The tax thing is a great point, I hadn't thought of that, I knew about the God putting a hook in the jaw of ...was it Satan, or the governments? Anyway, yes I think some of them are stupid enough to buy into an idea that social/cultutral revolution CAN happen overnight, when in fact it can't/won't/it's wishful thinking so they can be right and demolish all of us wrong people.
heathen-I gotta tell you-they are nowhere NEAR being persectued as much as they like to whine about. This was one epiphany that I still can't get over. Schools in the US don't even have 'Christmas' celebrations (the majority that is) they have 'holiday' celebrations, and this year my 4th grade son will not be having any celebrations because the schools are trying harder and harder to please everyone. People with traditional christian lifestyles are bending over backwards to accomodate other lifestyles including Jewish, Mexican, Buddhist, etc. and the JW's are benefitting from it. I'm afraid they haven't had cause to bitch and whine since the 1930's and 1940's and they still can't stop talking about it.
