    So what do the resident jw apologists have to say about this thread?

    I find that they either don't reply or stupidly try (to no avail) to still defend the witchtower!

    With so many Dubs on the window cleaning treadmill I wonder how many have got a job cleaning the windows of other places of worship?

    Like painting a church, the act of cleaning its windows also gives powerful assistance to the promotion of false religion and thus beelzebub himself.

    JDub window cleaners are you helping Satan? STOP now!

You can be sure that this interview was scripted by local elders. Yes,the WTS will LIE to the public and promote theses contridictory disinformation media "puff pieces". Jesus said that his followers would be the "salt of the earth" not the scum of the earth-Danny Haszard

    I always wondered about when Kingdom Halls are sold to churches also.

    I mean, since (in most cases) Kingdom Halls are "dedicated" for worship, I never heard of any "un-dedication" or something.

    I guess then the Kingdom Hall would be disfellowshipped after it is sold.

    Good post metatron. False = "not Watchtower" and Truth = "Watchtower." Just look 'em up in the Newspeak dictionary... "His mind slid away into the labyrinthine world of doublethink. To know and not to know, to be conscious of complete truthfulness while telling carefully constructed lies, to hold simultaneously two opinions which cancelled out, knowing them to be contradictory and believing in both of them, to use logic against logic, to repudiate morality while laying claim to it, to believe that democracy was impossible and that the Party was the guardian of democracy, to forget, whatever it was necessary to forget, then to draw it back into memory again at the moment when it was needed, and then promptly to forget it again, and above all, to apply the same process to the process itself -- that was the ultimate subtlety: consciously to induce unconsciousness, and then, once again, to become unconscious of the act of hypnosis you had just performed. Even to understand the word "doublethink" involved the use of doublethink."

    Here is one for you all. I had this come up and I sent a letter asking if I could work for a church. The reply letter said no and I would be DF'd if I did. The church threatened to sue me over religious discrimination. Now this is the funny thing, at the next assembly the C.O. came during the session and asked me to go with him, he took me away from everyone and told me how I could work for the church and get myself out of this problem without getting in trouble with the Society or the congregation. He said Incorporate, he said that is how his business did it. He said if I incorporated I could do all the churches I wanted and not be in trouble because I worked for the corporation and not for myself making it allowable. He said even the Society does this.

    I did not know at the time what he was talking about that the Society does this but they do can anyone one say Rand Cam.

    Then, into what category does the Watchtower Society fall, after its 120 year history of false prophecy in saying that

    Armageddon is "Soon"? If they have been dead wrong across more than a century, in setting dates and encouraging

    false expectations, how can they pretend to be anything except false religion? Does "false" MEAN false?
    same catagory the ones who wrote the bible who they took their B elief S ystem from .... it was the bible authors who many times said it was SOON....
