    They have taught that a woman should scream if she is sexually assaulted. They have also condemned bystanders who stood by and did nothing when a woman was assaulted.

    Concurrently they have taught that a Christian should never resort to violence of any kind. Your options in a violent situation are praying and calling the police.

    --Well the value of a scream lies in the fact that it is a call for help. It's not always advisable for a someone to yell for help when assaulted, but if they choose to, it would be because there is at least one able-bodied individual within earshot who will come running to help frighten off or subdue the assailant. This could easily entail (gasp!) violence.

    The JW's have no business making an issue over screaming to resist a sexual assault while at the same time condemning every viable option a Christian bystander would have to actually help the one doing the screaming.

    Wearing colored shirts. What color should my car be. When someone inadvertedly says : Happy (insert holiday here) and you're not supposed to say: "You too!!". Saying Bless you, when someone sneezes. What movies you can and can't watch. In my area, anything "new" is right away dubbed as being "innapropriate for a Christian", from the time JEANS came out to the latest 2012 movie. But as time goes by, and more and more witnesses do it, the thinking seems to lax.
