As for me, I don't want them to have another BofM to sucker in some poor soul.

Why give it back to them?

Why not just dispose of it and then tell them you are done?

Drive a cross through it and tell them you've killed their horcrux

But catholics have a whole set of baggage that is even worse than mormonism. I'd suggest staying clear of all the crying statues, Guadalupe whoever, old men in pointed hats and white robes, and of course the holy lady, emasculating virgin something or other.

You could hand it back to them and say what my Dad said after reading it, "Violent little book, isn't it?"

We are dealing with dangerous and toxic materials here
Similar to asbestos
You have a responsibility to not pollute the environment with that lethal material
Wrap in heavy plastic, tape securely and take to waste depot

Don't contact them again.

Would you call back a salesman to tell him you decided not to buy? All you're going to get is more sales pitches.


You don't owe them anything. Don't let them keep having contact with you. Throw the book in the trash. If you must, maybe leave the book on their porch with a note, "Thanks, but not interested. Returning your book."

Why do you have ANY contact with the missionaries?

It's clear to us that you don't want to be LDS. Why would the missionaries think otherwise? Are you stringing them along?

Set a barbecue grill by door, when they come by burn it to see their reaction.

I am curious as to why you started taking discussions from them in the first place, CH.

Weren't you already here as a former Church of Christ member and posting to RfM, learning about Mormonism from the ex-Mormon perspective, as a burned out Church of Christ member?

What exactly caused you to start hobnobbing with missionaries and taking the discussions that would lead to baptism?

How did you get suckered into taking the missionary discussions? Were you serious?

What was it about being here on RfM that made you seek out the mishies, if you don't mind my asking?

Toss the book, tell them you are not interested and stop talking to them.

They are used to rejection.

You don't even need to give them a reason, frankly it is your decision and none of their business.

Tell them in a straightforward manner -- "I've had the discussions, and I'm just not interested. Please do not call again, and take me out of whatever records you maintain. I don't want any more Mormon missionaries to call on me."

After that, refuse to respond when they knock on your door. There is no rule nor law that says you have to respond to someone who knocks on your door, calls you, or texts you.

Thank you! I didn't want to talk to them at all and missionaries who are new to the area look up anyone they see is left hanging by other missionaries! They just want you baptized
