I met some Jehovah's Witnesses today, kept them on my doorstep until it started raining on them, while I was all nice and dry in my porch. I was actually a bit worse for wear, having downed several large whiskeys (single-malt, no rubbish!), but I managed to comport myself well.

Being a JW virgin, as it were, I didn't actually know the extents or limitations of their particular form of insanity and so some broad-shots at religion in general didn't hit home with quite the thunder I had envisaged.

I was quite blunt, told them I was an atheist upfront and a scientifically minded one at that. Usually I use the term agnostic to prevent door-to-door evangelists from immediately going on the defensive. But today I was busy and tipsy and in no real mood for protracted front-door debate and so they invited me to come along to their little club this weekend, to answer some more of my questions about Jehovah. Any advice people?

My great-granny carried the green bible and taught me about the 144,000. She would never let me have soda pop. Arrgh! Is that part of JW?

Yeah, this is pretty much what they believe. I was raised a Jehovah's Witness. They actually have a few other beliefs that are unique to their own brand of Christianity.

Sorry. I got confused. The catholics call him "saint michael, the archangel." He's sort of both things to them: a "chief" angel. The story is part of both religions and they use it in different ways. I'm not familiar with JWs.

The video talks about the Archangel Michael, not the saint.

Great comment, Kitty. I guess you have to be white to be a Jehovah's Witness. I also never knew that Jesus and Saint Michael were the same person/deity. And isn't he a catholic saint? If so, won't he burn in hell? So they're saying Jesus burns in hell? This makes less sense than usual.

look at all those white people in heaven!
