A number of JW kids including some that "got out once they truned 18" got baptized recently. I had no idea why. Then I recal a conversation I had with a jw teen from a distant cong that was chaffing a bit under jwism. I ask him why and he sad they cant draft you if you pioneer. So i think the war on terror is motivating the young jws in a simular fashion nam did. A brust of paranoid zeal can turn into sincere devotion after it becomes a habbit.
Also the new draft is rumored to be unisex if it passes. So young sisters are sorta in the same boat. The army has already ran out of fresh troops and is now sending back the first batalions that landed for a second time. They also cut off retirements and lenthened tods. So a draft is really more possible now than ever. I believe this is in the back of more young jws minds so i would expect a temporary surge until we are out of the mid east and a permanent increase of young people if the draft is voted in. I was just sharing a odd phenomenon that seems to be happening.
