why do jehovah's witness halls have no windows?

Discussion in 'Personal' started by anon63, Jan 4, 2011.

  1. Just that really. I pass two on the way to work and they are large, newish buildings which have no windows at all. It strikes me as odd and I have no idea why this is. Anyone know?

    Maybe they're sponsored by Apple?
     
  4. To stop "non believers" vandalising the hall.

    Nar, they lock and bolt that to keep 'em in. But windows could be smashed you see...

     
  12. I pass four of them on my way to work.
    Is it me, or are they more commonly found in quite 'rough' areas?
     
  13. Hence having no windows.
     
  14. YES! [​IMG]
     
  15. The two I pass are in well to do areas.

    Yes, but it doesn't explain why other places of worship in rough areas DO have windows. Unbroken ones.
     
  17. I'm going to have to drive to work the long way tomorrow just to check, but I'm almost positive ours has windows...and it's pretty much in the middle of town, so not rough, but not well to do...
     
  18. Wouldn't there be too many, er, witnesses?
     
  19. Aaaww! I thought I was onto something! [​IMG]
     
  20. Do mosques have windows?
