I would say refusing life saving medical treatment for children extremist.

Good riddance. At least for Russians.

Oh well. I would be against it if they didn't stop little kids from having life saving blood transfusions and organ transplants.

I don't particularly like them not letting their adult followers get transfusions and transplants, but that's their choice.

Religious practice should have ZERO impact on a child's medical treatment, and any religious cult that advocates for religious belief to be a factor considered in a child's medical care should be actively suppressed.

How are they less retarded than Scientology?

Tell me that, and maybe I will pretend to care.


Same scam, different way to go about collecting money from dupes.
And Scientology may be even more evil with the whole "pay to play" pyramid scheme set up to enlightenment only to find out it was all about really bad science fiction writing and you wasted your life to become that "clear".

well no birthdays celebrated, no deaths mourned, no Christmas, no new year celebrations, no holidays, no blood transfusions to save their lives, no loyalty except to the leaders of JW's, No Fun. Call Christians lost except if they are part of their group who are the only true Christians, NOT!

Job celebrated birthdays, God allowed holidays, celebrations and feasts, even the father of the prodigal son through a party for his son.

No marble playing, no monopoly, no card games, no scrabble, no backgammon, no chess, no billiards, no car races, no sports, no battleship, stratego or any other games.

They should be ran out of town on a rail.

But they have their rights here n the US but not in Russia.

You will find they are always trying to get followers from other Christian groups. You will not find them going to the middle east trying to win the Islamist. and they don't go and evangelize like other Christians do, they steal sheep from other folds with twisted scriptures and their man mad doctrines and dogmas.

Jehovah witness is not a religion is cult within a religion.

They are as bad as any other extremist wannabe social religion that wants to change society to their image of what a Christian society is out to be.

No far from what the Islamic cult is.

Jehovah's Witnesses were in German concentration camps for practicing what they believe. It was not just Jews.

A lot of people are just blind by their own intolerance and hatred here. They didn't celebrate Christmas? Oh my goodness!!! Christmas is a Pagan holiday anyway. You should be wary of those religions who DO practice it. They have reasons for what they believe in. Maybe some of you could enlighten yourselves and find out WHY before judging. That is, if you really want to know why they do what they do.

My honest answer?

Any religion/cult that are active in covering up and/or ignoring abuse of any kind.

That's honest, alright.

Wrong...but honest. We'll agree to disagree on this topic.

I'm not sure how my opinion can be wrong. Just like your opinion can't be wrong.

In my opinion, abusive cults should be banned. Jehovahs witnesses, Scientologists or whoever that are active in abuse and/or covering it up.

But if you disagree, you disagree. I'm not here to change anyone's mind, just stating my opinion.

Let me rephrase it.

We disagree. I phrased that, well, wrongly. Apologies all 'round.

I admit, they are pretty annoying when they show up on a weekend, all early at your door, but this is a bit much.



They're not just annoying. They are teaching doctrine which doesn't line up with scripture. There's really no place for that kind of BS.

There were Baptist, Lutherans and other Christians in those camps as well.

As individual objectors. Which is very fine for them, as they had to go against both what their Churches were doing, and the State.

Jehovah's Witnesses was the only religious group to be persecutted by Hitler. The rest of the religions in Nazi occupied Europe, like the great hartlot they are, got right into bed with Hitler. And many of them, the Catholics especially, and their clergy were exceedingly overjoyed at the persecution and ban of Jehovah's Witnesses.

And not a few of the clergy helped in the persecution of Jehovah's people.

I remember reading the account of a nun who tried to force a 13-year-old servant of Jehovah to Heil Hitler at school. When the brave girl who stood up for Jehovah refused the ungodly command, the Nun marched our young brave daughter into the forest, took out a pistol and shot her in the head.

Religious people, especially of the Churches have always had a seething hatred for God and his people. And they always show it.

They fulfill the prophecy of the people who have an appearance of godly devotion, but prove false to its power. They are, as Jesus described them whitewashed walls on the outside, but full of dead men's bones.

never mind some people ignorance and brainwashing is just useless to try and debate. 200,000 Christians were killed in camps by Nazi's and the JW's didn't have even 10% of that a members in Germany. Sound like JW hype they feed dumwit brainwashed followers to make them feel they are the only true Children of God.

Whatever happened to "live and let live"? Now it's 'live the way I want you to, or you and all of your ilk will be banned from society!"
Too authoritarian for my way of thinking.

We have these churches in my town, and they bother no one.

I still prefer live and let live.
