just read it all.
I think the JDubs will take things into their own hands as they do everything else and flat out refuse to do this.
might be better to put in the actual link or cut and paste the item...
i am hesitant about clicking on 'click me's'
You mean this? --"Mr Cameron said the programme - currently lasting three weeks duringthe summer - would be compulsory for every 16-year-old and would capture the spirit of national service."- Not likely to make much of an impact.. http://www.jehovahs-witness.net/jw/friends/7733/1/WTS-Deception-on-Alternative-Military-Service
yes thats it. I dont thinkk it will either... but then all politicans are all talk and no trousers anyway.
I would love to see a compulsory period of service for every young person here in the U.S. They could be given a choice of military or civilian service (like a domestic Peace Corp.), but I would rather see it for a period of one year minimum. Three weeks won't make much of a difference, but a longer period might help young people regain a sense of pride and purpose that appears to be missing at present. Imagine the good that could be accomplished if every young person had to be disciplined and focused on a purpose.
As to JW's, they would make this out to be a violation of their civil and religious rights...unless that compulsory service could be done at Bethel!
JWs would claim they're "neutral."
