Fun Christmas Facts

The JW Scrooges have posted about how evil Christmas is. So I thought it would be nice to look at the other side of the coin, So I looked up some fun Christmas facts.

It is often said that more people commit suicide on Christmas than any other day. Actually not True Snopes.com )

Each year there are approximately 20,000 Santa's in the US

The average American family will spend $770 this year.

87% of Americans feel Christmas should be about family more than gifts.

50% of charitable giving in a year happens between Christmas and New Years.

1.76 Billion candy canes are produced each year.

The holiday season is prime time for retailers. December 2010 saw a total of $27.2 billion in sales. This was a 44 percent increase in sales over November 2010.

Charles Taze Russel, the founder of Jehovah's Witnesses had no problem Christmas at all:
Even though Christmas is not the real anniversary of our Lord's birth, but more properly the annunciation day or the date of his human begetting (Luke 1:28), nevertheless, since the celebration of our Lord's birth is not a matter of divine appointment or injunction, but merely a tribute of respect to him, it is not necessary for us to quibble particularly about the date. We may as well join with the civilized world in celebrating the grand event on the day which the majority celebrate - "Christmas day."" Zion's Watch Tower 1904 Dec 1 p.364

Colossians 2:16-17 - "So let no one judge you in food or in drink, or regarding a festival or a new moon or sabbaths, which are shadows of things to come, but the substance is of Christ.

To hear her talk you'd think that ALL jws have a special circle around their heads (think halo, LOL) that prevents them from exercising wrongdoing of ANY possible kind....but all NON-jws are dropping in the streets having illicit sex with anyone they happen to encounter, getting drunk out of their minds every night and hoarding illicit street drugs in huge amounts to "party" every chance they get.
It's about time she woke up and realized that people in the WTS are not as pure and innocent as they like to pretend and as she says they are....and that the world is filled with countless nonjws who are God-fearing, sweet, kind, loving, thoughtful, law-abiding and a delight to know.
Her one-sided and extremely biased outlook is so very skewed and nauseating, to say the least.
You are late getting started, but that was eight inches.

And there was not a word of truth there.

That is all your typical exaggerated palaver.

I would never speak like that.

You know I have no idea who she's trying to convince? It only takes a simple Internet search to see they are no better then any other religion. Maybe she thinks if they say it enough they (?) will believe it??

Christmas Crime Wave Threatens to Ruin the Holiday Season

"Thousands of dollars in Christmas presents and gift cards that had been collected throughout the year were stolen from St. Anne’s Parish outside of Boston. The gifts were intended for the Giving Tree, which supplies gifts to hundreds of poor children. The saddest part of the story? The church’s Volunteer Coordinator Elaine LeBlanc said that they would have gladly given the thieves anything they needed, so long as they asked.“I feel very bad for them, that they think they have to scavenge for whatever their problem is,” she said."

The elders always go in 2s and never talk to the wife without the husband present. After all it is a shepherding call for both, DUH!.
I was in the truth in the 60's. Never heard of any such thing. There are isolated cases of marital infidelity, just as there were in the early Christian congregation in Bible times. Nothing has changed.

And, of course, people are disfellowshipped for such things. It is not tolerated as it is in Christendom and in the world.

Look at the feeble excuses for illicit behavior going on in a congregation....knowing this of course is not an isolated case! It was a long time ago (so what...things have gotten worse every year) it was only one KH (riiiight)....it is not only amazing to see what WTS followers will conjure up but the fact that they actually POST it as "truth" just boggles the mind.

LilRed gets marked a B minus for effort, though, LOL!

anyone notice that all EE posts is DENIAL and NEGATIVITY. There is never anything upbuilding or encouraging in her posts.

I would be surprised if I wasn't bashed for this comment, but I have gotten used to it.

Yes, that is what the WT does, it is indoctrination of men and how lies become truth and truth lies.

lil red is NR? how would she know how many elders counsel or go to see couples if she is not baptized therefore does not know what happens in the inside???? or is that public knowledge?

as for ee you see how negative she is. wait she will begin posting pagan material remember the threads she put up.
she should see how many elders are murdering their wives and children and keep her nose that way and say hey what is going on... my org is going down with lawsuits and more will go public.

does not want to hear this but she is up there is condemning all other faiths who had the guts to go forward and admit they have a problem. she lives in a false world. always negative always hateful always mean and so sad for a woman

oh well the lord shall meet with her on the day she leaves this world to meet him he will judge her hateful ways.. we all need to pray for her soul and for the Lord to forgive her..
