Just read some of this latest Awake on the org's webshite.
It begins by talking about the 'supernatural' - wizards, witches, vampires, etc. - their popularity and why they might appeal to people. Then it goes on to state the WT belief that someone is 'behind it'.
Now, I like a few horror/scary films - when I was a kid, I always actually liked being a bit scared by them, TBH.
The Silence of the Lambs, A Nightmare on Elm Street (1984), The Ring, The Witch, The Thing (1982) and a few others are all great, IMO.
They are just genres and subgenres of film, that's all. I'm obviously not gonna re-enact some of the scenes I've seen, as if I were some mindless f**kwit.
Obviously the WT skips over the fact that horror films, witches, and vampires aren't real and pumps out their own belief (completely unsupported by reality or evidence) that Satan is behind these things.
I guess what p1sses me off is that it's just another harmless area of entertainment that's off-limits for obedient, manipulated JWs. Every facet of their lives are controlled by cosseted middle-aged and elderly men!
Now that I've got that off my chest, I think I'll watch A Nightmare on Elm Street. They don't know what they're missing.
