I was musing about being a Jw the other day.Im not scarred by it like many,i dont hate anyone in my old cong..theres a couple of idiotic Elders of course,but in the main my biggest thing when i think of my past life is the farsical nonsense of it all!
Meeting attendance,knocking on doors...oh dear.
One of the stupidest things was being required to do Talks.I mean,come on who really used to listen to that drivel..i mean REALLY listen?
I was an ok speaker,nothing briliant,competent ..even gave a pub talk once when all the Elders were on a jolly up at elders school.
It occurred to me how robotic Bros and sis were when it came to giving praise!No matter how crap the talk was,one would always get a "i really enjoyed your talk brother".Every time.Without fail.I know they were being nice,i used to say it all the time too.My dad once said it to me and i asked him what he liked most about it?He admitted he didnt remember what it was even about.I dont remember in 30 years man and boy EVER enjoying a talk.
Yep,its a nonsense religion alright.Full of braindead robots.
Did anyone actually pay close attention and really enjoy the "food"from the platform?
