I have no problem with anyone who refrains from forcing their beliefs upon me. Once people start pushing I then have a problem.

Somebody's beliefs are their own. It doesn't affect me at all, so I don't care. But, like you said, if they start to force it on me, then I start pusing back.
Just like telemarketers

I may prefer the Mormons trying to baptize me over a telemarketer. While I am not atheist, I do my best not to be judgy. I try not to be rude as well, but I have had some really test me in that department.

They have been really bad since we bought a house. If they call my cell phone I add them to my contacts and set a custom ringtone of "silent". That way I never even hear them calling.

These days too it seems people go for unusual spellings of otherwise simple James. For the life of me I do not understand why.

Just like sone people have common names that they slightly change the pronunciation of just to be different.
I really shouldn't talk, though, neither of my kids have common names.
Then again, my name didn't become common until after I was born. And of course, it's one of those that people keep jacking with the spelling

The whole Aiden or something that rhymes with it bugs me like no other.
I've heard practically every letter used at the beginning of Aiden to make is sound like something original. It's not original, it's the same name with an extra letter. There was even a kid at my kids' old school named Zayden. Gimme a friggin break. The parents were total douche nozzles too, probably why they did that

No one ever gets my name right. I have to spell the first an last names for them and even still they will butcher my last name.

I get the "This is the IRS and your social security number has been put on hold, we have a warrant for your arrest if you do not call..." scam calls. Saddest part is you know there are people who fall for this crap.

It's very sad and that's why they keep doing it.
Funny coincidence; if I was a girl my name would have been Sarah-with an H
You'd be surprised how many different ways people F up my name. And these days it's a very common first name and last name.
I've heard so many variations it's unbelievable. A couple I've heard many times, but sometimes somebody comes up with something so out of left field, the only way I can think they came up with it was they heard one letter and the number of sylables

At least they do that much. I may get a call from the doctors office or any place really that would be calling legitimately. They NEVER introduce themselves. They go straight to "Hey is this Sarah?" I always give them an earful. Places USED to introduce themselves. Now they don't bother.

I don't usually get those...then again, I generally answer the phone "This is 'Craven' "
Mostly a hold over from when I used to be a manager. Telemarketers were even worse then when I always had to answer.
A lot of the ones I know are scams that get sent to voice mail lately say something like "I have to talk to you about something important regarding your student loan..."
The student loan that I've never had....funny, they never say what they think my name is in the message

One TM called and I told them I got no money, using my “Deliverance redneck voice”. They said I could finance it. I told them the bankruptcy judge said I had to cut up all those credit cards or he’d make me pay all my old bills back. He asked me when I filed bankruptcy as I heard papers rustling over the line. He said he had no record of my filing. So I told him I did it last Monday. The phone went dead and that TM never called again.

The whole "I have no record" thing on his end is pretty dumb anyway. I tell TMs all the time that whover they're buying their leads from are a waste of money. Especially the ones trying to get me to refinance a loan on a house that we refied and later sold. Or the senior benefits people that call me...I may be old, but I'm not that old yet

Not funny. I myself am a Latter Day Saint. And we are now called members of the church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. I invite you to catch general conference on byu tv this fall and to listen with your whole heart. Invite the missionaries into your home. Listen to them.

I have spent quite a great deal of time talking to the Mormon missionaries who circulate. Because I figured I didn't know a thing really about the Mormon faith and the only way to know is to talk to them. So I did. And they may as well have become my stalkers. They actually tried to FORCE me into baptism. And when I went to the web site to request that they not come by anymore they came to my home and CONFRONTED me. But it cannot be said that I did not take the time to listen in the first place.
That aside, yes it is funny. Because when we see y'all coming we know better than to engage, and for the reasons that I mentioned. If you are of the Mormon faith that is fine and well for you. No one thinks less of you for it.

And that "whole heart" thing is a load of crap. They are trained to insist that people are not "listening with their whole heart" if they do not agree with the Mormon faith. It is this bullying of people which turns people off. You cannot reasonably expect to force your faith on someone and expect them to be a happy recipient.

I understand that. Some of our missionaries can be a little weird. You don't have to join if you don't want to. But I have seen hate speeches about our church. Back in the time of the Mormon battalion, in Jackson county, Missouri, the governor of Missouri made it legal to kill members of our church. We all know history repeats itself, and I just want to keep it from happening again. Yes, those missionaries are a little weird, but you could at least try to listen to them. They are only allowed to call home once a week. And they are most likely far from home. They also have doors slammed in Their faces in heatwaves, snow, rain, hail, and sleet. You do not have to if you do not want to. I just want to keep this Mormon discrimination and anti Mormonism from happening again.

You may have missed the part where i said I spent a great deal of time with these missionaries. At any rate, I disagree with hate speeches. I think people should avoid doing that sort of thing.

The rotation went so that at all times you had one familiar missionary. So the two who would come, let's say Elder A and Elder B. A few weeks in Elder A would move on to the next place and Elder B would remain. A few weeks after that Elder B would leave and the new Elder A would now be known. See what I mean? They had a good system in that respect.

Not sure if they do that everywhere. They did it in South Carolina at the very least. I believe they did it to prevent people from being left with total strangers when the new Elders came in.

Speak for yourself. Because there a lot out there who do force it. The Mormon missionaries tried to force me into a Baptism in their church. When I called and asked that they no longer come to my home they showed up on my doorstep CONFRONTING me and refused to stop coming by. So yeah YOU may not force it, but you can't speak for all of you.

What it boils down to is, we ALL have a right to our opinion and you do not get to police others and limit what opinions get to be spoken. Anyone can speak their mind and anyone who does not like it can keep moving.

I'm sorry you (and some commenters) had bad experiences. I was a missionary for the church myself. Although I made mistakes, I did try to respect other's time and beliefs (and taught other missionaries to do the same). Experiences like yours do happen, but please know that they're an exception to how the church tries to share its beliefs via missionaries. I hope you get a better experience soon :)

I do not speak with them anymore. I did honestly listen and talk with them. These last ones especially were extremely aggressive and pushy. When they got to the 6 week mark in which they moved on and another would take their place it was the same type of pushy and aggressive behavior. At any rate, I am not rude when they come. I let them know we already belong to a church which we love. I feel that speaking with them when I have no intentions of converting is a waste of their time.

I have respect for the fact that these people are out here in the heat, rain, sleet and snow doing what they do. Probably getting doors slammed in their faces, and getting told where to go etc.. It takes a lot to do that. Especially in this time of people being offended at everything. This is also very dangerous as there are so many crazies out there to worry about. The least anyone could do is have a little consideration. :)

Some people have a sense of humor. Some do not. If you can't laugh at the fact that some people really do hide and remain silent until y'all leave then you have issues. Would you prefer getting told where to go and have a door slammed in your face? The same can be said of Jehovah's Witness visitors, or door-to-door sales people. If you are out knocking on people's doors or stopping people on the way into the grocery store you can expect that some people will want to avoid you.
