    The average JW is supposed to think that "Truths on the March" are okay, but "Lies on the March" are not.
    Good point.

    One thing is certain, IF God exists, the believer should never fear the atheist.

    .................................................

    The top is fake and that group is harmless.

    The bottom picture is real and these people are very dangerous!

    They will brainwash you into believing that getting a life saving blood transfusion will kill you in their God's eyes. Many have died in the name of this dangerous 'Printing Religion' They force their views onto you and they annoy the world with their stupid preaching/propaganda work. If you happen to fall under their spell and join, you might even get sexually molested by one of their so called leaders/elders. Get lost!

    Nut cases, they should be banned, why doesn't the world follow Russia's lead and ban dangerous cults?

    It takes greater faith to be a true Atheist.. my simple mind thinks there is too much beauty in this world for their not to be a Creator/Designer. My hat off to them, I say.

    Podobear - Reading that Awake and researching athiesm and athiests shows that in most cases there is some belief structure and respect for what they see as order in the universe/world around us. What is usually shown to be the reason for the resisting of religious belief is the Jehovah that will cruelly kill off billions including helpless little children as the witnesses teach and are more than willing to use their "god given talents" to illustrate with colourful artwork, just in case the nightmares you have had about it are not vivid enough. And of course all religion seems to do this.

    Wow, what a sentence. The first part couldn't be more wrong, and the second part, well all I can say is it says alot about you and your thinking process.

    *** g73 1/8 p. 10 My Life as a Gypsy ***
    A Different Kind of Religion
    By 1942 I was married. One day I came home and my wife told me that two women had called and talked to her about the Bible and its promises for a better future. Being inclined to ridicule anything that smacked of religion, I showed no desire to discuss the matter. Later, in northern Scotland, a man called at our camp and played a Gramophone record for my wife while I was away. It really impressed her that the man had the courage to play a record exposing world religion as a snare and a racket. My wife gave the man a meal before he went on his way.

    Was this "religion as a snare and a racket" before or after that sign that says "Religion as a peace-maker" in that picture above?

    Why yes, Athieism is dangerous, uh, to the jobs and finances of religions and their employees/writers/clergyman.

    I hope somebody sends the article to Pat Condell when it comes out. He'll make a lovely video about it.

    So how do I get to go on an "Atheism March"?

    God the WTS's "department of lies and fabrication" must be working overtime.

    Good point. At least the lecture "Government and Peace" that is also mentioned on that picture was held in 1939. A talk by Rutherford in the Sydney Town Hall was announced (but prevented by opposers) in 1938, but I don't know if that was the "Religion as a Peace-Maker" topic mentioned on the poster.

    The "religion is a snare and a racket" campaign seems to have started in 1938. So it seems that the "religion is a snare and a racket" and "religion as a peace-maker" campains overlapped. That means "a snare and a racket as a peace-maker".

    Anyway, "religion is a snare and a racket" and "Jehovah's Witnesses are the true religion". Hence Jehovah's Witnesses are the true snare and the true racket.

    processor - looked at that picture again and on the sound truck it says "religion is a snare and a racket" so I guess they were already into the overlapping idea back then.

    Oh, you're right.

    I couldn't find anything regarding this "Religion as a Peace-Maker" lecture. Maybe it was about false religion as a counterfeit peace-maker?

    George, you beat me to it! Tee hee hee! Yes... beards are evil.

    The WTS and JWs are all about an 'Us vs Them' mentality. It helps to justify their isolationism and the ideal that they are God's Chosen. Of course, if you're an atheist, this means they were chosen by no one.

    Which also means the importance they place on themselves is all in their own delusional minds and has absolutely no value outside of their world.
