This is me in my best blue harness. My wife is looking at me with admiration. Who wouldn't? As for that grinning dope on my right, I have no idea who that is.Our marriage made waves, not so much in her family - they appreciate diversity, as in mine. "You want to marry a human?" my mom gasped. "Don't come crying to me when she buys a ton of furniture and you have to carry it on your back! Tell him, Fuzzy, " she said to my dad, "tell him not to do it." but all Dad could do was spit. But with the passage of time, they have come to love her as I do. she gives me three bags of feed each day and scratches behind my ears. Our family gatherings are quite pleasant, though some of her people get uptight when my relatives dump on the floor.
Interests: current events, religion, humor, creative writing, jehovah's witnesses

First, it may be well to catch up with Part 1. Jehovah’s Witnesses did fail in this regard. Let us admit it. They failed to ‘go beyond the law.’ The stakes are so high that law is thereafter reinterpreted to... Continue reading

From a certain person who hates Jehovah's Witness, a former Witness himself: “So you've found a reporter that serves the Org well. Good for you. BUT it will never make the facts different. So where did your Ms Chuck get... Continue reading

Daily my enemy has been hammering at the door of some woman’s rights groups, hoping that they will cooperate with him in his efforts to make trouble for his former religion. This strikes me as an extraordinarily disrespectful thing to... Continue reading

Elizabeth Chuck wrote an article about Jehovah’s Witnesses and I would have preferred she write one instead about the PTA meeting in her town. It is a normal reaction, for it was news of a huge-dollar verdict against a religious... Continue reading

This seemingly is a separate subject, but rest assured, it will converge. The Watchtower recently published an article that pointed out that some women in abusive marital relationships exercise their right to separate for safety’s sake, yet others have determined... Continue reading

There was a series of tweets from former Jehovah’s Witnesses hoping to stir up discontent with present ones. The politics involved are likely not of interest to the general reader so I pass over it here. Suffice it to say... Continue reading
