Oh wow...now I have seen everything! "Junior Pioneer"??
H'mm nothing culty about this at all is there....
In the past, I have posted on websites like that regarding the Society's request to not make things like that and how obedience is required. (I find focusing on adherence to their rules is a great way to highlight how the religion creates an intolerable lifestyle, especially when followed fully.)
Also, it would be beneficial to current jws to have this material removed.
I just went there to do that and noticed these are free--still not ok per wts rules, but may not end up getting a DMCA takedown notice.
Only 30 hours a month?! C'mon.
Hell, back in the day, we kids did that in a week, peddling magazines to everyone with ears and a few coins.
I placed Awake! magazines with my puppy - they ended up dog-eared -but hey! Placements count. I had a magazine route with real people taking magazines twice a month. Up at dawn, on my bike riding round the rural territory - no coffee breaks. Just hard slog. We were made of stern stuff. 1975 spurred us on. Everyone not in the ark of salvation would be dog-tucker.
Of course, by my early twenties, the dog was dead, the bike was stolen, all the magazines I laid my eyes on were worse than dog-eared and I was plain tuckered out. It still took me years to recover from my engrained spiritual righteousness - it was like second nature - and still is.

I don't get tired of talking about how much those folks at the WT don't give a rat's ass about children. I rest my case.
Well, I agree, they don't care about children, and reading about long term older Bethelites kicked to the curb I have to ask, who do they care about?
