This was brought up in another thread, but I thought it should have its own thread. Feel free to add your own observations and experience. The JWs are so duplicit, and they rename things to somehow justify their own irrationalities.
It's not a party, it's a get-together!
It's not a shower, it's a Welcome New Baby (or bride) celebration!
It's not a pagan wedding ring, it's a symbol of our love!
It's not a funeral, it's a "memorial talk"!
It's not a Christmas dinner, it's a meal with turkey we eat at Christmas (or Thanksgiving).
and the *worst* - hesitate to even say these:
It's not rape, it's fornication (especially if one did not scream).
It's not a criminal act of child sexual abuse, it's sin.
It's not domestic abuse, it's a matter of needing more subjection and respect for headship.
It's not a life-saving treatment, it's an abuse of blood.
