Yes VM44, again the society™ plays it both ways to distance themselves from monetary loss.
The watchtower™ booklet Preparing for Child Custody Cases™ emphasises™ that the JW lifestyle™ is beneficial™ to the child. Near the begining it says "there is no need to hide or distort your religious beliefs".
However, the actual tactics suggested in PCCC™ are contrary. The children and their JW parent are encouraged™ to deceive the court by telling lies and presenting a fake lifestyle, fake ambitions and fake goals. The Society™ here actually
The Court is fed: "Many try to portray the beliefs and practices of JWs™ as dogmatic and restrictive… emphasise™ the fact that you have formed your beliefs and adopted your practices after much study™ and reflection™; your religion is not simply a matter of rules imposed by the elders™. You want to emphasize™ the fact that you are a thinking…individual™. PCCC p. 3.™
JW's are fed: "Avoid Independent Thinking™ ... questioning the counsel™ provided™ by God’s visible organization™." WT 1983 January 15 p. 22.™
The Court is fed: "Be careful™ they [the children] don't get the impression that they are in a demonstration™ at the circuit assembly™, when they would show that the first things in life™ are servic™e and going to the Kingdom Hall™… Be careful they don’t all say that they are going to be pioneers.™" PCCC p. 43.™
The Court is fed: "Plans can be trade, getting married and having children, journalism, and all kinds of other things." PCCC p. 42™
JW's are fed:"Should they marry now? No, is the answer supported by the Scriptures™. There is no reasonable™ injunction to bring children into the world™ before Armageddon™ where we are now." WT 1938 November 1 pp. 323-324.™
JW's are fed: "Many schools now have student counselors who encourage™ one to pursue™ higher education after highschool, to pursue a career with a future in this system of things™. Do not be influenced by them. Do not let them ‘brainwash’ you with the Devil’s propaganda™ to get ahead, to make something of yourself in this world™. This world has very little time left! ... Make pioneer service™, the full-time ministry™, with the possibility of Bethel™ or missionary service™ your goal.™" WT 1969 March 15 p. 171.™
The Court is fed: "In the past many have feared or distrusted mental care professionals (Psychologists and psychiatrists). There is no basis or need for such preconceived fear or distrust." PCCC p. 53.™
JW's are fed:"…as a rule, for a Christian™ to go to a worldly™ psychiatrist is an admission of defeat. It amounts to ‘going down to Egypt for help.’ - Isaiah 31:1… Also, more and more psychiatrists are resorting to hypnosis which is a demonic™ form of worldly wisdom.™" Awake! 1960 March 8 p. 27.™
The Court is fed:"Show that you are a loving and caring parent who wants the best medical care possible for your child… You do not want to give the impression that your religion requires you to allow your child to die should a medical emergency arise." PCCC pp. 5, 55.™
JW's are fed: "If she died [because of refusal to allow blood transfusion]™ she would have a chance for the new earth™. Stated bluntly, better to die now maintaining integrity.™" Awake! 1951 May 22 p. 5.™
and so on ad in finitum..
The Society encourages™ JWs to lie and deceive. It's ironic that the Society has also repeatedly lied to and deceived them as well. The Watchtower Bible and Trap Society™ has practiced "theocratic war strategy™" on the JWs themselves.
