"Good sense stress", was the description of an elder for a circuit overseer's undue emphasis on the words "The children are helping mommy and daddy to...pioNEER.... YES". He said this during a talk of his in the early 1990's. Upon going to a pioneer meeting on that Saturday and seeing him first hand using his hands in a circular motion around a pioneers face who was sitting too close in front of him, he stated "Did you ever notice that little glow they have?" At that moment he bounced back into his chair as some invisible force hit him during his little sorcery technique. There was an elder present and several pioneers and stalwarts, including my aunt, a JW since the 1950's. I, a lone peon troublemaker however was the only one apparently who objected to spiritism that day. After being called an "apostate" a "Diotrophese" and a "slanderer" by elders I was disfellowshipped. The c.o. sorcerer was later appointed to District Overseer. He must be in his 70's by now. Leroy Langon was the name he went by.
On another occasion, when calling a girl that I was interested in from another circuit, I discovered that she had just come in from pioneer school and was talking in chirping tone of voice when she stated "Marriage is a temptation from Satan the Devil." Apparently she had been listening to some "inspired expressions" that I wasn't aware of until then. I tried to help her see things clearly and snap out of her contentious spirit she had obtained to no avail. I am sure she revels in my "downfall". And yet, on another occasion soon after, a Bethel pioneer came to our southern town and gave a slide show presentation at a neighboring KH. When he prayed for "The Spirit of this Great Pioneer Ministry", I could feel a spirit of some strange sort try to pull me up from my chair. It caused me to have a sharp pain in my neck for a while.
Needless to say I will not go back unless they change their ways. Even then, I don't believe I would ever do so since I have been waiting over 15 years for them to come to their senses. The organization hates my guts and sent a message to the elders to "do something about this". Obviously they have disavowed themselves of any responsiblity for this rampant heresy (false teaching) or it's existence, leaving it up to the elders in outlying congo's to attack any individual who speaks up to them.
