I am new to JW dissidents. A couple of weeks ago I created a post asking what attempts have been made in the past to organize some opposition. Personally, I don't feel it would be fruitful to challenge the WT First Amendment benefits. The reports from Europe, though, show inroads. Has anyone thought of meeting with Senators and Reps at the federal and state level to lobby for more critical thinking skills in public school? They have strong defenses as a religion but a neutral campaign might work. Other orgs. may share our interest in stopping cults.
A public affairs type approach, PAs, talk show appeareances to raise consciousness against all cults. I'm assuming this has been done in the past. People are always complaining about the WT's legal department. They have expertise and ready memos b/c they are a repeat player. It is their full time job. Everyone here must have special skills or an idea where the WTS is vulnerable. It strikes me that rather than complain about the First Amendment, which I feel is a good thing, the same results may be achieved by going in another direction.
The Hassan type of thing. Perhaps not emphasize doctrine but the Kafkaesque encounters Jehovah's Witnesses have with the WTBTS.
What do others think?
