This has no doubt been covered before and if anyone has any favourite threads on this subject perhaps they could post them here . . .
What are your best one liners/questions to make JW's think?
I had a heated conversation with my mum this weekend and apart from mainly going round in circles (as is often the case with brainwashed cult members) one thing made her stop and I could see that she was having major trouble processing the logic.
I pointed out that God approved of genocide and rape in the Old Testament. She predictably said that Jesus changed everything when he came but when challenged on that with "so God changed his mind about what was right and wrong then?", she paused for a long time and then admitted it didn't make sense and that she struggled with that one.
Also, in the course of the conversation I asked her what she would do if the Governing Body decided to shut down the religion. She looked at me in a "can't compute" kind of way as though it was a totally alien concept and then calmly said "well, I suppose I'd do my own thing". It felt good to put a seed in her head that life goes on without the GB . . .
Another time I plan on throwing in the "so why are there only Marsupials in Australia?" question.
Over to you . . .
