OK, a little odd, but how else do you articulate it?
Let me explain: I spent some time with some Catholics who are very loyal to their church. Nevertheless, they openly agree that priests
should be allowed to marry. Their disagreement is no big deal.
Contrast this with the average Witness , these days, who appears to accept every doctrine, "leading" or hint from the Watchtower
as absolute truth. They may reason to themselves that they are imperfect and often unable to do whatever is demanded of them,
but nonetheless see the Society as infallible, in a practical sense, with any "mistakes" transformed into Divinely Ordained
tests of faithfulness.
Unlike most people, Witnesses seem to exist in only Boolean states - "On" or "Off"! Even slackers often pay lip service to the thought
that "it's still the truth", though they may miss meetings for years.
As you try to reason with your Witness relatives and "friends", it often seems like they will believe anything the Watchtower says,
uncritically and absolutely, no matter how foolish it is. Given the emotion associated with this, I'm inclined to think that most
of them aren't kidding. You swallow all of it - or none.
My dear departed mother noticed this and commented that it wasn't always so. In the past, when Witnesses actually knew something
about the Bible, they often had discrete disagreements with various aspects of the "truth".
In summary, I suppose the above is simply the strongest evidence available that we dealing with a cult - in that it demands
an absolute- unmerited - subjugation of one's power of reason.
