Oh The Irony

    So I sat and suffered through the CLAM tonight.

    Everything was pretty much as dull, repetitious, and simple-minded as I have come to expect, but I was really struck by the mind-numbing idiotic comments made during the part about shunning family.

    Then came the BOOK study (no real Bible use) loaded with self-congratulatory B.S about how WT never has, and never will beg, solicit, or ask for money. I could feel myself beginning to channel the old Tasmanian Devil cartoon character as I listened to that garbage while remembering the JDubya TV shows about how more money was going out than coming in and GIVE MORE. But finally came the most ironic (to me) part of the entire meeting and I could not help bursting out in a loud belly laugh that got me many dirty looks and heavy frowns. They read a letter from the GB asking for $14.00 per member (suggested) and passed a "resolution" to pay that amount. I of course made it obvious that my arms were firmly folded across my chest so there would be no mistake what my feelings were.

    Afterwards I asked someone who is still talking to me if they thought anyone else would get the irony of 30 minutes spent saying JW's do not ask for money followed by them asking for more money. I saw a light go off in their eyes. Maybe....just maybe?

    I'll be watching the people's faces as I visit (unavoidably!) a foreign speaking congregation.

    Yeah, they couldn't have had much more awkward timing....

    Yeah. I thought the same. The BS emanating from the book study and then the letters read out asking for more money. This is a classical example of fickle Watchtower mind set.

    It's no wonder their teachings change so often, particularly when it suits eg the generation change.
