So it is 7:30 am here in California and my dog needs to go out. So I take her out and while I wait for her to be finished my JW neighbor is walking on the sidewalk across the street and quite unexpectedly decides to cross the street towards me. She has her JW bag and magazines in her hands. Since she has never preached to me before, I just didn't think I was a target. Well, I was wrong. So she starts by asking me if I had been to the three day assembly. I responded in a natural voice "No". I was quite ready to pretend to be ignorant of ttatt, to be nice and play along with whatever she said, but I just couldn't hold it. After a short time she tells me: "You should go to the assembly, it is beautiful and wonderful, especially Sunday's meeting, which deals with the last days". This was the point where I had to open my mouth and asked, "Do you believe that we live during the last days". Her anticipated response was "Yes", My retort " I don't". which she followed with a comment "What a pity" ("que lastima" in Spanish) My response, "don't pity me, I pity you". Rather than finish what I wanted to say, I was able to keep to myself the reasons why I pitied her. Nonetheless, she realized then that our conversation was pretty much over, so she said good bye and walked away.
Does any of you get bother as I do by these arrogant, condescending attitude of Christians who are prompt to pity you for not holding their wacky beliefs. I haven't killed a human yet, but if anything can trigger such a feeling is precisely those words.
