I talked to a JW I know and got an unexpected reaction.
I mentioned some of the "conspiracy theory" stuff I have heard...about one taken, one left behind ...and what I have heard about people will be picked up in the middle of the night and taken away to "places".
This JW took it right in stride and said "yes, that's the way it was done when the Nazi's started. Many Jws were killed then...blah blah". Then this staunch JW says "I hope they shoot me. I don't want to be gassed." I had not said anything about gas chambers, although I have heard much rumor about the "leggo blocks" and more.
I was quite taken aback. Because this person is a born-in-never-miss-a-meeting kind of person. I had thought for some reason, maybe from what I have heard you all say on the board here, that Jws thought they would all survive and be the only ones.
This person said they have been told that many of them will be killed.
So can someone explain to me.....are the Jws being told 'prepare to die' or what exactly? I think I liked it better when they at least had happy thoughts of their illusion of paradise.
