I started selling Avon to earn extra money and it has helped me a lot. These 2 girls at my hubby's work found out about it and basically said it was gross and they were appalled about it and said it was evil. These two girls are Mormons, I HAVE NOTHING AGAINST MORMONS OR ANY OTHER RELIGION, but they really made me feel bad by acting this way. First of all I like selling Avon, they are a company that is highly involved in helping women, and the fight against breast cancer and domestic violence. Also I have never even tried selling them anything, I sell to one of my friends that works there and when I took her her stuff and some new books, this is when these girls acted this way. I have no idea how I should have reacted I was shocked that they acted this way and I didn't want to cause a scene. What are your thoughts on this?

I would have just said that's your opinion and you are entitled to it and left it at that.

How very christian of them. Ignore people like that. Extremist views are like a horse wearing blinders. they don't see the bigger picture. Everyone has the right to their opinion, just note that theirs is one of extremes and move forward. Their intolerance is quite ugly and lots of people notice it I'm sure. What a poor way to witness for your religion.
