    The Greek philosopher Diogenes supposedly wandered around carrying a lit lantern, purportedly looking for an honest man. In 1919, the Watchtower Jesus supposedly wandered around looking for a religion that had "The Truth".

    As Ex-Governing Body member Ray Franz said in one of his Books, (I quote from memory) : "To say that they were chosen in 1919 on the basis of what they taught then, is an Insult to Jesus". I would add, also an Insult to our Intelligence.

    I rather like Diogenes of Sinope, the First Hippy, especially his dictum that Virtue is best displayed in Action, rather than Theory !
