As long as you're not planning to do something that could physically harm someone, then GO FOR IT!
posters, taking a public stand against a CULT that destroys families
and literally kills people with its no-blood policy is not even remotely
similar to interrupting an Easter service at a mainstream church
because you don't believe in the trinity.

keep us posted if you go through with your plans (I hope to God you
do). I promise to have your back if they try to pile up on you again.

Point 2: What the members of the congregation will see is an exJW getting up and disrupting their most holy of evenings. Which is exactly how the org paint exJWs.
Point 3: They dont know they're in a cult.
Point 4: This will be remembered for years to come as "how close we must be to the end because we're being persecuted by Satans world".
If you wish to make a point then take a sip of the wine and a piece of the bread. Many fundamental Christians do when they attend because they genuinely believe they have a heavenly reward.
