Hello I am Apostate

Jehovah Witness Thought Police

 

Apostate, Apostasy, Apostate Baiting (yes they do that, sort of like red-baiting)

Notable quotable Watchtower defines an 'apostate':
 
"If someone used to be a Jehovah's Witness, "We must hate in the truest sense, which is to regard with extreme active aversion, to consider as loathsome, odious, filthy, to detest." - Watchtower, 10/1/52, p.599
 
Now what other institution promotes this level of hatred?

Scapegoating

Hitler-had the Jews


Jim Jones -"fascist terrorist"

David Koresh- Feds aka 'agents of Satan'

Watchtower - former member aka apostate traitors

Danny defines apostate--"a devout believer turned destroyer"--yup, that's me I reckon.

My first impressions-

Of the loathsome abominable apostate after the bogeyman of the evil slave had run it's course, was the 1979 (100 year anniversary of the Watchtower) district convention at the Bayfront center in St.Petersburg, Florida.


 
Of course this new apostate character was introduced with the flair of a WT Drama.

The theme of the drama's setting being what else, but the usurping of Moses and Aaron by the Korah gang, and how the ground opened up and swallowed the clan whole.

 

Picture of the ground (Jehovah) swallowing up non-Witnesses at Armageddon, from the 1958 Watchtower publication, From Paradise Lost to Paradise Regained, p. 209.
 

In the mid 1980's the Watchtower further elaborated on the apostate buffoonery with a subtitled article; Apostasy in the camp.

This article was about some JW refugees sequestered in a camp where one of their members broke away and "went on up to the mountain top to get instruction from Jehovah like Moses did", and returned butt naked and hysterical.
 

Some more apostate urban legends, myths and outright lies from Watchtower indoctrination:
 
 
* Guards are posted at convention podiums because deranged apostates will try to storm the microphone. This happened once in 1978 not by an apostate, but by a benign mentally retarded JW man who thought he could give a talk.
 
* Watchtower editors must proofread & edit the publications on account of apostates will use typos as an excuse to sue. This lie is so bogus it's laughable.
 
* Apostates vandalize vehicles at the Bethel parking lots--Lie! Actually it's active Jehovah's Witnesses who have slashed my truck tires repeatedly.
 
* Apostates must be crazy because they picket conventions. Excuse me, it was Watchtower president Joe Rutherford who started the picketing (religion is a snare and a racket)

This impression of the deranged/flunky/haughty, apostate buffoon was to persist until my own 'crisis of conscience' in 1992.
My first contact 1994 with an apostate was David Reed who i suspected may be thoroughly demonized. I became a supporter of his comment from the friends operations, and the ground didn't open up.

 
Back as early as 92 the Internet was already being demonized as 'the tool of Satan' by the Watchtower although I knew of no one who was connected online. Most JW familys who had a PC in the house the children used it to play computer games.

 
A couple of years after my 'purge,' Ray Franz published his Crisis of Conscience book and I had my first meeting with Steve Hassan at his home who lived the next suburb over in Boston, Massachusetts.

Steve seeded a start-up ex-cult support group at Boston University and I met other ex -JWs along with Children of God, Moonies and Scientologist.

 
Yes, we have come a long way baby.....

 
Put plain and simple: The Watchtower is about one thing, other people's money.--- Danny Haszard the apostate is all about: getting all his Watchtower money back.
 

Danny Haszard apostate-in their face in cyberspace
