    Do not raise your glass of Guinness and say Cheers!, it's pagan.

    My wedding ring is pagan. That's OK.

    Jehovah's Witnesses believe that it would be sinful to save the life of their dying child with a transfusion of plasma or red blood cells.

    i think it's strange that organ transplants are ok, but blood transfusions are not. I just recently awoke to this one....i find it hard to believe that a harvested heart from a recently living human wouldn't still have a fraction of blood left pumping in it somewhere...i mean they don't stick a hose in those things and squeeze em to rinse em out, now do they??? wouldn't that also then have to rule out heart transplants from being ok? they have a list of PARTS of blood that are ok, but a heart transplant would have small amounts of the complete blood make-up in it.....shouldn't they come out with a friggin Awake article on this??? outlaw the blood, then outlaw the blood pump!

    /rant lol apparently i'm feelin feisty today

    Tai chi and yoga are immoral and spiritistic, but acupuncture is a scientifically-proven curing method that deserves coverage in Awake!

    Men who have raped children are told to go door to door? How much sense does that make.

    If a woman doesn't scream out for Jehovah when being raped, she committed fornication.

    That you have to stop associating with your relatives when they no longer believe in the religion; or that you shouldn't associate with your "worldly" relatives because they are not witnesses.

    No birthday cake or gifts; but you can accept money anytime.

    You have to look like salesman even when visiting the bethel.
