    I can think of all kinds of amazing things to do to unsuspecting JWs.
    I always come back to, 'why'?
    It's a wasting of time, the way I see it.
    Think back to how you would have reacted.
    I'd seen and heard many apostates before I'd awoken to TTATT.
    It had ZERO effect.

    Thinking back as a brain washed dub this would have just made my resolve stronger that this is an act of Satan to test my faith.

    I second kairos, I looked at all apostates as nutcases and it had no effect on my beliefs at the time, plus just disrespectful. I allow JW's to believe what they want without trying to influence them, as I don't want them pushing their beliefs down my throat either, even thought I used to be one.

    It does take away from our argument that we would like them to respect our right to believe whatever we want to believe, when we can't even respect their rights to believe what they want to believe.

    Well on that note, there was one protester outside a convention who sticks out to me. No, it wasn't the guy with a megaphone cussing at us. It was a man who said something I don't quite remember, and then he said, "Challenge the organization."

    At the time, I thought for a second that that was so arrogant. How DARE you challenge them... And then I caught myself and I was like, wait no why wouldn't you? What's wrong with challenging them? Isn't that why we have Questions From Readers? Don't our beliefs get refined over time?

    Whoever you are, if you're here and you were protesting at Qualcomm in San Diego some time in the last decade, it helped.

    But yeah, attacks just feed the instigators and victim complex.

    Considering the number of victims this organization turns over it would seem justified in some cases to "give it back" as it were.

    I would say even engaging them on the street would feed their persecution complex so what can a person do to open these people's eyes to how silly they are? It's hard to learn the truth about "The Lie", then sit idle waiting for it to collapse.
