Out of the mouths of babes

    Well, went to the Circuit Assembly on Saturday.

    There was was a family on stage, with two kids I will call "The Stepford Children". (or would it be "The Dunwich Children"? Nah, they weren't that spooky or intelligent...)

    The theme was about fighting "permissiveness". One of the boys on stage was talking about the sad state of his school, in that "there was a homosexual student at his school, and that how all the students and faculty treated him like he was an alright guy and dealt normally with him."

    After the meeting, in the car, my son (who is in high school) asks me, "Well, how should they have been treating him? Should they all be making fun of him, calling him names and abusing him?"

    So, what a lot of people are calling "tolerance and understanding", the JWs call "permissiveness".

    Side note on the two kids on stage: The younger brother actually used expressions like "low sink of debauchery" in his prepared Q and A text. I really wanted to reach out and pull one of the hairs out of his head.

    JWs don't practice Christian love... they practice Jehovan love. And kids notice it. I noticed it when I was a kid. I didn't like it. It was in direct opposition to the Bible. Jehovan love is not Win-Win.

    "And kids notice it."

    Ya, my kids have noticed it too. Such a fine example of jehovahian love my parents are.

    I wonder how many times he had to rehearse the word "debauchery"..

    Before he could say it correctly?..

    His parents are raising him to be a good little..

    In my school we beat up the queers, so I don't see what all the fuss is.
