The money beg and grab is startling, not unexpected, and reaffirms my perception that this organization is what it's always been, a publishing company. I agree with the posters that refer to early publication brags that Jehovah's backing this and will bring in the money or the publication will cease. I like the thought of the funds running out because all my family are in and I want them to wake up because I want them in my life. Even so, This stuff helps me shake the shadows of cognitive dissonance that creep up on rare occasion from a lifetime in the cult. I'm glad for it.
although, having been a very loyal believer for over 40 years, I can honestly say that I believe the GB to be honest hearted and sincere albeit terribly misguided and doctrinally at odds with obvious scriptural truth. Call them out for the scriptural error and Pharasaic BS, but don't stoop to personal assaults. You get what you give and become what you preach. You guys are free so use it to rise above. The golden rule still is a valid spiritual concept. The cartoons made me laugh though. But, I met him once at a CA and my kids had a photo with him. The man was very kind, warm, friendly and genuine. Please be more respectful.
did anyone see the George Carlin skit about the scam of religion? Super funny. Worth watching. I heard it recently when I watched Zeitgeist on Netflix. It's in the first half of the movie. Also, The religion stuff in that movie about Jesus is fascinating, how his birth totally correlates to the stars and positions including the three kings which can be directly connected to the 3 stars in Orion's Belt named the three kings. Check it out!
The the love of money is the root of all evil. Religion is a snare and a racket! Hmmmm I heard that somewhere before.
