If a apartment comples or community has 'no soliciting' signs posted, shouldn't religions abide by these rules as well?

They're selling something, their religion.

Absolutely, if you are knocking on the doors of people you don't know to talk about your religion that is not different then bothering them trying to sell stuff.

I have two of those, one on the fence coming up to the door and one on the doorjam.

I think it just motivates them to irritate me more..like I'm some sort of challenge.

I agree. It's no different than someone trying to sell tupperware.

I'm much happier to see the Tupperware lady than I am a bible-thumper. At least Tupperware is useful!

Tupperware is also cheaper - five bucks and you are done. Some churches want 10% of your salary - like a 401k plan to ensure your eventual happy "retirement" will be in heaven.

'No Soliciting' Should Apply to Everyone.

Nice to know, I was getting ready to go tape one to the door, and I donít need to give them any encouragement or a challenge.

The problem is that their religion tells them to bother other people. But I rathe enjoy debating the Mormon kids.
