'The Jehovahs'

came to the door today.
I have a soft spot for Jehovah's Witnesses,
they seem so guileless (unlike other Christians)
and I always tell them that Entarteten like me
wore pink triangles in concentration-camps,
while they had purple ones.
(Though I might have ended up with more
than one triangle, being
'work-shy', 'anti-social', pacifist...
They are kind to dogs.
I tell them that if there's a non-jihadist heaven
they'll be there. Maybe I'll be with them.
I always tell them, too,
that I am a Transcendental Atheist.
The one who did the spiel today
was so sweet and beautiful,
gentle and earnest
that I wanted to hug and kiss her
and bring her in
and tell her the Good News
of Transcendental Atheism.

I was stopped by a Jehovah's Witness yesterday on the street who asked me, 'Do you think humanity is getting worse and the earth is doomed?' I answered yes, and she was so pleased by the unexpected affirmation that she broke out in a big smile and offered me one of her leaflets. I took it, smiled and we parted, both pleased by the exchange.

Once you let go your anger [ :) ] with all the miseries of the world, especially your favorite targets, USA, capitalism and that old bagg, the Canadian Head of State, and let your happy inside come out, it's a pleasure to read.

I would love to see the "outcome" of that visit :)

I’m always very suspicious of people who condemn the Jehovahs.
They’re very sweet, have a hard time proselytising, and are never intimidating like the Mormons.

I’m pleased, Karl, that you brought a smile to a JW face – though, it must be said, they smile easily and warmly.
And this young woman smiled in my sour old heart...

Jindra -
there are too many gung-ho optimists about.
I just try to spread
a little realism
on other people's bread.

I drive past by a couple of Jehovah Witnesses every Saturday and give them a wave and a toot toot of my car horn. They stand on a street corner in Edinburgh by the Meadows handing out the Watchtower to whoever will take them. One used to be a Catholic, the other was a Church of Scotland regular. I don't know why they chose the Jehovahs instead of their original church but they seem happy enough now. I even pull over and stop and chat with them for a few moments sometimes just for some words of wisdom. I always cross one of their palms with silver before they hand me the latest copy of The AWAKE leaflet. The jury is still out...
