DJ hates Jehovah's Witnesses more than anyone on this forum. He said:
I am not like the many Jehovah's Witnesses that cannot defend their faith without making a trip to the home library they maintain of older WTS publications which might go back some 50, 60 years (or more!), which library serves as a crutch for them, or, nowadays, the Watchtower Library cdrom on which books in retirement like Let God Be True first published in 1946 and then revised in 1952 aren't included, and are no longer needed due to what our progressive understanding of the Bible is today, and which is likewise a crutch.
DJ - how can you be something you disdain so much?
If only my family and friends would be willing to disobey the watchtower like DJ and come to this site. I would show them some of DJs posts and they would be done with the religion faster than DJ can type his typical run-on sentence. It would be priceless to see the expressions on lurking JWs faces when they read DJ's posts. When they see how the most long-winded JW apologetic on the forum thinks his "brothers and sisters" are stupid and ignorant, they realize that this religion is not one of love but one of scorn and prideful egos, as DJ so clearly shows.
And then to top it off - he consistently ignores requests to back up his claims regarding this whole date thing which even the Watchtower hasn't touched on in 20+ years. He's been shown from the bible, from history, from JW literature, and truthful facts that 607 is wrong. The more he writes the more he shows how wrong he is and the more people get to see his foolishness, but, as a bonus, he throws in a boat-load of his own contempt for his so-called fellow Jehovah's Witnesses.
If you're a lurking Witness, reading this, all I can say is, with friends like DJ in your midst, who needs enemies?
I can promise you this, nobody on this forum thinks you're stupid and ignorant except your fellow JWs like DJ. Mislead? Sure, but we still will bend over backwards to keep real friendships with you in place. And we will never use a debate about doctrine and chronology to write long tangents about how stupid and mentally handicapped you are. Only your fellow witnesses do that.
So to all you JW lurkers, I know how it feels to finally realize how this religion teaches its constituents to view one another, as exemplified by DJ. But hopefully it won't make you sad, but make you take action - action that will free yourself of the idiocracy that DJ claims to represent. I can already tell by the new posters that register and post, people like DJ, are responsible for the many JWs that move on to real freedom, away from the mindset that has to re-write history to make their beliefs relevant. So for that DJ, we thank you.
