    Scully - You must override your personal conscience in favour of WTS rules, even when you know it's wrong.

    Scully you nailed it.

    I personally abhor the fact that they willinlg hide and protect deviates - predators, pedophiles.

    Restricting educational opportunties and personality development, self-esteem, and an understanding and appreciation of one's role in society is reprehensible.

    Blood "laws" murderous

    Inequality of females, sexism, etc

    Believing in a literal Devil and demons, nothing says you are stuck in the Bronze Age like telling your contemporaries you believe in literal devils and demons.

    Telling people that putting their lives now on hold is best, no marriage, no children, not owning homes, dying for a false doctrine, abandon contact with non-jw family, friends, neighbors, higher education, etc., and telling them if they don't they are second-rate, third-rate Christians. And convincing them that this "sacrifice" won't continue in their version of paradise.

    Everyone have their own home, but where and style and size pre-determined for them by the organization.

    Not grow produce for others they eat themselves, but come second, give first to the elders, then the second crop is theirs, or will it be.
