"And Jehovah has blessed us with diesel fuel"

    When I read these eye witness accounts from Haiti

    like Jehovah is blessing His people with diesel fuel

    and food my brain begins to bleed. The JW's make

    it sound like God came down from heaven on his fiery

    charriot with a 50 gallon drum of diesel sitting in the

    back of the charriot. How about the hundreds of thousands

    of other Haitians who have received fuel, food, and

    medical attention from countries all over the world

    and from the good efforts of so many churches. I guess

    that is not from Jehovah, it is just a stroke of good luck.

    I had a dear Witness friend who recently died. He was

    having surgery and died on the table. He was an elder,

    pioneer, family man, role model in the congregation.

    I am sure that everyone was praying for a successful

    surgery but he died. Maybe Jehovah did not hear their

    prayers or maybe he just doesn't care.

    It's all about them

    It's always been about them

    It will always be about them

    They are a cult

    Rinse and repeat. Rinse and repeat.

    Interesting article in the paper today about the Catholics, Protestants, and Voodooists in Haiti and their take on why this happened.

    Lot's of finger pointing. Ah religion

    Designs - I didn't see the article - why WHAT happened??? The earthquakes (fault zone slippage, obviously...) or the poorly organized method of getting emergency supplies to the earthquake victims??? Zid

    Oh I had to listen to this BS today.. how witness are always there FIRST to help out or close to it.. and how the army comes and remarks they wish they could organize and feed the masses like witnesses do.. Totally ignoring all the stuff EVERYONE is doing to help out. People all over the world are going there and organizing drives to raise money and help out. It's truly a beautiful thing to behold. So far I haven't seen a witness do anything, I asked today if someone knew how "our brothers were doing" NO ONE NEW!!! Were is the love and concern??? Of course I know cause I come here.. LOL sad out the out ones care more than the in ones...

    They are the most ignorant, selfish pigs on the planet, end of story.

    They preach that they are no part of the world, yet when they need help from the world they gobble it up like vultures, and without any conscience. (I am not referring to Haiti, BTW)

    They are nothing more than shit in society, but thankfully charitable organizations have pity on them and do not return evil for evil. A fine lesson for all of us, no?


    The "unanswered prayers" are always ignored...

    Do they really think that the same God who gave them *diesel fuel* would let thousands of people die and not care at all?

    God doesn't do charity work, PEOPLE do.

    Few things torque my knickers as much as a person who benefits from the charitable act of another human being looking that person in the eye and saying "Thank you, Jehovah." My name's not Jehovah, you idiot! Give it back and wait for him to help you.

    The JWs simply do not want to acknowledge the actions of individuals. They hate, yes, hate, individuals!

    Everything good is attributed to their imaginary creator jehovah.
