Really? JWs are easy to rile up. Tell me what's the beef with having blood and organ transplants. Why would you be against that? Logically speaking.
Well the bible forbids drinking blood or cannibalism. Thats why all christians hate vampire stories. For Jehovas Witness, a blood transfusion or organ transplant is just about the same thing.
"Whatever interest we take in the fortune of those with whom we have no acquaintance or connexion, and who are placed altogether out of the sphere of our activity, can produce only anxiety to ourselves, without any manner of advantage to them. To what purpose should we trouble ourselves about the world in the moon?"
If I ever find anything funny in the magazines, I'll be sure to scan & upload it, although it's mostly just rhetoric, vague doomsday predictions and paintings of families sitting under trees with lions and elephants.
I hate those sappy pictures - I want to write an atheist pamphlet with families and kittens on it, with just as much stupid condescension as those pieces of tripe - except in reverse - You know "organized religion has killed thousands of people in developing countries - wont you help them become reasonable and productive." or "with the strength of your convictions we can help you overcome the brainwashing of your youth to become a happy self sufficient adult."
If your religion is incompatible with free speech, the problem isnï¿½t with free speech.
Atheism is a religion like OFF is a TV channel, bald is a hair color and not collecting something is a hobby.
There could also be atheist chick tracts where all religious people are depicted as psychos who launch into hysterics over the smallest things, and come up with the weakest arguments imaginable for religion. Then an atheist comes and deconverts one in a dialogue like this:
Atheist: "Why do you believe in god?" Believer: "God requires me to believe in him to be saved!" A: "Without God and the idea of being saved, you don't have to worry about any of that." B: "But I was told God exists!" A: "God does not exist." B: "Oh, ok."
Another person that stays hardcore religious wastes his/her life living the personal hell created by fundamentalism, only to die and become food for atheist worms.

I did answer the door to some JW's wearing only a towel once. It may have been the previous nights odor of booze and cigarettes or the expression on my face, either way after several minutes of delivering a sermon to a silent glare they mumbled some excuses and left.
