This is really the key to understanding the upside down nature of JW's "faithful" adherence to murderous policies by the GB.
Were we to substitute the court and the procedure a bit you can quickly see what I mean.
What if it were a court in Malawi making individual Witnesses a "ward" of the court and ordering a political party card on them!
Or, a court in a Muslim country legally forcing a family of JW's to burn all their Watchtower literature and bibles...
The focus is on how far (in such instances) JW's would fight, resist, refuse, raise bloody hell, appeal, sue, etc. to PREVENT such "legalisms" from
taking place! These are CLEARLY actions no JW would normally perform even in the face of death.
But, family members aren't humanly anxious to make martyrs of their loved ones unless they are quite mad to begin with. Sane people (even JW's) will inwardly rejoice at having the burden seemingly lifted from their consciences.
In the case of RAPE JW women are instructed to scream even if overpowered and threatened with death!
Think about it---how is having your child made a ward of the court any less of an "overpowering"?
Am I making myself clear here?
