Why is it that JW's are so afraid to talk to anyone who questions the beliefs, or in general says anything bad about the ORG. Case in point here I have a friend his family are all JW's not the best of the crowd but they are trying, anyway his brother and I were talking and I was telling him about how some of my cousins have left the Org, and even showed him a funny picture of all of us wearing Jehovah's Witness Protection Program t-shirts there were about 7 of us in the photo. He ended the converstation very rapidly and left.
I was not really telling him anything that bad, and I was just mostly joking with him, honestly I didn't think he was all that much of a JW, before he got married he lived with his GF, I have heard he likes to party, and for the most part you'd swear he wasn't a JW, not even baptized. Not trying to say he is all bad but just about as worldly as any worldly person.
I heard from my friend that his brother was totally offended by me, and asked if I was in some kind of cult, and what was I "in to" and he was shocked that I attacked him on the JW stuff. I was like what the fuck!! First of all I was only showing him the picture because I was telling him how my cousins and I are blacklisted in the family, I was telling him our story, but in a very funny way in no way directly "attacking" him. I just saw him today and he avoided me like if I was not even in the same room, this coming from the same guy who has some very interesting stories about trips to strip clubs and TJ.
Anyway my question is this, Why do JW's get so offended at even the slightest mention of anything Anti-JW? As many of you know I am a Catholic now, I never get pissed off when people joke about catholics, or anything in fact one of my friends who is a Mormon we often make fun of each other.
