    Thx Londo! That Jonestown quote is eerily reminiscent of JWtown, right?!

    If things could be reduced to an equation: Watchtower > Jonestown

    In comparison, Jonestown was a picnic, but unfortunately Watchtower is not in the public awareness despite all its efforts to advertize, advertize, advertize.

    Want to know if you are in a cult? Try to leave it and see what happens.
    That tells you everything you need to know.

    Some think of a cult as being a new or unorthodox religion. Jehovah’s Witnesses have not invented a new religion. On the contrary, we pattern our worship after that of the first-century Christians, whose example and teachings were recorded in the Bible. YADDA YADDA!!

    I love how any cult group tries to find the common misconceptions about cults and say "That doesn't apply to us." Sorry, I already learned that a cult doesn't need to hit all the markers of a cult, and being "new" really isn't one of them anyway.

    Some think of a cult as being a dangerous religious sect with a human leader. Jehovah’s Witnesses do not look to any human as their leader. Rather, we adhere to the standard that Jesus set for his followers when he stated: “Your Leader is one, the Christ.”—Matthew 23:10.

    Bullshit. They obey these guys, but claim they are not the leaders, just those taking the lead. They claim they are not inspired, but just spirit-directed. They cannot walk the line like that. Total bullshit.

    I think the CLAM meeting tonight puts the icing on the cake as to JW being a CULT!

    "At that time, the life-saving direction that we receive from Jehovah’s organization may not appear practical from a human standpoint. All of us must be ready to obey any instructions we may receive, whether these appear sound from a strategic or human standpoint or not. (4) Now is the time for any who may be putting their trust in secular education, material things, or human institutions to adjust their thinking."

    If would be interesting to create a page where the people deny being a cult and claim being directed by God....Called "name the cult"
