It's been a while since I have posted anything about Jehovah's Witnesses and I thought today would be a wonderful day to post something. Here is a cartoon I found on the net. And I swear the two guys in the cartoon were in my congregation. What the cartoon says is so true. Not only are JW's blatant, but they also have no regard for your
privacy. They couldn't care if you were in the middle of something. They will just try to kill you with their fake kindness. How do I know their kindness is fake? My own experience. How can you one minute call someone your "brother or sister" and then the next minute want nothing to do with them. FAKE, FAKE, FAKE.
When I was disfellowshipped the first time I went back for the Memorial. Let me explain what the Memorial is. There is only one holiday that JW's will celebrate and it's called The Memorial. They celebrate it the same night as the first night of Passover. (or maybe the night before passover) Anyway...it's usually right around the same time as Easter. They "celebrate" Jesus' death. So, this first time I was disfellowshipped I went back to the Memorial just to please my Mother. I had a friend go with me. The next day she gave her view on the whole situation. She said they are well dressed robots. That is so true. The next time JW's come walking down your street, watch them. They move just like robots. They are spoon fed everything they are suppose to say when they are out in neighborhoods. Whenever I see them walking down the street I always feel sorry for the kids. You know the kids do not want to be there. I remember my Mom forcing me to go out door to door. I hated it so much. How awakward is it for you when you are a teenager to have to go up to complete strangers and tell them about your church and try to get them to convert. It's torture. Did I mention that you are required to get at least a few hours in a month? If you don't the Elders come knocking on your door wondering why you aren't sharing the good news. Give me a fucking break.
When I was a small child I used to answer questions at church because it made my Mom happy. Well, once I hit my teenage years I didn't want to answer any more questions. My Mom would do anything to get me to answer. She would bribe me...anything to make it look like her daughter was growing up to be a well dressed robot. She even did that after I was married. I was no longer living with her but she would still say, "aren't you going to answer".
You can not imagine how much of a relief it is to not be involved in that religion anymore. They know who I am and I don't have to hide anything. Every once in a while I run into a JW in a store. They just stare at me like, "I can't believe Jehovah has allowed her to continue living even though she is so evil". They do looked shocked to see that I am out and about. I always smile to them. I want them to see that I am not ashamed of who I am or where I am in my life. They don't know what to do when I smile at them. When the JW's come to my door and I explain to them that I am disfellowshipped you should see them run. It's as if they have just seen the devil. I think it's funny as hell to see their facial expressions change when I tell them that I am disfellowshipped. Always gives me a good laugh.
