Just went to the assembly yesterday and during the final talk the circuit overseer said:
'Sure, there are some adults baptised here and there, but do you want to know something wonderful? The vast majority of those getting baptized are teens and preteens!' (audience then applauded)
I thought it was ridiculous for two reasons.
1: Obviously, he's putting in a good light the trapping of children in a cult.
2: It's almost hilarious that he put a positive spin on something that's so mundane. Of COURSE children of JWs are more likely to become JWs, that's how the world works with regard to religion/politics no matter where you go for the most part. Children haven't grown up and formed their own true opinions yet, so naturally they're part of the culture of their parents. That most baptisms are born-in minors only proves that the preaching work isn't terribly effective. Then when you take away all the adults getting baptized that were exposed to JWs as a child but left for a time, the amount of 'converts' in the truest sense of the word is miniscule indeed.
