Jahovas Witness just stopped by...
and it was great. I had been reading the posts here on how to debate xtians all morning and I was like a panther ready to pounce when they knocked on my door. I am so thankful for this site. Here were some of their arguements:
1. They didn't believe in heaven or hell but that Jesus will come at some point and resurrect the good people. (What? Doesn't this contradict what they just said about not being a heaven or hell?)
2. Free will is like the Grand Canyon or the ocean. There are ropes around the Grand Canyon and if you go past that you suffer the consequences.
3. I brought up abortion and they their faces turned purple then they tried to exit. But then I changed the subject to belief and faith. Betty said that we all have to tolerate other religions and chuckled then touched my arm. So I said that I don't believe we should respect faith/belief. Then I got the deer in the headlights look. I asked that if I told them that the chair was yellow (it's red) and that I believed it so, would she would respect that. She said that she wouldn't agree but she would respect what I believed. I then asked an incredulous "reallllly?"
They said they had a lot of houses to get to and asked if they could return to discuss more. I told her sure as long as she understood that I won't be a subscriber. It all ended on a friendly note with them commenting on how pretty my flowers were.
