Like I posted on the other thread it is the fake ones that dont. The ones that set up harmful policies. The ones that enforce them. I had a great time as a JW and it just isnt for me. I figure they need to drop the shunning thing and they will move fairly into the mainstream. Dont get me wrong christianity is still a dangerous and divisive force in this world. But most people are nominal whatever anyhow. Same thing with JWs..get rid of the shunning crap and a lot of improvements stand to be made.
But still it is like that movie with jack nicolson...hmm whats it called..thinking..thinking..ah ! the ONLY GOOD LOVE STORY EVER..(cause jack was in it) As Good As It Gets. She said...but there were moments of INCREDIBLE kindness....
For me it is those moments that make the JWs I think of totally kick ass! I mean like one time I was stranded in cleveland. We called a brother, 20 something. He came and got us no problem! No charge!
And as I posted when I first started a time I was dead broke and a bunch of witnesses handed me an envelope stuffed with cash. Thanks...they rock. They didnt have to do that.
When folks say witnesses are just wicked they dont care, ok maybe true about some of them, probably true about more than a few, many? But many are totally rockin. Thats why i say TRUE JWs dont molest kids. Same as I say true catholics dont. or true _____....The elders at Bowens appeal hearing nodded and vocalized agreement with me on that. Surprise. But thats what I am trying to hold onto. Get the ones that are TRUE JWs to realize that in their midst are INFILTRATORS..PRETENDERS...and those pretenders are in the hyghest positions.
But most are average joes like me. Abused, and just tryin to do their best. and I think they totally rock.
