If you read my previous blog post about the material that Jehovah’s Witness children are encouraged to “connect the dots” and color, you may be tempted to think that this incident was one isolated act of indiscretion. Think again. More information has been uncovered and it is worse than previously thought. Another graphic-graphic has been found on JW.org, the official website of Jehovah’s Witnesses.
This connect the dots coloring page depicts the Biblical story of how King Solomon settled a dispute between two women in 1st Kings 3:16-27. Both were claiming to be the mother of an infant child so Solomon commanded that the child be divided in two with a sword. One half of the child be given to each woman. Naturally the real mother of the child objected so Solomon was able to identify her.
We could try to imagine the horror on the face of the mother, but now we don’t have to. Thanks to the Watchtower, that has been provided for us. And not just us. The Watchtower has created a wonderful connect the dots coloring page so that our children can join in the fun too. Now the whole family can view together the expression on the face of the mother as a soldier holds her child in one hand and a sword on the other.
If the Watchtower really is God’s organization, then why are they so indifferent to the fact that images like this often scare little kids? Something is wrong. Something is terribly wrong. Nothing better illustrates hits than a contrast between the pictures that Christian children are encouraged to color and the pictures that Jehovah’s Witness children have provided for them. The last 10 or so seconds of this short video wraps it up nicely.
