    Well the title says it all, I have no access to WT cds and the like, is there even one story in any JW literature that talks positively about a worldly person that doesn't end with them joining the cult?

    (edited to add - damn, the title should say wordly people!)

    Sort of....

    .....See any articles about the UN from 1992 to 2001.

    I don't suppose that any JW would quote stories about the UN at least not to me! That would seem a very quick way onto very sticky ground.

    Be sure to remind the folks that those articles were ONLY in Awake! and ONLY in November, the same month the WTS was required to renew their membership in the UN to "prove" to the UN they supported the goals and principals of the UN. Most importantly, they were printed ONLY UNTIL the UN kicked their sorry asses out of that organization by disfellowshiping them for lying and hypocrisy.

    Even if one of these worldly youths did live by good moral standards, how could he be a good influence if he lacked love for Jehovah God and was involved with a false religion?

    that pretty much sums up how far they can go in their black and white thinking

    There were required to suck up the UN in order to get NGO status.

    Does that qualify?

    I'm sure someone can provide the scan of the Awake magazine pages.

    *** g98 11/22 p. 3 A “Long Job Finished” ***

    Eleanor Roosevelt, the tall widow of former U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt, told those assembled: “We stand today at the threshold of a great event both in the life of the United Nations and in the life of mankind, that is the approval by the General Assembly of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.”

    After she read the ringing phrases of the Declaration’s preamble and its 30 articles, the General Assembly adopted the document. Then, to honor Mrs. Roosevelt’s exceptional leadership, the UN members gave “the First Lady of the World,” as she was affectionately known, a standing ovation. At the end of that day, she jotted down: “Long job finished.”

    Even so, her experience as a mother evidently proved useful. At the time, one reporter wrote that Mrs. Roosevelt’s handling of the commission members reminded him of a mother “presiding over a large family of often noisy, sometimes unruly but basically good-hearted boys, who now and then need firmly to be put in their places.” (Eleanor Roosevelt—A Personal and Public Life) By adding graciousness to firmness, though, she was able to win points without making enemies of her opponents.
