I'm like Gary and wasn't aware of it till I was leaving a convention and some apostates were holding up signs across the street that said
..."Jesus is not your Mediator" and it quoted which Watchtower that it was stated in. I wasn't offended when I read the article because their explanation made sense to me at that time. I was content that he was at least my 'High Priest'.
I was the same way about apostates. We were told that they are like poison.
