    Thanks Atlantis, that is priceless. It is filled with an amazing level of senseless rules, and the blunt manner it which it is written makes it a goldmine for quotes.

    Interesting that it stated tabacco smoking does not stop a person getting baptised or giving some talks, but they could not be an MS or elder, or give instruction talks. Talk about nit picking.

    Agreed! It hasn't changed since the 'handbook' either.

    The men at the top are perverts. High on power and their own egos. I believe that 1 or more of the GB ARE paedophiles.

    After a masked man broke into my house through my bedroom window in broad daylight and violently attacked me (not raped) the first question I was asked at the KH was "Did I scream"? I was unaware of this "doctrine" at the time and was completely gobsmacked at being asked this prior to be asked whetherI was ok!!!!!!!!!!!

    Splash - Thanks for all the research! Instead of the Watchtower Society it should be the Waffle Society.

    Jeez - Pick a lane!

    All I can say is WOW.

    Atlantis, I cannot thank you enough for posting that.

    The argument I use most with my family (without attacking doctrinal issues) is that I felt part of the Pharasees and that the organization, whatever the original intent may have been, has morphed into this out of control judicial system, with bible principles (funny how the organization uses that phrase, but doesn't allow people act on principle) and logical Christian reasoning being replaced by law makers and law enforcers.

    Shepherd the flock? Nah.....rule with the laws of the WT society keeping everyone in fear. One slip, and you are most likely gone.

    I think the society's position on rape should shock and appall any logical person. When I was an elder and had to research some of that stuff, I was disgusted. It was another piece of the puzzle that helped me leave.

    I have been building a library of how this judicial "law code" evolved in the organization. This is an invaluable tool for my research. Many thanks!

    I can't take credit for all of that, but I don't know who to give credit to.

    Probably 90% is due to JWFacts.
