CarrieBeary77-Thanks for posting. I am a JW too (hi, sista!
I was thinking that mothering mama's are usually very aware of world conditions and empathetic to peoples feelings.They
are upset with injustice, and tolerant and loving towards all types of people. Wittnesses that visit them are very grateful to meet such people. (Sadly, many people aren't). They may not realize that you don't want them to return because you've had a nice chat and have similiar viewpoints on many things. Also, wittnesses enjoy talking to people of all religions and atheists and agnostics. Learning others' viewpoints helps you to understand them. The Bible teaches preaching, not harrassment or debating. Jesus didn't do it and neither should we. Ask to be put on the do not call list if you don't want anyone to return.
Unfortunately, nobody is perfect and I have witnessed some long-winded one sided conversations because the person I was with didn't realize soon enough that the householder was not interested and too polite to say so. It isn't done intentionally and isn't meant to be rude, although it may seem so.
Ironically, I don't open my door to anyone. Not because I don't want to speak to people, but because I am alone all day with 3 under 3 and its too scary. I totally understand when people don't open their door to me and I understand if they are grumpy when I come because I am arriving unexpectedly. I just apologize and leave.
It is hard to go door to door and talk about RELIGION. I am not there to show disrespect for your religion or beliefs. I am there because the Bible says this is what I should do. Sometimes knowing someones motives makes it easier to understand them.
P.S. The meat people even call back after I tell them we are vegetarian
