Keep in mind that they are just kids who know nothing about the religion other than what they've been taught. They mean well in their ignorance.

Anyone is emotionally stunted if they care more about strangers who harass them than their own survival.

The missionaries don't need their victims to take care of them. That's the job of their church, their mormon friends, and their parents.

I think the point is that the teenage missionaries, to some extent, are victims as well.

That doesn't mean what they're doing is okay or should be accepted, but there has to be some way to be firm without further injuring the missionary--or worse--feeding a persecution complex that will cement their place in the morg.

Whenever I see or hear about a nasty exchange between a missionary and an exmormon, I think the missionary has evidence that not being Mormon makes a person angry and evil.

Sometimes it can't be helped. Lots of times. The lady missionaries were "sicced" on me after I left. They weren't going to stop until I showed them the door. They asked to pray with me and I told them no.

Especially the Mormon missionaries from Utah need to see that one can be exMormon and a whole and kind person.

Are they victims? Yes, they're victims who are still victimizing the innocent prey they stalk.

Our number one first responsibility is to ourselves, not to those who harass or lie to us.

The motives of the stalkers are not ours to own. The path to hell is paved with good intentions.

Our job is to recover, not to prop up TBM strangers who roam the streets.

If an exmo feels helping them promotes his or her recover, that's another matter.

Crazyhose doesn't feel that way.

Both are from Utah and hard core Mormons! Utah is the most unfriendly state unless you are Mormon! But they will never stop! They want you to be Mormon when they want!

Jehovah's witness are more skilled at debating and can never leave! Mormons are aggressive but cowards to!

I was visited by the missionaries many years ago, as described in other posts. Haven't had any contact since, but I see them around the neighborhood occasionally.
If and when they do show up, my plan is to invite them in if otherwise convenient, make them comfortable--they have enough troubles of their own, as I've learned well from this board--and then politely but firmly decline their religious message. I'll try to be more tactful than I was nearly 40 years ago. After that, the crystal ball becomes cloudy.
I also saw some JWs yesterday, but apparently they skipped us. Them, I would brush off as politely as possible, at the door.

Thank you, Crazyhorse, and Cheryl. I agree with you 100%:

"The missionaries don't need their victims to take care of them. That's the job of their church, their mormon friends, and their parents."

Not only are we victims, but our children are being stalked by Mormon missionaries, as future victims! Always remember that. If you feed them, and encourage them, they will have the energy to knock on one more door--and that might be the door of someone you love--and the missionaries will lie, and manipulate, and try to ruin the life of someone you care about, in order to get more money for LDS, Inc. It's a cult, a polygamous cult, a cult of hate.

Do not feed. No not make eye contact. Back away.

Remember the notorious Hi-fi killer? He was a "victim" of abuse when he was a child, and he used that to excuse himself of the murders he committed. Nevertheless, he committed those murders, and those three people are dead.

I can't get away from them; my wife keeps inviting them over for dinner. I often end up reading in the corner while the missionaries and my wife exchange testimonies.

My wife will occasionally pull me into the conversation to defend a straw man account of why I think Joseph Smith was a con man or the church is lying to its members. I'm still not sure whether her intent is to put me or the missionaries on the spot.

One missionary who has returned home has reached out to me on LinkedIn and is asking for my sources about Joseph Smith and the church. I guess I made an impression on at least one missionary.

I can't stand ANYONE who goes door-to-door selling ANYTHING. It's ridiculous that people walk around neighborhoods to hawk their wares. Missionaries are a pain in the butt, along with young foreigners selling magazine prescriptions, companies selling lawn services, kids fundraising for their school, etc.

I see them on a regular basis as there is a missionary apartment in the neighborhood. Usually, we leave each other alone, although I do feel sorry for them as they really should be in their first year of college instead of pushing their cult on others.
