I am writing to you today because I have just learned of a "Hurricane Katrina" fraud being perpetrated against the American Red Cross with the goal of making a quick and handsome profit for the perpetrators of the scheme, who are The Watchtower Bible & Tract Society of Brooklyn New York, whose members are known as Jehovah's Witnesses.
What I have learned from my source, who must remain anonymous, is that groups of "volunteer" Jehovah's Witnesses have been obtaining materials for the Hurricane Katrina rebuilding effort with the assistance of the American Red Cross.
The first priority of these Jehovah's Witness volunteers is the repair of their houses of worship, known as "Kingdom Halls." Yet within the walls of these Kingdom Halls the Jehovah's Witnesses are taught that the American Red Cross is a part of Satan's world and is slated for destruction when Jehovah God brings Armageddon, which is due any day now.
Two reasons Jehovah's Witnesses would give to support their condemnation of the American Red Cross would be:
1. The American Red Cross encourages blood transfusions when medically necessary. Jehovah's Witnesses are against blood transfusions and blood donations.
2. The American Red Cross acts "in accord with the military authorities as a medium of communication between the people of the United States and their armed forces" as directed by the US Congress. Jehovah's Witnesses give allegiance to no nation of Man, and view all the nations of this world as opposers of God's Kingdom.
There is another aspect of this Watchtower SCAM that goes beyond what I have mentioned so far. I have learned that these Jehovah's Witness Hurricane Katrina reconstruction volunteers are also engaged in the repair of individual homes in the affected area, and it is in this regard that this fraud becomes especially scandalous, in my opinion.
IF, and ONLY if, the homeowner is a Jehovah's Witness "in good standing" in the local congregation will he benefit from the work of these volunteers. If you are the neighbor of a Jehovah's Witness or a former member of the congregation, then Jehovah's Witnesses would just as soon you were dead, which you soon will be - because Armageddon is coming any day now.
So Jehovah's Witnesses DISCRIMINATE on the basis of RELIGIOUS BELIEF.
But bear with me - it gets worse.
Those Jehovah's Witnesses that get volunteer i.e., unpaid, Jehovah's Witness reconstruction assistance, using materials DONATED by the American Red Cross are then REQUIRED to sign over any and all insurance settlements they receive to THE WATCHTOWER BIBLE & TRACT SOCIETY!
The WATCHTOWER has their people working for free, using material provided by the American Red Cross, and the money flows into Brooklyn!
THE WATCHTOWER BIBLE & TRACT SOCIETY reports annual income of just shy of ONE BILLION DOLLARS. The volunteers who work in the WATCHTOWER factories get room and board and $100 per month. The WATCHTOWER operates no charities. They have no orphanages, no hospitals, no soup kitchens, and they give nothing to the American Red Cross or any other charitable group. Their Billion dollars a year comes from donations. They are a RELIGION, you see. They have devoted themselves to telling the rest of us that Jehovah God is going to kill more than 99% of the earth's population (anyone who is not a Witness has a slim likelihood of surviving) - any day now.
...and there will be no American Red Cross around afterward to help sort things out.
I realize that the American Red Cross operates under the fundamental principles of Humanity, Impartiality, Neutrality, Independence, Voluntary Service, Unity, and Universality.
Do they also turn a blind eye to such scandalous FRAUD?
I urge the American Red Cross to look into this matter to see for themselves if this story is true and accurate. I trust that you will then know what to do with the hypocritical fraudsters of THE WATCHTOWER BIBLE & TRACT SOCIETY.
A concerned American
