    An Uber driver or an uber JW?

    Either way, it's a fine way to get kicked out.

    No, but if was a Jdub, this would not be too hard to defend. There things out there that are way better to confront them with.

    I would probably say that Tony is free to spend his personal money anyway he wants. Also, there is no evidence that all those bottles are only for him.

    The optics of the incident are bad, but once you get down to the facts, there are too many possible outs. Now if Tony had been caught in a porn store, then it would be something solid.

    redvip2000, lol don't you agree that porn stores also need to hear the good news? Who else than AM III would be a perfect soldier of Christ, being a Vietnam veteran who gained extra spiritual powers as an anointed GB member! Telling porn stores that carnal lust and desire will absolutely have no place in God's kingdom is not for the faint hearted.

    When i was still a JW, a brother that i was good friends with, worked in a small video store ( if your under 20, you might not even know what that is). In any case, video stores had an adult section in a separate room. The elders from our congregation would often pass by the video store, and check if this brother was inside the adult section. They actually challenged him a few times about handling adult videos, stocking them, returning them, etc, which he often had to do.

    It was kind of a grey area, but despite the complaining, they never actually threatened him, or took any action.

    Thanks for sharing that experience redvip. Reminded me of this:

    *** w99 4/15 p. 29 Questions From Readers ***

    Probably an employee assigned to run the cash register or to fill the shelves only occasionally handles cigarettes or religious items; that is a small part of his overall work. What a contrast, though, with an employee in the same store who works at the tobacco counter! All his work, day in and day out, focuses on something contrary to Christian beliefs. (2 Corinthians 7:1) This illustrates why the degree of involvement or contact must be evaluated in deciding employment questions.

    I guess it's safe to assume that the same principle can be applied to video stores. Your good friend was well aware of the grey area wisdom from Jah's most important channel of spiritual food.

    Right, and i guess to use your quote from the literatrash article, if this brother was working in an adults-only video store, this would not be acceptable, but if it's a store that happens to also have questionable items, then I guess this is fine.
