New "Jehovah's Friend" video - Lesson 3: Pray Anytime

    My parody version has the schlocky music gone and the soundtrack is her prayers.

    "Jehovah, please find daddy a job so we can have food again."

    "Please slaughter my schoolmates who are not nice to me."

    "Please make elder McFeely stop touching me in the back room on Wednesday nights."

    As one who was raised in the religion and often scared shitl*ss by its violently unforgettable messages of upcoming destruction, I find the video incredibly bland and boring. Too much icky sugar man.

    Replace some of the identifying words (e.g., "Jehovah") and you get a video that is virtually interchangeable with any number of current Bible-oriented religions. The Watchtower is giving increasing evidence that it is becoming more and more like the soft and squishy Seventh-Day Adventists.

    You think JW kids will love it and rush to remember the words? Of course the little darlings won't. Like kids all over the world, they'll clap their hands for a minute or two and then rush on to do something else with Mom and Dad harping at them to learn the words. Now under that kind of willful circumstance I can imagine JW parents being determined to hold their children's hands - family prayer or not - real tight: " Now learn the friggin' words, honey!"

    Yeah, actually pretty nondescript. What religion wouldn't this video work for?

    I'd love to see someone with the time and creativity paste together a JW remix of the old "Davey and Goliath" claymation series. That was some classic animation/guilt-mongering!

    I've never seen a JW kneel in prayer, never .

    Lol dmouse. I was thinking the same. Caleb hasn't forgiven mum for throwing out Sparlock.

    It creeps me out thinking of my nephew and niece singing this song.

    Oh Gee thanks! One viewing- I'm thinking it's kinda sweet, and Now I can't get the tune out of my head. Thanks a lot! Very catchy.

    This isn't even close to being as offensive as the infamous Listen and Obey (Sparlock) videos that were put out at last summer's distrct convention. This looks almost like a Sunday school type song. In our day, in the 60's, there wasn't anything for kids.

    Dammit! I can't get the song out of my head.

    Come on now faint-hearted ones: The tune is cheaply derivative, interchangeable with thousands of other kiddie songs: Composed to hook in the little darlings and get them singing "uplifting" sentiments. Yeah right. Like that will keep the little monsters from later leaving in the organization. Singing sweetly while pulling the wings of flies and giving your baby sister Chinese burns with the biggest "who me?" look you can muster .

    They call that music? I don't.

    Not to mention, what are you going to lose trying to be joke-hova's friend? That thing will simply use you up and throw you away. And that is what Satan struggled so mightily to prevent joke-hova from doing. The last thing Satan wanted was for joke-hova to seize all the benefits of our existence and not let us enjoy anything ourselves. And joke-hova wants us right back to being enslaved. You think someone that wants you to be enslaved to itself is a friend? Especially one that will lie about, and blaspheme, the One that truly wanted us to be free? And wanted it badly enough to do something about it, even knowing it would result in being made to suffer and in blasphemy?
