      do not vote..at least they are not supposed to.

      And in spite of their theology, some JWs are nice people.

      Don't insult JWs by comapring them with Dittoheads, please.

        came knocking on my door. I was getting ready to go phone banking. I opened the door and one of the ladies started going on about corruption in politics. I stopped her and said are you JW? She said yes.
          I said you got to get involved and vote. She looked at me sort of forlorn because she knew if she was even able to continue it would become a long discussion about politics.
          I was polite but I said no thanks.

          at least with the JWs that I know, they are not at all pushy and rabid like Dittoheads. They proselytize, yes, but all you ever really have to say is, "No, thank you" and go on about your day.

          I know a number of JWs. They tend to be polite and I respond in kind (as you did).

        •  You should ask her about the corruption (0+ / 0-)

          Within  the Watchtower Society ,  imagine      the   look on her face ,after  you saying this , i know two Jehovah Witness women , i have never been one  and would never advise anyone to be one ,it is not something you would wish even on Republican

          •  Imagine having one in your family! (0+ / 0-)

            My father converted about 20 years ago after the death of his wonderful (my feelings about her) second wife.  He had been an avid Rush fan, but actually gave him up because of his devotion to his new church.  He talked about not paying any attention to politics anymore, but still went off on so-called welfare queens the one time I've spoken to him in the past 5 or so years.  I laughed at him and reminded him that Reagan was dead and so were his button pushing lies.  I let him know that if he wanted to speak to me longer, that kind of talk would stop.

            He ended up in prison for a little while for the attempted rape of my half sister (pled down to a non-sexual crime). He served his time.  The above conversation was after he got out.  He got kicked out of the witnesses, but still spends his days working to live his life in a way that will get them to let him back in and I find both aspects of this pathetic.  I guess he doesn't want to join a club that would want him for a member.

            Does anyone else think that it is ironic that Mitt was not the governor of a state but a COMMON Wealth? I'm just saying...

        I think,  i know the two nicest Jehovah Witness   women in the world ,  I am buying them dinner for the Holidays, niceness of some are just  a  way so they can get thier Witness duties done,while they look at Non Witness as no more than Apostate ,Jehovah Witness have issues just like the rest of  society ,but they  do a great job of masking their unhappiness  too the   public , while they suffer silent at  the yoke of the Watchtower oppressive rule
