Jehovah's Witnesses encourage members to divorce anyone who leaves the organization and there is a secret elders book to help them lie their way to custody of innocent children. Jehovah's Witnesses raise their children with no Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving, birthdays, extra-curricular activities at school. They strongly discourage higher education.
The government has to step in and force them to give life-saving blood transfusions when needed. Babies and small children are physically abused if they do not sit quietly through 5 long meetings each week. Children are dragged out in all kinds of weather to knock on stranger's doors. Children have been bitten by dogs in the door-to-door work, died of heat exhaustion at conventions and are not allowed to see any member of the family who leaves the organization.
It is truly a horrendously abusive religion that splits families, denies extended family any visitations with children, causes medical death because of their ban against blood transfusions, causes suicides and murders because of the crazy teachings that Armageddon is coming any minute.
It is a high-control organization that plucks Scriptures out of context and uses them as "proof texts" for some really crazy beliefs. God is watching. And with the internet, the whole world is waking up to the fact that The Watchtower, Bible and Tract Society has a written policy that discourages local leaders from reporting child molestations and rapes.
Candace Conti was the first woman to refuse a gag order in return for big money pay-outs in exchange for silence about the sexual abuse they suffered as children and young teens.
I congratulate Candace Conti and applaud her strength and resolve to stick it out and not be silenced. Her story is available for anyone who wants the real truth about this organization.
