leavingwt on old man river: Mormon example: there was an exellent program on PBS dealing with mormon judicial hearings and shunning. The statement of the LDS spokesman was that " we recognize that LDS INTELECTUALS ARE THE GREATEST THREAT TO OUR FAITH". at least they have the money problem fixed with Romney et al giving 10%. ---- In one meeting with wt representatives and me, they had this line of proof: "You are clever, the wt says apostates are clever, so you must be an apostate!"
WHat I gather from comments here, hard line JWs are no match intelectually for contribitors here, but emotions can get you to say things that lead to (temporary) discomfort. peace.
