Hi everybody. Despite the prayers of your local Kingdom Halls, I’m not dead. 😛 I’m a busy college boy who hasn’t had time to write much or to fix all the quirks that were left in the aftermath of the big reboot here at AGN. Right now, you find me in the midst of Spring Break. And unlike your Spring Break, I’m here instead of getting drunk or making out with chicks.
Wow. Now I’m just sad. Avoidance-mode engaged!
This was the film’s second public showing in New York. A number of ex-Witnesses were there (wish I could have been one of them). But here’s the sweet part: 1) it took place less than two miles away from Bethel headquarters 2) it took place the day after the Memorial 3) the video shows Gregorio and others blanketing the general area near Bethel with flyers that promote the documentary.
On a related note, here’s a little bonus: Interview with filmmaker Gregorio Smith talks about “Truth be Told.”

Whether someone is Atheist, Agnostic, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish, – or yes, even Christian – all can identify at times with the cry, “Lord, Save Us from Your Followers!” Fed up with the divisive bumper sticker mentality overtaking America, director (and follower) Dan Merchant donned his Bumper Sticker Man suit and set out on the daring search for meaningful dialogue and the true face of faith.
Yes, it’s on Hulu…sorry. But if you have Netflix, you can actually watch it without the commercials!
Deliverance at Hand! is James Zimmerman’s account of growing up as a zealous Jehovah’s Witness in the Twin Cities area of Minnesota.
When parents disown their teenaged or young adult children, they miss out on seeing them mature. I daydream about the conversation I’d have with my mother now that I am in my mid-thirties. I’d love for her to get to know me. What would she think of her grown up daughter?
