The JWs keep visiting my estate. You see them, all smart with their clipboards, swarming among the houses. They don't call here any more, but they insist on parking their expensive cars all in a line on a blind bend in the road to the entrance of the estate. There's clearly nothing in their rules about obeying traffic laws.

Ooh, that reminds me. I saw a couple of Mormon lads getting talked to by security guards at the National Stadium here in Singapore. It didn't look like a friendly "Hey, how's it going" sort of chat. One security guard was pointing around the place and the lads were nodding their heads in acknowledgement. Was very tempted to ask if they were being warned about proselytising, but thought it would be more proper to keep my nose out of it.

All too true. The actress Lea Remini, a former Scientologist, has been doing an expose series on the American A&E network about the abuses of Scientology. A very scary cult! Just a month ago Remini did a two-hour segment on the JWs and how they practice shunning that destroys families. The two cults have in common exactly what you said.

Muslims are also notoriously harsh toward apostates. Play it safe and call 'em all cults I say, nice and disparaging too.

We've been watching the series, that episode was on a couple of weeks ago. I already knew they were batshit from listening to my mother-in-laws family, particularly her sister who's a wild-eyed fanatic, but I didn't realize how batshit they actually are. OK, so you're raised in it, but how the fucking hell do you not realize what an utter load of tosh it is when you get older? I cannot fathom how people can't see through the bullshit.

I think Jehovahs Witnesses and Scientologists should debate each other just to see what would happen

All joking aside however the ones here in the city centre are quiet and dress either smart or casual
Even when you give them eye contact or take the Watchtower from them they will say nothing at all
I cannot comment upon the cars that they drive but they are all mostly probably in good jobs anyway

They are a danger here. It's a narrow road, and they park all along it on that blind bend. All their cars are big and shiny. I've had a few near misses. They're always here. I don't know why. They stopped coming to my house, I think, because I always kept them talking. Or maybe it was because I was very polite but also very firm about how the stuff they were pushing didn't make any sense. Probably it's because Zeb and Charlie like to greet them with a raucous hymn of their own from the bay window (right next to the front door). In any case, they don't bother to knock here anymore. The Scientologists would cow them into submission in a heartbeat. Those are some nasty shits.
