    While I don't require people to do it, mostly because I've got nice carpets over my antique hardwoods in most areas of the house that anyone is likely to ever walk in, if that's what I wanted, people could either do it or not come into the house. My house, my rules, don't like it, tough noogies.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    It's bull**** for several reasons:

    1)What makes you so confident that your floor is that clean?
    2)This is the West, not the East.
    3)I wear boots all the time and it takes me 20 minutes to take them off. The reason the Japanese started that stupid tradition is because they wore sandals back in they day, not laced shoes or boots.
    4)Peoples feet smell.
    Their property, their rules.

    Tough crap. Get over yourself. It's MY house. And you'd damned well better take your shoes off before tracking all the mud and muck from outside, inside. Around here, it's beyond rude NOT to take your shoes off at the front door.

    It's their house. If taking your shoes off is inconvenient, don't visit. Invite them to your house or to a public place.

    What if I just stand outside your house firing randomly into the air?

    Then the police can arrest you for creating chaos in the neighborhood.
