Question: Ex-Jehovah's witnesses normally only answer questions about Jehovah's witnesses. And ask a lot of questions about them. And most are private users and or stay Anonymous? I mean they call them a cult and evil and worshipers of Satan. Would they not want to stay away from them? It's like they don't want to leave.

I am a former Jehovah's Witness and although I answer a lot of questions about this denomination, I seldom ask questions about them. Also, my Yahoo account is open for inspection. No need to hide behind anonymity. Yes, from my experience being brought up in this organisation, I accuse the leaders of cultish behaviour in the way they manipulate the membership and punish people who don't obey them. I invite you to read the article in the link below about how some denominations manipulate and abuse their members. However, I have never, ever said they worship Satan. Jehovah's Witnesses are decent, caring and sincere people. I have no argument against individual Witnesses. As for why I answer questions like this about them, it is to make Witnesses stop and think for themselves. It is to challenge them to do some independent research, to look into the history of this organisation and to start to ask questions. Almost 19 years ago, I became a Christian and just as Jehovah's Witnesses are obsessed with exposing "false religion" you could say that I am also obsessed with exposing the scholastic dishonesty of the men who lead you and who demand your unquestioning obedience and loyalty. Belonging to an organisation will not save anybody. Only belonging to Christ Jesus can save you.

Tanner Originally Answered: How to get noticed by a director?
Professional acting is not about getting "noticed" - it's business. Directors don't "discover" actors. That's a lot of Public Relations and not the reality of professional work. Attempting a professional career is more like starting a company and you are the product you have to market and sell. So you need a good product (talent, training and experience), but you also have to understand the business end of things. Which is why, if you're a minor your parents HAVE to be involved. How movie casting usually works (even the"small" parts) is that they hire a casting director who writes a "breakdown" (a description of the project and the roles they want to cast). The breakdown is released through an online comunication network to licensed talent agents and managers only - not to actors or the general public. Then the talent agent reviews breakdowns and submits their clients to the appropriate roles. (To submit means they send in their clients professional head shot, acting resume, and acting reel of their previous film work.) So you pretty much need a talent agent to work professionally. And you can't just hire a talent agent. Agents are paid on commission, getting a percentage of what their clients make. Since they are paid only if their clients are paid, they are picky about who they take on as clients. And they can be picky because there are a lot more people wanting to be actors than there are roles. So to get an agent, you have to convince one that you're "marketable" and that you have the talent, training and commitment to book professional jobs. So that requires networking in the industry and many other things - that (again) if you're a minor your parents would have to do for you. Plus as a minor there are legal restrictions for you to work in the industry. Based on where you live and where you want to work, you may need an entertaiment work permit or a trust account established in your name. But it is great that you and yoru friend enjoy acting and singing and had fun making your movie. You can keep doing that! Take all the opportunities you can to practice the craft. Some options you have: * Taking acting classes. Voice and dance lessons can be helpful too. You'll want a school/program that has a strong reputation with well-respected instructors. * Audition for what you can - school plays, community theater, student films, local productions. Performing with a choir or a dance troupe or other performance group is also helpful. Contact local film schools and ask how they find actors for student films and check those resources. Check out the websites for your local film commission and see what opportunities are there. * Read plays and scripts - all kinds - and keep an eye out for characters and monologues you love and want to develop. * Read books and websites about acting - the craft/technique and the business end of things too. * Join Speech/Drama club and look into competing in the acting divisions of forensic competitions. * Get together with friends and play improv games, make your own home movies or web series, put on your own productions. * Keep up your grades in school. Embrace learning, you never know when you can somehow use that information later. While you do that, your parents can research the business end of things to see if it really makes sens for you to attempt a professional career at this point. Remember you don't need a professional career as a minor to have one as an adult. Some websites with more information about professional acting as child: Both you and your Mom can learn more about the business end of things from websites like these: http://www.bizparentz.org/ http://www.backstage.com/topics/kids/ http://youngperformers.sagaftra.org/file...

I'm an independent Christian baptised as a Jehovah's wittiness. If you ask any question about god jesus or the bible . I'm going to give you a real bible answer. Jehovah's wittiness have their problems as do all religions. I do not hide my name. I don't spend my time bashing on Jehovah's wittiness or any others Atheists gays budist Muslim. We are all created by the same god no matter what you call him or believe. I'm no longer interested about pleasing an organization so I can be pleasing to Jehovah.. I'm interested in helping as many fellow humans as I can to be interested in god.. I don't care were they are from what color they are. If I can encourage them toward god I will. I don't compromise with sin if your doing a bad thing I'm going to tell you straight that god won't permit that in his presence. This ex Jehovah's wittiness if you want to call me that doesn't play favorites or enemy! Feel free to ask me and I will do my best not to feed you garbage.

I've been on this site for over seven years and I can assure you that only a small number of ex-JWs major on JW questions. I actually know quite a few ex-JWs, some of whom are participating on this site. Most of them have made their accounts private to stop JWs reporting their questions and answers and harrassing them. And most of them are blocked by a lot of JWs on here. I personally answer Qs on a wide range of subjects but because I care about the great spiritual danger JWs are in, I sometimes answer Qs about them. Somebody needs to point them to Christ as their only hope for salvation, you see. They need to have their eyes and attention taken off their organisation long enough to make them think about why their knees have never bent in Jesus' name, to confess Him as their Lord and Saviour. They need to think about why Jesus died, if not to enable 144,000 people to get to Heaven, or to atone for their personal sins. Their beliefs about what Jesus' death secured are so similar to Mormon beliefs, they ought to be worried. It's not that they are evil, or Satanists. It's just that they have been deceived.

Lillian Originally Answered: Have you ever noticed this pattern about popularity?
In many ways, I believe the "cool kids' " popularity becomes a complex for them later in life. From my observations, it appears that individuals who have already been confirmed, and even celebrated, while in high school do not feel the same motivation to further themselves and achieve more. While this absolutely is not always the case, you can see this in renditions of high school quarterbacks reminiscing on their high school days as the "best days of their lives." In many ways, because people who struggle socially in high school have reasons to both support and deny as high school years as pleasant, and for this reason, likely feel the need to gain more from the present moment. As with anything, there are many explanations and exceptions to your observation. There is also the argument that students who are not popular in high school lack popularity because they are more focused on their studies. As studious people grow up and move into college, they are placed in an environment where a greater percentage of their peers share similar values to them. Likewise, because they spent more time studying in school, they have conditioned themselves better for the real world, giving them (in theory) better chances at getting their dream job, hence, working with a group of people who share common interests and passions, allowing for larger and stronger groups of friends. On a general scale, however, I am prone to agree with you. After all, I think there is merit to Bill Gates' sentiment about treating nerds with respect, because one day you will work for them.
