I agree with you and have no sympathy for those older ones! I remember very smug attitudes they had. I always felt it was so uncharitable of them to be wishing so many people be destroyed so they can have their "paradise".
I have a slightly different reason for having no pity.
Some of these people came into the religion AFTER they earned their living. Some had worldly husbands who worked 40 years to provide them with a pension - but, yet they criticized younger people there like myself who worked. Where did these people think money came from??
Getting older isn't easy for any of us, but at least I don't have the mindset that everybody else is supposed to "disappear" so I can have my paradise with tame animals and endless fruit platters!
