His name is Swahilian, Jehovah's isn't

Because the English language is ******* retarded and you the sounds letters are supposed to represent are becoming more and more irrelevant.
I mean seriously why the hell is their an h at the end? are you called jehovahuhs witnesses? I ******* hate this language, why can't words be spelled logically?

We are called Jehovah's Witnesses, how would 'jehovahuhs witnesses 'make any sense? It would make it sound completely different

The language is sophisticated and interesting, spelling words the way they sound would make it boring and only suitable for the retarded

No it would make it ******* logical
Letters exist to represent sounds

Adding extra letters to words helps represent what sound the previous letter is supposed to make, much like accents in the French and Spanish language, and diaresis in German

Without guidance like this, the pronunciation of words would be to open to interpretation which would lead to confusion

well why not just make new letters to represent new sounds?

Not worth the work it would take to correct and amend every single document using the English language

Because people are uneducated.
