My JW girlfriend (I know that's a topic in and of itself) is sick and confined to bed. Yesterday a Pioneer lady dropped by with a bunch of magazines and an eight audio cassette tape library of the same name as the title to this thread. Eight tapes in a special, titled, plastic folder/binder to hold them? Jeez, what is such a major topic? And she didn't take any money for it.
I guess my thoughts and questions on this are: Can they count time and/or the placement of the magazines? (My G/F is baptized) WTF can take 8 audio cassettes to say? How can these able-bodied people in good conscience stop by to see (for all of about 10 minutes) a very sick and disabled woman who can't get out of a bed by herself and expect her to (and sadly I'm sure she will!) buy into this bullshit? No matter how "close she draws" to jehovah, he ain't gonna get her outta the bed.
Anything -- anything -- that goes right is to jehovah's credit. Anything bad and he never gets "called on the carpet" for it. You can't win (and jehovah can't lose). I was so close to asking if my G/F would be able to levitate outta the bed after listening but I didn't want to cause a major scene, panic and terror amongst the true believers. I made a reply once to a comment my G/F made about "spiritual food" by telling her next time she wanted me to bring her something to eat I would defer to jehovah instead of getting her anything to eat since I am just a human. It didn't play well with her! I've learned my lesson.
But 8 tapes!? Holy cow I hope she doesn't want to listen when I visit! Has anyone else seen or listened (been forced to listen? ) to this massive production?
