I never mentioned anything of them being Christians. In fact, I said they were non-believers.

What kind of service? Were they part of a church, temple or organization? Did they tell you they were non-believers?

Oh, Church of Satan?

You said their "service." Was it a massage parlor service? Shoe-shine service? That thing where the barber puts a hot rag on your face while you lie back?

I may have misunderstood.

U/U? It sounds a bit odd behaviour.

You could call it a religious institution. I will not go on from there regarding who/what they are because I would rather not violate any forum rules.

I saw a video some teens took of one of them answering the door to talk to a Jehovah's Witness, while naked. And the man stayed there and talked to him!

Unless there's a swear word or "Hitler" in their name I can't imagine simply stating a religion's name would violate any forum rules.

Was it the Church of Hitler?

You said "non-believers." What do they not believe in? I don't believe in a lot of things. Was this someone who came to your door and said "Have you heard the good news? Unicorns aren't real" or something?

Why not just say what you're talking about instead of attempting to be be controversial and coy?

They were non-believers in Christianity -- that Jesus, who is God, died for our sins on the cross and paid for our salvation. They were knocking on doors. I see no difference between them and the atheists that prosletyze their message of hopelessness. You can say I'm being coy and controversial..but the point remains. They do not believe in Biblical Christianity, and they are going door-to-door to share their message.

There are no forum rules about identifying groups, organizations, churches, temples, or anyone else who comes to your door.

The Jehovah Witnesses came to my door about a month ago. Two days ago reps from the organization named Century Link came calling to share the good news of changing our cable provider. See? Easy Peasy.

No forum rules on that so you cannot violate them None. Zilch. No worries.

Which organization came to pay you a visit, Viz?
