    Watchtower’s Covergirl

    Today I uploaded a short article to my blog showing how Watchtower once did its covergirl spread.

    My article is titled Watchtower’s Covergirl and is available at:

    Does anyone else find it rather surprising that Rutherford was so keen on producing nude pictures of Eve?

    I have to imagine that the Society was every bit as prudish in 30's as it is today. Society in general was far less tolerant of even a hint of "immodesty", yet it was eveidently not uncommon for the WTS to produce drawings of Eve in all her glorious pulchitrude, even sometimes on the cover.

    "evidently" . . . love it

    It would appear they had a penchant for four legged snakes back then too.

    And I have to wonder about the Freudian connection with Adam "gathering wood" in the background?

    Don't forget the naked lady being tortured in Rutherford's book, "Enemies." I bet he got off on that one.

    Yet another oversexed and sinuous Eve compared to neuter Adam.


    May I ask how you find your treasures to post on your blog? Do you do definite searches or do you just leaf through and voila, the embarassments are plentiful?

    Believe it or not, it works like this:

    When I get the urge I go to my library and just pull a book from the shelf and give myself two minutes to find an interesting target. For me it could be a comical day, a studious day, a whimsical day, a news day, a teaching day, or a learning day, etc.

    When I flip through my library so many memories are recalled from decades back that it is not very difficult to stir something to talk about. And, I have tons and tons of stuff that I have not yet touched.

    However I feel when the urge hits influences what I pick, polish and publish. It’s fun and, based on feedback, helpful to quite a few. Sometimes I image certain illustrations just because they catch my eye and for no particular reason otherwise. Later on I might realize something of interest regarding the image and I upload and comment accordingly.

    The pic you showed titled the creepiest Eve ever, wow so much going on there.

    As I posted on that thread -looks like the makings of a 3 way between the angel and serpent and Eve.

    According to the Bible the angels left their positions b/c of earthly women. The wts is always fond of saying the demons attack women more for sexual purposes.

    So looks like Eve is something God made that everyone wants to screw (pardon my slang)

    back to my first observation... why would they want her? Is this where child molesters started?
