Judge Rutherford, apparently had a special hatred for Catholics. Since he really is the founder of the JWs (having hijacked it from Russell) you can see his fingerprints all over it.

my father learned to hate catholics at home (a russian orthodox mining town) and at bethel.
he seemed to have no fervor pouncing on a protestant.
preaching against catholics at work put him on notice that he would be fired if he continued.

this one was from an elder's wife.
she has been quite ill for some time.
the sad thing is, i do like her.
serenitynow maybe it was a regional thing - Hitler being in the new order- I grew up being told he would be there. I was told, he deserved a second chance just like anyone else. Really pisses me off now, chose not to believe the way they do, Jehovah has a special death planned for you, and we are going to make you suffer until then, but hitler, he's cool.

my all time favorite is "blackadder's a christmas carol".
A Christmas Story has become tradition on our house. I don't have the nostalgia of what others have, because they grew up with them. I have had to build my own memories, and Ralphie is a big one for me.

i am doing a personal research project and looking for examples of how the watchtower usurps jesus postion.
scriptural or wt references would be great.
This is my new favorite "We need to obey the faithful and discreet slave to have Jehovah's approval." Watchtower 2011 Jul 15
Omit Jesus totally.

the jws were out in our area this morning and i bolted downstairs before my wife could waive them away as she normally does.. two ladies (mum and 24 year old daughter i later found out) initially stopped as i opened with a comment about how i couldn't trust a thing they say because they are taught to practice theocratic warfare.. the mother blinked and asked me what that was ( so it began ) i informed them both that they are allowed to lie or at least be evasive with the truth with worldy people.
she countered that they are taught not to lie so i again asked her if she knew what theocratic warfare meant and she again said no (first of my many - 'please go look that up' statements .).
i then moved onto the idea that they couldn't think independently outside the organisation due to fear of being disfellowshipped and shunned.
Way...to...go. I seriously wish I would have woken up before the local JWs knew me. Armed with what I know now, I could have had such a good time haha.

a self professed jw has slandered me in the comments section of a youtube video i have posted.. he has called me a "stupid apostate" and accused me of causing violence against jws, both of which are false slanderous lies.. i am not complaining about this as i am thick skinned and know to expect this sort of response from critics when i put my stuff out before the public.
i am sharing this so that everyone can see an example of the sort of hateful behavior recent watchtower articles have spawned.. .
If it's Justice4vr I think his faith is starting to shake. I had a 4 day convo with him. In the end, we just decided we weren't getting anywhere.
He attacked one of my videos, actually attacked me personally. I just laughed it off kind of thing, and wasn't going to argue with him. He asked if I was going to block him, when I told him no, I had no reason to. Disagreeing was perfectly ok or something like that. Ended up a nice convo. In the end, his last arguments were like "but we go in field service". He never really showed signs he was shaking, but he was grasping for the lame excuses.
I am now seeing him comment on many vids with info based on what we talked about. Could be just wishful thinking but in my wishful head it looks like he is he checking out some of what I said. Wishful thinking is seeing lame arguments, like he is running out of steam. Could be wishful thinking.

i see these movies lately, that show men and woman having sex as a friends without 'planned' emotions.
who then fall in love, and end up having to admit that sex without emotion was not possible.
i wonder though, do you really think this is the case.
For a long time after I left, I was broken. I had no idea what real feelings were I just knew how to bury everything and put on the smile. I had plenty of sex without emotion. I actually thought I was doing the guys a favor by loving them for a while and then just leaving. I just thought everyone was cold, and I was so shut off emotionally myself.
I don't think I could do it now. I'm not so broken now.

from the march 15, 2012 wt, pg 17 para 10. today there are better ways to reach not millions, but billions including those in china, india, and arabic countries where they don't even know the name jehovah.
i guess stockpiling billions in cash and property are more important than spreading the "urgent message" hypocrites!.
"the example of a small group of.
It's busy work. Busy work that keeps bringing people in unfortunately. Maybe not as many as they once did, and certainly not enough to cover those who are leaving. Unfortunately some still do get suckered in.
The setting themselves apart is another big issue. I can't tell you how many JW I have had discussions with that see thru all the BS, but that is the tiny thread they hold on to "who else is going door to door"

"yes he does love me....it's just a bad time now with the kids and all...and money...he doesn't love her anymore, it just the kids....he said we can keep meeting at $40 hotels for "awhile" longer....till he sorts things out...and we can be together.".
this could be 1955 or 2011 and dumb girls still fall for this crap????
I just don't know why anyone would want to marry a known adulterer. Never made sence to me.
I know there are many reasons people have affairs, and you can't judge any unless you have been in their shoes, but I personally never understood the marrrying them after.
