    Hi

    Is there a way of showing a JW that the Society deals in stocks and shares and therefore it is ok for individual JW's to do likewise?

    Thanks

    Not only owns shares, but owns stock in weaponry, apparently.

    I'm sure many more will come through with other examples for you.

    (Credit goes to Metatron. This was posted years ago). Home Solutions of America is an organization who owns sub-companies who work directly for the Military. This company is partnered with the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania, Inc. in a stock purchase agreement. How many times do you see the word "stock" below? **************************************************************

    Home Solutions of America Unit Gets $1.3 Million Air Force Contract to Remove Mold From Homes

    DALLAS (AP) -- Home Solutions of America Inc., a provider of specialty residential services, said Monday that its PW Stephens unit received a contract worth more than $1.3 million to remove mold from over 240 homes at Camp Pendleton Air Force base in Southern California.

    "The combination of continued backlog in California coupled with our recent contracts resulting from damage due to the hurricanes in Florida bode well for the 2005 fiscal year," said PWS president Scott Johnson.

    Shares of Home Solutions were up 2 percent, or 3 cents, at $1.50 in afternoon trading on the American Stock Exchange.

    Watchtower’s Investments
    in Warfare Technology

    "The first casualty of war is The Truth."

    Purpose

    The purpose of this review article is to determine whether the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, Inc. (WT) owns shares of common stocks of armament-related industry and if positive, determine if they perform business transactions with the U.S. Department of Defense.

    Background

    The Watchtower Bible and Tract Society Inc. (WT) portrays itself as a pacifist, neutral, non-profit religious organization and a "direct channel to God". As a sign of respect to God, Watchtower’s members – the Jehovah’s Witnesses – must not accept blood transfusions, take part in any political, governmental or military organization and can not perform business transactions with such institutions. Under some prophetic speculation, the WT teaches its members that the United Nations is the embodiment of "The Beast" spoken of in the Bible's book of Revelation and that Earth is "Satan’s kingdom". The WT claims that the only safe group to be, grow and reach salvation is the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of New York, Inc. The WT demands from its members high moral, social and "Christian" standards while condemning immorality and materialism.

    Once the new recruits accept the idea that the Watchtower is a "direct channel" of communication to God, they are told to accept every word coming from the headquarters located in Brooklin, NY. Questioning the doctrine or breaking any of its rules is equated to doubting the word of God himself and it is often severely punished by disfellowshiping (expulsion), which means this person must be shunned and ostracized by his/her own relatives and friends. Preventing independent thinking trough fear and guilt is a very effective thought-stoping process which allows the indoctrination process to implant more phobias and further the individual's need to belong and seek "shelter" under the mother organization, the Watchtower.

    I think it’s safe to assume they don’t hide their money in a hole somewhere. The people in finance would always like to quote Luke 19:11-27. People just assume they don’t own stock. Trying to connect WT to the military through a contract with HSOA is weak. HSOA provides restoration services to homes damaged by floods, hurricanes, etc.

    What would get my attention is if there is evidence the WT used Katrina donations to purchase goods and services through HSOA vs. getting the best price. Then you would really have something.
