I smell roast Chook, too, but it's a sweet-smelling aroma from a noble sacrifice.
To them, any who are not eagerly lapping up the drivel, nonsense, & cult propaganda coming from the org are either weak or evil.
At first, they might tend to view us as being, weak, puny, sickly, indecisive lost souls in need of help from them in their in lofty positions of strength. They condescendingly desire to lower themselves to our pitiful positions and lift us out of despair.
If we don't accept that condescending, insulting offering and keep our mouths shut and crawl back to the org and its magnificent governing body, then we are classified as being evil.
They cant'/won't accept the fact that many of us have done intelligent, objective analysis and are not at all weak. I'm glad you told that elder what you did. I'm tired of handling them with care. The failures and faults and wrongs of JWdom are becoming more and more obvious, and I'm becoming less and less patient with and tolerant of them.
