    Yet they are hounding people to waste money on a tablet they cannot figure out how to use for field circus. An ice cream cone costs quite little. A Crapple iPad costs something like 200 to 500 ice cream cones, depending on which model--yet they insist on Crapple. The Samsung and Dell equivalents, using Android and with equivalent capacities, cost maybe 50 to 100 fewer ice cream cones. Plus, data plans--some of those data plans add another 25 to 40 ice cream cones per month in cost.

    Telling children they cannot have any fun because the money is for the Worldwide Damnation Fund, yet insisting everyone buy an expensive iPad (instead of a better Android system) seems a waste. Maybe they are starting to enact their ban on entertainment--you know, the one they buried under so much verbiage in a resolution in 2006 and no one even realizes it. And, if you are not so inclined, you should not be wasting money on a tablet you are probably going to get little to no utility out of. If you do want a tablet, get the one best matched for what you need it for, not what the Filthful and Disgraceful Slavebugger wants you to get.

    They're not trying to get the children to donate. They're just trying to guilt parents/adults with that story. If a little kid can give up $5, surely you can put off that trip you've been saving for and give us $5,000.00.

    I can't wait until they try and say they don't ask for donations like Christendom! I've heard more about donating this year then I have my whole life as JW. Everything other talk it's about giving of your physical things.

    Targeting the kids to give money is something even other religions shy away from. They're an absolute disgrace. Really. It's old people for the legacies and kids for anything which might brighten up the misery of being inside that vile cult. I'm proud of myself for typing that without the string of Anglo-Saxon epithets they really deserve.

    Very, Very impressionable on young minds. Images of children giving money to the Borg!! Especially in ''economically disadvantaged'' countries.

    Sorry WT! You will never again get our

    circus $,

    ice cream $,

    Disney World $

    Movie theater $

    Popcorn $

    candy $

    grocery $

    vacation $

    education $

    retirement $

    The return on a WT investment is a big old heaping pile of GUILT as demonstrated by the OP.

    Suck it WT! You will never get another dime from me! And shame on you for using children as pawns for your greed.

    The infamous "ice cream video"


    reading the letter we are reminded of a dedicated donations website , and a dedicated donations phone line. At Conventions one sees a prominent desk for credit card donations

    The more they ask for something, the less they are likely to get it.

    Its plain to see what god the GB members really worship. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    In spite the WTS soon to collect over a billion US for its sales of its most valuable real estate properties,

    the GB still wants children to give up their candy and ice cream money. .

    Despicable cads.
