Oh dear, punkofnice, I am so sorry. At least my other half came out of the borg with me, it is just my extended family I have to contend with, and that is frustrating enough so I really feel for you.
Thanks, Tuber, for your excellent analysis of this month's study edition Watchtower which makes me wonder how any reasonably intelligent adult can allow themselves to be taken in by the blatant hypocracy of it all.
This, for instance:-
15(18) Satan wants to silence JWs. He tries to distract and divide them by making them do such things as "gadding about" and forwarding non-essential emails. We have no right to tell other people how to live their lives (must have been pissing themselves laughing as they wrote that). Idle and troublesome behaviour distracts us from kingdom preaching. If we aren't supporting Jehovah and his work, we're supporting Satan.I noticed some of my JW nephews and nieces on facebook getting twitchy a month or so ago because they seemed to think the GB was about to order them to stop using facebook, then they breathed a collective sigh of relief when they realised they could continue on facebook as long as they didn't include stupid things. The fact that several young adults were prepared to stop using facebook, a very important part of their social lives, on the whim of a few faceless elderly men in Broolkyn who they have never met and are very unlikely to, makes a total mockery of their claim "No right to tell other people how to live their lives". The young JWs in question would indeed have stopped if ordered to because they are scared of the consequences if they don't fall in line.
