In the June 25, 2013 edition of THE DAVIS CLIPPER, staff reporter MELINDA WILLIAMS authors a gratuitous "puff piece" PROMOTIONAL article which provides FREE ADVERTISING for two upcoming WATCHTOWER CULT CONVENTIONS being hosted by Weber State University. The "English edition" is this weekend. The "Spanish edition" is the following weekend.

MELINDA WILLIAMS interviews WATCHTOWER CULT Spokesman Jeff Tackett, of Salt Lake City, who provided a handful of pre-prepared self-serving "sound bites" for this free advertisement.

MELINDA WILLIAMS also provides a schedule and summary of the conventions' sessions in the ridicuous hope of luring some unwary local to attend such. Given that noone but Jehovah's Witnesses and their families could care less about these conventions, and they already have known about such since last year, the only worthwhile portion of the entire article for the general public is the statistic that there are approximately 2000 WatchtowerCult members now living in Davis County.

If THE DAVIS CLIPPER was truly interested in performing some semblance of journalism which might interest Davis County TAXPAYERS, the newspaper would investigate the contract terms between WEBER STATE UNIVERSITY and the Brooklyn, New York based WATCHTOWER CULT headquarters, PLUS investigate whether the local Convention & Visitors Bureau or any other County or City entity is providing any type of FINANCIAL SUBSIDY to entice the WATCHTOWER CULT to select this venue.

One can't help but wonder exactly how many Jehovah's Witnesses are employed at THE DAVIS CLIPPER, or one of its media related corporate affiliates?

Local VOTERS and TAXPAYERS are entitled to know what BELIEFS and PRACTICES their local POLITICIANS may be FINANCIALLY FUNDIND.

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.

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 of all other religions 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 beliefs and teachings of the WATCHTOWER CULT, which may be FINANCIALLY SUBSIDIZED by state and local taxes from both local City/County POLITICIANS, and the administration at WEBER STATE UNIVERSITY. Keep in mind that this is what new SPANISH-SPEAKING legal and illegal residents are being taught using your tax dollars.

Interested Readers can 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".

INTERESTINGLY, since Greta Hawkins could NOT use her Watchtower Cult beliefs as a PUBLIC EXCUSE for her decision, Hawkins CLAIMED that Lee Greenwood's song "GOD BLESS THE USA" was OFFENSIVE TO IMMIGRANTS. Hawkins is CORRECT -- EXCEPT that "GOD BLESS THE USA" is only OFFENSIVE to IMMIGRANTS WHO ARE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES.

Interested Readers also can google the name "LEROY McKELVEY" -- to read newspaper articles about a "devout Jehovah's Witness" who got into an argument with multiple attendees and ended up tasing 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.
