    Yeah, George, I was wondering if it was interesting enough to be watchable with a family without it qualifying as a punishment for anyone. I guess that's a matter of opinion.

    Was VPW a holocaust denier?

    vpw went through a LOT of alcohol in the average week, so I would be more surprised if he was SOBER at the time. (BTW, I ran into technical problems when I was posting links last night, so I included a link back to this thread accidentally while working around the problems. I hope nobody cares.)

    His other senses worked fine. Since the question was raised, I'd think his insignia would have a slight raising over the shirt. We have designs that are similar. The ring knows what suit to give him, so it defaults to a GL uniform, with the special instruction for him and his people to make it a bell insignia. (Interesting line of thought, I think.)

    Movie Mash-Up

    Ok, here's what I have in mind. Clues are posted for a movie. They can be quotes, lists of some of the actors in it, trivia about it, goofs from filming, and so on- just so long as they're things people might remember about the movie one way or another. Try not to pick movies that are very obscure, and try not to pick clues that are too obscure. I'll start off. ============================== One Hollywood tough guy has gone on record about his role in this film (films). He said that now he actually has gotten fans that are small children. They've come up to him and wanted him to come to their houses and act out his movie role there.

    Anytime you have to hike 2 miles to a rest stop, then phone someone to get a ride because you were kicked off a vehicle on the highway, well, it makes an impression on you. I'm sure the memories of that day are PARTICULARLY vivid.

    When I hear that song, I picture Batman running around the dock with the cartoon bomb thing. The show is family-friendly. Is it worth watching?

    Name that Tune

    I thought it was a Jimi Hendrix- specific song. I also didn't know the later parts of the song, just the first verse and the tune. Of course, the correct artist was Jimi OR anyone who actually played the thing, including Billy Roberts since he was a singer and not just a writer (apparently.) The usual standard is for some kind of broadcast SOMEWHERE, but that's for the SONG, not the artist, really, and this song got/gets plenty of airplay. So, Human's turn.

    Was VPW a holocaust denier?

    If you look over some old threads, we discussed the Holocaust. A few posters consistently insisted the numbers of dead were GREATLY exaggerated (as in, hundreds died or something rather than millions), and the evidence was FAKED. Is it any coincidence that ALL the posters who pulled that were ALL posters who were big boosters of vpw, who always tried to whitewash his image clean of his rapes, druggings, molestations, plagiarism, vices, and so on? vpw was very pro-German, and claimed his German heritage meant his family was very industrious and hard-working. (BTW, vpw was a lazy boy on the farm who ran off into the forest and disappeared for hours rather than do his chores.) He also insinuated he got revelation all the time, and some of what he said when he did came straight from the John Birch Society, which is a conspiracy shop and so on. Those who knew him PERSONALLY could say more, and I'm sure they will. :)

    Was VPW a holocaust denier?

    That book was recommended and CARRIED IN THE TWI BOOKSTORE. The claim was that modern Jews were descendants of the Khazars, not the historical Jews. Genetic testing proved the premise was incorrect, because the modern Jews carry genetic markers of historical Jews and lack genetic markers of the Khazars. So, wrong TWICE. Also, can't call them "Jews" in twi, have to call them "Judeans." Not sure why.

    Recently left after 8 years

    ""Leadership" treated me badly. " - about 1/2 the people who left, if not more. Welcome. Over the decades, the GSC has been host to lots of twi survivors, some of whom post to this day. There's all kinds of personal stories, but common themes creep up- like abuse by so-called leadership. "It’s an organization run by pompous, arrogant, narcissistic, power freaks who, in their eyes, can do no wrong. 2 Peter 2 describes them well. "- It's obvious in hindsight, but twi was designed that way. vpw wanted all the money and control for himself, so he made his own group, and plagiarized the heck out of other Christians and claimed he got almost all of it by special revelation so twi was special, and he was special- est of the special. He treated people as disposable resources, and had no problem cultivating a public image of a nice guy while being a sociopath behind the scenes. vpw cultivated all those petty traits in himself and others. He also had no real leadership training. He had no training in leadership, and he didn't seek any when starting his "Way Corps" program. So, he never weeded out any pettiness. He didn't do quality control, either- if you could raise the money, you could go through the program. So, twi's leadership roles had a lot of those, who filled it up. When corruption came out, all the REAL leaders walked off when nothing could be done to fix twi- which left the corrupt "leaders."

    Amazing you stayed that long, even WITH a spouse. Sometimes twi leaned on a spouse to divorce a spouse who was having doubts.

    *slaps forehead* "La Familia Ingalls", as the show is known here (it's in syndication on a local channel, IIRC.) As it was named originally, "Little House on the Prairie."

    Movie Mash-Up

    Yes. I wasn't sure you were that big a trivia fan. One of the "Green Lanterns" wore a bell insignia. His people have no concept of LIGHT, let alone color, so they don't have a concept analogous to a "lantern" "light" or "green." So, their Green Lantern is "The F-Sharp Bell". Alan Scott was in one script. The adlibbed line was about how he hid his cheekbones with the mask and expected her not to recognize him. (I once wore a Halloween costume that covered me completely, and fooled several people into thinking I was someone else. One other person looked me over for a moment, then greeted me by name. "How did you know it was me????" "From how you stand." So, yeah, a domino mask may not cut it.

