    Why is reading apostate publications similar to reading pornographic literature?

    Why -- Because they're both frowned on by the WTS leadership, and they have the "right" to "protect" (control) their membership's spirituality.

    Why not -- Because the comparison is ridiculous. Apostate publications are quite diverse -- some bitterly attack the WT Society whereas others are more scholarly. In any case, people don't generally read apostate publications for their entertainment value. They're trying to learn something.

    The only comparison I can think of is that if you are in a JW family, you would have to hide the literature from other family members, and read it in secret.

    Good points so far

    WTS literature contains articles illustrations/photos that
    I consider degrading to women, children and men alike

    I mean women with hankies on head, in dresses, picking vegetables
    Woman denied speaking and teaching
    Young children in ties handing tracts out door to door
    Men in suits getting rebuked by other men in suits for .........whatever
    Double standards between the elite and rank and file
    Faithful (deceived) people dying because of arbitrary rules

    These things are harmful and truly pornographic

    many years ago, at least in my hall if you read an apostate book, while it certainly was not recommended or a good idea, you would not get DF. now it seems that if you even posses a book thats apostate, you will get DF.

    Why? They both teach you things the society doesn't want you to know.

    Why not? You can only masturbate to one of them.

    Why? They got some beautiful stuff in em.

    Why not? It's only for adults. It's not for everyone, ultraconservatives, for instance, the kind that soaps up the shower faucets, so he can't see himself naked;) Or, that showers w his clothes on.

    I did not equate the two. Guess I need to hide my computer under my mattress.
