    Heh heh, I got a few chuckles out of your comments, Winston Smith. Outstanding job. I've thought about going undercover myself. I really want to help those people, but they don't seem to listen to me. I've brought up concerns before, and they just bounced off. But I'm not giving up. I don't like to leave friends behind.

    Thanks, Winston. Just hearing the current ranting and raving causes me to picture the thumbscrews being tightened on the ones in attendance. What a bunch of hoocha!

    I really appreciate your taking time to post the notes....I'm not at all tempted to go to a DC but just hearing their current directions makes me glad I'm out.

    Wow. Rutherford wrote most of his books while he was drunk. (which was most of the time anyway). But, he was a drunkard and according to their teachings, he's ruling up in heaven with Jehovah as one of the remnant. So, Drunkards CAN inherit the kingdom of God.

    Interesting thing about Rutherford being an alcoholic. I've never seen that denied in any chat room discussion nor heard any witness deny it when it has been mentioned. They'll jump to the WT's defense so fast usually too.

    Winston, thank you so much for giving us a synopsis of the convention! Much less painful than actually sitting through it, so I hereby give you a cyberhug and cyberbeer for your trouble. Here in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area the conventions (usually 3 of them) are held on consecutive weeks in late June and early July, just in time for REALLY hot and humid weather. Of course, in order to save money, the temperature in the Ft. Worth Convention Center is kept as high as they can get away with, except for the Administration departments. Walking from the parking lots to the center is grueling hot, feet sizzling even in sensible shoes. No breeze to relieve the strangling feeling of pantyhose and sensible skirts or to relieve the stench of urine from the homeless people who sleep in the areas around the convention center. Truly a happifying experience. Bleah. Don't miss it, not one little bit!

    Loved it Winston. Really looking forward to the rest of the post. I'm finding it amusing that you're now paying close attention to the talks. I read the Watchtower and Awake! from cover to cover these days...for amusement value. When I was a dub, I'd never v olunteer read that crap. Keep up the good work, and please be careful. Your wife will be destroyed if she's known as the "Apostates wife"

    "Jehovah’s Glory Revealed to Humble Ones"

    TRANSLATED: The followers must be humble and follow the leaders unquestioningly. The leaders must claim to be humble but be arrogant Bastards..

    "Relying on Jehovah in a Time of Distress"

    TRANSLATED: Just a teaser to elicit 'expectational' feelings of anticipation and vague apprehension into the church masses

    "Avoid the Snare of Alcohol"

    TRANSLATED: Weve put you off drug use thru fear of demonic possession. And put you off sex thru guilt over 'thought crime' . And weve put you off watching films thru terror of the wrath of the angry God. Booze is the only thing left so now we are having a go at that.
