  1. Ok, well, that article is not what I linked to. You see, as with any good new media websites, they have articles on many subjects from from all different angles. The links are often automatic depending on the article subjects. Anyway, in this thread I was writing about their report on the court case that was initiated today.
  2. I really don’t know if the journalist who wrote this article, Jesper Lindqvist, is gay or not, or if he’s an ex-Witness. (What gave you that idea?) As for articles you come to by clicking on any other links, I don’t know about those either, The ‘Metro’ is a respected newspaper.
  3. Another article (in Swedish). https://www.svt.se/nyheter/inrikes/jehovas-vittnens-filmvisning-i-ratten-inte-lampligt-for-barn According to Jehovah's Witnesses, the films are part of their religious teaching and therefore need not be reviewed by the State Media Council. "In a democratic society, freedom of expression and freedom of religion are necessary and a sufficient basis for showing the films," defense lawyer Majeed Alnashi said during the trial. The accused 64-year-old [who has responsible for the convention in question] told in questioning that films are shown in connection with all religious services. "If we are not allowed to show these films without scrutiny, it will affect all Jehovah's Witnesses meetings in 320 congregations across the country," 64-year-old told the court. The verdict is expected on April 3. The Tingsrätten (district court, crown court) is first instance.
  4. This Monday a court case was initiated regarding the public showing of our convention videos. The prosecution claims that during “a public gathering / public event, films that have not been approved by the State Media Council, have been shown for children who have been under 15 years of age". The films being considered are said to have an anti-htbq theme, as well as dramatic Armageddon themes. https://www.metro.se/artikel/rättegång-mot-jehovas-vittnen-efter-metros-avslöjande
  5. ...Apple has announced Apple TV+, a streaming service that will be available in over 100 countries this fall. Apple is one of the richest companies in the world. Here’s something Tim Cook, CEO, doesn’t know: Our God Jehovah provides us with a free streaming service in over 280 languages with high quality programming and very little economic backing. It not only entertains us. It also gives us life. https://www.apple.com/apple-tv-plus/ https://tv.jw.org
  6. Oh, there are so many... “Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me? Somewhere beyond the barricade Is there a world you long to see? Do you hear the people sing? Say, do you hear the distant drums? It is the future that they bring When tomorrow comes!”
  7. Let Hans Zimmer suck you in with his masterpiece “Supermarine”.
  8. I understand what you mean. To me, the videos are there as well. You might want to report your bug.
  9. Which begs the question “why”? American Museum of Natural History answers: “Some sharks must swim constantly in order to keep oxygen-rich water flowing over their gills, but others are able to pass water through their respiratory system by a pumping motion of their pharynx. This allows them to rest on the sea floor and still breathe. However, sharks do have to swim to avoid sinking to the bottom of the water column. The ability to move up and down freely in the water column is, in fact, one of the extraordinary adaptations of sharks.” Sharks and Rays: Myth and Reality
  10. Sometimes when you translate a word or expression directly, it can become muddled in the goal language. For this reason, the translators have been taught to translate thoughts and ideas so that the same idea can be conveyed in the goal language. The result is a translation that is easier to take to your heart - one where the word of God becomes clearer to the reader.
  11. The songs are still the video files with the words. Am I missing something?
  12. Yes, well, we cannot solve the puzzle entirely. But everyone of us can do something little instead of completely resigning to the idea that nothing we do matters. Doing your best really is good enough. But do something. That’s not impossible.
  13. And here is the photo evidence from New Scientist... https://www.newscientist.com/article/2197328-stunning-picture-shows-dead-star-racing-away-from-a-massive-explosion/ He knew it before we ever did...
