So at the PhD today with my wife and me, and in slowly getting to the heart of matters (like peeling an onion if you ask me), the dialogue in part went like this:
PhD: If it came down to it, would you take a bullet in the head instead of giving up membership in your organization?
Wife: Absolutely, I would die for my faith.
PhD: No, that's not what I asked. You can keep your faith in God and your personal relationship with him, its yours to have, hold, love, and cherish. What I asked is would you take a bullet in the head vs. renouncing membership in the WT organization?
Wife: Absolutely, I would die for what I would believe.
PhD: What about you Brian? Same question.
Brian: Where do I sign?
I married SUCH an intelligent woman. She knows how to love from the heart, how to care for and protect me and the kids. She is giving and unselfish. A deep thinker. Thrifty. Loves music, nature, wine, good food, the peace of sitting at the front of the plane vs. the back, walks on the beach, making things grow...I mean the list goes on and on. But she would would watch her family be executed vs. renouncing her membership in a 100 year old man made organization.
Good god almighty, somebody help me wrap my angry mind around this.
