    • I would ask for one, but just not answering the door works pretty well. I did have a couple of LDS missionaries turn up while I was in the middle of moving once, and they actually offered to help. Too bad I was loading up heavy furniture, and both of them together would barely be as big as I am. (I’m on the big side of average, but hardly huge.) So, maybe send bigger Mormons next time?

  1. I don’t need a Blog, I just explain to the Evangelical Snake Oil Merchants just how Bleak & Pointless their Lives are if they must use Fables to Mask their Fear of Death, & must share their “Faith” in order to feel secure in their “Beliefs”, a strategy that often gets me marked as a Heartless B-Word.

    • It’s actually more fun to talk at them from the perspective of a different branch of their own faith (speaking as a Catholic, when the door-to-door Christian branches are Mormonism and Jehovah’s Witnesses).

      Had a deacon once suggest a great game, wherein you engage the ones that take (some parts of) the bible literally directly, and point out “So, if the Bible says 142,000 people will be saved,” (I may have the number wrong by a thousand or so) “And there are thousands upon thousands of Jehovah’s Witnesses…where does that put you in the order?”

      I’ve pulled that trick and the “explain that ‘Jehovah’ is a misspelling of Yahweh’ one several times. Thing is, if the people at your door can’t take those points, roll with them and continue their work (particularly from something as amateur-hour as accusing someone’s beliefs of being false because their religion demands they evangelize) then they probably should have waited before engaging in that part of their religion to begin with.

  2. Sidestepping the flames a bit here…

    I must say that I love how many strips end with the phrase, “…Wait, what?” Story of my life.

  3. Judging by the description, I think it’s probably spelled sometthing like blawgg.

    I find myself wishing this wasn’t a throwaway joke, the blawgg could have been an interesting character.

  4. I’ve never had a problem with door-to-door evangelists but I do want one of those blogs, even if I could probably mess with such evangelists on my own.

    • They were likely quoting Matthew 7:6 from the Bible: “Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast. ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them. under their feet, and turn again and rend you.”
