Come off it James. It's irritating how you could generalize about Jehovah's Witnesses so easily as if you were talking about some alien species. There is no such thing as a "typical" Witness. I know you served in Bethel, were an elder, etc. In all your peregrinations, you cannot say that people like MalcolmX represent the mainstream. If you must know, those like him who come on public boards all foaming in the mouth are not typical but marginal. The "typical" Witness, if there is ever such a creature, hardly ventures into cyberspace to rant. Many Witnesses have their intelligence and decency challenged on a daily basis reading comments as you have made. There is no point putting up superior airs simply because you decided to be a Witness no more. The very credit you claim Witnesses deny others, you are in turn denying them by your words and insinuations. Get back down from that high horse, Sir.
At first i didn't know how to take THIS post, I said to myself --is this person Dogging me or What--
but then i thought about it and i guess this is another reason for me to just love this NET "THANG"
This person has been able to disagree with my position on the "Typical JW mindset" and call me "Arrogant" at the same time.
Only outside of WT world do you and i have such freedom.
While this person feels that there is no "Typical JW Mindset on issues"
i tend to disgree with that,
but i respect thier right to feel othewise-
is it not funny how the entire post of mine revolved around how JW react negatively to anyone who disagrees with them and here i am merely saying we can disagree without being disagreeable
but PC you are entitled to your view, I just feel that the facts don't support your position.
I'm truly sorry that somehow due to my past life exp as a jw you find that makes me arrogant somehow.
If somehow I have given you the impression that I'm on some high horse
accept my apologies
i saw the thread with Amazing and Ammension a few days ago and it went back and forth and back and forth
their post left the Issues and became personal-
well if you had caught me perhaps a few year back i would have went round and round with you over the "Horse issue"
but like i stated when first came to this site back in 2000
I spent over 30 yrs of my life arguing with folks over whether Jesus Christ died on a "Light Pole or Telephone Pole"
i have no desire to get into a pissing match with folks who don't know me from Adam
i would suggest - it is always better to stick with the issues than to make it personal--ones arguement at least will be stronger
I wish you had asked me to provide you with example of what maybe considered a Typical JW Mindset for there are many, but at any rate thanks for at least taking the time to read my post and respond to it
have a good day
