I was born in but long time faded. I think I hold current JWs to a higher standard than they now maintain.
Here's the thing; my father is very old, in his nineties and been a Jdub for over 60 years and even made it to Elder till he got too old.On a recent visit my siblings and Dad were saying how wonderful that Veterans Affairs were. Dad served in the army in WW2 before drinking the Koolaid. Any how Veterans Affairs came around and assessed his house and fitted him out with hand rails, auto hose reel and electric stand me up chair. Adjustable bed is next. All on free loan until he passes. He has also been on free health care since retirement. Thank you Aus Govt and Veterans Affairs. I have no problem with looking after ex service people but I have long thought it odd that they (staunch JWs) would accept this help with pride and Dad even said "I got shot at and caught Malaria so my conscience is clear".
What happened to pacifism and "no part of the world" etc?
I did not pursue the subject as there is no glory in arguing with frail aged people. Just bemused that's all. Any thoughts people?
