    When a series of articles came out in the WT magazine in the '60's about demons, yes, I was scared. Reading all those experiences of people harassed by the demons. I was afraid to go to bed at night, or take a bath and I was a teenager!!

    I was more afraid of Jehovah than any demon.

    Flower, I too was "afraid" in 1963 when the demon articles came out. I was just a kid and my mother attributed EVERYTHING to the demons. Anything questionable? BURN it!

    I was afraid of Demons after watching scary movies, so I would put the videotape outside and lock the doors. Just felt better sleeping that way.

    Hubby was sometimes afraid to buy stuff at garage sales. He was tought that the people who lived there could have been into demons and they would come with the items we bought. (whatever)

    I was afraid to walk into a religious building for fear I would be bombarded by them somehow.

    Used to feel like during Christmas at the mall, that warm fuzzy feeling I had inside from the music and lights was really demonic, the demons were just floating around that mall!

    oh brother, what a waste of thoughts!

    As a kid, I was scared of the dark and the unknown like anyone else, but was never particularily terrified of demons. In fact, the very idea of demons fascinated me. I wouldn't have minded seeing or meeting one, just to prove to myself that spirits really do exist. The Watchtower articles on them only made me curious. I suppose part of it is because my parents never really tried to instill a fear of demons in me.

    There was one time when I sitting alone in the living room, reading a book, and it was storming outside. I distinctly heard (at least it seemed that way at the time) a raspy sounding voice whisper my name. OMG was I ever terrified! I must have broke the sound barrier running up to my room. Later on, I decided that it was probably just the wind, but ended up wishing that the voice would come back, I was scared but fascinated as well.

    Also, I don't know why, but I always had this feeling that if there were demons lurking in my house, I could beat the snot out of them. After all, how powerful could they really be if they had to hide in old furniture and smurf dolls?

    Well that vktoria woman has some demons of her own, doesn't she? She can't seem to keep the alcohol at bay and then does stupid things like getting involved and marrying a jailbird who will never see the free world from our side of the bars ever again!

    It so upsets me that she would encourage you to get rid of my things, that she blasted me so often. All the while she has some owning up to do herself after the "panty party" she had with Brick.

    Thanks, sns, for not throwing my stuff away!
