So my question is, are they encouraging workplace visits at the meetings? Has common sense completely left their brainwashed minds?
I don't think they are encouraging people to go to people workplaces, but it doesn't surprise me if they did. One way or another I think they are encouraging people to reach out by pretty much any means. They don't respect people's boundaries. They really feel entitled to get into every person's business.
When did it become acceptable to go to one's workplace and engage in a half hour conversation with your tablet in hand discussing scriptures?
It's never been acceptable. Plus I think I should emphasize, it's on us, the ones they pay the visit, to enforce the boundary they are disrespecting. The JWs who know me know way better than even attempting at talking to me, so I don't foresee any event like that happening (for their own sake).
They always want to have the last saying in everything, and they are not going to make people's fading process a graceful one. They always want to be the ones calling the shots. That's the bottom line.
