You know how it is. You talk to people in general about JWs and what a crock of shit their beliefs are and you think 'maybe I went on too much!' 'Perhaps they weren't really listening anyway!' "I wish I hadn't bothered!'
Well, my sister recently left JW land and went to live with a really lovely man. We had long discussions on the Watchtower, Bible, all the JW beliefs and nonsense that it is. He seemed sometimes quite interested and fascinated with how intelligent people could get drawn into such BS! He was surprised that anyone would believe a book company was a religion....infact I was quite embarrassed that I had been born into it and had totally fallen for the BS myself. It just fascinated him that we could have been so foolish.
Well, last week end, two JWs called at his house. My sister tried to get him to come in and stop, in her words, 'winding them up' but he was having too much fun asking them questions. He's an incredibly intelligent man so there was never going to be a local JW who could answer 'any' of his questions without tying themselves up into BIG knots of anxiety! Often their answers ended up with 'because it is' or 'because it says so' etc.
Anyway, they placed a new book with him. He's said they can come back this Saturday and he's all ready for his next game of cat and mouse with these poor JWs.
The thing is, my sister is embarrassed. Not for him, but for the JWS. She says she remembers being so totally stupid and now this super intelligent bloke is having a lovely time just teasing them because in the end, there's nothings the WTBTS says that makes very much sense at all.
So, I'm wondering what is going on round their house this morning. Could the JWs have chickened out?
Whatever, I hope he's haivng fun, and hopefully planting a few seeds of doubt as they discover they cannot answer any of his questions satisfactorily.
