    Joe : I don’t quite know how to tell you this dad.

    Dad : What daughter

    Joe : Dont get mad or offensive, but there was a documentary that aired a few nights ago on prime time TV in the USA concerning the JWs, and there was some very nasty stuff mentioned, and it certainly wasn’t positive toward the organisation.

    Dad : We can expect that we will be persecuted in the time of the end.

    joe : yes that is true. The reason I am telling you this is just to pass on the information so you can be prepared for when the documentary hits this country. However you take this as persecution or an attack by Satan then that is ok just as long as I have informed you and you are mentally prepared.

    Dad : ok thanks. Apparently the government has extended it scop into child sex abuse to include religions.

    Joe : Yes dad. I knew about this a couple of days ago. That’s another topic I wanted to mention to you too. The JWs are probably going to be the star attraction in this, and I have a feeling it won’t be positive.

    Dad : yes , and the bible says that in the time of the end that your enemies will be members of your own family.

    conversation ends.

    The purpose was just to inform and preparedness, not for a lesson in TTATT. Quite frankly my father is better of believing its all a conspiracy and staying in the religion.

    Very frustrating for you, at least you tried. Some people just don't seem bright enough to see a cult even when it's right under their nose.

    A loving way of doing things, well done.

    I think there are a number of people who deserve to stay in the Cult, either because the harm to them would be too much if they woke up, or because they are arrogant fools and deserve to wallow in their ignorance ! I guess your dad comes into the first category, like most of my JW family, they have given their lives to it, and to wake up would be devastating.

    I do hope that a good number of J.W's do watch the programme ,and wake up.

    "We can expect that we will be persecuted in the time of the end."

    Even when it all goes against them the are still fulfilling Bible prophecy.

    The attack of Ma of!

    Being exposed for covering the sexual abuse of children is not religious persecution.

    They seem to be confused about the difference between persecution and prosecution.

  • Diogenesister

    It really irritates me this whole persecution thing. Is a doctor saving your childs life persecuting you or your child?


    Then a policeman/lawyer prosecuting paedophiles and protecting YOUR CHILDREN from paedophiles is also not persecution.

    Maybe say "they say they are protecting jehovahs witnesses from paedophiles within the organization, Dad"
