let's face it, thousands of people in one place together can be mesmerizing.
watching some of the videos for the witnesses conventions this last week, from all over the world you get the sense of what total brain washing can do.
happy people waving banners saying "see you in paradise.

wednesday: silent no more, part 3, the reckoninghttps://www.wcvb.com/article/silent-no-more-part-3-the-reckoning/27377364.
article about jws in newsweekhttps://www.newsweek.com/jehovahs-witnesses-child-sex-abuse-lawsuit-1454001.
the article is mistaken, the fire was at the big assembly hall.

why are for the most part brown-colored people held in detention centers?
where are the rest of illegal immigrants?i think the question is valid -- as one website noted: "the u.s. government does not maintain reliable demographics of who is in immigration detention..." (https://www.freedomforimmigrants.org/detention-statistics).
a canadian woman not too long ago said to me (spontaneously - i did not bring up the subject) the following words when she heard the live tv news broadcast, which dealt about the immigrants being held at dozens of detention centers in usa: "i am canadian, and i have been living here illegally for 29 years.

in view of the statements below by the wtbts hierarchy, how on earth can u.s. supreme court judges possibly be conned into accepting jw lawyers' claim/defence of clergy-penitent privilege in the $35m lawsuit?.
if you don't have a clergy, how can you have clergy-penitent privilege?
has no one in the u.s.a. pointed out to the judiciary that they're being duped?.

alex - thank you for your offer to have a conversation about evolution.. i accept the scientific evidence that all life - including humans - evolved from a common ancestor through unguided evolution over millions of years.
this isn't even a controversial position in the scientific community.. the evidence rests on the data from many interconnected fields including paleontology, comparative anatomy, geology and especially genetics.
it is no exaggeration to say that the evidence for your own non-human ancestry is contained in every cell in your body.. it is my experience that jws are generally quite ignorant (not in a pejorative sense) of the scientific case.

13. according to leviticus 9:23, 24, how did jehovah show his approval of the priesthood?.
when the israelites saw this clear evidence of jehovah’s backing of the priests, they had good reason to give them full support.
5:18, 19) how can we show our support for the organization that jehovah is using?
