I am stunned by Candace's huge court victory. It is overdue. I have been reading comments on JVN, Huffington, San Jose Mercury, NBC, and other sources. I spoke with a Jesuit attorney, and I have also called some JWs who were in service this Saturday to get feedback.
I was a little surprized by comments from "average Joes" who simply lumped JWs in with Catholics priests. My Jesuit co-worker said "your people are just trying to out-do priests!"
According to current JWs, the Sat AM donut shop talk was all about this today. One JW told me the comments were moronic, ie: " Was she in good standing?" " Those jurors must hate JWs!" " He wasn't even an Elder"- He asked:" if she was a wordly person would that make it OK ?" He was met with blank stares.
I am certain my mother will say " This just proves Satan and the WOORLLLY people are persecuting JWs, cause we are at the tipppppppppppppy ennnnnnddddddd of this system."
What are you hearing ?
