Unwanted visitors

Dear Editor,

It’s Thanksgiving day and I just got out of the shower when to my shock and irritation, a couple comes driving up to our home and with their Bibles in hand, preach to my dad about their beliefs and religion.

My parents live in the country on 20 acres and you have to drive down a road to get to their property, so I was surprised they could even find the house, on Thanksgiving day no less!

I’m sorry, but I have had enough. For over 20 years I have shown nothing but courtesy and respect for all religions/spirituality and I will continue to do so, but it is now time that these people have got to return the favor.

Please do not come to my home unannounced and take my precious time with family etc. to discuss your beliefs. If you see a sign that says No Soliciting, this means you. If someone tells you they are not interested in your religion please respect that and leave.

I thought of something that would work far better than going door to door.

There should be a change altogether, as religion should not be sold door to door like Avon (even they have a website and modern advertisement).

Bottom line, it is just bad manners to show up at someone’s home unannounced (especially in these days and times when we all need to protect our families/properties more than ever.

Thank you,

Abigail Burnett
