We got home from the farm late yesterday afternoon. And, boy was it wonderful to be able just to sit on a couch again! (We were camping out at the farm sans furniture while we painted the house, for anyone who missed that.)
When I got up this morning and started putting everything away, I found, on our shoe rack in the mudroom, a pamphlet from the Jehovas Witnesses. Now, this was not on the shoe rack when we left. Our mudroom door does not have an outside lock (remember this is an old house), but we do have a lock between the mudroom and the main house. Some JW knocked on our door, apparently, and not finding us home opened our mudroom door and put their hand in my house to leave that pamphlet on our shoe rack! Can you imagine the gall!!!
And what makes it worse is the fact that one of the key articles in this pamphlet concerns contraception and the Catholic Church! I just can't believe that anyone would be so incredibly.... What!? Rude doesn't cover it!
For one thing, the article totally misrepresents the Church's stand on contraception, of course. But, to think that someone ~ someone from my community, obviously ~ would feel justified in making such a statement to my family in such an incredibly intrusive way! Running off like a thief, where I cannot answer their objection to my entire life and to the Faith I love, whose truth I would defend to my death.... AGH!!! Wouldn't I love to give them a piece of my mind!! I wonder if they snuck over here and put that pamphlet in my door because they knew we were not here?? (OK, sorry, maybe that's getting too conspiracy-theorist, but... Sheesh!)
(Deep breath) Anyway, when I calm down, I may have to write a letter or something. What to say? Agh! I feel so violated!
And REALLY TICKED OFF!
