    I've heard that J.W.s have a thing against flags (something about it being a bit too close to idolatry). If you have a flag hanging in your window or off your porch or whatever, they don't come to your door.

    I don't know whether this is true or not.

    I don't know whether one needs a U.S. flag, or whether one could hang a Programming Republic of Perl [www.ora.de] flag or other banner of choice.

    Google confirms their distaste for the flag, but seems silent on the issue of whether one would serve as an effective ward.

      I recommend a good Martian flag [crwflags.com].

    • Flags don't work. All they do is give the JW something to start talking about with you. "Really believe in this country? Well, God's kingdom can do more than any human government..."
