Meditator and I ran into an Elder from our old congregation this morning at Costco. Of course he is growing a beard. I thought it funny that Meditator said to him that it was great he was growing a beard now that he has “permission“ to do so. And the Brother smiled broadly like he enjoyed getting “permission” from the dictator’s of Sodom, I mean the Governing Body. He really didn’t realize the irony of it. Meditator then said that we were going to Memorial to see how many brothers have beards. His reply is that they all have beards now.
2024 watchtower slogan: Monkey see, monkey do! Is meditator going to attend the memorial “full Levite“ or just a smatter of “rebellious stubble” or go “Holier than thou” “Clean shaven“ just in case Jehovah “has got it wrong again“ with another non-disclosure of “Winderism”? I take it that you Susan will be sporting your best stick-on Father Christmas Floor Length white beard? Photos please!! ( Love the “Dictators of Sodom”. Another diary entry!! )

Kim Mikey made a video today about this and said that WT is going to spin it as "they governments are persecuting us" and she made a good point that WT can still worship freely, they just aren't going to get free government money anymore so it's important to keep that in mind.

The lawyer for WT cost about a 1/2 a million alone, so now they have to pay the opposing counsel's court fees as well. They brough this on themselves for being so bold to ask for it.
I thought watchtower had their own lawyers so they did not have to pay them?

imagine if they had gone out and stated - we jw are not interested in money only to be recognized as a legal faith and religious society to be able to practice our worship as Jehovah wants us to do - imagine what a good testimony that would have been to stand out from the rest of the moneygrubbing pseudochristianity.. oh well

its been a rough period.. feel like a flower trying to get back up after the storm🤗 but im still here
just not felt like commenting for a while
Try not to be like that. I know that at times I feel the same way, but we just have to make ourselves because we need to encourage one another on here. The time is getting near now where we need to draw closer to one another. I can relate to how you feel though, believe me.

They use both now. Evidently, some of the cases are so heinous that real JW's couldn't do it.

Some are speculating that the new upscale Fishkill complex will be for the non-JW attorneys to stay at with their 15,000 square foot recreational facility.

Now Ramapo will have electric car recharging station for 30% of their parking spots.

The counties where these are being bought (like the new GEICO building) are losing tax revenues which will lower the standard of living in those communities.

One has to ask what all these buildings are going to be used for?

Isn't it funny how they only report the favorable "stuff". Stands in contrast to the Bible writers who were candid about their shortcomings.

BTW, we're glad you're here and decided to speak out. Enjoyed your introductory comments and, like many on the forum, we have had similar experiences. For us, the vax was the final straw but the cracks started appearing long before. It's just not the same organization as it was in the 70's and 80's. Look forward to hearing more

Most of the brother and sisters couldnt even afford the batteries to go in an electric car. Its so nice to see how the other side lives on the backs of the poor brothers and sisters.

I just ordered a British Parliamentary wig from A-zon. Hoping it arrives on time! Otherwise I am going full out Holier Than Thou as per my usual M.O. Not the clean shaven Holier Than Thou but the attitudinal Holier Than Thou. Hopefully I don't stand up at the end of the ceremony during the part when they praise the Org and ask for bible studies and I scream out "BLASPHEMY"! I will begin my prayers for restraint tomorrow. Heck, it is only 20 days away now that they have upped the schedule to coincide with another Jewish festival rather than the one on Nisan 14. Ya know, the Passover, that one, LOL. Boy, writing this post was fun!!

Amazing! It never occurred to me that you could get one of these from Amazon! I wonder if that is where politicians come from too. You could buy a Trump for $20 ?? What with all these new privileges in the congregation of beard growing and wig wearing it makes me wonder what will come next. I didn’t know they do advertising now for bible studies at the end of the meeting. Times they are a changing!

Amazon tiene variedad, pero para conseguir la de Trump es mejor buscar en cualquier granja de pollos dorados, el color estará mucho más conseguido. 🤣🤣🤣 Que carta de color será esa? Sólo me pregunto.🤔

Has anyone seen the latest update on Norway? :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO: (Spoiler Alert ..... wait for the end of video)

When WT was winning court cases, it was proof of Jehovah's blessing on the work.
So, now that they're losing court cases, what does that indicate?:unsure:


Ezekiel 23:28-30: “For this is what the Sovereign Lord Jehovah says: ‘Here I am about to hand you over to those you hate, those you turned away from in disgust. They will deal with you in hatred and take away all you have toiled for and leave you naked and exposed. The shameful nakedness of your immorality and your obscene conduct and your prostitution will be exposed. These things will be done to you because you chased after the nations like a prostitute, because you defiled yourself with their disgusting idols.”
