Society Tests Witness Stupidity

    Some years ago, I knew a brother with mental problems.
    Oddly enough, he managed to own a house and car on a
    disability pension. I wondered how he survived on his
    own. Visiting his house, I found that he made written
    lists each day -- like this:

    1. take shower
    2. use deodorant
    3. comb hair

    Now compare this technique, that aids the mentally
    challenged, with recent Kingdumb Ministries.
    Like the May article "A Special Interchange of
    Encouragement". It has a box in the middle to order
    Witlesses to:

    "Plan to attend all three days

    Ask for time off from work (really, I have to ask!!?)

    Reserve lodging at the convention city (what? no tent?)

    Arrange transportation to the convention" (no hitchhiking?)

    but that's not all!

    The back of every KM now has exact words to say to offer
    each particular issue of the Awake and Watchtower!
    You don't have to do any of that bothersome thinking
    - just memorize and repeat every word at the door exactly
    as written!

    Of course, this is on top of the platitude laden, vacuous
    magazines themselves.


    Will they have to issue lists to each Witless saying:

    1. take shower
    2. apply deodorant
    3. comb hair
    4. go out in service...........?

    I swear there must be guys in the Service Dept who
    secretly feel the utmost contempt for this tired flock.
    There just doesn't seem to be any END or BOTTOM to this
    'dumbing down' of Jehovah's Witnesses

    by their own leaders....

    Hmmmmm maybe those will be on the next written review?

    I'm surprized they don't remind them to "wipe your ass."

    I don't remember which came first, but there was the phonographs
    and some sort of 'presentation card' that was handed to the householder. This was in the 30's if I recollect properly.
    (I remember playing my grandfather's WTS phonograph).

    Both of those were true 'no-brainers' (if you could get the phonograph 'cocked and loaded').

    Maybe the resurrection has already occurred in the Writing Department.

    The WT failed prophecies and the way they would talk down to the average Jdub was the 2 big reasons I left the Borg. The books and magazines now are written mainly for the lowly educated 3rd world countries. Most of the Watchtower articles is just recycled baby pabulum for the mind. All I have to do to get a good snooze is sit in a KH for an hour.

    I saw a KM a couple of years back - I was truely shocked at how inane and stupid it was! Here they were giving word for word presentations, I mean, they always gave you examples but now they are straight up telling JWs to "Say this at the door". And there's one every month. No need to think at all! And they talk about having the 'meat' of the word. All I've seen over the past 10 years is recycled baby formula.

    The JW world really does consist of brain-numbing routine now.

    God, they are a bunch of mental midgets.

    I went to the Service meeting/Ministry school a couple months ago. I couldn't handle it all the way through. Had to leave early. It felt so good that I could do that now. Boring with a capital Bullshit.

    They were called Testimony Cards. They had a printed message on
    them for the householder to read. The householder was supposed
    to hand them back, but many times would keep them thinking
    the J DUB was deaf.

    Went to a service meeting in a hall in the midwest two years ago after years of not attending. Sample of the question-and-answer session:

    Witnesses should expend their energies witnessing to all until Armageddon.

    Q. What should witnesses expend?
    A. Their energies witnessing.

    Q. To whom?
    A. To all.

    Q. Until when?
    A. Armageddon.

    It was a long night.

    They forgot to add "Never think for yourself as all in Brooklyn will do that for you"
