    But its the suggestive, leading and manipulative comments that make me get annoyed...The plug for GB...the leading way all kids must Love Jehovah etc...

    This is nothing new they have been doing this as long as I can remember. Same old tired cult tactics.

    Quarterback...In reply to your question if anyone is sure: James Gramblin is in the Makawao Congrgation in 'Upcountry' Maui......I believe his associate Cate is also in the same Kingdom Hall, if not the same congregation.

    Can someone describe what the video is about? I fear I might puke if I actually watch it.

    It's about how the Caleb videos are made. Aprrently the GB, faced by the lovable Tony, give their teaching requirements to Caleb who posts it through the door of the "animation dept" and then the production process is shown. It's just like how Disney would do it and very professional.

    Having said that, the "animation dept" is an outside agency who we now know to be a JW owned business with nice offices and run by a college educated JW animator. I wonder if all that work is being done on a Bethel stipend? On top of that all the audio recording is being done in state of the art WTS facilities paid for with the hard earned dollars of the faithfull.

    There is of course more context to all of this and it's unfair to impute bad motives to the creatives but aren't the WTS lucky there are some college educated specialists who can turn the Caleb tripe out without question.

    Thanks . I bet it's laced with comments about how blessed jws are to have these videos and how they should appreciate them because of all the hard work that's gone into them and how cutting edge Jehovah 's org is and how blessed the audience should feel to be part of it and keep being obedient.

    It's a shame that all that work and creativity is directed in such a deceptive way. It all looks so cute and sweet but as we know it has a dark underbelly.

    I find it particularly chilling watching AM III interacting with the cartoon Caleb like some kind of cuddly jovial uncle figure, having seen the REAL man in action on other videos where he can be seen coldly instructing parents to practically force their teenage children into 'voluntary' baptism then completely shun them if they dare to break any of WT's super controlling rules including using their young minds for independent thought and attempting to break free from the restraints of the cult. He shows no mercy and no concern whatsoever for any danger they might be in having been thrown out into a world they are totally unprepared for.

    He is certainly no kind cuddly uncle figure on THOSE videos!!

    Its funny.....the first time I clicked on the JWN site to open it....I felt a kind of sick feeling in my stomach (was still holding on to JW doctrine at the time, so I was afraid of "apostates")

    I got the exact same sick feeling today when I clicked on to check out those videos (my first visit to their site) is all just so wrong and discusting-
