There is a VERY simple way to find out the REAL answers to all your suppositions and questions, TTH ..... and that is you personally actually DO write the Collective Governing Body of Jehovah's Witnesses, as I have outlined ... and in about three months solid, hard facts will be available for you to make a rational argument for defending the indefensible, with cutesey, meaningless dialog.
Be a sport ... get the forms from the Post Office for certified mail, and return receipt (the cardboard green card), write a check, compose your letter, copy this thread in its entirety, and fire that torpedo into the dark, and see what lights up!
Then you will have a FACTUAL basis for what is the actual reality of the situation.
.... and as a side thought ... your cutesy suppositions are not THAT cute.
Are you any relation to the James Rookus of history who wrote to the older men in late first-century Jerusalem demanding, as they were MEN of HONOR, that they answer:
1 WHY they did not address the INJUSTICES highlighted by the WHISTLEBLOWERS that Jude wrote about?
2 HOW did they account for their NEGLIGENT track record so that John could “rejoice” that SOME of the children are walking in the truth. Why did they not shepherd better so that ALL of them would do so?
3. WHY did The PROMOTE the guy who KNUCKLED UNDER when Jews showed up and disapproved of him hanging out with Gentile Christians and who had a TRACK RECORD of knuckling under—even THREE TIMES on a certain evening?
And that’s just for starters.
Nah. If it is not the answer their enemies expect, they will just assume that they are lying.
“Our study was a proof of concept in the laboratory,” Callaghan told USA TODAY. “One of the next steps will be to sample lakes with plastics and mosquitoes to measure this.”
I wonder if I could get a multi-million dollar Grant to study if mosquitoes drink six cups of coffee a day, they will be unable to blink?
Plantations are representative of the Confederate States of America, which kept men and women and children in bondage as human chattel from 1861 to 1865 in the Confederate States Of America, and although the people that owned the Plantations had to live SOMEWHERE, living in an attractive, large house, more than a hundred and fifty years later, evokes strong emotions in the minds of deranged Snowflakes, and those living in their mothers' basements as adults ... and we should have consideration for their feelings.
It really grinds my gears to THINK of the Nazi's "Peoples' Car" and the insensitive dollards that drive Volkswagens today, insulting us at every corner, and those Imperialists that drive Mitsubishi Automobiles today, completely oblivious that Mitsubishi made the Japanese ZERO aircraft that helped in the destruction of Pear Harbor, on December 7, 1941, and sucking America into World War II.
WHAT'S THE MATTER WITH THESE PEOPLE!?
