Back off, Jack. You are not the GB and I am not your whimpering little slave. Nobody whacks me with impunity.
You also - though obviously free of the cult, good for you - need to let go of the ruthless literal-mindedness that the Borg instilled in you.
I am well aware of all the enormous hurt, pain, and grief the Unfaithful and Wicked Servant has perpetrated these many years upon millions of unsuspecting JW dupes. I was one. And it nearly KILLED me too.
I won't go into the details of my life on this board but this beautifully written account by a young brother in Australia perfectly sums up the intensity of my own suffering and near-suicide too: http://www.freeminds.org/stories/growingupgay.htm
So again I say, Back off bud. I am a wounded veteran with deep, deep scars, and you are messing with the wrong guy. Get out of my face.
When I said the newfangled interpretation was funny, I meant it is so patently, mindlessly absurd as to be ridiculous on its face - no one but a small child or a baptized publisher could possibly read it without laughing out loud.
Which is how grown-up people put things concisely, in a single word, instead of having to stretch them out in page after page of booooooring detail, regurgitated word for freakin' word every Sunday morning. I daresay many other ex-dupes on this board and elsewhere agree with me.
But I forgive you, knowing as I do how long, long, long it takes to overcome the brainwashing of this evil cult. Now go and sin no more, bro.
