    FadingTruth - "I suspect many of Aquila's experiences are embellishments or fabrications."


    Not a single one he's told seems implausible to me.

    Some of 'em are pretty tame, IMO.

    From the Shepherding The Flock 2012 :

    Por·neia involves immoral use of the genitals, whether in a natural or in a perverted way, with lewd intent. There must have been another party to the immorality—a human of either sex or a beast. Willing participation incurs guilt and requires judicial action. It is not a casual touching of the sex organs but involves the manipulation of the genitals. It includes oral sex, anal sex, and manipulation of the genitals between individuals not married to each other. (lv p. 99; w06 7/15 pp. 29-30; w04 2/15 p. 13; w00 11/1 p. 8 par. 6; w83 6/1 pp. 23-26)
    Pornei a does not require skin-to-skin contact, copulation (as in penetration), or sexual climax. "

    I guess that substantiates Aquilla's story,although I don't think the definition used to be like that.

    A lap dance is the same as adultery, what a bunch of lunatics they are.

    @ Pistoff...

    Well, in their defense, if I was getting a lapdance, I'd find it too damn hard to not touch her (despite any hands-off rules), so... :wink:

    (FTR, I'm married, so I don't put myself in a position to have to resist those temptations.)

    Aquila are u making this up...?


    Fading truth,

    That's the second time you've insinuated that John is fabricating stories. His account sounds legit to me. I have a family member who is an Eldub, this is what he learned in Eldub school: " When the Governing Body says "Jump!!", you say, "How high?", while still in the air!!"

    He was so happy to learn this vital truth! So crazy shit is said behind closed doors. The weak eat it up, the strong eventually notice and cry "Bull Shit!!" Then they leave, leaving only the weak. The WTBTS loves this vicious cycle, just look what happened when Boozerford took over. The strong left, the sycophants remained. Their descendents are growing ever-weaker in body, mind, and soul.

    I would bet if you went to 6 different eldub schools in the same year, you would find a note here and there that weren't given everywhere else!

    I remember many closing DC talks, given by so called GB members, no two DC'S heard the same things! And sometimes, nobody else heard what was said at yours!

    Why would anyone question the validity of Aquila's story? I've known and have heard of a lot of stupid reasons people have gotten DFed. I've even been told by an elder (my BIL) that an investigative committee will be formed if they find out you've gone to a strip club.
