Thought I'd bump this up as I noticed several people bumped and commented on it 8 days ago. been busy so it slipped by me ! Thanks !
CALEBS AIRPLANE - Exactly. Very sick cult, in more ways than one !
TIKI- That's disgusting the elders wouldn't let the EMT use his medical services on the young man. Another case of elders and WT powermongers thinking they know better- when they don't. The older lady who died after doing her assembly part ? I wonder if you know me ?? I had an older lady die on my shoulder on the stage giving an assembly part ! We carried her off the stage ! Wow. Unless this sort of thing has happened more times than we know. What year did the incident take place that you heard about ? I'm wondering if it was the incident I was involved with ?
MAMOCHAN 13- Well, I agree that at a large gathering like a graduation or even an JW assembly with thousands of people if somebody has a medical incident in the audience it might not be appropriate to stop the whole proceedings- however - I feel it's a different situation if somebody has a medical emergency while on the stage or platform who is involved in the continuing of the program - I feel it's inhumane to ignore the medical crisis and continue on while nothing has happened. Just my take.
JWS- I'm sure this may happen at corporate meetings if someone has a medical emergency, and I agree the person should be helped in a private setting especially for the comfort of the victim. I can understand a corporate meeting continuing once the person is helped out medically , but it's a different situation if the person has a coronary on the stage and nothing is mentioned about it at all by an elder conducting the part.
D- Yeah, I 've seen JWs have seizures at meetings as well. I've felt sorry for them and have tried to assist to get them to a private area.
SLEEPING BEAUTY- Well, don't berate yourself my friend, you didn't know any better when you were a JW in how to handle your mom's situation. Many of us were controlled by the WT society to be somewhat dismissive of medical emergencys. The main thing is you recognize it now and you are free of that strange JW belief system.
MC RUBBERMALLET- It sounds like you saw some medical emegencies handled pretty efficiently so thats good. I wish it was true everywhere though. Except the guy who kept wanting to give his talk- they should have got him off the stage and gave him a rest.
WHATHAPPENED- Wow. It's great that your husband helped his mom after she fell, but it's amazing no one got out of their seat to offer to help ! I think thats the point I'm making with this thread that normal humane reactions are discouraged by the WT society's mentality that " the show must go on ". Really strange
