How to address religious people kncking at your door

When young people are involved  in religious door to door prostylizing (especially when an older man is over seeing a young woman) tend to think they may be foster kids. I want to drop them a note to help them excape the religious, or whatever else kind of 'trafficing' may be going on.   My toung bleeds and I've learned that it's detremental to pass notes.

The guy in the attached video is good.

This is also a good place to quote Dr. Kellie from the late great Atheist Nexus, who wrote about how she responded to door-to-door proselytizers:

I discovered a brilliant new way to avoid having xians ring my doorbell in attempt to share the good news with me.  Just now, I was in my kitchen, washing dishes and finding something to eat, when I looked out the large window above my sink.  Two men were approaching with bibles in hand.  Then, I realized they saw me.  We made eye contact and I gave them a big smile.  They stopped dead in their tracks and looked down, then slowly turned and walked away.  I can only assume this is because I was not wearing a shirt, or a bra.  Perhaps from this point on I will be answering the door shirtless.  Should give the mormon boys something to talk about.

"We're not living in an Old Testament anymore... When Jesus came things were changed" (and presumably the barbaric Old Testament provisions, like putting gay men and unruly kids to death, no longer applied)...

   So why do Christians make a big deal out of the Ten Commandments? As the guy in the video points out, that was a giant missed opportunity: "Thou shalt not covet" instead of "Thou shalt not enslave other people." (Not to mention, "Thou shalt not rape", "Respect thy children", and so on. Getting rid of the first four or so commandments that are basically "Thou shalt kiss My holy heiny" would give more room for some actual moral guidance.)

   ...which reminds me of Jim Huber's "Dead to Rights", a parody of the Chick tract "Last Rites". One snippet in particular:

"What proof do you have that the Flying Spaghetti Monster didn't make all this?"

   We can similarly ask Christians, "You believe in Satan, the Prince of Lies, a malevolent being with near-godlike powers who wants nothing more than for us to be lost and suffer and die. What proof do you have that the Devil didn't create the Bible, with all its barbarities and contradictions and nonsense, so that people would oppress and fight and kill each other over what the one true religion is, over how to live a righteous life, over what God really wants? What proof do you have that the Devil didn't create the Christian Bible AND the Vedas, and the Hebrew Scriptures, and the Qur'an, and the Book of Mormon, and all the burning bushes and prophets and revelations and golden plates? That would be a truly diabolical plan, having us do his dirty work for him!"

Sorry the previous attachement didn't work.

This one may.
