Ok. We have that "special" campaign ahead.....i still don't know how i will avoid participating....my family is all excited and WILL put the pressure on.....I might get my 50 tracts and toss them somewhere......it will look suspicious that I finished after an hour and "placed" 50 pcs in a territory that is closed to JW.....anyway. Here a few thoughts that crossed my mind:
Everybody at my Hall is all excited about this special tract and I can't get the nice conversations I usually have with a few going, because of the excitement. Here is why:
Most are making the connections: "Oh-this-MUST-be-THE-END" campaign, because you see "Pope-making-funny-comments-Spain-Government-tossing-Catholic-Church-out-All-World-hates-bad-Religions (not ours)-like-Muslims-and-now-this-tract-IN-OCTOBER (if you are/where a witness you know what october means for them"
This gets me all mad! Because here are my observations:
IF this is the ALL-or-NOTHING campaign THEN EVERY HUMAN should be advised about they're inminent dead. But, 50 tracts X 6 Million Witnesses (not all will place 50 pcs, children and elderly NOT, and many others NONE) This makes for 300 Million privileged persons that WILL hear about possible dead.......this is not even 1% of humankind....now, take into account that 50 Milllion will be placed in US (1 Mio JW) if you look at 211 countries they preach...it means MOST WILL NOT HEAR about their death sentence.
Then, if this would be for real they would use they're whole wealth and the hundreds of millions they have in investments to make the biggest ADVERTISING CAMPAIGN on earth (TV, Radio - hey they did this for issues less important than this one), Internet, Newspapers, etc.) BUT NO. This is a small activity campaign....LOL, the Kingdom Ministry even says that you SHOULD NOT use it in street service, only door to door and if nobody home leave it......if you really wanted to advertise this STREET WORK would be the most obvious since they push that so much in other ocassions......
PLUS: The tract is really covard: shows picture of catholic priest - NOT an Muslim Iman.....also does not mention UN as the beast.....etc.
My viewpoint: LAME! This couldn't be LAMER.......First it caught my interest that they would have a real SHOW starting, but now......really lame. I feel sad about this whole thing, but worser about participating in it......
