    • I am annoyed by the Sunday afternoon door-to-door evangelizing by christian pairs of ladies, knocking on doors and refusing to respond until the residents come to open the door.  How should I go about to ban or complaint against such public nuisance?

    • design and put up a no evangelizing sign on your door front. when they see this, they will leave you alone.

      if you want, you can complain to their church? if not complain to your RC or MP, or town council.

    • I believe there are restrictions they should observe.   If I am you I would give them a piece of my mind.   

      If you want to complain to the authority, try finding out from Home Affairs ministry or ISD if they are in charge.

      to help get more mindless goons to go church to give tithes..................

       

      believing in their wishful thinking of an eternal life in heaven...............

    • They are doing a kind deed and we should thank them instead of complaining about them. They are saving you from hell.

    • Tell them your religion. Whatever it is.

      And if they don't leave immediately, you have a case against them.

      They can evangalize, in fact it is their duty to evangalize, but not to people of other faiths.

      I hope people of other faiths can be open-minded and tolerant about this. Why not stop and listen to those Christians preaching first and then decide for yourself?

    • Religion is a sensitive issue. It best to have a blanket rule of non-interfearance.

      You don't preach to me, I don't preach to you, is better than I preach to you, you preach to me.

      what is there to listen? I dun believe in god, not that it exists anyway. I am not going to hell when I die.

      Why dun u listen to me and then decide for yourself that god was invented by men. god only exists in bible, the way superman exists in DC comics and movies.

      there there there. I have heard of this a million of times and there you go again.

      that is why so many people of other faiths are so put off by your religion. how about I tell you this, I am asking you to accept my religion, cos you are going to hell if you dun icon_cool.gif

      Prove to us that all christians don't go to hell then come and tell us save us from hell.

      don't be so dumb and insensitive to others.   You christians deserved to be screwed! 

      If people are not interested then stop imposing your christian teaching on them.      You know there is something called respect.

      They resort to all nuisance to get their gospel preached.     preaching who don;t know, few , rarely living up to what they preach.

      Besides, this is a brainwashing religion.

    • Anyone who created the law, implemented it and enforcing them has to be super-courteous, otherwise they are enforcing it on others instead of themselves, and not being loyal and responsible people.

      using fear does not work in this day and age pal, wake up. insurance is also instilling fear so that people worry and sign up insurance with them.

      so if I dun fear going to hell, what is next you are preaching me?  this tactic is outdated already, obsolete.

    • spreading the gospel is part of christianity.

      friday prayers is part of islam.

      i doubt the law can interfere.

      i believe they dont come to your doorstep every week do they?

      so bear with it.

    • no need to talk much to them. tell them you aint interested and slam dunk the door.

      I remembered many years ago, an evangelist walked in the same direction as me in the walkpath. he asked me if I am interested in going to his church, I told him in no uncertain terms, no assertively. he got my message and walked away from me.

      I met one lady yesterday who were asking for direction and I helped. But she then try to sell her religion and I'm flabbergasted. I said no and she followed along.

      Old girl stopped her saying if she stick to me she was going to whack the daylight out of her. Nobody touches her man.
