When all the old timers (responsible people) die off, what will the religion be left with? The religion is out of its mind to keep harping on their anti-education stand because they will not attract responsible people. The people left there in the prime of life are paying bills and supporting families and are not inclined to give money even if they had it to give. Nowadays, I would not even want to be there. Anybody barely hanging on to their job will be targeted left and right by needy people looking for handouts!
I also feel the religion has some of the most materialistic, covetous people I ever met in my whole life, perhaps with the exception of a family on my block where I grew up. I was only a small child (6-7), and I first became aware of people who were covetous and always remarking if you had something "new" and saying they couldn't "afford" this and that. This is rather young to become aware of such things. I really became aware of the term "materialism" and what it meant when I became a JW because I was, quite plainly, surrounded by people who were looking at what everybody else "had". People who are jealous tend to make you feel self-conscious, even if you are not pretensious. I felt these people were bad to be around and were not good for my "head". I work for a living and deserve to enjoy the fruits of my labor and don't need this crap.
