I can't speak for minimus, but I'm surprised at how many people have jumped to the Catholic Church's defense.
Well, I am not sure that what is happening is actually a defence ofthe Catholic Church. I think people are merely trying to answer the question that Minimus raised, which I will remidn you was :
I Do Not Understand Why JWs Leave & Become Catholics!
Encapsulated within that question is a presupposition that finding one religion to be flawed theologically, then it would logically follow that another one is flawed also. That of course does not follow. Perhaps the question would have been better posed if it were worded: 'Why Do People Become Catholics', not why to XJW's become Catholic.
My own suggestion which I will quote again:
I own the full run of the Catholic Encyclopedia, I also own a full run of Insight on the Scriptures. Let us just put it this way, Catholic Theologians are rather more catholic than is the WTS and they are also far more advanced in their scientific and Biblical knowledge than Ted Jaracz and his lifeless flock of career compromised pseudo-scholars. Perhaps this has something to do with it.
...is that a person who has been versed on WTS theology, basically founded on the brain of a handful of suspect scholars like Frederick Franz, are suddenly presented with an overwhelming body of well preserved and established theology from Augustine to Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, it can be a compelling discovery. The Catholic Church has, for example, had no issue with evolution since the 50's and has long adhered to the concept of ID, before it became the refuge of the defeated Creationist.
I have been both a Catholic and a JW, and as far as I am concerned 'a pox on both their houses', but it is no real mystery as to why the Chruch would appeal to the mainly shallow religionists who stumble from the cult.
