^^^^^^^^^^^^yes, 'they' do.(of course not all of them but on that occasion, the ones that were at my door lied right to my face, plain and simple..thats all there is to it. they said my wife asked em to come to talk and it was not true...what would you call that?
the vast majority are very good people in terms of morals and ethics, and the world would do good to use those standards as a model.
^^^^i disagree. i would feel much better about them if they did not lie when they come to my house and quite frankly, when they see the no soliciting sign, just walk away.....
if you just tell them that you're not interested and ask them never to return, they should respect that.
^^^^^^yes i know. but, they didn't respect my wishes. they came to my house 4 times just this summer. i did not have the sign up the first visit so i let it slide.
maybe a few are a little overzealous, but don't take that as a sample for all of them.
^^^^^all i really have to go on i what i have seen and heard with my own eyes and ears. what i have seen is them not respect me in my own home. why should i give them the time of day?
i realize this is off topic, but i get a little defensive when people poke at something that was mostly a positive influence in my younger years.
^^^^^just cause it was a positive influence to you, don't mean it is that way for me.
aside from an occasional knock at the door, what have they done to offend or upset you?

the three books end with the death of god. there is no direct mention of god or jesus in the film, the kids are menaced by a shadowy figure called the majisterium

Kids honestly don't interpret things like that anyways.
