PostJehovah's Witnesses

As you are probably aware, I spent 14 years of my life as a Jehovah's
Witness. Not a good 14 years, I might add, but I honestly thought that
I was doing something right and it was the correct faith to be in and
all the usual bullshit most religious people think the moment they join
a new belief system.

A few years ago, I left that faith due to
personal experiences of a supernatural kind. The experiences I had led
me to realize that most of what I had previously believed wasn't for
me. In fact, a lot of it disgusted me when I thought about it properly.
It was then that I became a Wiccan/Pagan/Kemetian.

I've since
only had 3 encounters with the Witnesses who, by rights according to
their guidelines, are supposed to visit those who have 'fallen away'
regularly in an attempt to 'call them back to the flock'. Only 3! How
stupid is that? I mean, I know I wouldn't ever go back, but still...
Principles.

Anyway, a couple of years ago I went back for one
meeting (The sunday meeting) to make up my mind once and for all, plus
I had a few things that were weighing on my mind that I needed to speak
to the 'elders' about. It did not go well...

Firstly, I was,
quite frankly, appalled by what I heard being said on the platform.
"AND THE WICKED WILL BE DESTROYED AT ARMAGEDDON AND WON'T THAT BE A
HAPPY TIME FOR US?" Everyone agreed and clapped their fucking hands. I
was sat their in utter disbelief thinking, "Christ (No pun intended),
these people are fucking evil! What 'loving' god would honestly want to
slaughter thousands of his own supposed creations!? And why would these
so-called loving people who shun violence be enjoying the fact that he
would do that!?"

The next problem was me pointing out that they
still practice pagan traditions. (IE: Rings, bridesmaids, etc at
weddings and whatnot.) By rights, they are supposed to avoid all pagan
things, because it's 'Satan's creation'. But, "the society deems it
ok", so there we go... Hypocritical assholes.

I went away 100% convinced that my old way of JW life was certainly over and I would never go back.


Anyway...
I had a knock at the door all but 10 minutes ago by a person I used to
know back in the day. Verna Beresford, her name was. I thought "OK,
I'll give her a chance to say her piece, even though I despise anything
to do with Christianity these days." I was polite and everything. She
asked about my beliefs, so I told her that I didn't want to offend her
and only said the basics. She started asking about whether I'd ever
consider returning, I said no. I also explained that I wanted no part
of a religion that rejoices in mass slaughter and that I believe
'Jehovah' exists, but he's not what people think he is. I also added
that if he was loving, he wouldn't murder thousands. (See Israelites)
She kept asking more about my beliefs and I explained a little further,
but I could see she wasn't truely listening. The next minute, she's
calling me naive!

NAIVE!?

Oh, right. That's right.
I'm not allowed to believe anything other than one god, jesus, the holy
fuckin' spirit and the boogeyman Satan doing naughty, naughty things to
people. I'm not allowed to be an individual. I'm naive for having my
own set of ideals, morals and thoughts.

It's one thing having to
put up with the bible bashing, I can do that ok. I can stand there and
listen as they waffle on about salvation, god's love and Jesus'
motherfucking sacrifice, but I will be damned if I have to stand there
and be insulted by an old, prunish tart who's only excitement comes
from turning the pages of a human-written powertrip tool.

I honestly nearly unleashed my anger on her... And that would not have ended well.

Anubis will show them no mercy, methinks...
