They were just at our door! Too bad no restrictions on that. :(

Had to go back to the PO today and asked. Sure enough, the postmaster is a JW. Seems pretty risky, exposing himself to potential reprimands or job loss for violating policy, or even lawsuits if he were to discriminate against other organisations that would like to post up in the lobby. I suppose it doesn't matter, since the world should be ending any day now...

Obviously, it bothers you at least a hoot and 3/4.

It's a rhetorical question since ALL groups are prohibited from soliciting inside the PO, but how about inviting the FLDS to come and talk about the joys of 13 year old brides? The International Church of Cannibis? Perhaps a full birka-d conservative Muslim sect? Moonies? And there are certainly more offensive "religions" out there. Thanks, Elk Creek Geek for clarifying with him why this suddenly was allowed. Our US Constitution expressly prohibits state sponsored support for any religion and a separation of Church from state (though this wall unfortunately continues to be challenged). It's obvious that this was what happened at the Pine PO, and I'm hoping it won't happen again.

Not at all. I said I would follow up, so I did (forgot to quote that I notice.) I personally find it thoroughly entertaining.

Rip off all of your clothes, mist yourself with water, answer the door panting heavily and ask them if they have come for the orgy. I have found the method to be VERY effective! :whistle:

That would make some people want to go to the post office.

I’m not sure why this post is still up? It is disrespectful and vulgar to our neighbors that are part of this community. Where is the moderator for Pinecam? I demand this post be deleted.

nothing vulgar or disrespectful IMO. you have the power to just change threads and move on. don't act so high and mighty telling others what to do or how to act. plenty of that in washington right?
