I don't think I was talking to you. From the looks of your post picture you look too ----to understand TRUTH if you were zaped on the head with it!
So what do you have to look like to be a prospect for your cult? Mr. & Mrs. Ward Cleaver? Zapped in the head with truth? Mac McMurphey got that in One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

What's Palestine's REAL problem?

Stop LYING and distorting and tell the truth.

Palestine's problem is GREED along with the INability to even garner enough common sense collectively, to govern themselves democratically.

You just go sit in the corner, yer making me mad with your BS distortions of the TRUTH in reality.

The Golden Rule is paradoxical. When you have religies who actually enjoy having their brains beaten to oatmeal with Bibles, magazines and publications authorized by their High Shamans, they believe that everyone's should be.

Let them pass this, and watch the federal class action law suits roll in. The ACLU, and other secular organizations would have a feild day over this proposal.

I can see it's a sensitive issue for you. You might want to think about why it upsets you so much, you know... for your health.

But I digress. I'm not talking "just" about current events, although I don't think it's a stretch to say we wouldn't have invaded Afghanistan or even Iraq if 911 hadn't happened (and 911 happened because?).

From the Crusades to the Inquisition to the Holocaust to Bosnia the "good" book has been used to justify countless atrocities.

To be fair, I lump all of the magic books of the Abrahamic religions together into one pile of blood-lusting, bigoted, superstitious crap and refer to it as the "bible". It's easier for me and I see no rational reason to differentiate between them.

That's why there's childrens books of more parable like teachings, based upon some of what is found in the Bible. Who in their right mind would want stories of darkness, hatred and warring forced upon any child?
...
Plus, they're more receptive to the children's book versions...right?
If you didn't sugar coat the crap they wouldn't swallow it would they? Save the horror stories for later, after they're indoctrinated.

So, after reading your whole rant, I'm kind of confused. Are you for bible study in public school or against?

How do you decide that JW has the truth? If you are making that decision then you are assuming you know the mind of God on some level. Don't you leave any room for doubt?
Do you at least concede that your faith might not be the right one? If not, on what grounds do you have this ultimate Godlike knowledge? And for that matter why are Muslims wrong if they also believe they have the truth? Or Jews or Catholics or Mormons, etc.
There are several reasons that convences us that we do indeed have the truth! One is we base everything we teach on God's word the Bible. John 8:31,32 17:3 17:17 and 1John 5:19

ARE YOU A GENUINE CHRISTIAN?
It is vital for each person who claims to be a Christian to answer this question positively. Why? Because God’s approval depends thereon. Christianity is not merely a belief or a label, but a way of life. Does your way of life reflect Christ’s example? Does your religious practice match the Biblical quality of the early Christians?
The apostle Paul invites us:“Put yourselves to the proof, to see whether you are holding the Faith. Test yourselves.”(2 Corinthians 13:5, The Twentieth Century New Testament) To this end, we invite you to check the following short list, while looking up the cited scriptures in your own Bible.
1. Do you participate in national or political loyalties that cause divisions among professed Christians?—1 Corinthians 1:10; John 18:36; James 1:27.
2. How do you define Christian love?—1 Corinthians 13:4-8.
3. Do you, in practice, endeavor to show true neighbor love? How?—Matthew 22:39; John 13:34, 35.
4. Are you kind, tenderly compassionate and forgiving toward others?—Ephesians 4:31; Romans 12:10.
5. In your daily life, do you avoid lying, stealing, cheating and the use of obscene and abusive language?—Ephesians 5:3-5; 4:25-31.
6. Are you inclined to think that sexual morality is of minor importance?—Mark 7:20-23.
7. Do you tend to excesses in eating and drinking?—Proverbs 23:20, 21; Ephesians 5:18.
8. Do you try to communicate true Christian faith to others by word and deed?—Romans 10:9, 10; 1 Corinthians 9:16.
At what conclusion do you arrive? Do true Christians really exist today? Do you know of any who earnestly try to live like Christ and at the same time make a real effort to communicate their Christian belief and way of life to their neighbors? Does your own religion in fact teach and practice genuine Christianity? Or is this just an attractive label or impressive signature?
If you do not already know them personally, we suggest you take a closer look at Jehovah’s Witnesses in your vicinity and see if they are conscientiously endeavoring to measure up to the Bible standards considered above. If you do not know where they are located, we will be glad to help you to get in touch with them.—Isaiah 43:10-12; Acts 11:26.

Stated just like a true religie, good job, that's what I,m talking about. Do you think morgan freeman has time to make a cd of the holyhatebible? I can hear his voice now quoting scripture,

happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones
psalm 137/9

behold, I will corrupt your seed, and spread dung upon your faces malachi 2/3

for every one that curseth his father or his mother shall be surely put to death
leviticus 20/9

Lmao, dare I say it, yes, you're ignorant. Keep your ridiculous religion out of public schools.
