Does Damage Control On Secret Societies

    Rig Boy, the official website of the Jdubs currently has a piece that brushes on the "dangers" of secret societies. The writers are careful not to mention Freemasons/Zionists/Jesuits etc.... Yeah wouldn't want people investigating that. More interestingly, everytime a Masonic piece or other type of scandalous piece is posted on JWD, the Watchtower seems to put up a damage control/rebuttal article out to deny the allegations. Obviously the Watchtower is paying close attention to Jehovah's Witness Discussion Form. Keep up the good work folks!
    Here is the piece

    Secret Societies— How Great the Threat? Why All the Secrecy?
    "NOTHING is so burdensome as a secret." Or at least so claims a French proverb. Could this explain why we feel good when we know a secret but sometimes frustrated when we cannot talk about it? Yet, over the centuries many people have welcomed secrecy, joining themselves together into secret groups in pursuit of a common goal.
    Among the earliest of these secret societies were the mystery cults found in Egypt, Greece, and Rome. Later some of these groups wandered from their religious background and took on political, economic, or social overtones. For example, when guilds were formed in medieval Europe, their members resorted to secrecy primarily for economic self-protection.
    Secret groups in modern times have often been formed for quite honorable reasons, possibly for "social and benevolent purposes," according to the Encyclopædia Britannica, and "to carry out charitable and educational programs." Some fraternal organizations, youth clubs, social clubs, and other groups are also secret, or at least semisecret. Generally, these groups are innocent, their members simply finding secrecy exciting. Secret rites of initiation have strong emotional appeal and strengthen the bonds of camaraderie and unity. Members gain the feeling of belonging and a sense of purpose. Secret societies of this kind usually are no threat to nonmembers. Outsiders are none the worse off for not knowing the secrets. When Secrecy Signals Danger
    Not all secret groups are secret to the same degree. But those that have "secrets within secrets," as the Encyclopædia Britannica expresses it, pose a particular danger. It explains that "by the use of special names, ordeals or revelations," members of the top ranks manage to "set themselves apart," thereby stimulating "the lower ranks to the effort necessary to reach the exalted degrees." The danger inherent in such groups is obvious. Those in the lower echelons may be completely unaware of the real objectives of the organization, not having as yet progressed to that level of revelation. It is easy to become involved in a group whose goals and methods of achieving them are only partially recognized and, indeed, perhaps not even fully shared. But the person who has been initiated into such a group may later find it difficult to free himself; he is, as it were, bound by chains of secrecy.
    Secrecy signals even greater danger, however, when a group pursues illegal or criminal goals and therefore tries to hide its very existence. Or if its existence and general aims are known, it may try to keep its membership and its short-term plans secret. This is true of highly motivated terrorist groups that periodically shock the world with their terrorist attacks.
    Yes, secrecy can be dangerous, both for individuals and for society as a whole. Think of the secret teenage gangs that violently prey upon innocent victims, criminal associations like the secretive Mafia, white supremacy groups like the Ku Klux Klan,* not to mention the many terrorist groups around the world that continue to thwart efforts to achieve world peace and security. What Are They up to Now?
    During the 1950's, as a by-product of the Cold War, secret groups were organized in several Western European countries to serve as the basis for resistance movements should the Soviets ever try to conquer Western Europe. According to the German newsmagazine Focus, for example, "79 secret weapon depots" were set up in Austria during this period. Not all European countries were even aware of these groups. A newsmagazine realistically reported in the early 1990's: "Still unknown are how many of these organizations are alive today and what they may have been up to lately."
    Yes, indeed. Who can really know how many secret groups may at this very moment be posing a threat greater than any of us might imagine?

    Although this article debuted in 1997, it is on this week's front page of the web. * This U.S. group kept some of the religious elements of earlier secret societies by using a burning cross as its symbol. In the past, it carried on nighttime raids, its members being dressed in robes and white sheets and venting their rage against blacks, Catholics, Jews, foreigners, and organized labor.

    Rig Boy give it a break already

    Every piece of propaganda the WTS spews out about secret societies or other religions actually points right back to them. They have all kinds of secrets they are trying to hide and it has nothing to do with Masons or the illumionati. It's just their own sins they have perpetrated on their own followers and the world at large. I think they really believe as long as they are pointing the finger at everyone else no one will notice the growing mountain of crap under their carpet.

    exactly my point

  • DavidChristopher

    So does that mean they are saying Jesus was lying when He said "when there are 2 or more searching I am there in their midst"? Interesting. They call it "secrect societies"? Nice definition guys. Who among you invented that word, to decribe "Jesus' Disciples"?

    "Bible Students" or "Secret Societies"? Gues you were "secrect societies" at one time huh.

    Talk about propaganda....I Hope Jehovah has something for that ass too.

    Get ready boys......

    This has inspired me to add a little something extra to my website at:

    The new content I just added is in the nice yellow box.

    OK Let's think about this for a minute......

    If the WTS was in some way connected to the Illuminati or the Masonsdo you really think they would leaf evidence around for people to find?

    Given the state of the WTS and all the stupid things they try to get away with, do you really think some Illuminati or Masons or anyone else would have anything to do with this group of old men who don't know better than to print all kinds of crap, call it God's word and then keep changing their minds because they always have it wrong?

    Really. If you were a Mason or one of the Illuminati would you want to be in anyway connected with this group who gets nothing right? Who the heck would trust them?

    In the process of getting nothing right they have achieved their plans at destroying lives and controlling their masses. There is plenty of evidence that Billy Graham is a 33rd degree freemason....even Graham did not attempt to hide it as he mingled with the Demolays for boys, attended a 33rd degree initiation of former Grand Mason, Jim Shaw.
    This won't mean anything to do not know how the Political power structure works. If you are a CEO, COO, Politician, public official, public servant, etc.... you are likely a Mason. That is not speculation, that is just a fact. Anyone in a high position is likely a Mason or member of Globalist group like the Bilderbergers, Trilateral Commision, Council on Foreign Relations etc.

    First, thanks for the insult that I do not know how politics work.

    If you are a CEO, COO, Politician, public official, public servant, etc.... you are likely a Mason

    You don't really believe this. Do you?

    It wasn't an insult.
    First of all, you don't get into positions of power on merit. You don't become chief Justice because you won all your cases. If you are Skull and Bones, 33rd, 32nd degree Freemason, Knights Templar, Demolay, Eastern Star, you get in. This isn't conspiracy theory, it is well known. Even your president, George Dumbya, admitted being a member of the Masonic Skull and Bones, which Russell Trust (of CT Russell's family) owns. Was CT Russell in a high position of power? Absolutely. You need to read a book called "Bloodlines of the Illuminati," by Fritz Springmeier...full sourced and fully footnoted book.
