"I hate Jehovah's Witnesses and everything they stand for. I will hate Jehovah's Witnesses until the day that I die. "
Everything you said summed up exactly how I feel, and why. It's just kick, kick, kick, all the time. Just when you're able to recover from one bashing, they find a new reason to kick you all over again. It permeates every corner of your life so you can't escape it or stay away from it.
As mean and despicable as the JWs are, they're (only) playing "follow the leader", and acting in harmony with what's been drummed into their heads as "pleasing Jehovah", even though it goes against ANYTHING they would normally have done if NOT for being a JW.
I HATE what they DO, and would like to slap some common sense into my daughter (the Elderette), but basically I know that it's the ones that TEACH this unbelievable behavior to the rank & file JWs that are to blame.
Let's face it, the sheep are so duped and deceived that they CAN'T see how hateful they ARE! And THAT'S even MORE frightening than the behavior itself!