    Cult-Splinter Insanity

    Yes, in this case, it's people who KNOW what a cult looks like. If they join up now, it's because they decided they can't cut it in the real world, and NEED a cult to tell them what to think, what to do, and to take their money and time, most importantly. Rico's counting on this- which says a lot about Rico. If Rico's right about their BEING a God, Rico will need to answer for this to Him at some point.

    Idiom of Permission

    "Why would satan destroy all the wickedness that he was promoting?" I've found that some people do things even if we think they're senseless. "Since I can't come up with a reason for vpw to drug, rape and molest women, then he must not have." WHY something is done is not relevant to IF it is done. And we don't need to know someone's motive to WHY they do something to know THAT they did something. Healthy people don't think like psychopaths. So, a reason for satan to destroy stuff? Well, there's reasons satan may WANT to. We know he was petty and vindictive, and wanted control over God's creation. So, one reason already given was to wipe out the line of the promised seed by wiping out EVERYONE. If you want to take out a target and don't care about collateral damage, you can obliterate the building they're in, and know they got killed in the process. That's one thing a psychopath might consider or do. Also, out of pettiness, he just might want to flaunt his control by showing that he controlled things to the point he could destroy them if he wanted- proving he could by doing it. According to some stories, the leader of the "assassins" did just such a thing once. When receiving a VIP, the VIP/diplomat asked- for his monarch- why they should go along with the assassins. Their leader turned to a follower next to him, and told him to kill himself. Immediately, he did so, and fell dead at their feet. Then the leader signaled to a lookout to jump from his vantage point and kill himself in a fall. Immediately, he did so. The leader then told about how many thousands of followers he claimed he had, all just as loyal. He made his point with the diplomat, who recommended the assassins be given a lot of leeway. A third, possible reason would be out of spite. Someone I want to anger likes something? I'll break it to make them unhappy. So, destroy the people and/or the Earth because it would make God unhappy. There's other POSSIBLE reasons. But, again, we don't need to KNOW someone's motive to know they did it. It helps us understand if we do, it helps with a trial of the perpetrator, but it's not required to know WHY the truth is the truth. So, "why" is not the most important question here.

    When is it rude?

    "What part of worship/serve do you not understand?" The part where you conflate the two, as if they mean the same thing or almost the same thing. Are you trying to communicate your ideas, or just vague concepts for others to interpret like an inkblot? If you're trying to communicate ideas, it's either one, the other, or that both are the same idea. You got across that you're saying they're the same idea, which allows you to pretend to say one and mean the other, while people take you to mean the one you don't, in order to say both. Even lawyers think that's underhanded. geer pulled the same thing when he said that it was all the same if he said that God "foreknew" or "foreordained." I can foreknow a hurricane is coming without foreordaining that it come! He continued with "foreknew, or forced or tracked OR WHATEVER YOU'D LIKE TO PUT AS THE WORD THERE." Swapping words as if you can shuffle their meanings doesn't go over well because we know that's not how language works, and trying to do so says more about the speaker than anything he was trying not to say outright. We understood you wanted to say that all people "worship" something, and atheists "worship" themselves, and then you used a verbal sleight-of-hand to try to insinuate it without saying it outright- but the meaning came through nice and clear despite that. " prefer to choose to read/hear only the words that you want to read or hear, and then proceed to speak/write/rant in much the same judgmental and condescending manner that twi and the wc was/is so notoriously adept at, while totally ignoring or purposefully obscuring the actual heart and intent of what was originally said. " Not at all. You said something and got caught at it. If someone says something, and others disagree, they get called on it. That's part of discussion. Disliking it and just slamming it was common in twi- which is what you're pulling now. Outside of twi, it's common to speak clearly, and explain when you're misunderstood. "seems it;s not just the younger generation that are "snowflakes." Yeah, taking responsibility for one's words or actions, fessing up, trying harder next time, those are un-twi behavior. Sometimes they can be found here. Sometimes they're not found here. And some posters find they just can't ever admit a mistake- it always HAS to be the other person, since they MEANT well. So, trot out the insults, then storm off in a huff, claim a moral victory, and go off and polish one's medals. We've seen that plenty of times. Usually, it was vpw apologists who did it, but anyone can pull that stunt.

    Name that Tune

    Ok, this song's been done by a number of artists, and different writers claim the credit. I thought it was only done by 1 artist until a minute ago. "C'mon tell me where you gonna run to? Don't you worry about me. I'm going way down South, Way down South where I'm gonna be free. I'm going way down South, Way down South maybe outside Mexico Way. I'm gonna run, oh yeah."

    Movie Mash-Up

    Michael Clarke Duncan Temuera Morrison Geoffrey Rush Tim Robbins Angela Bassett -The main actor for the movie (arguably the title role) clashed with the director, and was glad the movie performed poorly. -Those looking for it in the movie can spot a bell, and tell you what note that bell sounds when rung. (Trivia fans.) -The director wanted Bradley Cooper for the main actor, but he wasn't available. - The main actress' line about cheekbones was an ad-lib. An early version of the script included Pierce Brosnan making a brief appearance as Alan.
