first , off, one poster here brought up a good point. how taking children to another country sure is not something that is easily done. has anyone ever known a jw 'family' with young children, to be sent to a foreign country to preach a illogical message to people completely in the dark about a mainly American religion? and to what end will this benefit those people?
not only that, its implied that they are taking the kids out of out of school. again, teaching that there is no value to keeping up with needed education .
who do they think they are? the Wild Thornberrys? lol.
[plus,we all know how awful it went when Christianity was being forced on the people hundreds of years ago].
to be irresponsible to ones obligations,of family pets, and farm animals, is ,IMO, against the scriptures. what is the message to kids , when parents show so little concern and responsibility to another living thing?
that they are not to be valued. and the lack of love for something that has brought joy, is totally ridiculous.
apparently, none of the GB has had any pets.
how then are Values to be taught when the WT teaches that nothing is of value in the world? There is no lesson to be learned about how to love and care living things that are dependent on humans.
and yet here they are saying well gee, toss the dog over to someone else, drag the kids out of school, take them from grandma and grandpa and aunt and uncle, and all their friends, make them insecure, and dont worry about it.
that's teaching disrespect and lack of care.
