The notorious Jehovah's Witnesses came looking for me again today.

Honestly. These people want me bad. I mean, three visits! I don't know whether to feel special that they're putting all this vain energy into trying to evangelize me or not. Either way, mum told them nicely that I was Catholic and probably not looking for another Christian sect to join at the moment.

And if there are any silly missionaries reading this right now, contact me when the end times begin and we can talk shop then. ;p

Ah - saying you're Catholic is like waving a red flag in front of a bull.

My boy makes sport of JWs. He like to read up on their beliefs on the internet, so that he can pre-empt their spiel and keep diverting it in a frustrating manner. They usually only come by once or twice - the last ones lied about a fictitious bus they had to catch to get away! =)

I may be wrong, but I think it's the JWs that believe that just 144,000 souls will be brought up in the rapture? Surely there are more than 144,000 JWs in the world. ;)

I'm curious about what you say when you mean that. I've never actually had to confront a missionary and say that I'm Catholic....is it saying I'm Catholic that tends to elicit a greater reaction than, say, if I was to say I was Anglican?

Any time I've simply said "no thank you" to a JW, they've been rather accepting of it. Any time I've said, "no thank you, I'm Catholic", I've found I seem to become a challenge.

When I was living in Toowoomba, a JW knocked on my door and I politely turned him away by saying I was Catholic. The next week, he was on my doorstep again - "I brought a friend along today. This is Jan - she used to be Catholic!"

...and so on. *grin*

Catholics are "worse" than other non-JWs because we have a perversion of the truth (according to the JWs, anyway), where atheists or agnostics are just ignorant - or so it seems by their methodology. (I don't know if you get a similar reaction if you say you're another kind of Christian, or if it's just specific to Catholics).

Maybe it's your perfume? ;3

Hee, maybe I should start wearing a fragrance that doesn't scream 'convert me!'. ;)
