Of course, there are some religions that preach hatred and violence against the west and all that, but nobody seems to knock them here, just the easy targets. Bandwagon and jumping comes to mind. The ones i have known are thoroughly decent people.

I've always been an aethist and have always respected other peoples religious beliefs, but they ain't for me. So I don't appreciate the door banging

I do however try and live my life with a degree of consideration for others, so the other day I was driving through Southampton along a very busy intersection and there was a Blind guy trying to cross the road, and it wasn't happening. So I pulled my truck across the two lanes blocking the traffic, nipped out and helped him across the road.

Now my fellow motorists were not impressed by this at all, so there was a lot of beeping and engine revving, which pissed me off. So I'm guiding the guy with one hand and giving people the finger with the other.

We get to the other side and I'm rushing to get back to the truck and unblock the traffic, and he whips out a copy of the Watchtower and starts to pitch me.

Classic It cheered me up no end. still does

I also find I have to agree with Vince, if only they'd stop the door banging it's be OK.

I thought we weren't supposed to do religion or politics here

Vince,

I think what everyone can't do with is having it rammed down your throat and with all due respect that is what "most" JW will do.
Most people here have had them on the door step and hell they don't want to take no for an answer.

You don't get many fundamentalists door stepping you or do you?
I think that is why people will "have a go" about the JW's.

If it was HMS on the radio then fair play to him, have known him for many years and this side has never come up.

Each to their own, I guess, until it effects you.
