I was just pondering whether JWs are capable of having a calm, in depth discussion about religious or faith topics?
I have just finished listening to a great podcast by "Dogma Debate" (Dan) episode 333. This fantastic, in-depth conversation between a theist and an atheist was a masterful example of how a dignified conversation can take place without it resorting to abruptness or even nastiness.
JWs on the other hand seem incapable of having such discussion without ending up in the following ways:
1)They get dogmatic and defensive if a differing view is presented.
2)If the conversation doesn't go their way, they cut it short saying something like "well, we had better agree to disagree" or the like.
So why the arrogance? Why the defensiveness?
