A solicitor is a salesman. Jehovah's Witnesses aren't out selling anything. So "No Soliciting" in no way applies to their Christian ministry. Those getting annoyed at them thinking they should mind that are the ones in error out of their own ignorance.

Their purpose is not to solicit anything. They go to homes to share Bible Scriptures and the offer of a home Bible Study. People are free to accept or refuse, whatever they choose to do. That has to do with religious Freedom, not soliciting anything.

Nomi, who lies that the restrictive rules of the cult she was born into have never been hard for HER, refuses to obey them once again.
She herself refused to go door banging, repeating one excuse after the other.
Notice her words "they", they those dimwitted JWs who did not figure out like her how to skirt around the restrictive laws of the evil governing demons
Door banging is beneath the pretty Nomi, she has nails, hair and clothes to attend to.
Wow, if she sleeps with and marries only rich, ugly "worldly" dudes, who she is now the subject of, she "can't" do anything he does not approve of.
You fool nobody Nomi, not even yourself.

Okay you are either in a jail, psych ward, or a library because you're homeless. You have awful grammar, you make no sense, and you type like a 4 year old autistic epileptic. Here is my doctor advice: if you are not committed, you should be... Otherwise, go play in traffic.

Jehovahs witnesses do not have to comply with orders to check in with police telling them what neighborhood they will be going or asking the police for permission to go door to door .

Good gravey. The Jehovahs are gonna eat your baby! Just answer the door like a good neighbor and tell them politely you're not interested. If they don't take the hint slam the door.

Back when I was was young all the mothers would call each other when the JWs showed up, close the doors draw the drapes and pretend not to be home :)

Btw, the No Soliciting sign does not apply. Post a No Trespassing sign...

The 'J Witness' was on my street the other day. I was just pulling into my drive when they were getting out of their car. So I rushed into the house after I put the car in the garage, knowing that they all saw me go into the house, and shut the door. About 10 minutes later, they were at the side door knocking and knocking. The knocking apparently bothered my dogs so they started barking in their baritone barks! lol! The J/W took off after they heard the barking.

I just don't understand how these people come to the same houses over and over again trying to preach their cult religion on us. We tell them all the time we're not interested so what do they do? Knock on the same doors a few weeks later. Why don't they go and keep knocking on Muslims' doors to try to convert them? lol!

Jehovah's Witnesses are not solicitors. We are ministers, therefore, when we see the sign, No Soliciting, we disregard because, as I've mentioned, we are ministers. We have established ourselves as such via the legal system. We have gone to the supreme court to defend our freedom of religion. The person who said that a no trespassing sign would be better is right. We do not approach homes that are clearly maked, No Trespassing.

There isn't a cult on earth that teaches Jesus' truths--The JW religion is the only one I have ever seen that actually teaches Jesus; truths--why is that? Because in reality its all the rest of the false Christian religions that are the true cults. Being taught by blind guides that do not know God or his son, but are great at tickling ears with lies like--you are saved or born again. Its you who are fooling yourself.

I have thanks. I listened to Jesus--here is a very important teaching from Jesus, so important he taught these two things must come first in ones everyday life. And his teachers make sure its in the flocks hearts to do these two things.

Therefore, keep on seeking first the kingdom and his ( Jehovah) righteousness and all these other things will be added ( sustenance, covering, spirituality)

The JW teachers listened to Jesus as well.

And if a JW doesn't have sufficient sustenance or covering, it's "obviously" because they aren't devoting sufficient time studying Watchtower publications, attending Watchtower meetings and distributing Watchtower publications.

It's a great scam for the publishing company...not so great for the believers.

LOL!!
The Jehovah's witness cult does not follow Jesus Christ at all, and they mock Christianity.
Tickle ears??
The cult leaders of the Jehovah's Witness cult promise followers a fairyland where only Jehovah's Witnesses are allowed IF they sell enough Watchtowers and can prove they spend at least 10 hours a month doing so.

Gee, don't seem to recall Jesus Christ EVER mentioning that.

Snap!

JW,s don't sell watchtowers, and time out of ones heart is what counts not hours on a paper-- how can someone who thinks they know JW,s be wrong about everything like you are? Why would one even talk about something when they prove in their words they do not have a clue? Jesus made his followers-- fishers of men--the JW,s listened. Anyone who lives to do Gods will will be allowed to enter his kingdom so you are wrong on that statement as well.

That's why most of the time the doors keep closed or closed upon when JW's are doing their preaching...!
