Well, I haven't been here in about 5 months. Ever since my ex-pioneer partner and Bethel roommate Roy Baty died.
Looks like I've have missed out on some fun. I'm afraid I haven't read all 2700 post about Lloyd but I think got the jest of what is going on.
All I know is I heard The Watchtower Bible and Truck Society gave Lloyd some serious money and an all expense paid trip to Thailand just to shut him up.....not really I guess he did it for free.
Not that it matters but I never really like him for a couple of reasons.
1. The title of his book is a lie. "The reluctant Apostate" He loves his activism, since this is his only source of income. In fact if something ever did happened to his chief adversary he would be screwed. He would have to go out and get a real job.
2. If he really wanted to help people with their perception of the WBT society he would care about what people thought about him personally and his physical presentation. He looks like someone who just spent the night under a bridge. He might has well put tattoos on his face. He looks like someone who doesn't give a shit. And what is with all this stupid "Star Wars" stuff he decorates his office with? He comes off as someone who is mentally about 15 years old.
3 If you want to talk the talk you better walk the walk. If you want to attack a hypocritical religion. Then you have no choice but to be squeaky clean yourself. As we know, just like the egomaniac leaders of the religion he is attacking its easy to start buying into your own bull shit...."that's the ticket"
Which brings us to number 4.
He even looks like Judge Rutherford,
5. So just like all false religions the end never will justify the means.
Rest in peace Lloyd you played right into theirs hands of the Society's perceptions of what they want their followers to believe what apostates look and act like.
