Seriously had the JH round this morning and just now the Catholics - since when did the bloody Catholics start door knocking?

Each time setting next doors dog off barking for HOURS because the go out and leave the poor thing all day.

ARGH do those signs work and deter the determined?!

I had the Legion of Mary ladies once coming over to pray with me.
I respectfully declined and wondered since when Catholics became obnoxious door callers, a place which is normally reserved for Jehova Witnesses and Mormons.

YABU - sounds like your real issue is with next door and their dog!

We get the Mormons too wtf is going on?! Mormons aren't so bad they are normally clean cut good looking young men who have give out home baked goods smile

The Catholics are a new one and have given me a Miraculous Medal and a leaflet about apparition - actually quite intrusive to be questioned about your religious beliefs on the doorstep on a sunny Friday afternoon.

Must be the nice weather. I had two ladies knock his morning and say they were going to read a Bible passage to me.

Let's just say I politely declined...

Perhaps they're doing the rounds after Mondays attack? I personally don't have a problem with it, just kindly decline their offer of a chat.

I do mind actually esp as I was expecting a parcel and was out in the garden putting the washing line up and ran to the front door thinking it was my parcel!

You got a medal for answering your door?! That's unfair. All I've ever had is the JWs with a grotty pamphlet (and repeated visits because I was too polite). envy wink

Yes - it's not the best quality to be perfectly honest grin

I wrote a thread on this a little while ago about me hiding from them haha

I can't help wondering if our local rather attractive religious door knocker will be around soon. Gosh it's a hot day.

Are the Mormons always good looking young men? I remember last time they called it took me a couple of minutes to take in what they were saying because I was so taken aback by the 3 clean cut, hunky young men knocking on my door blush

I'll confess I'm religious and I don't like people door knocking me so I'm dead against any suggestion of our church doing it. Leaflet through the door about interesting thing (and I mean interesting to the general public) fair enough, but more than that - nope! I just don't get why people don't get this - it's utterly counterproductive.

Never heard of Catholics doing that - sure they were who they said they were?

Hate any unsolicited door knockers - religious ones included

I think the Mormons produce some very lovely looking people due to the incredibly clean living.

I have a friend who is a Mormon and she had a 13lb baby shock
