This Apostate over here hasn't stumbled anyone in any significant way yet (apart from perhaps a noob or two on this and other sites), and yet I sleep soundly. HMMM.
Once again, typical Bible-book-chapter-verse bouncing is employed, yup, standard methods of YouKnow, no surprises.
YouKnow, you and I both know that if you took away all the dumb (and sometimes utterly ludicrous) laws and commandments of Dub life, there wouldn't BE A DUB LIFE. Face it - the GB are a bunch of Pharisees, making thousands of tiny, silly rules, all day long - that's there essential function in life.
If God's Organization allows people to die, families to be split, and children to be molested and doesn't do something about it promptly, there is no way you're gonna convince me that it's God's BOrganization. Not to mention the extreme chauvinism (the likes of which are all but extinct today). You didn't perchance read the thread where someone posted an old Awake about the role of women, did you? I was so angry after that that I had to play Quake for an hour before I could speak to normal people again without accidentally ripping their heads off.
Smaller brain size eh? EH?

URM. REALITY CHECK REQUIRED. Some of these innocently labelled 'stumbling blocks' of yours caused many people to DIE IN VAIN. Get it? DIE. The Ultimate Sacrifice. Over 'Stumbling Blocks'! Your Governing Body is composed of a bunch of murderers.
It really is such an amazingly beautiful series of interlocking systems that comprise what a human is. It's too bad we're working backwards from the object code, everything would be simpler with the source and a comment or three thrown in.
