My Neighbor Tries to Witness To Me Via WiFi


Drive by our home and do a WiFi scan and you will find that our Service Set Identifiers (SSID) reflect that we believe two things:

  • There is no God
  • If there is a God, Bruce Almighty is his name

Today, I found out that one of my neighbors is use their WiFi SSID to “witness” to me That’s right, I can’t even escape Evangelicals in the comfort and safety of my  home. I actually  find their witnessing attempt to be quite funny and innovative. Here’s a screen shot of a WiFi scan I did earlier today:


What’s next? John 3:16? Perhaps I should change my SSID to jesusisdead, christianitysucks,666, satanrulz, or ilovesin. 🙂


Bruce Gerencser, 66, lives in rural Northwest Ohio with his wife of 45 years. He and his wife have six grown children and thirteen grandchildren. Bruce pastored Evangelical churches for twenty-five years in Ohio, Texas, and Michigan. Bruce left the ministry in 2005, and in 2008 he left Christianity. Bruce is now a humanist and an atheist.

    heard of someone who didn’t like their neighbors who were partaking of herbal substances, so they set the wifi SSID to something like “DEA-surveillance-4”. made the problem diminish apparently. 😉

    Are you certain it is the neighbor and not the Almighty? After all God talks to Peter Popoff over 39.17 Mhz (and God sounds exactly like his wife!)
    Ah the miracle of radio!

    Laughing my ass off here… mine is named ‘Get Your Free Viruses Here!’ and one of my neighbors that works for the FBI has his labeled ‘FBI Surveillance Van’ Your neighbors obviously do not know that putting your identifiable last name as your SSID name is a big security no-no. Once worked at a British firm that had all British curse words for SSID names like ‘Arse’ and ‘Bollocks’

    I could not help but notice that the signal strength of “Jesus Saves” is pretty much negligible. Pretty much says it all right there, doesn’t it?
