jwfacts: "Even Jehovah uses the word please." Neither of the Scriptures referred to at the start mention Jehovah saying please. I wonder what passage they are referring to, and why they just throw some random unreferenced comment like that in.
Yeah, it's really an interesting thing. The more I objectively examine this religion the more I realize that the Bible is really just a prop.
jwfacts: Firstly Caleb runs in demanding food, yet in the replay he walks in before politely saying please. Is that some subliminal message that good children should not run?
Exactly. WT publications are chock full of manipulative language and images. Pretty much every "Study" article has pictures designed to manipulate JW behavior. Some of the manipulation is obvious, some much more subtle.
To me the picture I captured in the OP is a prime example of that. I think it's actually disgusting that they think children should adopt a submissive posture that resembles begging when simply asking their parent for something to eat.
It's offensive to any reasonable person.
