afraid of mormons

Hatred is so negative. Instead, I accept my self, and my own values. For example, one of my own "missions" in life, as a mother, is to protect my children. I also value integrity, so I avoid liars. I think lies are harmful. I believe in obeying the laws of the land, and that includes respecting other's human rights, their right of privacy, their right to keep their marriage and family together, their right to raise their children as they see fit. All of this is carried out in the parameters of basic human rights laws--that people should not harm each other.
I think children need to know the Truth. Otherwise, how can they deal with life? I don't want them to be raised to trust the wrong people. I don't want them to believe lies, just because someone conned and manipulated them. I married a con-man, who was just after my money, and he beat me. That belief in a returned missionary-as-representative-of-God, almost cost me my life. Children should not "respect" people, just because they are aggressive and demand respect. They should not trust someone because they are smiling and offering candy or "help" or salvation, etc. This is how pedophiles work.
That said, in order to protect my children and grandchildren, and to protect myself (and my money) I will keep Mormon missionaries out of my life.
I know their agenda. It makes NO difference who is hawking the lies and scamming for money--a teen-ager, a "nice" person, someone who has been abused, someone under pressure from the cult, a male or female, an old couple, someone people love or hate. It makes NO difference how well the missionary understands his message, if at all, or if he knows he's selling a scam. It makes NO difference to me.
All I know, is that the lying, harassment, and trespassing must STOP!
I would never hurt anyone, but I would never give missionaries a meal or or money or encouragement and send them on their merry way, ready to hit YOUR house next, or hit on your children, next.
I appreciate anyone who tries to discourage the missionaries. My loved ones and I thank you!
