Jehovah's Witnesses - how did they get so much money?

Is there a god? What is the meaning of life?

That's why cathilics call their donations the "dime" (1/10th)

They even have a day of the week for it: "Dimanche" = the day of the dime (Sunday) but they make it sound better by officially calling it the "day of the lord".

I know some people who hate Jehova witness cause they are like door to door salesmen. But you have to respect their industriousness they do know how to run a good business. As all things are a business in a way and you have to respect them for their devotion to their faith. They sure do like throwing pitches around. :)

I don't respect them because of the way they 'follow' orders instead
of thinking for themselves. And I know what it's like because I did
it in a different church for three years. Now I always think before doing something
that God supposedly said to do - like looking both ways before crossing the street.

Always think.

Yeah some people are more followers than leaders others are more leaders than followers. Just a part of life I guess.

I did it for 14 and, while that does describe a good number of them, many actually believe in what they're doing. Many have put thought into it and come to a different conclusion than you. Many are genuine, not "just following orders".
