If they come every week at roughly the same time, why not prepare for them?

Answer the door looking like the front man for Ghost:



(BTW, I do like their CD, and it cracks me up that Dave Grohl is involved with them.)

I've tried different things that never worked... (1) we're of Jewish Faith. (2) we're atheists. (3) our household members practice the Wiccan faith. Saying that, only encourages them to want to show me the errors of my ways and listen to them.

So...... now i tell them if they will come to my church next Sunday, i will most certainly listen to their interpretation of biblical text. They usually leave within 30 seconds!

Tell them that you are a Pastafarian and let them figure out what that means.

Doorbell rings, and you look first before opening the door...and you see that it's a crop of god-botherers. Then remove your clothing.

Answer the door.

I doubt you'll be bothered again. There seems to be a network of them who will get the word out not to go near your house.

Do you have any friends with big dogs? Like, Rottweilers? You could always answer your door--and really, look every inch the maleficent being--and tell them if they don't get the effing eff of your private property, you will unleash the hounds of hell.

Another option is to put some lidocaine on your doorbell or knocker. Cayenne if you feel like really being obnoxious.

Or just answer your door in a g-string.

Better yet, have a friend there to get it on camera and put it on YouTube.

BTW, have you spoken to the police about this? If these jackarses do this every week, it's harassment and disturbing the peace.
