Readers should first take a look at the TOPIX thread entitled, "Why Is CLEVELAND BANNER Constantly Promoting WatchTower CULT? to see how FOR YEARS the Cleveland Banner has been UNDERHANDEDLY and DECEITFULLY inserting and promoting the beliefs and teachings of the WATCHTOWER CULT into its articles.

On this past MEMORIAL DAY 2013, the CLEVELAND BANNER once again UNDERHANDEDLY and DECEITFULLY did it again in an article entitled, "Memorial Day: Honoring those who served".

This article is authored by Cleveland Daily Banner EDITOR, William Wright, who just so happens to also be a local JEHOVAH'S WITNESS MINISTER.

In this article, JW MINISTER William Wright honors, or so it seems at first, the military service of Paul Ingham, who served in both the U.S. Marines and the U.S. Army. Paul Ingham also served one deployment in Bosnia and three deployemnts in Iraq. Paul Ingham served honorably and was highly decorated.

SO, WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS ARTICLE?

Apparently, after ending his military career, Paul Ingham turned his back on much of his past and converted to the WATCHTOWER CULT -- becoming a JEHOVAH'S WITNESS MINISTER, himself.

Yes, the CLEVELAND BANNER'S LIFESTYLE EDITOR chose to honor on Memorial Day a fellow Jehovah's Witness Minister, who had once served a distingushed military career, but who now teaches the ANTI-MILITARY and ANTI-GOVERNMENT beliefs and doctrines of the WATCHTOWER CULT.

Yes, on MEMORIAL DAY, the CLEVELAND DAILY BANNER deceitfully and underhandedly HONORED a JEHOVAH'S WITNESS MINISTER who had turned his back on his previous honorable and distinguished military service.

In the mid 1930s, the Watch Tower Society started forbidding Jehovah's Witnesses to salute the American Flag, or recite the Pledge Of Allegiance, or stand for the playing of the National Anthem, or engage in any other patriotic activity.

Jehovah's Witnesses were taught to tell the news media, courts, and other outsiders that the American Flag is a false idol, and doing any of the aforementioned activities is performing "worship" to a false idol. This "public relations" reasoning is actually the LEAST of all the reasons that Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to engage in any patriotic or political activities. This secondary, ancillary reasoning was developed because the WatchTower Society did not dare to have its Jehovah's Witness members running around repeating for the news media and courtroom judges the PRIMARY doctrine on this subject, which would outrage the American public.

What Jehovah's Witnesses intentionally do NOT publically explain to non-JWs is that the Watch Tower Society teaches Jehovah's Witnesses that the Government of the United States is governing ILLEGITIMATELY.

The Watch Tower Society teaches that the Government of the United States is under the control of Satan the Devil as his partner in Satan's universal rebellion against GOD. The Watch Tower Society teaches that GOD granted humans the authority to rule the earth only for a period of 2520 years -- starting in 607 B.C. and ending in October, 1914 A.D. The Watch Tower Society teaches that in October, 1914, the authority to rule the earth reverted back to GOD, and that He then formed a heavenly government to rule the earth.

The Watch Tower Society teaches that in 1919 that Jesus Christ selected the Watch Tower Society as his sole earthly representative of that heavenly government. The Watch Tower Society teaches that the Government of the United States (as well as all other governments), is its' enemy, because it has failed to surrender governmental power that rightfully belongs to the Watch Tower Society.

These are the ACTUAL reasons that the Watch Tower Society forbids its Jehovah's Witness members to support the government of the United States -- no voting, no holding political office, no professing citizen loyalty via the Pledge of Allegiance or standing for the National Anthem, no joining the military to protect the United States, etc. Jehovah's Witnesses do not profess to be "pacifists". They claim to be "neutrals". JWs consider themselves to be "citizens" of the government supposedly formed in heaven in 1919, and that they are only "resident aliens" of the United States.

The Watch Tower Society teaches that Armageddon will occur "soon", and at the Battle of Armageddon, that Jesus Christ and his heavenly armies will destroy the armies and governments of the United States, and of all other countries -- including all people who did not convert to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

Jehovah's Witnesses look forward to the day when they will rule the planet.

Here are some recent examples of REAL WORLD JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES putting into ACTUAL PRACTICE the ANTI-GOVERNMENT and ANTI-MILITARY beliefs and teachings of the WATCHTOWER CULT.

Interested Readers should google the name "GRETA HAWKINS" -- to read June 2012 newspaper articles about a Jehovah's Witness public elementary school Principal who just recently refused to allow her students to sing Lee Greenwood's "GOD BLESS THE USA" at a recent graduation ceremony. Hawkins has also attempted to do away with her school's custom of daily reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL".

Interested Readers also should google the name "LEROY McKELVEY" -- to read newspaper articles about a "devout Jehovah's Witness" who tased a U.S. Marine and others at a September 2011 Jets-Cowboys football game attended by past President George W. Bush and other public officials present to honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Interested Readers should google the phrase "JW Manager entered the apartment without permission and took down the Flag" to read about a Jehovah's Witness apartment building Manager who refused to allow tenants to display the American Flag after 9-11.

To read about all of the above on one single webpage, Google the names "Armando Perez", "Tyler Templeton", and "Bruce Cooke" -- ALL IN THE SAME SEARCH -- to read about a dozen or so similar incidents involving "Jehovah's Witnesses".

Well, it is May 2014, and I just stumbled across another piece of DECEPTIVE GARBAGE published by the CLEVELAND BANNER on behalf of its Editor WILLIAM WRIGHT -- who is also a local Jehovah's Witness Minister.

On May 28, 2014, in an article entitled, "A shocking scientific revelation?", REVEREND WRONG once again uses the same format that he has been using for years.

Wright first introduces a topic using info and quotes from some credible person and/or source, and then completely twists that info around to promote a FALSE TEACHING OF THE WATCHTOWER CULT.

Read the article for yourself to see how REVEREND WRONG attempts to use the cited scientific info to teach the Jehovah's Witnesses Doctrine that there is NO SUCH THING as an eternal SOUL, but that we humans die, the soul also dies, but that "Jehovah" remembers a person's characteristics so as to later be able to resurrect them.

STUPIDITY.

If humans do not have a SOUL that contnues to exist past death, then when humans die -- they have totally ceased to exist. If "Jehovah" RECREATES them, they don't exist again -- a DUPLICATE exists again.

Jehovah's Witnesses DO NOT teach a resurrection -- they teach REPLICATION.

And, they are too STUPID to understand the difference.
