"There is a friend for everyone in the corporation's clutches" -- Brokeback Watchtower
I just needed to make a separate thread about this.
Forced friends are not friends. As the great Marvin Gaye said, "Smiling faces tell lies." Once you discover that without belief in the Watchtower, you don't actually have much in common and cannot stand the untenable arguments of your old "friends", it's really over.
Once you understand that the congregation's political correctness requires forgiveness even of pedophiles and criminals, you're really forced to square a circle and possibly put yourself or others at risk.
No, thank you. If that is "love" to anyone else, you can keep it.
