The problem here seems to be that some are too quick to make broad statements about the witnesses based on isolated cases.
My first reaction was anger at this threads title. I was raised a witness, my family goes 5 generations deep in the witnesses.......and nearly every witness I knew had pets. Those that didn't were usually some self rightous pioneers who felt cleaning out kitty shit from a litter box was to damn distracting from Jehovahs work......and THESE TYPES were far and few .
My question is......why start a thread on something that is NOT the norm for witnesses in general.....especially whe you KNOW many witneeses do indded have pets. Nearly every single poster who has commented has disagreed with this threads title and realises witnesses do indded have pets.
I for one don't like to start false shit on the dubs. They have PLENTY of authentic problems to discuss without resorting to some dipshit oddball family who was different, then claim all witneeses are the same way.
