This is a rant mainly in response to my wife's reaction to the stupid CLAM meeting last night.
Bear in mind, while I am not sexist, I am also not politically correct.
It is no secret that the women in this organization outnumber the men. Walk into any random kingdom hall and you will see a ratio of roughly 2:1... if not more. "Unbelieving Mates" are husbands 90% of the time.
I looked around the hall last night and saw several middle-aged women there alone. Most of them are married. I watched my wife lap up the new meeting program and later talk about how much she enjoyed it. 'Great', I thought to myself, just when I was making some mental-fading headway with her.
I saw something in her I may have missed before. She wants the org to tell her what to do. She wants the org to tell her she is being a bad girl or good girl. She can't let go of the warm and fuzzies of Jehovah up in the sky looking over her. Like a lot of women, unfortunately, she had (and still has) a bad relationship with her father.
It seems she is using the org to fill that void. I look around the kingdom hall and wonder if the same story isn't true of the other middle-aged women clinging to this org even as they drag in late looking miserable as hell.
By the same token, shame on the GB for exploiting these vulnerable women just so they can mass together their throngs to hang on their every word.
Hey Governing Body... you are duplicitous, self-serving scumbags. You know it. Many many other people know it... Unfortunately for you, some of those people are judges in court rooms. May 2016 bring more lawsuits and more scathing press exposing your hypocrisy and hidden agenda.
