Don't rely on prejudiced sources for reliable information! It would be like going to the Pharasees to get correct information about Jesus.

Holy shitake mushrooms, this thread is STILL alive???
I haven't logged into Topix in about two years and this thing is still chugging along. Wow!

What's the topic dejour? Ahhh, whether or not Jehovah Witnesses are a cult?

I'm going to go with a "yes" on that one.
I studied with them when I was very young and impressionable. It didn't last long.

And that is how they keep you stupid and gullible. You are not allowed to visit or read anything that they don't approve of. Anyone that was DF'd the scream they are an Apostate and you can't even tell them hi. You sure the hell aren't allowed to be on here and a web site that does nothing but quote the stupid crap is also off limits. Everything I posted came out of your cult magazine, its the same crap you peddle at doors so what, you have no comment on it?

God I feel sorry for the kids in that cult. I knew a girl that was born in, baptized at 14, DF'd at 16 and was treated like a piece of dirt until she turned 18 and moved out. Her stupid parents home schooled her so she was dumb as a rock and had to strip to support herself and put herself through school. The fact you idiots disown your children shows how dangerous of a cult you are.

And selfish, you are the most selfish group around. You have not one charity and knocking on peoples doors early in the morning doesn't count as one. You guys take a loan out from your cult leaders to build a hall, you use free labor, you pay the loan back to the people who own the building anyway. How much sense does that make? Thats why they keep you stupid so you don't know any better.

I bet you own a cleaning business don't you? I'll give the JWs that, they sure do make great janitors.

What don't you understand? Spam is spam. You have to be a delusional nincompoop to believe that people enjoy or benefit from you knocking on their doors and shoving flyers under their windshield wipers - or cutting and pasting page after page of completely IRRELEVANT articles from WT and Awake and promoting your religion's website on Topix.
.
Show of hands? Who finds the JW's solicitations to be inappropriate, condescending and disrespectful?
.
Have you seen WITW, SP, YaA or ANYONE else posting links to their covens, churches, sects or denominations? I'd call them on it, too - but I've never needed to because they are more honorable than you are. Why do you f'in' THINK I've told YOU to walk the Loop WalMart parking lot with a sandwich board?

I never point out grammar because I think its rude and discourages people from posting but since you push a cult that forces their children not to get an education I'm going to at least show you how to spell Pharisees.

Blind faith is a horrible thing. You go around telling people their religion sucks because your religion sucks even worse. Tell us about the Conti case. You know where the JWs were ordered to pay what, 28 million I think? They have to pay that because your cult lets children get raped and are no better than the Catholic priest you love to point out. You guys, the JWs have the largest pedophile lawsuit out of everyone. Does that make you proud?

Your cult hurts children.

Didn't read my post, did you schmuck? SPAM IS SPAM.
Apparently your wealth of knowledge doesn't apply to earthly concerns? Well then:

"Spam is the use of electronic messaging systems to send unsolicited bulk messages, especially advertising, indiscriminately. While the most widely recognized form of spam is e-mail spam, the term is applied to similar abuses in other media."

We will meet again my friend,
A hundred years from today
Far away from where we lived
And where we used to play.

We will know each others' eyes
And wonder where we met
Your laugh will sound familiar
Your heart, I won't forget.

We will meet, I'm sure of this,
But let's not wait till then...
Let's take a walk beneath the stars
And share this world again.

A friend is someone who knows the song in your heart, and will sing it back to you when you forget the words..

Lord help me live from day to day,
In such a humble sort of way,
To give a smile, help lift a load,
For those I meet along life's road,
And when I come to my journey's end,
My life I have not lived in vain,
If one dear friend can smile and say,
"I'm glad I met him on life's way

Rumors
Rumors are carried by haters,
Spread by fools,
And accepted by idots!
If you went to church and said you had spent a lot of time reading about evolution by reading Dawkins, Ernst Mayr, and Gould would your church leaders say "Good. It is important to learn about these things so we can discuss them rationally." Or would they discourage you from ever doing it again?

Or perhaps you read some books on the history of religion, or listened to a Teaching Company lecture series on the history of Christianity in the USA. Would they appreciate this or would they ask you to stop doing it?

They might say "Good, good, now you see that the real world is so full of problems, not even the most wizened of "clerics" can fix them.

Probably why the Pope is getting out. Eighty five years old, run Pope run-enjoy some time on left on Earth in PEACE.

I think it's about time a leader quit office before he's too infirm to run it. Look at Byrd, Thurman, Mubarak, Khomeini... It would be nice if a dozen other senile old goats followed the Pope's lead and quit while we're behind.

JW would be reading only the "Life" book for facts about evolution.

Watchtower Society book Life - How Did It Get Here? By Evolution Or By Creation?.

Reading Dawkins Ernst Mayr, and Gould may be considered heresy and questioning the Holy Spirit (aka Watchtower publications) could lead to shunning punishment or excommunication.

When someone wants to restrict what you can read and doesn't respect your capability to study and interpret facts for yourself, it's time to get a little skeptical.

Anyone threatened by scientific fact and objective observation is hiding from the truth.

Agreed! If your religion cannot withstand scrutiny it has a problem.

More to the point, when your religion cannot withstand scrutiny, what inhibits you from implementing the obvious solution?
