Although never a fully paid up, dunked member of the club, I was at times very keen on the whole JW thang.
When I was in, I thought all worldly people were lying, cheating, alcohol and drug addicted, sex obsessed gambling criminals who should be treated with ,at least a very high degree of suspicion. As per the classic pictures in the 80's books - all women looked like hookers, all men were pictured smoking or with a whisky bottle.
Did others here have similar opinions.
I remember being 8 or 9 and my idea of a worldly man was a picture in the pale blue (Creation book) or the red one (dunno the name) - I'll try and scan the picture I mean one day, it's brilliant. It is a chap with a black moustache and a white shirt sat at a circular table looking all forlorn. There is a bottle of grog and a tumbler on the table. Brilliant. I suppose I'm that man now. Except no moustache!
