I can assure you that your fears have kept me from ever going to an LDS venue.


Well, you have been to TNA, I believe

Steve, yes I remember making the comment about being apprehensive about going there. I was surprised how friendly everything was. Shamefully I only live 3 or 4 miles away, but it takes an hour to get there by bus and haven't been back.

Hi Martin

Well, if you saw any friendly Americans in blue shirts helping people left, right and centre there, they were the religious maniacs you were worried about  :)

I have found a friendly polite way to deal to the door knockers, (usually either LDS or Jehovah's Witnesses.  I simply smile and say "Thank you for calling - I am a Christian - I realise and respect that you have your values and beliefs, and I thank you for respecting mine, you have a good day"!

This usually brings a smile from them, and a "God Bless".  In particular, the friendly LDS people, who I think must have me on a "Do Not Visit" list,  as when they're in my street, they no longer call!

JW's?  They still call, but get my usual response!
