    WT 1973 p568. Says.

    "Did you know, for example, that mothers and fathers that stroke the genitals of their fretful babies to keep them quiet are unwittingly encouraging them to become maturbators later on?"

    what sick fu... writing this article thought the the average person did this to keep kids quiet.

    Yes! In what world was that ever an acceptable practice??

    The very notion is odd!

    The writer was probably a pedophile writing about one of his sick fantasies.

  • LevelThePlayingField

    I agree, probably a pedophile. But I've seen this article before and thought that I never heard of such a thing, ever. The first thing that crossed my mind when I read it for the first time was literally, WTF. And at the time I was fully in, and I still cussed.

    We are doing a long-term study on genital stroking.

    We have had a few brothers volunteer to undertake the study.

    Please bring your children.

    Yes...that is a sick one! This is a very disturbed group of people. Why the hell they put that in print is beyond me.

    I heard this wa the practise in Thailand, where different mores are prevalent than among prudish puritan pilgrims.

    Be carful if you are a young man and sleep on your stomach may cause masturbation,

    not in print but my nephews were told that at Bethel....

    Sounds like something straight out of the sexually repressive fantasies of Fred Franz.

    They must be running out of trumped up "issues" to raise.

    No topic is off limits in the Watchtower and during the Watchtower study no matter how age inappropriate they may be. I can't imagine what new people or visitors must think when they hear this stuff. Luckily, new ones are a rare occurrence in the Kingdom Hall.
