    "That's great! Armaggeddon keeps getting pushed back! Isn't Jehoober a loving, patient God?"

    Minimus, If my own mother told me that as a witness I would responded by saying that the JWs where all going to die in their ignorance. Besides, why is she predicting the end, Armageddon, within your lifetime? How does she know that you won't die at 99 with grandchildren gathered around your deathbed while you quietly and peacefully and happily croak while the big A happens the following year?

    I like Blondie's answer. Otherwise, "I hope I live that long."
    We are sending zingers, but it is tough to deal with a loved one wrapped in the dangerous mind-control of WT.

    Strength to you.

    It doesnt matter to them when it them saying that to us is like calling a black person a N. Calling a hispanic person a S. Just cursing you. Its an "Im better than you and you cant do anything about it!" nyah nyah nyah statement.

    There is no sinning inside the Borg. All you need is that Blood Card in your wallet and you are good to go.

    I would have said "Hopefully you won't be around to see that, I'd hate for you to have that etched in your memory for 1000 years!"

    But I agree with WuzLoveDubs - you witnessed a knee-jerk defense mechanism to maintain a pseudo-superior attitude. Did you say something JW related that might have irritated her, min?

    I also might have said something a little more nasty: "That's what you believe. And I believe that you'll die before Armageddon. So what?"

    One possibility is that your mommy is an oracle and a mouthpiece for Jovah. Another more likely possibility is that she presumes to speak for Jovah and it will not come to pass. Where does that leave her?

    I've said it a 100 times and I'll say it again, and in fact will tell my mother if she ever made a comment like that: "I'd rather die than spend eternity dressed in polo shirts, kakhis and surrounded by douchebags".

    LOL @ Mastodon - well said, that's exactly how i feel

    I know my mom thinks it, but hasn't said it. Damn them for that.
