You know what ERKS me...Pushing religion
I don't have a problem with different religions. I like the fact that people bring hope & meaning to their lives. I am a Presbyterian, and my husband is a Catholic. We raise our son somewhere in the middle. But what I can't stand is people who argue with me about religion. My Aunt for example, a Jehovah's witness, used to call my mother ever Christmas and argue with her over Jesus. Eventually she got the point and now she just sends us a box of pamphlets every year, which actually make great kindling for our evening fire!!
I remember once this guy wanted to debate on my front porch step. I told him that I would invite him into my home and he could preach to me as long as I got the same respect. Preferring to stay outside he began his quest. When it came time for me to be able to speak, he became very heated and began to argue. Then his grump little butt ran away to harass my neighbor. Why run???? Why knock on my door and cram your religion down my throat not letting my up for air and then treat me as if I were damned for all eternity.
What I do think is really funny, with out training them, my dogs sniff out every religion pusher carrying their NEW AND IMPROVED BIBLE (with some deleted scenes) and they chase them away. If they manage to grab hold of a pamphlet and tear it to shreds, I give them a treat.
Comments....and I apologise in advance if I offended you!!! This is not an article against Jehovah's Witnesses ...I respect all religions and all people of faith. I don't say I am right and others are wrong. I just dislike it when people come a knocking with their opinions but do not respect me enough to listen to mine.
