    Yeah, just remember,

    The blood in any person is in reality the person himself.. poisons due to personal living, eating and drinking habits... The poisons that produce the impulse to commit suicide, murder, or steal are in the blood. Moral insanity, sexual perversions, repression, inferiority complexes, petty crimes - these often follow in the wake of blood transfusion."

    Watchtower, September 1, 1961, page 564

    So don't go crying to the WT when your 83 year old grandfather gets a sex change and turns into a nymphomaniac who steals cigarettes from the local drug store, kills the cashier and then turns the gun on himself. All on you at that point!

    Thanks for that brilliant quote NeverKnew

  • problemaddict

    That quote is fantastic. I marked it and plan to print it out. It is just madness.

    Pterist, do you have any back up for your assertion? I do not believe anything has officially changed, and this is a subject fairly close to me. I could see an "allowing" of doctors to make their decisions, to technically absolve the person getting blood of the sin involved since they are not making the decision. I love these loopholes!

    Marvin has on his blog a particular form that is along these lines for children, that comes from Canada. Pretty interesting. None of this changes the fact, that the same ol same ol blood policy is still in effect.

    Great quote Never Knew!

    I think many JWs are getting confused and are looking for "outs". I noticed old BLANK DPAs at some long time JW relatives homes recently, when I asked about it they said "we hadn't gotten around to it" (months later).

    A local elders wife had a whole blood transfusion and nothing happened to her. She simply claimed she was "medicated"and didn't know. The Doctor claimed he was given a "go ahead by a family member"..the Elder said he didn't know which Witness kid said yes and he had gone home from the Hospital when it happened and didn't have money to sue the Hospital.. It was all very well staged.

    Case closed. Happy elder, happy(alive) wife, happy doctor.

    He said that its up to your conscience and quote " if you see me at the hospital with a bag of red liquid, You leave me alone and I'll leave you alone". She said nobody really thought anything about it which shocked her because to her that was a huge statement._____The redeemer

    That CO repeated what was in the August 2006 Awake. On pages 11-12

    " As for the various fractions derived from those components and products that contain such fractions, the bible does not comment on these therefore, each Witness makes his own decision on such matters________August Awake 2006 page 11-12

    " Some manufacturers now process hemoglobin releasing it from human or bovine red blood cells. The end product is called HBOC. Scince the heme is responsible for the rich red color of blood, a unit of HBOC looks just like a unit of red blood, the primary component from which it is taken.

    HBOC can be stored at room temperature and used months later. Hemoglobin is derived from blood. The hemoglobin from which the HBOC is derived, makes up a significant portion of that component. Regaurding this and similar products, then, christians face a very serious decision "_______________August Awake 2006 page 11 Grey box


    The WTS is clearly slippin' and slidin' towards New light on blood. Be it ever so gradual.

    Yep, The Witnesses can now take a whole bag of red liquid which has more than a fraction

    but a SIGNIFICANT part of blood fractions that have been ...................STORED

    poor JWs,, this percent, that percent,,this color, that color,, it's overwhelming,, how can they define it all,,hopefully they just all get very "medicated" to get around it,,and adapt "don't ask, don't tell" and just leave me alone!!

  • Honeybucket

    seems to me most "changed doctrined" has been by mouth nowadays. Making it official in a magazine would open up a whole can of worms, but if all the do's and CO's start mentioning these things, other witnesses start jumping on the band wagon. Like with this new light, has there been any watchtower article about it? I dont think there has, but the co's and do's have had parts at the meetings and assemblys about it. They change things slowly so its less noticeable.

    So- I think this is completely possible, they have done crazier shit

  • wasblind

    on page 11 on the right hand side of the August Awake 2006
