Your above comment about showing the lurkers the weakness of Bleep's (The Borg Party Line) arguments is the reasons I've been steering people who know little of the JW's to loyalist sites like JustJW's, and JWzone, as well al posts by Bleep, You Know, and comforter on this site. What this does, is to show your everyday Joe and Jane out there how the JW's really feel about them and "This system of things". I also show them how they feel about those who disagree with their policies, and every last one of them has peen really pissed off about how arrogant, and full of themselves these people who show up on their doorsteps really are.
One of the guys at work that I showed some of these threads and selected posts to, came up to me on Monday to tell me how he got a visit from the friendly neighborhood JW's that Saturday. Instead of just telling them "No thank you" he started asking them about how they felt about molestation in the congregations, as well as how they feel about how they treat people who once agreed with them but no longer do. He said they turned from "Diabetic coma inducing sweetness" to being downright rude and telling him how he didn't know what he was talking about. His comment to me was: "Man what a bunch of freaky people. They're kind of scary."
So larc, keep up the good work of pointing these things out. Brick by brick, piece by piece, this sort of information being brought to the awareness of people outside of the Borg will tear down the Watchtower with the voice of reason and logic.
And finally to my cousin who DA'd a little over a week ago who now lurks on this board : Hang in there dude, your in good company. Thanks for the insight and ideas, and STOP LURKING and post something. I think your ideas have value, and I'm sure others will as well. Besides I'm sure the reason you DA'd will bring a few sorely needed laughs.
Pain is inevitable, suffering is optional.
