I think this is such a cute commercial! (link below) However, if Venus and Serena's mother is a
loyal Witness, I am surprised that she would consent to do a Mother's Day
commercial. We all know what they teach
about celebrating this and so many other holidays. From the Reasoning from the Scriptures book:
"What is the origin of the practice of setting aside a day to honor mothers?
The Encyclopædia Britannica says: “A festival derived from the custom of mother worship in ancient Greece. Formal mother worship, with ceremonies to Cybele, or Rhea, the Great Mother of the Gods, were performed on the Ides of March throughout Asia Minor.”—(1959), Vol. 15, p. 849.
I wonder if she would have been counseled about this. Or maybe it explains, to a degree, why Venus and Serena haven’t always adhered strictly to Watchtower precepts.
Has anyone heard anything?
