JWs come for a visit! I can't believe it.

    I just wanted to relate that this weekend, a group of JWs came by and visited me-they had come to Athens to watch the big game that my team didn't show up for. Most of them knew that I had written letters to many family members and friends saying the JWs were full of crocodile crap and yet all of them hung out with me.

    One was inquisitive in a good way, asking me if I was an 'apostate"... I told him that I was because I've formerly stated that I disagree with the JWs about many of their doctrines. I told him about Beth Sarim and he'd never even heard of it among other things. We looked it up on the internet... fun to watch his impression.

    Simple thing I learned from the visit, almost none of them really take the religion serious...they all have really big doubts as evidenced by them hanging with an apostate. A couple of them said "I just want to believe it, what's wrong with that?"

    I told them not a damn thing as long as they treated me nice-I don't care what anyone believes as long as they keep it private and don't hurt others. We had a really good time, hung out downtown, talked about the JWs and my decision to write my letters... anyway, I think the JWs are catching on, that the religion is utter nonsense.

    Dawg, just the fact that they would hang out with you shows they arent hardcore dubs. Maybe you said something that made them think. Let's hope so.

    That game in Athens actually surprised me, in a good way.

    I figured you'd be happy about Sat... I was just as sad...

    Don't worry, Dawg. They are going to drop you like a steaming turd once they go through one of they're 'righteous' phases. They were just stunned that you were saying all that.

    Hey Dawg! Glad to hear you had a nice time with some old friends! I wonder the same thing so much! When Hubby and I were in, we were the example couple for the younger set. We keep in touch with a few on Myspace, and I am sure they've heard of our leaving by now. I can't imagine that they really believe it all. It just keeps peace in their families.

    Wow, hanging out with an apostate. They are practicing some serious cognitive dissonance. You may have helped plant some seeds that will lead them right out. Beth Sarim is as good a topic as any. They can verify it on page 76 of the Proclaimers book.

    Let's hope the realities about the deceptive nature of the wts are seeping through the defenses put up by the fds, I am sure many doubting dubs are checking them out on the internet where there is an immense amount of information, hundreds of anti JW sites, covering every jw aspect. The fds must be really worried about the internet and the damage it can do to their devious schemes.
