I once knew a guy who would invite Jehovah's Witnesses inside to pitch their views only so he could shoot them down. He wouldn't actually listen to what they had to say or try to understand because he simply wanted to say, "no" to them and leave them feeling defeated.

When I was much younger they, JW's, came to my door early one morning. I invited them in, sat down with them and started rolling a joint. Then I got up and got a beer. They left.

You have to give it to them for giving everyone a chance instead of just assuming that everyone is irreparably possessed by demons.

You asshole! If you invited me in and rolled one and didn’t offer me a hit, I’d leave too.

I have been told "I have to understand" all my life.


My thought is nobody has to understand anyone else, especially when it comes to religions and believes about one or more divine spirits hanging out making decisions or supposedly directing us. It kind of strikes me as screwy. Not a particularly helpful method to persuade folks "come to God" (or whatever the chosen name of the day is).

I have curiosity of the beliefs or lack thereof of others. Never saw it as my place to drag them down the road I've traveled...or send them down another one.


But that's me.

@Leadfoot,
Awright. You sound macho today. Razz It doesn't enhance your position.

@edgarblythe,
Macho? Like I said, a man's gotta know his own limitations. I’m not running for anything.

Full disclosure: Maybe just a little under the influence. Sorry if it offends you.
