Tell them you are busy. You can do that without being rude to them. Most people will understand.

You can in fact view this as an opportunity to learn to be more assertive, so that you can stop being dysfunctional. Letting people take you hostage for hours because you are too submissive to let them know you aren't interested shows that you have some assets of your personality which are preventing you from interacting with people in a healthy manner.

Stand up to them, tell them "thank you very much for your time but I'm happy with my faith right now" and if they continue to persist it is them being rude to you, not the other way around. You're well within the scope of reasonable behaviour if you politely close the door on them at this point.

Granted - really really small caliber ammunition - but ammunition still.

Go for it. Just remember two things

1. They have the right to shut their doors on you - just like you have the right to shut your door on them

2. Don't complain when some of them attend the meeting.

I'll tell you what's wrong, being harassed by these nuts at work. During breaks and over the summers I work as a cashier at a supermarket. I have been nailed by at least 3 or 4 Jehovahs/Mormons, and 2 Christian Scientists. The latter is really bad. THAT is wrong. If they come to your hous just ask them politely to get off of your property. But behind the register... well I can't exactly go anywhere.

Thats why most businesses are smart enough to put up no soliciting signs or stickers near the door.

At my house I just ask em to leave, its kind of annoying, but at my friends house it becomes a hilarious show! He is 17 and living with his grandma, who is a devout catholic. The Jehovas witnesses come to her door and they always get into a huge arguement about whos going to hell... lol! I wish i could see one of those arguements, i bet its hilarious.

I was boning my woman when they came around. I answered the door in a towel, my woman called "Who is it?" from my room, the lady took off.
