    Cognac. No offence, but hubby sounds a bit slow. Or is it that his defences keep blocking any sort of negative input? I know you've shown him plenty.

    I don't know where he was going with the whole Beelzabub thing. I think he didn't think that one though before he said it... We all say dumb things though...

    COGNAC and EVERYBODY ELSE - Another important thing Cognac's husband referred to in our discussion popped into my head last night. ( We talked for an hour and a half , so because I'm entering middle age some of the details keep coming back to me in spurts as my memory goes through nerve ending interruptions ! LOL!)

    When discussing the child abuse lawsuits going on in the media regarding Jehovah's Witnesses , her husband said, " Whenever there is news that is negative about Jehovah's Witnesses the media always runs with it and is eager to single out our organization because they are out to get us as they don't like Jehovah's Witnesses ! " To that statement I replied, " No- that's not actually accurate. If you read the latest news in the last few weeks even the media is attacking the Mormon fundamentalist for what happened in the huge temple in Texas where the FBI saved 400 young girls from being sexually abused by Mormon church men in their 50's - by getting them out of the temple . And the Catholic church had the huge lawsuits against them in the media and the Pope has been openly vocal about the atrocities in the media, and when it broke loose last summer- it was all over the newspapers ! So it's not just the witnesses being picked on here - child abuse is wrong in any religion , so the media reports it ! "

    So, I thought you folks would find this statement interesting. Like I said, I think he is a great guy- it is just difficult and hard to admit when thesethings are revealed to you - when you have always trusted that the witness organization was right

    Yep, the whole "us vs them" thing really did get drummed into our heads. Hard to shake it.
