I got a letter from Jehovah’s Witnesses!
Or, rather, my dad got a letter from JW, because why send the letter to the whole family when you can send it directly to the one who matters?
Or maybe he didn’t, cause the address sticker has some really weird errors. For one thing, they spelled last name wrong.
We have the same last name, so I’m not sure how to phrase this. Grammar is weird.
They also seem to think that my dad has two middle names. Like, it’s put “John M Middlename Doe” on the envelope. I’m not sure if whoever sent this is under the impression this is how one should format a middle name on a letter or if they’ve recorded my dad in whatever files they may or may not have with two middle names. Either way, it’s very wrong.
Enough about the envelope, what’s in the letter itself?

[I hope this letter finds you and your family well. There is so much happening in the world today, that many of our friends and neighbors are asking this question - 'who is responsible for all the suffering in the world?']
[The answer can be found and it might surprise you.]
But seriously, though. Why do so many uber-religious people think that no one but them has heard of the basic tenents of Christianity? It’d be one thing if they were telling us about how they think armageddon is right around the corner or anything beyond “Yo, what if the devil was behind evil? You ever thought about that?” but nooooo.

[Please use your Bible to look up the text.]
Fun fact: the bible1 Should this be capitalized? Whatever. I’ve got on my bookshelf is one I stole from a motel because that specific one also provided a Book of Mormon, which I also took.

I’d recommend you check out Telltale Atheist‘s YouTube channel, as I find it more informative.
[May you and your family gain God's blessing.]
Because the Watchtower is in desperate need of money from racking up fines from the government for withholding the names of pedophiles in their congregations.
Did they include anything else?
Below I’ve included my annotated pamphlet displaying the evils of operatic priests, puppeteers, and politics, among other things. They also included a smaller pamphlet, but it had information on the specific location and how to go to meetings and stuff and not really worth riffing on.
