Polite way to ask a Jehovah's witness to stop coming?

For several months now a very nice JW girl has been coming to my house a couple times a month. Until now I've enjoyed learing about the JW religion, though I have no interest in converting. However, at this point I'm no longer interested. I feel I've gained enough insight into the religion for now and since I have no interest in converting, I feel like I'm wasting my-and her-time. I don't want to be rude or hurt her feelings, I really have enjoyed learning from her. I just don't feel like reading any more pamphlets about how my religion is evil lol.

So... how do I break it off with her without being rude?

  • The no soliciting doesn't work. I tried that and they told me they aren't "selling" anything, just trying to educate people. I myself called the local church where they were from and told them to please stop coming to my home.

  • Just tell her what you said in your post. I imagine they are used to a certain amount of rejection, so don't feel too bad.

  • Guess all the rude/ mean suggestions forgot the "polite" part.
    I think I'd practice a short sentence so it'd come to mind even if you have to repeat it.

  • ati 13, just tell her what you told us. I'm a JW and people tell us that and we dont come back. Some might, because some people can be so pushy, but most will oblige. You sound like a sweet person, i'm sure she wont take offense.
