This has got to be a spoof...

...hasn't it? It appears to be from The Watchtower, but the theology seems pretty suspect.

Still, perhaps there is a bright side:
Are we not grateful for this insight on God's viewpoint regarding such matters? True worshippers follow closely God's mandates on cleanness to their eternal benefit! Sister N.K. from Virginia, U.S.A. tells us that since getting rid of her cat, she has not had to be preoccupied with cleaning the litter box or wasting valuable time better spent pursuing kingdom interests with the burden of purchasing cat food. This has allowed her to become a full-time pioneer; she finds that it is now easier to meet her allotted hours in field service. Godwin, a brother from Sierra Leone, puts it this way: 'I'm so grateful that God's organization is kept clean! It has freed me from the burden of owning a cat and all the spiritual pitfalls and financial commitments that go with it. I hope all the brothers will realize how the Devil subtly uses cats to corrupt and distract us from the disciple-making work.' (Matt. 24:14). What fine examples of faithfulness!

the theology in Watchtower is always suspect, but I think the fact they say no other animal washes or mates suggests it's satirical.

Yeah, but that assumes the writer knows more about animals than what he's read and been told! Letters to the editors often say animals don't engage in homosexual behaviour and as often as not a farmer will write in and say they most certainly do.

Still, it sounded more like a piss-take to me - has tounge-in-cheek written all over it. However, who's to know if someone didn't get it past the Watchtower's editors? ;-)

I hope it's a spoof - that's one of the sickest and wrongest 'crazy Christian' quotes I've ever read!

(oh, and {{{{{{{{simon}}}}}}}} - you and your dad are in my thoughts.)

I knew it! Cats are from Satan!

And importantly, trust not the man who doesn't like small furry animals.
