I keep a 5 million candlepower spotlight by the door, just to help them see the light.

Well, since many of 'em think we're satanists anyway, I figure the obligatory black t-shirt with "sassy" content would be expected.

I learned a long time ago to say that I have a spiritual community... that it is wiccan/sceptic/zen/nudist/tree hugging freaks is not their concern. Really. They are happy that you have a community and leave.
They are looking for the people who are feeling detached and lonely and lost. Not a bad goal.
It might be fun to get an agnostic/atheist/what the heck are we pair to go knocking on doors... can you imagine it? Knocking on doors and asking if you have found freedom?
Oh, I can see it- Birkenstocks, and no bra allowed for door knocking, just as a 'door knocking uniform'. Maybe carry Frank Zappa and Einstein photos...

What would you think would be the best 'not a Christian' door knocking uniform?

It would make good comedy fodder, though I don't know if its yet been done.

I haven't encountered any of these for years. They were what made me quit answering my door 98% of the time.

If it's anything like the success rate of direct mail, 1% is considered GOOD.

Haven't there been two movies where the homeowner turns the tables on the bible thumpers, and they can't wait to get away? (Like your real-life father, Steph).

My father, an openly gay episcopal priest, invites them in to toy with them. It's like watching a cheetah go in for the kill.

What are the sales goals for these folks? Do they have data somewhere saying that this is an effective method of spreading the Word? What is considered a success ratio - one in every 10,000 door knocks results in a Seen the Light moment?

I've just ignored my second set this season.
