GUEST,Volgadon BS: Religious Canvassers (136* d) RE: BS: Religious Canvassers 28 Oct 08

"1. So you believe in a god that thinks there are some sins that just should never be forgoven. Fine - You stick to your god and I'll stick to mine:-)"

Was I saying you shouldn't? What this started from was me asking why it made me worse to ask someone if they wanted to hear.
Stick to your god, that's fine by me, it's between you and him after all.

"2. You only baptise those who's kin ask them do you? Well, what about the holocaust victims that you have baptised against the wishes of both their families and their faith? (I am going to keep this article handy.)"

That was wrong, it has been stopped. I am half-Jewish, BTW, and the entire family remaining in Europe was wiped out, so I do understand why carrying out that ordinance without consent upset those families.

"As to 'it's not my problem'. Well, your religion, your choice to stay with them, your problem. Like I said before I disagreed with lots of things in the organised religions I tried so I voted with my feet. If enough people do it the leaders of that particular church will get the picture."

So, because someone ignored your sign and knocked on your door I should leave and break promises I have made to my God? That isn't just slightly arrogant and presumptive on your part? Or if you ment baptism for the dead, if you ever have a relative or descendent who converts, should I leave because they submitted names from their family? That is YOUR family affair, not mine.

"3. There is already sign on my door that says quite categoricaly NO SALESMEN, HAWKERS OR CANVASSERS. I am going to ask by what right to they chose to ignore my wishes."

Go ahead, ask THEM, not me. I agree with you, signs should not be ignored.
