Well how about THIS?

Since the sign says MK Dons it must be the Milton Keynes Bowl in the English Midlands. I hope this is during the peak attendance of the public talk...
But yes the WT derides the Catholic Church but secretly admires its confident authority. It thinks: if only the brothers and sisters would slavishly follow and contribute like the Catholics do.
As for public exposure I think they should copy the papacy and parade around the assembly sites, all seven of them waving to the crowd in a pink Mr Whippy ice-cream van. The Pope after all manages to look like he is frozen in a block of ice.
I think the WT has a love-hate relationship with the Catholic Church.
They secretly love the CC because they envy how much money, power and members the CC has.
Yes LoveUni, envy is the right word since the Catholic Church even by its very name is the archetypal establishment religion.
The Watchtower in contrast is crippled in its worldly ambitions since it can only remain a doomsday cult falsely promising the end of Catholicism and all those who do not believe in the paranoid JW doctrine.
Where is the last picture from?
i followed this back to jaw Archive and found an explanation that the hidden stage was to protect the speakers (visiting GB members?) from crazed apostates and snipers.
Russell backed off for the most part attacking other religions; but Rutherford made it his life's goal; a Catholic judge had put the WT board of directors in prison supposedly with RC backing. The Catholic church brought an end to the WT radio campaign as well. Though the WTS for a long time identified Babylon the Great as the papacy.
How can you NOT compare the Catholic Church to the Watchtower? Look at their fruits.
The Catholic Church gave the world universities, hospitals, old age homes, orphanages, food banks, etc and is the largest charity in the world.
The Watchtower gives spiritual food at the proper time and is restoring God's real name and now is the largest publisher in the world.
They're like twinsif
The JWs are Catholic "apostates".
In the Catholic faith, an adherent that is excommunicated is prohibited from taking communion. The JWs are "volunteer" excommunicated Catholics and they display that by refusing to take communion - they pass the wine and bread right on by.
I remind that you posted the comparison in my thread about RC 3 months ago. Prologos than asked 2 questions

OrphanCrow: are all Catholics served the wine?, or, just like the JWs, denied it, but allowed to watch the special class member ( priest) drink?
