There's an old Kingdom Hall here that is now a VFW hall. I go past it almost everyday.
You won't believe this: a KH turned into a church!!!
How do they get the demons out of a former church?
Have a garage sale! Demons can't resist clinging to low cost cast-off rubbish!
Doing business with the ruthless enemy as the JWs perceive it, Christendom in other words, is fine as long as they get the money for the property. In a way the WTS is cooperating with an enemy with whom the R&F must have absolutely no dealings even doing any repair work on their buildings is not allowed.
Who else could use an oddball building like that? I like the cross, plus the "trinity" curved entrance door.
As an aside, I attended a rollicking Baptist service in the depth of Harlem. They were renting the ancient building from the local Jewish community. THEN the marching lambs and lions decor' made SENSE.

Have seen this being written in the kingdom ministry many times. A dub business owner can probably be disfellowshipped for such!
double standards, and hypocrites!!!
I know of a KH that was sold to another religious group in my town, I guess god looks the other way when the money is put on the table.
God is the greatest commodity of them all isn't he.

You make a very good point: The ultra-right JW cannot even go to a wedding ceremony in a Church, but the ultra-right elders/WT can sell the property to a church and perpetuate what it is seen as a "danger" to a JW.
I just recently came to know about a relationship that ended basically because the groom's mother said "I am not going to the Church for the ceremony. Period".
Very ugly hall. I love the cross in the window!!. LMFAO
bttt for the Friday crowd.
I wonder if a person made a house out of it, if the JWs would make a house call?
