Actually, about 2 million mailboxes by Rev. Dan Vojir

And billions$ to a nation that doesn't want it.

It seemed like a harmless irritation: a "gift" from a religious institution, a proselytizing reprint of a very old work by a "prophetess" - a tome only a few thousand people have read in the past 100 years. It came in my mailbox, addressed to "resident."

It also came to all the other 260 residents in my building. And the 9500 residents in my city's residential development (Park Merced). And about 250,000 households in San Francisco.

My postal carrier gave me tales about how many people were complaining and about how many hundreds more were still in her truck waiting to be delivered.

I looked up the publisher and the organization:

From the website of Remnant Publications:

Over the past year Remnant Publications has been sending mass mailings of The Great Controversy to major cities in the United States. So far we've blanketed New York City; Washington, DC; and Charlotte, NC, with nearly two million copies of this crucial end-time book.
Our supporters made this possible by funding the printing and mailing costs for the books. Now we're reaching into the San Francisco Bay area in California.

San Francisco is not the easiest community to reach. For years the city has been at the forefront of the gay movement. In fact, 15 percent of San Francisco residents are homosexual. The area is home to the University of California-Berkeley, a hotbed of liberal ideas. It also contains the affluent communities of Silicon Valley, where high-tech companies like Google and Facebook are changing the world on a daily basis.

Only about 20 percent of the people in San Francisco County are affiliated with any Protestant church. There is only one Seventh-day Adventist for every 672 people in this area. We have a lot of work to do to share the gospel in these cities!

The people of San Francisco may not know it, but they desperately need the eternal hope that Jesus offers. That hope is contained in the pages of The Great Controversy. We want to get the message into their hands before it's too late. (emphasis mine)

In other words, they don't care whether we want it or not. Such is the ideology of the proselytizer.

Totally Irrelevant? by remnant publications

The Cost Of Proselytizing

Being accosted by a mega-phoned street preacher is one thing, but having him come into your mailbox at the cost of USPS service and revenue is another.
