    I am betting they may be preparing to cut WAY BACK on foreign language support.

    Was wondering the same thing Sweeney. At first, my thought was "printing two english editions is not cost cutting." Unless...they plan on centralizing their publications to English and cut back on all the other languages they print. Then that is cost-cutting.

    Agreed cantleave...especially in regards to this simplified brochure it does raise the question: who ARE they targetting? The regular one was far more basic than the simplified Watchtower. It didn't NEED to be dumbed down more. Who needs one sentence per page?

    Wow. Eve is stunning there.

    The look on her face as she takes it in her mouth..........

    I have to admit if I was a person at the door and a witness started showing me this I would be insulted. This brochure is pathetic. They must be going for the very dim witted people if this is there idea of getting people interest. This reads like something you would see in a daycare center.

    Man the WBTS has sure went downhill since I left. When I was in the mags and brochure actually looked interesting and gave some compelling arguments even if they were dead wrong.

    Now it's just follow us or die. Only JW's know what the bible says.

    And the artwork is horrible. Everything is out of perportion and very poorly drawn.

    What a waste of paper and time.

    I read the first version and kept asking myself what else they could possibly do to simplify it any further. I then opened the link to the "simple" version and just started laughing hysterically. They reduced each page to one sentence or less and made it into a picture book! It's on an even lower level than the material I read to the 2nd graders at work!

    I'm glad I wasn't the only one who had some naughty thoughts after viewing Eve getting ready to devour the fruit. That looked super erotic, almost as if it were intentional, as if to say that Eve became a dirty slut, porn star status whore when she ate of the fruit.

    And my favorite little gem was the Leave it Beaver scene on page 26 where rather than saying what is taught for "already-in" JWs such as "wives should be in subjection to their husbands", they whitewashed it in order for it to be palatable to the general public. It says "Wives should cooperate with their husbands", and then shows a picture of a humble, subservient housewife preparing a lunch for her hardworking husband.

    Is Eve going to try "the snaky lick trick" before she gobbles that trobbing fruit? (Google "snaky lick trick".)

    ...and, did she have altoids?

    hmm.. i think i have seen at least 50% of those images before. is this just copied from the paradise and revelation books or something?

  • factfinder

    It is pathetic! Yes the publications have gone way downhill (in content) since the 70's and 80's.

    The simplified one must be for 2 year olds-this is the best they can do?
