Funny how the reason that JW's say no to a lot of stuff such as doing toasts or politely saying God bless you when someone sneezes, is that their origins were pagan. As a JW, I never really agreed with this. What does it matter what it meant in the past? It doesn't mean the same thing anymore. Then they give you some stupid illustration about candy in a gutter or some crap. Never really flew well with me.
So here's my question. Why then, when you bring up the origin of the Watchtower, all of the sudden origins don't mean anything? "It doesn't matter what they did or taught then. What matters is what we are doing now." Another hypocritical JW viewpoint.
