    "the pity of the JW !!! It is usually people who REALLY DO want to serve GOD!! But when they find out it was an IDEA! they were serving - they lose faith in a REAL CREATOR..."

    Part of the JW 'reasoning' for stifling its members' educational pursuits is that many educated people do come to question god (and more especially, they question religion and most specifically - cult religion like the jw's) - regardless of whether they belonged to a cult or not. Also, education does indeed facilitate the questioning and it facilitates REAL reasoning - something JWs thwart - and a number of reasonable, educated people do come to "lose faith in a "real creator" for many intelligent (as well as emotional) reasons. I'd love to discuss that in another post and not hi-jack this one, though.)

  • Nosferatu

    I was called a "Jo-ho"

  • MidwichCuckoo

    I was just called 'Midwich Cuckoo' - but then I guess if one has yellow eyes it sort of takes priority over being a dub, lol.

    Bible Boy.

    Instead of saying " Is he a witness?" my Dad would say"Is he in the Witness Unprotection Program?"

    It used to drive my Mom crazy.

  • Threestars

    "Junkajehovah" In retrospect--that name has quite a lot of nice alliteration.

    The main way my classmates liked to torment me though was by asking me what presents I had gotten for Christmas and what I was going to be for Halloween.
