    lol/"KissHisRing" - good one! Poor guy probably died hungry. I thought all that walking in service was good exerciseo. Guess there's nothing positive about that cult.

    I was only ever at one baptism talk where there were no baptized. I felt sorry for the brother giving the talk.

    Hoser, why did you feel sorry for the Brother giving the talk? Don't you think he felt it was a great privelage to be asked to do it at an assembly?

  • hoser

    You could tell he was really uncomfortable giving the talk with no one to baptize. This was when i believed more than I do now.

    I think that they should cancel the talk if no one shows to be baptized.

  • Listener

    I'm happy that they keep it in as it highlights the fact that fewer are getting baptised thes days.

    I am surprised that an Elder giving the talk would be embarrassed and if it was noticeable, I'd be more surprised if he was asked to give it again at another assembly.

    nowwhat said " ...Co wives should only speak when spoken to. A women can run for president or prime minister but in jw land are not permitted to operate a projector!"

    They should compensate their wives with a large supply of liquor. Tony Morris can explain how that works.

    Iwantoutnow I was left on my own. My PO took most of the crap, since he also approved it, and he had to read a Letter at a Meeting stating how Sorry we were for doing it.

    The PO has to go on bended knee in front of the cong for agreeing to a family group - something for families shock horror - that was actually successful.

    Disgusting. Yet no high up says sorry for allowing child abuse to flourish, or lying to members about donations.

    It's all arse-about-face!!!

    Data-Dog, "idiocracy!" I love it! So true that the best and brightest would eventually leave. (I think many of them pass through here)

    Here's another social structure that works for the JW's: mediocracy. Don't shine too brightly or you'll be called in on the carpet.
