I think that's a fair comment.
Not to all. I did not join the JWs. I had that organization shove down my throat since the day I was born. That was not something I chose to join. And so is the case of all those born in. We were not "fooled"; we were raised to believe that crap.
As for "god" outside the JWs, personally I can't care less one way or another. I decided that if there's such a wonderful god that loves me and has an important message, he should personally do the leg work and talk to me. That's not too much to ask. No 2000 year old books, no knocking on my door, no sending his son to die for me, no church, none of that --it that has caused more harm to humanity than good.
