    Mrs Ozzie and I are enjoying a week in the Blue Mountains at a convention (no, not a District Convention!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)

    Where at? Aussie? There's a Blue Mountain Retreat at New Ringgold, PA that has a ex-JW convention held every year on October. Is that where you are or a entirely differently location of the same name?

    9, 10, 11 and

    12 Why do they accept help from the Red Cross as a group and as individuals during disasters when JWs are not allowed to contribute to the Red Cross?

    9, 10 and 11

    and 12(other) - while they beat up a ruccus about their "wonderful deeds", I think of the meek young people I personally know from round here, who are currently giving their lives look after the aids sufferers in third world places, a nd not for any "heavenly pay" either, nor for the cover of preaching crapologistic crapology.

    and thankfully they won't be glorified for it in a magazine of their own making.

    Greetings Ozzie and Mrs. Ozzie...glad you're having a good time away.

    I always thought:

    #12 Other: We can always count on our brothers and sisters to be there for each other to help out in a crisis because of our unique love and concern for each other. Yikes! was I really that naive?

    The trouble with that answer is that one time, after I pridefully made that comment when some disaster struck somewhere, someone asked me "why do you only help JWs in need....what about other people who are suffering right beside them?". I was embarassed at how selfish my belief had sounded.

    That probably was another time a seed of doubt was planted and contributed to the huge field of questions starting to grow in that vast wasteland of JW brainwashing inside my head.

    #5 and #10

    No. 11. Why only to Jehovah's Witnesses?

  • Xena

    #11 - even when I was a JW I thought it didn't feel right....

    good day to you mr and mrs. Ozzie

    at first I thought #1

    now it's a strong #2, just bragging, making themselves look good.

    which is closely related to #7 showing off.

    #10 why is that they don't help out every day? that brings me to #12 I hated it that they didn't support charities with nothing more than a piece of paper.
