Default RWatchtower (Jehovah's Witnesses) to BAN PUSSIES for Cult-members?e: H

What a lot of nonsense! The JWs are known to twist scripture.

| Can one deny that the chance exists
| that the same grave consequences could visit your home that fell upon
John?

Don't know of *any* such case.


| Clearly, God disapproved of this 'birthday' party. Should we not then
| disapprove (without showing any malicious intent, for Godly hatred of
every
| last part of the wicked system of things is a manifestation of our
| obedience to Jehovah) of cats the way the scriptures recommend?

It's the wickedness of the *human heart* the bible refers to!!

| Throughout history, particularly in the middle ages and reaching its
climax
| in the Salem Witch trials of the 1600s, cats were recognized by the forces
| of Christendom as carriers - if not direct incarnatations - of demons.
| While, in common with most beliefs of the empire of false religion, no
| evidence has ever been found to support this, the symbolism of cats still
| remain.

If it was a false religion as you say, why then should we carry on believing
this nonsense?
No! Now we know better and do not support those wrong beliefs about cats!

| The careful student of the Bible will acknowledge that nowhere within it
is
| any species ('kind') of cat referred to in favorable terms.

Dogs are not mentioned either, and canaries and guinea pigs and giraffes
and zebras, monkeys and, and ...

| While the animal itself may be unaware of
| this, it serves only its true master - Satan, the devil.

No it serves killing mice....

| The scriptures clearly indicate that neither Abraham, Isaac, Jacob,
| faithful Job, the Apostles, Jesus, Charles Russell nor any other human
| bearing God's favor himself owned a cat.

.... and therefore it was so clear that cats were about that there's no need
to mention it.

| Should we simply assume that this
| is a mere coincidence? No, surely not! This was the case because these
| individuals did not want to be like the heathen contemporaries of their
| respective days who showed no regard for how God feels about owning a cat.


No! What they did instead: they didn't *worship* the cats.


| Additionally, cats practice many unclean habits not befitting a Christian
| household: coughing up fur balls, licking inappropriate body areas
| (inappropriate handling), urination on the floor, eating dead animals
often
| with their blood, vocal promiscuity and widespread sexual misconduct
| without the benefit or sanctity of matrimony or fidelity, abuse of catnip
| (an intoxicant herb), stealing food from the table, and so on. What sort
of
| example does this give our young ones endeavoring to faithfully serve
| Jehovah?

And how about dogs?

The removal of the cat must therefore be carefully
| planned, and a Christian will know he must not give a satanic being to
| another person, on penalty of bloodguilt.

PLONK!!

Not only that, but this article is clearly a spoof.

w03 11/15 31 - Q: Are cats for Christians?
Questions from Readers
Is it appropriate for a Christian to own a cat, in light of their past
pagan religious affiliation and the medical information that is now coming
to light? -B.L., U.S.A.


Given the 'reference' in the article to the 1964 Watchtower
(look for "w64 2/15 127-8"), the date of the article is
September 15, 2003 (not September 15, 1903 -- I cannot
personally check such articles). There is a "Question from
Readers" article in the w03 11/15 issue, but it isn't
this article.

So, either PB is just having a spoof (a rare thing for him),
or he's deliberately passing on a lie, or he thinks this is
a real article but didn't check it in person, or someone is
impersonating him and thus doing a double spoof.

It is the sort of thing that some JW-critics would wish
non-JWs to believe about JWs.

-mark.

I am not a fan of Jehovah's Witnesses since they make it a point to come to
your house to quote the bible when you clearly did not ask them to. Here are
a some excuses or questions one can use to get rid of them.

1. It is time for my cat worshipping meeting.

2. I am getting ready to go out to and witness the sacrifice of a goat so I
can't talk right now.

3. This household is ruled by three cats and I must bow to them.

4. I am meeting with my other religious brothers so I don't have time right
now. It is also my turn to bring the goat's blood.

5. Thanks for coming but Jehovah owes me money from a previous gambling
debt. Are you here to pay up?

6. The dark lord says I'll have a hard time in hell if I keep him waiting.

7. I am hosting my first orgy. Do you have any grapes?

8. Got any virgins in your group?

9. You interrupted my porno viewing and thanks to you JW's I am now sexually
frustrated.

10. Didn't you see the pentagram hanging in my window?

Why don't you try "no thanks but thank you for stopping by" and then
shut the door? Works fine.

I am curious about all your goats blood, hell, pentagram "jokes". I
hope it is not your opinion that anyone who wears a pentagram (or
pentacle) is some how involved in those silly tv depictions of pagans
or witches. If not, than your merely perpetuating a myth..if so...get
informed.

I *think* that those were jokes meant to mock the ignorance Cat Protector
believes the Jehovah's Witnesses exhibit. I don't think that Cat Protector
really believes those things -- CP just thinks that Jehovah's Witnesses
believe those things, and CP is making fun of the Jehovah's Witnesses. I
don't like the JW for their frightening "rules" concerning sexual abuse and
the reporting of the same. Scary.

That's fine...but joking about the stereo-type does more to promote the
same. You have no idea (or maybe you do) the amount of muck one
has to go through if their religion isn't mainline. I do wear a pentagram
and am constantly having to explain it has nothing to do with devil worship
or any other nonsense that tv (and these jokes) feed the public. It's means
earth, fire, water, air and spirit. It is the star of life...yeah...real
scary business
that.
As for the JW, when they come to my door the most they are trying to do is
to "save" me. Obviously I don't need them and don't want to be "saved" by
them
but caring enough about a total stranger...wanting them to follow the one
true
path (by your own standards) is nothing more than misguided. It's not
horrible.
I can't and won't believe as they do but they don't pelt my door with rocks
when
I shut it and they don't yell slurs at me. ..not like we do them. (by we I
mean us
non JW). Like I said...a polite no thank you is all that's required...and I
beg you
don't tarnish the reputation of non mainline spiritualist by waving your
pentagram
and hollering about goat sacrifices. It does way more harm than good.

Just point out to anyone who asks that the pentacle star around your neck is
the exact same pentacle star that is on the American flag.

Well, I did something quite dreadful to some JW once. I didn't mean to. It
was an accident. A friend was supposed to meet me at my house. My house
was set back from the road a bit, and sheltered with a shady front porch. I
was running late, and was just getting in the shower when I heard the knock
at the front door. I knew it was my friend, so I leaped out of the shower,
ran dripping stark naked to the door, flung it open to let my friend in, and
saw -- two Jehovah's Witnesses! I nearly died on the spot. I slammed the
door in their faces, grabbed my bathrobe (which was hanging on the front
door hook -- why I don't know) and opened the door again to apologize. They
were completely unaffected! They smiled, and told me they were there to
discuss the bible, etc. They acted as if nothing had happened. I told them
I couldn't -- was expecting a friend -- had to take a shower -- I eventually
got rid of them, but I don't think I have ever completely gotten over the
embarrassment of that moment!

I think you worry far too much about this subject. Nobody mentioned anything
about the pentagram being specifically for devil worship although it has
been used as a symbol for it as well as paganism. It is a tool and it can be
used for bad or good. You need to have a sense of humor here though.
