While I am ashamed of my gullibility, I find the gullibility of some of my older family members astounding. Some were at Bethel during the heyday of Rutherford, and TOLD me about much of the Bethel crap and weird mystical Russel beliefs long before I went. Yet they believed it.......or said they did.
They did say things like "they are just men", "take the Watchtower with a grain of salt", "Rutherford was an Ass and a woman hater" stuff like that.
Odd that they were outwardly loyal. (outwardly- they had retirement accounts).
