perhaps she could have told them to go away and closed the door? probably a tad safer than letting random people in to have a chat...

I guess that would depend on where you live. There are still some parts of America, such as small towns and rural areas where people don't feel the need to lock their doors. I live in a county neighboring Baltimore City, Md. It wasn't all to long ago. We felt the same way. But, too much criminal activity enjoys giving the Baltimore City Police Department a good chase and try to hide out in our neighborhoods. It's kind of funny though. We'll come out side and tell the police exactly which way they ran.

Then, they get arrested!

Back to topic. Please, don't be afraid of diversity. Embrace it. We are not so different. We have the same worries, hopes and dreams. As my older than dirt generation would say. "We're all in the same boat."

That's what I would've preferred she do, but for some reason she just didn't. Like I said, they were nice guys, kinda soft-spoken and quiet (one never spoke, the other did all the yapping). Just not into their message.

I understand. They have showed up at my door too. I would listen. Because I didn't want to be impolite. My Irish Granny raised me to have good manners.

So if I ever decide to rob both of you via a home invasion, I'll just show up at your door with a couple of my quiet, soft spoken friends, take advantage of your desire not to be impolite, and then rob you blind.

But that's neither here nor there.

On topic: Muslims are people, too.

Not my house, love. I have a tire iron right where. I can get to it.

It's not about politeness, it's about valuing your own time. I'm not going to go work for 14 hours and then have to listen to a Mormon or a Jehovah's Witness or whoever blather on about salvation and shove some poorly written magazines into my hands when I could be lying on my couch in peace.

The Jehovah's Witnesses finally stopped coming by.

I'm polite and say "no thank you, I'm an Athiest."

My wife lets them have it with a curse-laden diatribe that comes from 2000 years of religious tension, religious female repression and a dose of ex-Catholic school girl for good measure. I didn't hear all of it last time, but it ended with something like, "and don't ring my fucking doorbell at 9 AM on a Sunday morning!!!"

My wife's grandfather invites them in to his house and lectures them on complete Christian religious history until they are asking to leave and questioning their own beliefs. (He's a Freemason.)

You win! I can't out run a bullet. But, my Ninja trowing star will get you in the back of the head.


Seriously. I don't invite anyone into my house that I don't know. Including church recruiters. I have my beliefs, you have yours. Let's keep it that way.

Sure. But common sense is not a belief.

Anyway, we're. Way off topic.

True, we are way off topic.

Anyway, I respect other beliefs. Common sense included.
