monthly broadcast "serving while raising a family"
Yup. The JWs that preach to younger ones about not going to college are all middle to older aged ones that grew up in a time where a high school diploma might have been enough to get you in to a steady job. I can't tell you how many times I have seen this. I know particularly one sister that got into an excellent government job with just a HS diploma and now she makes upwards of $80,000 a year. So of course because she did it without college, all the younger JWs can do it without college...never mind that her job description now requires a college degree.
Whenever I see those "____ Explains His Faith" I want to scream, because they are glorifying educated ones, but refuse to have their own young ones be educated. But when they need someone's convoluted "expert testimony" they'll go through the R&F to find someone who's educated to stock the bill for them. How can they villainize higher ed to young ones and then call for "expert testimony" from people who went through years and years of higher ed??
