Deliberately Avoiding the "G" and "L" words in their Videos
slimboyfat - "...I've heard JWs say they don't use the word "gay" because it normalises homosexuality."
slimboyfat - "...Society is changing so rapidly on this issue, either of two things must happen:
1. JWs will change their policy and accept gay people in committed relationships as full members.
2. JW policy on this will become so at odds with society that they will be marginalised like the Westboro Baptists or the Klan.
Gosh, I wonder which?
Seriously, though, it's gonna be 2.
I recently attended a meeting with my old JW mom wherein the elder giving the talk actually had the stones to state that "JWs weren't actually 'intolerant' of gays and lesbians; it was the other way around" (paraphrasing, but that's the gist).
It's funny; if you'd asked me 20 years ago if the WTS would someday be on the same page as the fucking Klan, I'd have said "no way".
