Jehovah’s Witnesses benign?

A recent comment suggested that I should leave Jehovah’s Witnesses alone as they do not hurt anyone. My retort:

You mean like refusing a blood transfusion in a critical blood loss situation (including children) never hurts anyone?

Shunning of family members that leave the faith never hurt anyone?

Not automatically reporting child abuse to secular authorities, or having in place child safeguarding practises, never hurt anyone?

Changing dogma, prophecies that are false, women covering heads in submission to men should they lead over a brother in prayer, and women having no position of authority never hurt anyone?

Suggesting the United Nations, government agencies, non governmental agencies, are part of the evil system of things while not actively helping in humanitarian action for those outside the faith – never hurt anyone?

Everyone is free to have their religion and conscience. No one is entitled to cause harm and get away with it without comment.

  1. Jehovah’s Witnesses *blood transfusion confusion*.

    In 2013 God’s will and scripture has little to do with the Jehovah’s Witnesses position on use of blood products.
    The JW leadership is foremost concerned what will play out in a secular court of law as to the parent Watchtower being held liable for wrongful deaths.
    Most Jehovah’s Witnesses rushed to the ER with massive blood loss will cry NO BLOOD right up to their last breath.

    The shocker is they can now have most of the blood components that will pull them through,but they are so indoctrinated that blood is forbidden that they can’t comprehend the loopholes.
    The Watchtower has drilled and grilled us that our stand on blood is NON NEGOTIABLE.
    The loopholes that allow blood usage is to save the Watchtower corporation money from blood death liability suits.
    This is a truly evil organization that would sacrifice tens of thousands of men,women,children for the almighty dollar.
    The blood products ban has been in force since 1945 the buzz today about it being a *personal conscience matter* and the hope of new medical advances like artificial blood don’t undo all those who have past perished.
    The New York city based Watchtower sect is concerned foremost with liability lawsuits for wrongful death.They know that if they repeal the ban on *whole* blood transfusion,that it will open the door for legal examination of all the thousands who have died since 1945.

    Cults do get people killed!
    50-100 times as many men,women,children have been killed by the Watchtower society ban on *whole* blood transfusions than at Jonestown kool-aid mass murders.
    *tell the truth don’t be afraid*
