Two ladies came to my door asking for deaf people. It was a wham-bam-thank-ya man type of approach, they seemed eager to get to the next door.
All I gathered from their presentation, if I were just a normal householder, was that they were from some sort of religious group (they did not give their name) and that they wanted me to freely give out names and phone numbers of the deaf friends I know. I said I didn't know any deaf people and they were on their way.
I knew exactly what was happening, but for most people it would just be an odd break in their daily routine. Deaf people? Huh.
It's obvious to me now that the deaf are prime targets for the Watchtower formula. They are physically segregated from the rest of the world and probably have many questions that can only be answered by people who know their dialect of sign language. Their must be more desperate souls dwelling in the deaf community possibly looking for an ideology to cling to for hope and strength.
The problem is that the Watchtower is the last group they really want to see.
