FEAR and GREED are the only driving forces behind the WT.
FEAR that the dubs will find out that they are a sham.
FEAR that the brain dead, mentally challenged, socially stunted lifers might actually break free from their mental bonds.
I have decided to go for one day to appease the radical faction in the family; I am dreading it.
The last time I went, I was not even in my seat when the brother doing the daily text said:
"Obedience to the elders is the same as obedience to Jehovah himself".
I stopped in my tracks; did no one else hear this blasphemy?? Apparently not.
I just don't know how I will handle the luddite view of school. I have one graduated, one in and one heading there.
I just love how amazingly double minded and hypocritical most dubs are about school; I have a close relative that says not all view school this way. He has at least one degree, mind you, and makes 140 plus per year. Now has the money to pioneer!!
I always say the same thing: Young ones have little defense against the character assassination that college gets. NO; they don't forbid it. BUT: they imply that if you go you are greedy (like them), don't want to pioneer, lack spirituality and most importantly WASTING your time. Why would someone go to college if they believe that? To please Dad or Mom? When apologists state that not everyone believes this way, my answer is the same: if you are listening and believe that they are the channel, you are NOT going to go to college.
More lives have been ruined by the WT's policies than I can stomach to think about. Some days I dream of exiting in a very public, vocal and insulting way. Then I realize that I will only play into their game.
Lying, manipulative, life destroying. That is the true state of Ted J. and his buddies.
