One thing that always struck me about JW's was their insularity, how truly ignorant so many of them are about the world outside of their world. To hear many JW's talk, Worldly People™, to a person, live in a constant state of debauchery.
I would guess that the majority of American JW's were watching the Super Bowl last night. Towards the end of the game, Phil Simms (the color commentator for CBS) was talking about how Tony Dungy (the coach of the Indianapolis Colts) never raises his voice, never curses, is "class" all the way. Similar praise for Dungy's unimpeachable character has been repeated endlessly on sports radio shows, in newspaper and magazine articles, by TV commentators, etc. both in the runup to the Super Bowl and in the articles I was reading today. During one of his post-game speeches or interviews (I can't remember which) Tony spoke of how he proved that you can succeed the "Lord's way"; this and other comments he made lead me to believe that he is devoutly religious.
Now, if I was still a JW and I had seen this, and knowing what a genuinely likeable character Tony Dungy is, I would have experienced intense cognitive dissonance at all this. The idea that dumb little Dan from stupid Ohio who hasn't done shit with his life is gonna be spared at the Big A while people like Tony Dungy were gonna get wacked, it was thoughts like this and the accompanying mental anguish that literally almost drove me insane during my last few years as a jaydub.
Can anybody relate to that?
