Don't reply to any more.

Not replying to subsequent ones is not uncharitable. The other party just needs to learn that a "no" means a "no". Now, on the other hand, when the Jehovah Witnesses come to my door, although I really want to tell them no, I instead invite them in saying: "Well, welcome folks, you've come at a good time! I was just going to start praying the Rosary. Please join me!!! We can talk about your stuff, after that." Guess what, they NEVER come back
John thanks~ I keep my rosary handy by my front door~ I'll try that the next time the JWs attack! rosary

I've only gradiated 6th grad so I isn't too smartz,,but doesn't laughter have a place in all this human stuff.....????

If I want sadness continually,,I'll go to the Dentist and ask for the """"EXTRACTION Special"" every week...

I want to laugh and share laughter,,,,that is Charity when you can humble yourself to optimize funny and laughable experiences,,,better when shared with a Sweetbesart and then you have two comedians spreading joy and laughter,,and this gives a chance to MINISTER....

Boy,,I have a lot to learn...I need to take more depressed,,sadness classes.....I bet Jesus belly laughed with his friends...He was human and it is suppossed to be human to laugh and spread laughter...

Back to regular Hum Drum programming......and all that analytical non emotional philosophy....

Marge, it's not about the person... it's a decision.

I am serious, it worked with every single JW couple or Mormon missionaries that showed up. The same ones never came back after that. But just in case they would take me up on it, I am also ready with the techniques to discuss our faith with them after the Rosary. That prep was a waste of time, so far.

I'm not sure I understand this comment, John.

Certainly, one person has made a decision and the other appears to not accept/respect that decision.

My point is, too many folks here "shoot from the hip" when making their decisions. They reject overtures without ever giving the stranger a fair hearing.

Seriously, unless a person's initial messages are grossly impolite, why would you immediately tell him/her "No"?
