    A Circuit Overseer or a member of the Gibbering Body is giving a talk about demonism and he says the following, "There was an elder in a congregation in California who let his 8-year-old daughter watch Disney movies that involved witches, gremlins, magic, and sorcery. Many may feel that they are harmless movies and are just entertainment. Well, the 8-year-old daughter actually brought a blue smurf doll to the Public talk and Watchtower Study. When the name Jehovah was mentioned by the brother giving the talk the smurf doll jumped to the floor and ran to the back of the hall."

    How many JDubs would actually believe that happened? I would have to say that since it was stated by a CO or GB Pope that 50% to 60% would actually believe that it happened.

    What do you think?

    I would have to check with Papa Smurf to see if it really happened. I mean, he’s probably the wisest Smurf, right?

    I remember being told this story, or some variation of it, when I was very young. This story is “the truth”.

    Back when the whole smurf thing came out, we had some water glasses with their image stamped on them. We got them at McDonald's with a child's meal. No biggie to us.

    But, our CO and wife stayed with us. They were horrified. Don't you know... ??? so we threw them in the trash.

    What she said didn't make any sense to us but it was a contentious point with no room for debate.

    Maybe the whole smurf thing was one of Tony “tight pants” Morris’ genius ideas.

    Their have been so many of these Demon associated with material things over the years its hard to keep up with them.

    Sparlok ,Smurfs , Items bought at second hand /Op shops , kiss records , Heavy Metal recordings the list goes on and on and on.

    Jehovah`s Witnesses are a very superstitious lot :

    ,One elder related to us"how a brother bought a figurine from a second-hand shop and he became troubled by the Demons and when he threw it away across the street onto a vacant lot it bounced right back into his home again"

    I believe these same type of story`s do the rounds of many other fundamental /last days /end times religions.

    So J.W`s are lumped right in with Christendom in this regard.

    If you search the forum, you should be able to find a thread discussing the origin of this ridiculous episode of JW history that I remember from my childhood. Something to do with a supposedly haunted Toys“R”Us store if I remember correctly.
