I just read up a bit on Jehovah's Witnesses and have a question. Since JWs try to seclude themselves from the rest of the pagan world, how did you get to go to parties such as this? Or is this a regular school and it happened to be a kid's birthday? Either way, are JWs kids even allowed to mix with other kids in public schools?

It was my birthday today... I can still say that because I still haven't gone to sleep... All I can say is that the cake is now, has always been, and probably will always be a lie. Nothing really pans out the way it's presented to you when you're a kid. It sucks :(

You know, I didn't realize Jehovah's Witnesses existed until I was an adult and when my friend was telling me they didn't celebrate practically anything, I was appalled! How could someone force children to go through life without participating in celebrations? :O

I'm assuming that the comments here represent 100% of swb's readership. I wonder why 100% of popstrip readers come from a conservative religious background, but are themselves liberal? (Religion seems to vary) In reality I suppose it makes more sense that this specific strip just attracts that specific set of people to comment.

haha, first grade for me. On my birthday I brought in enough treats for everyone in the class except myself and after I passed them out I sat at my desk awkwardly. It was like the best of both worlds! (father was catholic mother was a jehovahs witness)

I am so sorry. I thought it was bad being brought up Roman Catholic, but at least my family took my "I'm not doing this anymore" relatively well at my First Communion. This reminds me of a girl I went to school with. I always felt bad because she had a lot of restrictions placed on her due to her religion. It really ostracized her from the rest of the kids. Religions just have no consideration for their followers getting beat up on the playground.

Thank god my parent's gave up on the religious upbringing when I turned 11. I got described as a lost soul afterwards :P

I'm going to decline to say something that certain groups may find highly offensive. ... You know what, it's the internet. A religious upbringing is a fantastic way to royally screw up a human being.
