    Did you simply ignore them, or did you try to "help" them with magazines while witnessing in the streets?

    I have never confronted them.

  • ldrnomo

    I would have probably flirted with them

    I did but I am a woman. I would make appointments to talk when they weren't at work. I worked in law enforcement for 10 years and we met on the job from time to time. I would talk to homeless people but I never pushed publications.

    ldr, most of the prostitutes are ugly.

    If they accept a magazine/book/pamphlet would it be advisable to ask for the contributions from them? considering how the money was/is obtained?

    "prostitutes are ugly"

    I refuse to witness to ugly people! Can you imagin ugly people running around forever in the new system.

    I remember when I was young and dumb. My partner and I was invited in a house of prostitutes and witnessed to them. After about 15 minutes they asked if we wanted to go to their bedrooms. We left the house embarassed. They were young and pretty.

    African GB Member, how do you know where anyone got their money? I had mafia families in my neighborhood, very nice houses and nothing to indicate their background...or the guy that rips people off at his business...or the guy that pimps women...or deals drugs...you can't know where anyone's money comes from.

    Jesus talked to prostitutes and accepted gifts from them...................

    I used to work in a bad area where there were hookers and crack dealers.

    We always spoke to them, no big deal.

    Like Blondie said, Jesus treated them kindly, so I always tried to do the same.

    They were actually the better conversations we had..........usually didnt take the literature but would treat us with respect and were usually very polite.
