicitors but then I realized they always have really great filter paper.

They just need a hug. Make sure you're only in your underpants when you give it to them!
People think "queue" is just "q" followed by 4 silent letters.

But those letters are not silent.

They're just waiting their turn.

I feel terribly sorry for most them - particularly the women who are controlled like cattle by cold-eyed taxi drivers and plumbers depending on what 6 guys in Brooklyn decide is God's will this week.

Over here, they mostly don't do house visits, but stand around in city centres and at train stations presenting books and magazines in a trademark mobile book stand. They do never actively approach people but wait for someone to address them which almost never happens. A boring occupation.

Here's an (converted) islamist explaining some Jehova Witnesses that the word Jehova wasn't used in the original Greek of the New Testament, but they don't seem to be able to grasp that the Bible wasn't written in the German language.

Well, "yehouvah" is the official Hebrew pronunciation of the tetragrammaton, of course, out of respect and to obey the command not to take the Name in vain, whenever it happens, they say "elohim" or "adonai" instead.

They have appeared at one corner a few months ago just the same way. They never reappeared. Even the church across the road has a stand out on Sundays trying to get people in. How it keeps going god only knows :lol:
The regular 10 idiots cant pay that much. Oh they do have the southern baptists in the afternoon of course.

Where's God? I asked.

"All around", She said, waving her hand in the air.

"Luke 17:20-21", I said.

It went very quiet after that...

I have NO BELIEF in the existence of a God or gods. I do not have to offer proof nor do I have to determine absence of proof because I do not ASSERT that a God does or does not or gods do or do not exist.
