Medical supplies from the FDEM?? Get real.
Any money that the JWs didn't spend on bottled water and Gatorade could be spent on a new roof. Individuals in the congregation pay taxes, not the organization. So how much of those supplies did y'all offer any of your disfellowshipped amigos? Let me guess, could it be - NONE?
What other religion? Any that are tax exempt, of course. Baptist, Buddhist, or Bohemian Tulip Worshipers - take your pick.
If you have the means to pay in to the system and finagle a way not to, why should you get any MORE freebies when the sh*t hits the fan? Print a half million fewer sheets of toilet paper and buy an insurance policy like everybody else.
Do you know what is the richest organization on earth? CATHOLIC why not go pick on them for awhile they don't help their own!

How did you get the notion that I don't lump Catholics with Baptists, Shiites and JWs into the same seething mass? I hadn't heard that Catholics had asked for any FEMA or FDEM supplies, but if they did I'd not spare them the speech. When a Catholic gets uppity and starts proselytizing their sect and pushing their agenda(s) on the rest of the country, be assured I "pick on" them, too.

I suppose you never heard of the Crusades and the cruel Inquisitions when the catholics forced (not by proselytizing) their religious beliefs on others, especially the Spanish countries and the American indians! Have at it! Go for it!

Yes, namely the pyramids of Giza, in the desert, on the outskirts of Cairo, where it would take camels and carts, to haul boats, to de Nile.

Khufu ship
The reconstructed "Solar barge" of Khufu

The history and function of the ship are not precisely known. It is of the type known as a "solar barge," a ritual vessel to carry the resurrected king with the sun god Ra across the heavens.
-----
The desert...
Hmm..archelogical evidence of eight (8) different types of animals (not including aquatic creatures)...where ever would be all the "critterlife" that we know of today? Pre-evolutionary?

According to archeologists, the Sahara was much more densely populated more than twenty thousand years ago when the desert's climate was not as arid as it is today. Fossils, rock art, stone artifacts, bone harpoons, shells, and many other items have been found in areas which today are considered too hot and dry to inhabit. The artifacts were located near remains of giraffe, elephant, buffalo, antelopes, rhinoceros, and warthog, as well as those of fish, crocodiles, hippopotamuses, and other aquatic animals, indicating the presence of lakes and swamps in the Sahara.[5]

Between twenty thousand and twelve thousand years ago, severe conditions returned and the Sahara was largely depopulated, except in highland retreats where there were springs and surface pools fed by aquifers. By ten thousand years ago, gatherers and fishers had reoccupied the replenished lakes, streams, and swamps. There are some traces of possible agriculture from eight thousand years ago, and more verifiable evidence of cattle-keeping in the mountains by seven thousand years ago, perhaps in response to more arid conditions. That population would leave again three to four thousand years ago as conditions deteriorated. The Sahara became a largely impenetrable barrier to humans, with only scattered settlements around the oases but little trade. The one major exception was the Nile Valley.

And camels...where were the camels for 1200 or so years?

The earliest crossings of the Sahara, about 1000 B.C.E., were by oxen and horse, but such travel was rare until the third century C.E. when the domesticated camel was introduced.

I haven't seen any inquisitors or conquistadors typing ignorance on Topix. Let me know when you successfully resurrect one. Until then, the resident protestants will do.
BTW... catholic means universal. Capitalize Catholic when referring to the denomination.
Oh yeah, and don't forget that I'm STILL waiting for proof of Noah's flood.

Really? Research shows otherwise-

RNS-Catholic and other church-run health care systems in the U.S. are more efficient and provide higher quality care than their secular counterparts, according to a new Thomson Reuters study.

The study looked at 255 health care systems and found that Catholic and other church-owned systems are "significantly more likely to provide higher quality care and efficiency" than both investor-owned and nonprofit health systems.

There was no statistical difference between Catholic and other church-run health systems, according to the study, which built on information gleaned from Reuters' "Top 100 Hospitals" report.

"Our data suggest that the leadership teams ... of health systems owned by churches may be the most active in aligning quality goals and monitoring achievement across the system," the report stated.

The report was short on specific reasons for religious hospitals' success, saying that further study will be required to understand the differences. The performance measures included mortality rates, the number of medical complications, readmission rates, lengths of stay, profitability, and other factors.

The Catholic church in the U.S. runs 624 hospitals and 499 long-term health care facilities, according to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops.

"When your mission is rooted in Jesus who healed the sick, only top quality care will do," said Sister Mary Ann Walsh, a spokeswoman for the U.S. bishops. "This study confirms what many take for granted. The church leads in providing quality health care efficiently."

Thomson Reuters provides "information solutions" and data to businesses and executives in the health care, finance, legal and media industries.

When all you use in the Watchtower publications to prove your point you come up short. Do a little research man, its a cult.
As far as that goes, so are Oboma voter/worshippers, beer drinkers, hell raisers, dolluh lickers, material worshippers, the local garden club, national sports teams, anything that is organized en masse could actually, via that socioIllogically twisted and warped rather depraved pattern, just about lumpandlabelDuhm any and all personal preferences as "cults".

It is really not your choice either is opposed to Jehovah God!

The word sect and the word cult is prettu much the same. Do you know that the Apostle Paul and others were called the sect of the Nazarine (who were followers of Jesus)
So when you call Jehovah's Witnesses a cult you are putting us in good company. THANKS!
