I don't like any doorknockers, religious or not. It's my home, my sanctuary. When people knock on the door it means I have to put pants on. So annoying.
I don't like anyone who knocks on my door uninvited LOL! I like to make sure everything is clean and I look okay first (yes I'm strange!)
I have an electric gate with no pedestrian entry - no pesky door knockers here, they can't get in! 😊
While I'm at it, may I rant about charities and religious organisations being exempt from the Do Not Call list? Grinds my gears.
Every time I answer the door to them I just politely take a magazine and say thank you. They have never persisted beyond that with me
My brother loves them. Whoever they are he invites them onto his balcony offers them a drink, pulls out a bunch of religious texts to cross reference the inaccuracies of whatever they are preaching. He keeps them there until they are making excuses like "we'll come back later"
But they never do. Lol.
He's not doing it to be a dock though. He's genuinely just really is passionate about religion as a topic and door knockers are really the only people who'll stay for an hour or so and give a good back and forth discussion before they quit.

I don't mind the religious door knockers in my area. I politely say 'I'm not interested' and they say 'no worries, have a nice day' and leave straight away. I can respect that door knocking is part of their beliefs if they respect my right to not be interested. If they are pushy, then I have a problem.
Electricity companies and the like are the ones that really annoy me.
I would prefer to have no door knockers at all though, nothing worse than having the doorbell ring when you are in your pyjamas, hair unbrushed and kids screaming (making it obvious you are home). Even ignoring the door is still an interruption I don't care for.
I hide lol
I actually find the concept of religious doorknockers offensive, I know they see it as their calling but there is no way in heck I would start bothering my neighbours to 'share' my beliefs. I find it very intrusive and far too pushy.
