Since the overlapping generations doctrine was introduced, I have found the JWs I know to be uncharacteristically silent on the subject. I can't remember hearing a single Dub try to defend this idiocy. But that all ended recently. I was at a party (get together in JW speak) and an uber dub sister pipes up about how grateful she is of Brother Splane's recent explanation of the overlapping generations. She said that she had been foggy on how this doctrine works but that the graphs and charts really pulled it all together for her, and that the example of Freddy Franz being overlapped was just what she needed to clear up her understanding. In her words, it now "all makes perfect sense". Of course the rest of the dubs in the room had no choice but agree, albeit with little enthusiasm.
I never cease to be amazed at how people can gobble up garbage and call it filet mignon. I'm starting to think that maybe the GB is not as clueless as I once thought. They obviously know their audience and realize that sooner or later, this insane doctrine will be accepted. Shame on them, though.
