SPRINGFIELD, Mo. — Weary from pounding the pavement for hours a day only to have homeowners shut the door in their faces or not answer it all, Jehovah’s Witnesses will start toting bullhorns to ensure their message is heard.
Kingdom Halls across the U.S. rejoiced at the directive issued by leading Witness elders last week.
“We look at the bullhorns as an emergency tool needed to spread the word of the Lord,” said 18-year-old Ronald Plimpton. “Maybe the residents didn’t hear the door knock because they were in the bathroom or working in the basement.”
Several sociologists fear these extreme actions by the Jehovah’s Witnesses may prompt other institutions and groups to resort to similar methods. “We may see the Britannica salesman or Avon lady utilizing a handheld microphone in the near future,” says Dr. Clarence Simolt.
“I don’t plan to use them,” said door-to-door salesman Mickey Jones. “When you have something people want, there’s no need for noise.
Mr. Jones sells earplugs.

THAT IS NOT A JEHOVAH'S WITNESS. HE WOULD BE WEARING A TIE AND THERE IS NO INFORMATION OTHER THEN THIS PHOTO TO BACK UP YOUR STORY. ALSO WHO WAS THIS GUY WAS HE A JEHOVAHS WITNESS OR JUST SOMEONE ELSE PROTESTING THE MAGAZINE? THE PHOTO LOOKS A LITTLE DOCTORED IN THAT IT LOOKS LIKE THE MAG WAS ADDED IN TO THE PHOTO LATER. WHERE DID YOU GET THIS INFORMATION FROM. I THINK YOU ARE A VERY POOR SOURCE. AND ARE STARTING FALSE RUMOURS. ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE TAKING THIS INFO OUT OF CONTEXT.
YES HE IS, I AM A JEHOVA'S WITNESS AND I NEVER USED THE TIE, REALLY I HATE TIES. I WENT TO THE SERVICE WITHOUT TIE. TO HOT IN SUMMER TO WALK ON TIE. THATS FOR MEETING ONLY. AND YES WE DO THAT SOMETIMES, WE DID IT IN THE PAST WITH CARS ANS SPEAKERS.
we would be counseled for not wearing a tie! Jehovah s Witnesses are required to wear ties door to door. Also we do NOT use bullhorns for preaching the Good News. This photo is not accurate! The Society NEVER said at ANY Meeting that we were to use Bull Horns or any other speaker system in order to preach the Good News! This story is a LIE!
Um Yeah… Geo have you ever read the Weekly World News? Do you realize that they also publish stories about BatBoy?
Apparently you are some sort of offended jo-ho….but you need to think twice before posting a message such as this.
/Thanks for the CAPS….we couldn't read your post without it!
This is not true.
I'm a "Jo-Ho" and I think this is hilarious! Where's my bullhorn??
Some people think that the JW's were founded by Pastor Russell, but he died in 1916, many years before "Jehovah's Witnesses" came on the scene. Russell taught that all would be resurrected. Look up Chicago Bible Students on Google for more info.
you're reading weekly world news
the magazine that has posted stories such as "bat boy steals car and goes on 3-state joy ride, ALIEN BLOB ATE MY TRUCK!, alien mummy goes on rampage, i was bigfoots love slave!, and "stonehenge primitive attempt at stapling!"
