He changes the subject at this point and says,
"Churches don't teach the bible or use God's name, Jehovah"
Ahhh, the perfect example of a mind controlling organisation.
When you made him realise (he already knew this but you reminded him) the Jehovah's Witnesses do not act as the Samaritan in the parable, he had to find in his mind a reason for that behavior.....and his cult trained mind recalled the reason why god himself hates religion who is going to be destroyed soon.

Jez.....you did well in your material....but I think you pushed him a bit. Too many questions at once fired at an old guy who seen enough crap in his faith he keeps it buried and you uncovered alot of it. I think with a guy like him maybe to have played more dumb and drew him out longer on one subject might made him think some more perhaps and you could have talked longer.....or, I might be wrong and your manner planted more seeds in him than he wants to think about and it might actually make him consider what you said. Anyway...you did good.
