I can’t imagine they are still doing this. They have already reached ridiculous heights with their presumptuousness.
Back when I was “studying” with the JWs, my very self-righteous, rather arrogant conductor told me the story about the arrests of those JW guys.
They said it was a fulfillment of a prophecy and they showed me the scripture...🙄 I didn’t buy it but (of course) I kept my thoughts to myself. Were I to voice any doubt, I would receive put-downs and veiled insults relating to my young age, ignorance, etc.
I also didn’t buy it about some assembly somewhere having some major significance.
I ALSO didn’t buy it when they said I should quit my full time decent job and pursue housecleaning because “better people than me have done housecleaning”🙄 Thankfully, I resisted this!
Later on, when I had several major rude awakenings, all this was added to the list. After the 1995 thing, the “fader” door was waiting for me!
