"Love Builds Happy Families" on TV
Don't be surprised when you see a Watchtower commercial while watching your favorite channel!
The Watchtower commercial starts off with a mother checking on her son, who can't sleep. The young boy is upset and has a drawing in his hand depicting the World Trade center attacks. The mother comforts her child by reading the Scriptures. The narrator of the commercial tells that in these troubling times, you should take the time to talk to your children. The audience can call a toll free number for further information.
The radio was used extensively in the 1920's and 1930's by the Watchtower Society. By 1933 the Society was using 403 radio stations to broadcast its message. Later this was replaced by house to house visits.
Could it be the fact that the commercial is about taking care of children an indication that the Public Affairs Office of Jehovah's Witnesses is trying to divert the attention from the recent sexual child abuse cases among the Witnesses? Might we give them a call and remind them?
