    There are SO MANY things that you can't do if you are one of Jehovah's Witnesses. For example, you can't salute the flag or stand for the national anthem. Can you think of different things you can't do if you're a Witness???

    Interesting lists -- Blondie and Nosferatu.

    Blondie's list involves things you cannot do in public, while Nosferatu's involve mainly private vices. I'll bet a lot of JW's F***, eat P*****, swear, watch the Simpsons, etc. -- when nobody is watching!!

    The main rule for the JW's -- don't get caught!! If you get caught, obviously then you've lost Jehovah's holy spirit.

    You can't talk disrespectfully to the sisters, You can't play the lottery, You can't swear. You can't wear logo tee shirts. You can't talk to one of the opposite sex alone. You can't wear a beard. You can't get "feeling good"...........

    Trying to be specific about what is outlawed by Jehovah's Witness doctrine can be somewhat difficult, because the list is SO long.

    How about I generalize so as to shorten the list to one term?

    If you are a Jehovah's Witness, you cannot live an enjoyable life.
