I have talk to some JW about this subject before even asking that here on Topix. The JW said that there is segregation of blacks in the kindgom halls southern states because of race issues, yet blame the racism that exists in their state and not any belief of superiority by the JW themselves. Yes it would be an issue if based on race I agree and understood your previous comments about the segregation for convenience because of language barriers.
I simply think that JW do not even know their own religious history or care to really research it and would be a sin to question it, which could cause their expulsion from the sect.
Atheists and agnostics provide a excuse to give JW's an uneasy alliance with the Christendom that they oppose. You can see how they compliment each other especially on claims they agree with on Topix that opposes scientific and historical evidence.
Unlike atheist who require testing ,evidence both historical and material, the religious are not held to the same strict standards that may be required by a scientist or others who would require more evidence of claims made.
It will be interesting to see in 5 or 10 years how time and discovery will change things.
The ENGLISH Congregation I attend we have Hillbillys (Me+ some from Kentucky)) Jamacians, Africans, Hatians
several American Blacks, a lot of Pureto-Ricans, You name it we've got it with no class,race or nationality differences.
I know that might be hard for you to believe but it is pretty much the same all over the world!

Oh and one more thing I was talking to a black Jehovah's Witness today who is from Jamacia and he attends the Phillipian Congregation simply because he wants to learn the Phillipian language. He would also like to learn Japaneese but there are not enough here to form a Japaneese Congregation. A lot of Pureto Rican and Mexicans attend our English Congregation wanting to be able to speak better English. Another thing that will blow your mind is the fact I only have 9th grade education in the hills of VA,but I have been well educated in the Bible by attending the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses for over 40 years. And many others can attest to the same!

You are just so intellegent you know more than the creator! I would say you are about ready to head up your own religion.
The big question you need to ask is: "Does My Religion Please God?"
Well, that would depend on which god, wouldn't it? The wrathful vengeful jealous god of the OT or the loving, forgiving, jealous god of the NT?

O.K I will just stick to other things, like the holy spirit(watchtower) was wrong again.

Raymond Franz claimed that in 1980, unease with doctrines surrounding the significance of 1914 surfaced within the Governing Body. In February of that year, three Governing Body members—aware that those who had been alive in 1914 were dying out despite the teaching that their generation would live to see Armageddon—proposed a doctrinal change to identify the "generation" who would see Armageddon.

Many years ago three soldiers, hungry and weary of battle, came upon a small village. The villagers, suffering a meager harvest and the many years of war, quickly hid what little they had to eat and met the three at the village square, wringing their hands and bemoaning the lack of anything to eat.

The soldiers spoke quietly among themselves and the first soldier then turned to the village elders. "Your tired fields have left you nothing to share, so we will share what little we have: the secret of how to make soup from stones."

Naturally the villagers were intrigued and soon a fire was put to the town's greatest kettle as the soldiers dropped in three smooth stones. "Now this will be a fine soup", said the second soldier; "but a pinch of salt and some parsley would make it wonderful!" Up jumped a villager, crying "What luck! I've just remembered where some's been left!" And off she ran, returning with an apronful of parsley and a turnip. As the kettle boiled on, the memory of the village improved: soon barley, carrots, beef and cream had found their way into the great pot, and a cask of wine was rolled into the square as all sat down to feast.

They ate and danced and sang well into the night, refreshed by the feast and their new-found friends. In the morning the three soldiers awoke to find the entire village standing before them. At their feet lay a satchel of the village's best breads and cheese. "You have given us the greatest of gifts: the secret of how to make soup from stones", said an elder, "and we shall never forget." The third soldier turned to the crowd, and said: "There is no secret, but this is certain: it is only by sharing that we may make a feast". And off the soldiers wandered, down the road.

Liberalism thinking has become a religion in itself. Those with that particular mind set worship at the altar of pro choice, environmentalism, animal rights, gay marriage, etc. They have no problem infusing these beliefs and doctrines into modern education. They need to be more diversity minded and not be against other beliefs. I say the more people know Jesus the Christ, the more we increase our chances of saving this country from the collapse we are racing toward

Tenure is not immunity, it merely provides a process by which a position is not terminated without due cause. How ironic is it when ignorami think teachers are the bad guys?

So the christian cult is the majority? Well that explains the vastness of Internet porn, strip clubs, bars, pedophiles, murderers, rapist, thieves.
Most people who do not believe in "god" will claim to be christian when confronted in public about religious beliefs to avoid persecution. The number of people who go to church at least one day a year makes the christian cult a very small minority.
The true number of "christians" is about one fourth of the claimed number.(even most Satanist will lie and say they are christian to avoid losing their jobs and having protesters outside their homes)
