Saw this article on Slate.
It got me thinking - the WTS are certainly providing lots of ammunition for spoofing. Talks about tight pants, singing trolleys, rubber faced buffoonery from Lett.....
What if we start encouraging JWs to laugh at their leadership, instead of kowtowing in reverential awe?
From the article:
The idea was really very simple. As we chatted, someone kept talking about how Milošević only won because he made people afraid, and someone else said that the only thing that could trump fear was laughter. It was one of the wisest things I’ve ever heard. As Monty Python skits have always been up there right with Tolkien for me, I knew very well that humor doesn’t just make you chuckle—it makes you think.
I think a lot of JWs are wanting to laugh - maybe with a little encouragement, they'll see that the "spirit anointed" GB are just a bunch of old, tired, dull men with nothing to offer. Once the fear is gone, the hold is released.
