So, I just need to vent this really quick because it really really makes me angry...

 

My sister and I are home alone earlier today when all of a sudden a man neither of us know rings the doorbell. I was on my way to answer the door when he just tries to walk into our house--luckily the door was locked. I then made the decision that I wasn't going to open the door to a stranger who thought he could just walk into my house univited. He then stood there for a little while, rang the doorbell again, stood there for a little while longer, messed around with the doors some more, then left. As soon as he was gone I called my mom to see if she or my dad was expecting anyone to come by today and she said neither of them were. She calls me back a couple minutes later saying it was the minister from HER church and that they were on their way back home and he was coming back also.

 

So, the creepy stranger who tried to just walk into my house was the minister from her church, and instead of confronting him about basically trying to break into our house and scaring her children, she invites him to come back to the house. Also, I've been expressly told that I'm not to say anything to him because she knows I'm not one to be wronged or offended and just stand by and let it happen.

 

Am I missing something? Granted, it's not the worst thing anyone's ever done, but it's still not okay. But, he gets away with it because he is who he is.

 

If you've made it this far then let me just say thank you for reading and letting me vent in the one place I know it's safe for me to do so!

Oh my gosh. That is horrible. It's not surprising either. The scandal involving the pedophile priests is testimony to the reality that people in religion think their religious leaders should be impervious to criticism when they do something wrong.

I'd be really pissed. Regardless of whether or not this man is from your mother's church, a straight out stranger should not be trying to barge into any place that is not public, or his home! Being a minister doesn't give you the right to walk into anyone's homes.

 

I get your mom probably doesn't want to upset him and make a "big deal" but she has her kids in the house!!!

He's lucky he didn't get shot. Anyone trying to walk into my home? Hell. To. Pay.

@StarStuff I literally 10 mins ago heard the door open I called out and no one answered. I ran downstairs with a shotgun in hand. Turns out it was my idiot little brother that didn't answer because he's mad at me.

I would cause such a fucking stink about someone coming into my house no matter who it is. That is just so creepy! Fuck that guy, you should give him a piece of your mind. That is ridiculous. There is no excuse to ever even jiggle someone's door knob. Arrrrgh so angry, adrenaline still pumping. lol

The only way I could justify his actions is if he had been allowed several times before to perform such an intrusion.  But the minute you feel a door is locked you don't assume that it means FIDDLE WITH IT REPEATEDLY!   Yeah I think you allowed to vent on that one.

I'd be inked as well. Church leaders seem to think they have special privilege more often than not. But if someone isn't expecting you, simply trying to come on in is nothing other than rude. It doesn't matter if you know them if you weren't invited. And to disallow calling on it does nothing more than support this imaginary feeling of privilege makes it seem as if he's beyond question. Bull, I say!

I likely would have shot him and asked questions later.  You are much too kind.

Man! Reminds me of Dennis Raider! Raider was the president of the local christ lutherian church council. He was also a serial killer better known as B.T.K.

I would have called that ****er out. I don't care what my parents or anyone says, it's that kind of BS that pisses me off. If he denies it then he can eat [insert nasty item here] and go to his imaginary hell.

I say, next time invite the poor minister in and explain to him what is wrong with his pathetic deluded way of life!
