On twitter noticed that someone from the Jehovah’s Witnesses had suggested that atheists were not prepared to listen to a different point of view. Intrigued decided to discuss my experience and find out if still the same now for a Jehovah’s Witness.
It looks like I may have been blocked before my last tweet, on the grounds that I was regarded as a an apostate.
So much for listening to different views of others. However, I am an ex bible student. I was not baptised, nor disfellowshipped. Clearly not someone to be listened to though I am not subject to being shunned. Notice though by being described as an apostate it does not matter what I had to say. Anything and everything can be dismissed. Invalidated by being labled.
For anything we really believe, that is our way of life, it is more vital to critically examine it.
