Well it sounds like you engaged them in the shop, hence they did what they are trained to do, reacted and tried to sway you to reconsider. Perhaps my
insight can help a bit on this count. I was raised as a JW (am not one for many years now), so I understand their need to 'preach' to everyone and
rebutt if you will someone declining their invitation or call. They are programmed repeatedly to do such, they have what are called theocratic
ministry school meetings designed to teach them (although they don't seem to get they are pushing a product) how to rebuttal someone and told it is
their christian responsibility in front of Jehovah/Yahweh to do so.
For a witness they are under constant pressure to conform, to produce, to be the good 'christian' completely oblivious to the fact that they are
sheep who would rival most sales persons alive at the ability to turn around a conversation to get their 'win'. This is what the Watchtower society
wants of them, to live in terror of not being good enough, not doing enough in the ministry to earn their salvation at armageddon.
They were simply doing what they are 100% indoctrinated to do..shove it down your throat. The only way to effectively get witnesses not to call on
your door is this magical phrase "Put me on your do not call list". You see, witnesses all keep a record of each street and house they call on, so
they can also track any interested party for a callback, to witness further to them aka try to convert them via a bible study. They are indoctrinated
to remove any caller who specifically asks to be put on the do not call list, this is your golden loophole people!
They will not call back, if you say it firmly and make it very clear you will not brook any re-occurance. Most of them are good people, with the best
of intentions, just utterly duped by a maniacal organization and as one poster mentioned even to the point of ripping families apart. They are
literally brainwashed into complete obedience of what the "governing body" says as the word of god. Not much different than Catholics and the Pope
or priesthood really, only difference, these ones come to your door.
