A number of people of late have noticed the concilliatory stance I take towards the Jehovah's Witnesses -- both as individuals and even as an organization. They have quite rightly pointed out that I appear to "defend" the organization and it's members from attacks that I feel are unwarranted or unnecessary. Too often, I feel, this forum becomes a gripe session in which mighty ex-JW throngs feel the need to paint the organization or individual JWs as totally devoid of any good qualities whatsoever. Little attempt is ever made of trying to see things from any perspective other than one of vengeful hatred towards the Society. I can find no better name than to call some threads nothing more than apostate muckracking.
And so, I try and balance things out as best I can. I have attempted to show another point of view, ususally one that is more emotionally detached from the issues ex-JWs face. I must admit that, in my endeavors to seek a neutral, intellectually honest ground, I have at times gone a little too far the other way in defending the Witnesses and haven't rightly seen things the way they more forthrightly are.
Well, perhaps it's time I reassure the unfaithful with the number one reason why I am NOT a JW apologist. Namely....THERE IS NO JEHOVAH.
Okay, got it?
