What's a word that describes the way Witnesses behave as a group?
My first thought was delusional.
Then I read DOCs word sanctimonious - making a show of being morally superior to other people.synonyms:self-righteous, holier-than-thou, pious, pietistic, churchy, moralizing, preachy, smug, superior, priggish, hypocritical,insincere;informalgoody-goody
but the winner [of my top three] might be orphancrows word in another thread
adj: serving no useful purpose; having no excuse for being
adj: producing no result or effect
Delusional is my best opinion.
Because (including me for a long time) they are completely ok with accepting anything the WT says as fact without any evidence scriptural or otherwise to back it up. Not only that - they do not view as credible ANY outside information, whether from the Medical community, or Science, or Archaeology, or History, or other Religious scholars.
Reality is aborted for the comforting thought that the GB are always right no matter what.
literalists, fundies, zombies (sorry DJS, I know that you have dibs on that word), party poopers and... meanies, bullies, fear mongerers, zealots, etc.
You had it with insular. It is neither negative nor positive. Go with that.
Here' one I thought about, and it's ''cliquey''.
If you're not in some ''cliques'' in the congregations, your life can be HELL!!!
Has anyone said
