    Here's a good quote :)

    The more I read my Bible the more I veered away from the Jehovah's Witnesses.
    Quotation of Cliff Richard

    I saw an interview by Piers Morgan of Cliff Richard last night - and he came across as a thoroughly decent man. If I am as fit as he is at 70 then I shall be very pleased indeed!

    Yes, I saw that too, highly recommended!

    They will hate anyone who is gay (like Elton John). They will hate anyone that has heard of the witlesses but has rejected them (especially anyone that was once a witless).

    They also hate someone that puts out a song titled "Devil Woman". Cliff Richard did a song called Devil Woman, and it was a US hit in the late summer of 1976. They assume his other songs are also dirty, even though they are not (and I could not really find anything especially dirty about "Devil Woman", since it is warning the audience of such a being).

    Notably, the slimebag that dragged me into the cancer hated Journey and told me that all Journey records were off-limits, automatically.

    I never heard of him before, seems like quite the legend for the Brits. I loved his house in Bermuda;)

    I do not know any JW that hates Cliff Richard unless they just do not like his music.

    Last night I took my whole family (6 of us) to the Cliff and the Shadows 50 th aniversary tour. The night before another family from my congregation went as well and I know several others did.

    Hank Marvine is a JW. However he does not do much in the way of the house to house ministry becasue most peopke according to his think it is a jock TV show and do not take it seriously when he knocks on thier door. See the following linmk where this is reported

    Hello Ben57 and welcome!

    I agree, the opening comment in the thread is a bit of a blanket statement.

    I am not a fan of Cliff's music but I was impressed with him on the program :)
