"I tend to ignore them for my own safety reasons if out in public. If they bring it to my door it's another matter. Here's a novel way of dealing with that even in public. You approach the sign slowly and start reading. Then you smile and…"

"I ignore them, usually give them the death glare, but I never confront them. But I usually stay pissed off all day and ponder how anyone could be so stupid and worry on how many children are being brainwashed all the time. "

"I have no problem in ignoring them ... IF they stay out of my space.  Should they decide to invade my space and disturb my peace, they will shortly learn that they made a mistake ... one they won't want to repeat."

"Ignore them.  Any response by you will be seen by them as validation of their bullshit.   The one's that have come to my door don't stay long and have never returned. "

"I just ignore them because you can't reason with these people - trying to talk some sense into them is lost on them."

"Great responses, all. I believe I did intelligently by avoiding the situation. But as Loren stated, walk into my territory and it is on lol. Nothing is more immature than the way these people act so I do not blame you, booklover."

As I traversed the streets of downtown Dallas, I witnessed the very thing I only see in nightmares. A woman stood in the corner of the street, with a sign reading, "Kill the gays! God has no room for them in Heaven! Science is bullshit! Christianity is the only way. God will lead us all to salvation." I can never understand how a woman could blindly follow any religion, it degrades them. Men, on the other hand, have everything to gain. Though equally as ignorant.

About Me:
Hmm, there is much to tell and I am too lazy to write it all on here. First of all, I am an anti-theist. Second of all, I love metal music. Thirdly, I am a huge LOTR nerd. There, that is all I wish to write for the moment. I may add more later.
