I am reading Releasing the Bonds at the moment and yet again Steve Hassan has brought to my attention a phobia I didn't even realise I had. Entering a church. I remember on a couple of occasions being with JW's who refused point blank to enter a church even when they had cause to do so. There's a passage in the book where Hassan relates the experience of a young JW boy who refused to be evacuated during a fire alert to a church because it contained the devil. When I have gone in a church I've experienced a racing pulse, dry mouth and feeling of discomfort. I have even seen JW's too afraid to shake a clergyman's hand on the ministry or at a funeral.
Such is the fear of being tainted by "Babylon the Great".
