    Keep your cool. Say you were joking. I've gotten away with some things by saying I was just joking. say He tends to be extreme and that you joke around by calling him a terrorist and nazi. Anthony Morris called the brothers in administration who time the talks "time nazis" during the international convention. Be cordial and nice. Being nice and having a sense of humor gets you out of a lot of sticky situations. They will probably forget to meet with you because they have better things to do with their time besides talk about something that dumb.

    I then compared the extremism of ISIS to how much of a fanatic my JW BIL is.

    You could simply say you were venting about your BIL more than you were attacking the faith. They may counsel you about murmuring, but nothing more.

    Meet with them, and ask them how long must you wait to see so much suffering and dying by the Ebola virus, ISIS, etc. You have a right to feel as you do. I've heard worse statements coming from all sorts of people

    Na, your pretty f*** in far from 'ok'

    sorry, pulp fiction referance.... To you OP, no you are not screwed. Not in the least. 1) even at full face value what you said is nothing more than a shot a your BIL being 'unbalanced'. its not at all a DF'ing offense. Not even close.

    2) the elders most likely rolled their eyes and said 'there there sister worried! We will have a talk with sister yondaime and give her the needed direction. *hang up phone, back to ignoring stupid phone calls*

    3) if you dont feel strong enough to lie (and you should by all means feel free to do so!) then simply nod and agree when they talk. They will think they did their job and you are still in no trouble. The only thing you could possibly say that would get you in hot water from the organization is to admit you dont think its the 'truth'. Short of that, its absolutly nothing. just smile and wave boys, smile and wave (madagascar referance).

    Its a shame the cult does this, makes us sensor ourselves or lie and deceive but dont ever worry about the knagaroo court and dont ever give them power by admitting anything. You were venting about your BIL cause he was a jerk to you yesterday.... Or whatever. Its nothing. Sleep well ;)

    I found the root of your problem. It has 2 parts:

    1. I'm going to meet with them

    2. after the meeting on Sunday

    Your solution is to eliminate #1 and #2.

    You do not have to meet with them. It is your life, your decision.

    Be polite and say "No, I don't meet with you."

    You will feel strengthened.

    To your mum you can say. "Mum, I love you." "What I said was my opinion."

    "My mom has a tendency to overexagerate. She does not listen to the context of what is said, just snippets." Leave it at that....all of us have a mother.

    Either say there's nothng to talk about and refuse the meeting, or else...

    "We were having a discussion about extremism and my mother overheard the last part and got the wrong end of the stick, that's all."

    Then walk away, if pressed for details (unlikely) then say, "what part of extremism dont you understand", and then walk off.

    Whatever you do, do not get into specifics.

    Otherwise just ignore it.
