Not true. Many soldiers have deployed and later became Witnesses. It is a "choice" to not kill others. My brother was tortured in prison because he refused to assist the apartheid government to kill people. The brothers treated badly in Korean prisons for refusal to learn war are not cowards.

And he is not stupid either.  I will not go into his academic credentials credentials before he became a witness

I do not consider myself a god, or a sheep. I consider myself a "Sheepdog", whose NATURAL instincts and "function in life" is to protect women, and children, and my family, and all innocent peopl

What do think of a country where Doctors can be forced to do abortions? I can't accuse the country, Doctors can quit or take their business elsewhere. Criminals of war were just following orders

...this even makes the sheep VERY nervous, but the reason many of them are sheep is not a desire to be peaceable with all men, as far as it depends upon them ... but because they are naturally stupid, and or cowards.

If you will refer to what I actually said, Arauna, I said "many" ..... not all.

I faced 5 years in Federal Prison during the Vietnam War, and there were as many reasons why different people became conscientious objectors, as there were who became soldiers.

Agreed, but they are not cowards to go up against a powerful machine as a government.  Many people in Germany hated the Nazis but went along with the propaganda and went to war because they were the true sheep/cowards and were afraid to face prison.

English law was introduced as a means of an argument. While (nemo iudex in causa sua) and (audi alteram partem) is being applied by secular courts, those courts will have to define the law of Natural Justice.

This provision was enacted to promote public confidence in the LEGAL SYSTEM. I don’t see where church bylaws will get such traction in the highest court of Canada that will be set to hear common law arguments.

Remember, prosecutors will need a good argument when scripture clearly states not to have anything to do with unrepentant people.

The other, how well the condition of drunkenness because of kicking out the daughter is yet to be proven by known facts. So far, that is his story. Undoubtedly mentioned for losing part of his business. He will have to show without bias he wasn’t going to do that to his daughter had it not been for whatever caused him to do so. The fact he was “disfellowshipped” is one factor. Another factor was the “daughter”, a publisher, an unbaptized publisher or just an attendee. Some should consider the case in the USA of Jack Phillips. Canada’s prevailing laws would need to change in order to favor WALL.

This is the reason “Randy Wall” lost the first case.

If I read that right, the elders expected him to kick his 15 year old daughter out of the house?

You didn’t read it right.

I would have thought he would have had legal contracts for his business which would mean that customers would be under legal contract to continue business as usual. It does show the lack of love from JW's though, if they deliberately caused problems to his business. 

Of course. When I was in business, I always made legal contracts with my customers that they remain customers no matter what. I made it illegal for them to take their business elsewhere.

Once again you make fun of my comment.

My point was that if contracts / agreements were in place that they would have to be completed until such an agreement came to it's official end. End of contract.  Would it have been right for 'brothers' to break off an agreement part way through a 'deal' using the shunning excuse as a reason ?  Would that be what God sees as just and true action ? I think not.

Well....you have to think through what you say before you say it. If you say something dumb and present it as accusatory fact, what do you expect?

The guy was a realtor. Do realtors make deals for life? Of course if he was in the midst of a contract, we could expect that contract to be respected—otherwise he could sue whoever broke it for damages.

It is his repeat business that suffered, not his individual contracts, which only last a few weeks, or at most, months.

I have used several realtors in my lifetime. Not one courtroom said I had to keep the same one forever.

There are a great many “ifs” and “seems” in your accusations. Why don’t you nail them down with more certainty before going on the offensive with them?

That is very gracious of you. 

Upon reading your words I tried to enter the kitchen to pour myself a cup of coffee, but I got my big head stuck in the door.

Moreover, (I would not expect you to know this) this is all the reasoning of the Appeals court. It was overturned in the Supreme Court (Canada). JTR is just weaving this thread around the verdict that he wishes had prevailed.

    • Throughout all of History, 70% of all war casualties have been civilian “collateral damage”.  The facts are this: Based on all the statistical analysis of real life experiences from the war between the United States of America and the Empire of Japan, the atomic bombing of Japan cost over time about 400,000 Japanese lives, and ending the Pacific War, saving 1,000,000 American lives, and 4,000,000 Japanese lives. Additionally, it so far has ushered in a period of 70 years of “long peace” free from World Wars. …. and atomic energy is being used globally in many thousands of hospitals and health care providers, since 1945 probably saving ten times more lives than all lives lost ON ALL SIDES since then. PERHAPS this is why Jehovah God NEVER stated the warfare was murder. (??).  
    • There is no real estate tax in Croatia, yet. They have been putting it off for decades. So the owner of the property does not pay any taxes to the state because of reason he own something, house or any other real estate. In the case of inheritance of real estate from parents to children, no tax is paid (spouse, descendants and ancestors who form an upright line and adopted children and adoptive parents who are in that relationship with the deceased or donor). In other cases, 3% of the market value is paid.
    • Joshua 2 ---> 1 Now after the death of Moses the servant of the Lord it came to pass, that the Lord spake unto Joshua the son of Nun, Moses' minister, saying, 2 Moses my servant is dead; now therefore arise, go over this Jordan, thou, and all this people, unto the land which I do give to them, even to the children of Israel. 3 Every place that the sole of your foot shall tread upon, that have I given unto you, as I said unto Moses. 4 From the wilderness and this Lebanon even unto the great river, the river Euphrates, all the land of the Hittites, and unto the great sea toward the going down of the sun, shall be your coast. 5 There shall not any man be able to stand before thee all the days of thy life: as I was with Moses, so I will be with thee: I will not fail thee, nor forsake thee. 6 Be strong and of a good courage: for unto this people shalt thou divide for an inheritance the land, which I sware unto their fathers to give them. 7 Only be thou strong and very courageous, that thou mayest observe to do according to all the law, which Moses my servant commanded thee: turn not from it to the right hand or to the left, that thou mayest prosper withersoever thou goest. 8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success. 9 Have not I commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. 10 Then Joshua commanded the officers of the people, saying, 11 Pass through the host, and command the people, saying, Prepare you victuals; for within three days ye shall pass over this Jordan, to go in to possess the land, which the Lord your God giveth you to possess it. 12 And to the Reubenites, and to the Gadites, and to half the tribe of Manasseh, spake Joshua, saying, 13 Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land. 14 Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them; 15 Until the Lord have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the Lord your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the Lord's servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising. 16 And they answered Joshua, saying, All that thou commandest us we will do, and whithersoever thou sendest us, we will go. 17 According as we hearkened unto Moses in all things, so will we hearken unto thee: only the Lord thy God be with thee, as he was with Moses. 18 Whosoever he be that doth rebel against thy commandment, and will not hearken unto thy words in all that thou commandest him, he shall be put to death: only be strong and of a good courage.
