A lot of religious folks can have an open-minded discussion about their beliefs without getting defensive. Some can actually consider things from another point of view and point out the validity in the other person's point. What do you think causes the closed-mindedness in some? Obviously, a lot of JWs may just be scared to think/speak in a semi-detrimental way about their religion. Apart from that, though, what do you think are the differences in mindset here, in regard to religious folks in general? Are the closed-minded ones really only holding on tenuously to their faith? Is it because they just hate other ideas? Is it because they feel self-important due to belonging to a faith they consider superior?
Just random musings I've had recently. What are your thoughts?
