“Magnum”: “Just think about it. A 15-year-old is not old enough to clean bathrooms on his own, yet he's old enough to have the knowledge, experience, understanding, reasoning ability, discernment, etc. necessary to make the important decision to get baptized and sign his life away to an organization.”
That certainly puts things into perspective. And just think how important age is in consent, especially sexual consent. Think of how much trouble a person could get into for having any kind of sexual activity with a minor who is even just a year or two under the legal age of consent. People take that so seriously, along with the legal age for driving, voting, smoking, getting tattooed, or have someone’s ears pierced. No, no, no. . . . But, making a decision which could ultimately end up severing the child’s ties to their own freekin’ family, well, they’re still just dunking those wee ones just as fast as they can – I suppose to show the world how JWs are such a progressive and thriving organization!
