SPECTRE- Indeed, someone had to write that crap. It was mind controlled drones.
RETROVIRUS- It is disgusting indeed that the WT society tells JW's to only earn enough money to look after their " basic needs ". What if emergencies come up ? Even basic needs can't be met on wages these days without a college education. So the WT society is really intruding past proper boundaries by saying this to Witnesses.
TALESIN- THe Jones are beautiful people. Hearts of gold.
SIZEMIK- Very well put by you. The WT society IS seeking only their own selfish gain at the expense of young people's careers and future. It is calloused and insensitive on the WT society's part to expect that young JW's can make ends meet and earn a decent living on minimum education. Really sad.
ZIDDINA- Thanks for marking !
AUSSIE OZ- Very true what you say. The WT society has held this anti-education stance for many years . I'm glad your dad didn't fall for it and did not accept it. I bet he's glad he dodged the bullet and left the Witnesses.
LONG HAIR GAL- Exactly. Hypocrisy, pure and simple. The WT society will educate their own higher ups for the benefit of the Witnesses , but look down on rank & file Witnesses getting a higher education. If that's not the pot calling the kettle black I don't know what is ! I have seen women put down as well many times not given same opportunities as men in the cult. I saw lots of JW's scammed by other JW's in ponzi schemes when I was a Witness also. Just sick.
MAD SWEENEY- You make a very good point that the JW children raised with a more lenient view of college during the 1990's WILL be hard to rein in by the WT society. And that's a good thing. Hopefully many of that time period will exit the Witnesses and seek freedom and peace of mind. And hopefully the new generation of young ones will rebel against the stricter " no college education " standard. One can only hope !
CADELLIN- Your post didn't show. Try again please.
MRS. JONES- I'm glad you are there for your son's friend. Awesome. He deserves a good education like your son and all other young people deserve . Good job .
TRAILERFITTER- I think some JW's follow this advice from the WT society, some do not. It depends how fanatical and hardline each Witness is. Any that can get a college education should do so
