WERE THERE ANY BULLIES IN YOUR CONGREGATION/CIRCUIT?
Do flies gather on manure?
One circuit overseer and several elders were bullies. The rest of the jws were ok, but ubfortunately all the bullies had power, so they were able to carry on with their bullying unchecked.
I remember one lovely lady whose husband was a violent opposer of the JWs and used to beat her and he children. They lived in terror. On the way out of school one day, we were stopped by Sister Elderette. She asked the lady why she hadn't seen her out in service this week. She told her she should start going out on Saturdays and make a stand against her husband. She parted with the words to this poor woman, 'I'll expect to see you out on Saturday morning, Helen!'
Helen started to cry. I, to my shame had said nothing to stick up for her, though to be honest I was gob smacked at the cheek of Elderette.
I just told Helen to ignore her.
Helen is dead now because of her husband.
I think of Helen, and her children, a lot.
Yes the last CO I had. He was such a jackass and a manipulative, self serving prick.
THANKS EVERYONE FOR YOUR REPLIES!
Badboy - Aren't most JWs basically bullies. They try to bully people with fear of Armageddon into becoming and staying JWs. They bully them into not speaking their minds with fear of Shunning.
It's a Big Bully Borgnization!!
Isn't their God a Bully! Do what I say or I'll kill you and your innocent children! Hardly a surprise that JWs are bullies really!
