I saw that deferential treatment of the few JW ‘anointed’ I encountered years ago.
I was rather turned-off by this creature worship nonsense. I was also put off by the cantankerous attitude that some of them had - as thought people were expected to tolerate them.
When I finally found out the truth about the “Truth”, I was so angry and disgusted that I tore to shreds a personally inscribed songbook and some brochure one of these ‘esteemed’ individuals gave me when I was baptized. I didn’t even want it around anymore.
