Comparing Jehova's Witness and Islamic Info Brochures

A fascinating experience - within a few days of each other, I was given some info brochures on Muslim customs, culture, and theology and on Jehova's Witness customs, culture, theology. It's interesting to compare them - they take completely opposite approaches to educating people about their faiths.

I snapped a couple of pictures of each. I think these are pretty representative pictures -

Jehova's Witnesses:

How a Die-Hard Christian Strengthened my Agnosticism

On Runner's Ravings

By Steven Chaffin, Jr.

Trekking from my introductory philosophy course to a large, stereotypical lecture microeconomics class is always worthwhile. Between the two halls is a wonderfully unique place, known as Speaker’s Circle. Within the brick-paved circle, through which hundreds of students pass daily, lies a limitless right to free speech.

Anyone, be it a student, faculty member, or someone off the street can enter the circle and say anything they please, no matter how controversial, rude, or loud. I have seen communists bashing the free market, and have heard many proclaim their love to certain controversial leaders around the world.

More commonly, however, Speaker’s Circle offers something less controversial and less surprising: a group of die-hard Christians. These are the people that desperately want you to convert, to leave college, and join a nunnery. The very same people that mock modernity’s sinful practices and call for radical change.
