I seem to remember when I was a kid that the innocent song Que, Sara, Sara song sung by Doris Day was considered evil. I was a kid in the 1960's and I remembered that I thought that song was cool. But I seem to remember that it was hated by the Witnesses. The only reason I remember is because I asked my mom why the Witnesses banned that song.
Mom told me that it was because Doris Day sang "that will be will be". Mom told me that since Jehovah forteld in the bible what would happen in the future, that "what will be will be" is incorrect. Jehovah has fortold the future, Does anyone remember that??
At the time I was a kid in the 1960's. I was also into Bewitched. I used to love that show. I remember that Brandpe Zack was visiting us and I was watching that show. Grandpa Zack got off of the couch and left the room as soon as possible. I asked mom what the problem was and she told me that since it was about witchcraft, that the show would allow him to be deminized.
I'm not the smartest cog in the wheel, and I believed in this religion wholeheartedly, but I thought this was very weird behaviour. Even though I prayed to Jehovah every night, I still had this niggling feeling that this was all bullshit. I believed in this religion since I was raised in it, but I would never commit, by getting baptized.
I was a good Witness with my eyes on 1975. I never fully believed, but if I kept one foot inside, then maybe I could survive Armegeddeon. After 1975 came and went, I went wild and totallty left this horrrible cult.
As a kid I had my doubts about this cult, but after 1975 I was smart enough to get completely out. I don't know why anyone would have stayed in this cult after 1975.
I've talked to Witnesses that have joined since then and they either deny that 1975 happened, or they tow the company line by saying that some people got ahead of the "orginization"
My Uncle, who is an Elder in the Congo is totally untalkable, he relates every story to how I should be a Witness again. Their zeal is pathetic to me.
I wasn't particually a bright young man as I was growing up, but I never got baptized as a Witness because I always had my doubts abut this Cult.
