    Watchtower on Women

    Today I uploaded a new article to my blog. It shows an image that had quite a few husbands and wives coming to the congregation servants to have their mate straightened out.

    My article is titled Watchtower on Women and is available at:

    If you want to become a sexist, become a Jehovah's Witness. Thanks for this Marvin -- this is the stuff that really ticked me off with this group along with the blood policy. I posted a comment on you blog.

    The Aug 22 1967 Awake! magazine also published more crap about women. I don't understand why so many women buy into it. This is the kinda stuff that opened my eyes as a teenager.

    Once again, I wonder how this would go down today . . . Imagine offering an Awake with an illustration like that on the cover!

    It's a testimony to the WTS attitude on the subjugation of women . . . back when it was much less subtle.

    It also highlights how WT teachings are actually sensitive to the times . . . belying their claim to the unchangeable nature of their God.

    If you go to bethel today you will see this stepford wife thinking. The last time I did Temp. work I went with a brother my age who was only in for a few years. He had just got married to a sister. This was his first marriage in the cult. What he saw at bethel on how the sister fell all over their husbands he thought that was how his new wive should be. Will his new wive was a born-in both on there 3rd marriage. Boy did he have a big surprise when his wife would not do what he saw at bethel. He went to me to talk with them. I sided with his wife. He never said anything but he was mad at me for sometime. LOL Totally ADD

    You mean Housekeeping and the Laundryroom aren't the life goals of every JW sister at Bethel...

    T he Watchtower, October 15, 2011, page 14 paragraph 20 (Simplified Edition)

    ... If a man and wife do not consider the sexual needs of each other, one of them could be tempted to commit adultery. ...


    ... If a ... wife [does] not consider the sexual needs of [her husband], [he] could be tempted to commit adultery. ...

    WOMEN, you were made to please your man*, do not be depriving him of this pleasure or you may be guilty of driving him to commit adultery!

    * see Awake! 1/8/57 pg 18 published by Jehovah's Witnesses
