The subject of this debate: Is Prince a good Jehovah's Witness?

By "Prince" is meant the recording artist, Prince.
By "good" is meant "obedient, or putting in a reasonable amount of effort 2 b obedient".

I say: Prince is clearly violating the tenets of the Jehovah's Witnesses with his lyrics on his latest album.

Let's look at some lyrics from his latest music CD PLECTRUMELECTRUM:

1. Promotes Violence

"You get so much fun
Dream and love each other
On the others' term
Taste a bitter sweet, undone
Now we both too sleepy to GET THE GUN"

http://wol.jw.org...

2. Promotes Adultery

Here's more lyrics:

"If you don't like it, round here,
find another love, another love."

http://wol.jw.org...

3. Promotes Witchcrafts

"Sleepin' with your face on my phone"

http://wol.jw.org...

4. Promotes Drug Abuse

"Let's funk, let's roll"
"Million dollar party to their nickel and dime"
"I saw whitecaps on the water today"
"I saw a black butterfly lose it's wings today"

"Roll" is a clear reference to MDMA. "Nickel" and "dime" are clear references to prices (5$ or 10$) on small amounts of drugs.
"Whitecaps" is a reference to methamphetamine. "Black butterfly" is black-tar heroin.

5. Homosexuality

"I got a boy, got boy trouble
I got a man I just don't want
Got myself in soapy bubble
He wants love but I don't"

"He brings me sweets he brings me flowers
He says he wants to be my friend
He rings me nearly every hour
There goes that phone again"

http://wol.jw.org...

Note, he made Plectrumelectrum way after becoming JW.

I have presented clear evidence demonstrating that Prince is promoting behaviors contrary to the teachings of the Watchtower Jehohav Witnesses. The Pro must refute, and justify Prince's latest behavior.

Thank you.

This argument is illogical for several reasons:

1- Who really cares about whether the wording of music is obscene or offensive? ,

2- Cheating on someone is natural human instinct

3- Homosexuality is nothing to be ashamed about

There are numerous fallacies about homosexuality which must be eliminated,

I am sure you would disagree with me.
