I always wondered about this when it came to pledging. When running info when the name of the organization you are trying to pledge and you forget to bow and well you know what is coming next if you don't bow your head on the organization's name.
Also when you take wood and have to get in the cut and have to say the name of the org. Having to say the name of the organization while doing push ups.
As well as have to bow before the membership if someone within the organization if they drop something and having to get down on one knee and not to look into a members face.
My question is for those that pledge does this create a sense of spiritual bondage in a sense because I know people talk about showing the organization respect but I always wondered if their was more to it spiritually? It seemed like it bothered me saying these things because me having to bow on an organizations name shouldn't it be bowing to God's Name I don't know I thought about this stuff though.
It presents the atmosphere of worship. How could it not. This is tantamount to idolatry. It's physical, psychological, spiritual, etc. bondage. There is no difference between this and slavery with a few exceptions. One being that it's black's enslaving blacks, but what's worse is that it is willful enslavement for the sole purpose of becoming a member.
Question, are you born again?
Call me some time to talk about this. Leave a message if i don't answer. 919/278-8911
I am born again
Only reason why I asked is because nobody every really spoke the other stuff that goes on during a process.
Like carrying items on line and carrying bricks, other items.
Having to write in your note pad same colors as the organization, etc.
So I was thinking about all those things and wondering does those things create a spiritual tide to that organization so that is why I asked.
Thanks Min H
What about auxiliary organizations like sweethearts. A love interest of mine is a sweetheart to Phi Beta Sigma. It really breaks my heart. What type of treatment, oaths and activities do they have to endure. If a pledge endure such humiliating acts what about a Sigma carnation or dove?
