We all know about those Jehovah's witness that come uninvited to knock on your door to tell you about their faith, right? we all find it annoying as hell don't we? well, although I too find it annoying, I have to give credit where credit is due, it takes a lot of commitment and personal passion to walk the miles and miles in the rain or snow to go knocking door to door, to spread their message, often getting the doors slamed in their faces, their message most of the time is not welcomed......I have great respect for these people for doing what they think should be done, regardless of me not agreeing with it, how about you?

I respect them as people, but not for their beliefs, any more than I respect terrorists for theirs. Now, be careful in your interpretation of what I wrote. That does not mean that I equate JWs with terrorists. It simply means that I don't find any merit in their faith, any more than I do the faith that causes terrorists to give up their lives in expectation of rewards after death. In fact, I see nothing virtuous in faith, especially that which defies logic. Is that insulting? I hope not, because I'm being honest. We've had some interesting discussions when they've come to my door. I'm polite and engaging with them. Still, I don't respect what they're doing. I think it's silly - but I can still respect the person and be kind to them, even while I debate with them.
