He showed old footage of brothers being beaten, tar and feathered(although this wasn't specifically shown, it was mentioned), JW teachers losing their jobs, and other injustices. This section was to show the freedoms that JW's brought to all of us living in the USA.
OK Thanks so much for posting this.
The above sentence makes me MAD!!!! The JWs did not bring us FREEDOMS!!! The collective conscience of onlookers and the 'wordly justice system' brought us freedoms!!!
They were nothing more than collateral damage. It's made to make themselves feel better. It's a self-congratulatory position.
Shit, based on this example, black Americans have 'brought us waaaayyyy more freedoms' considering all the times they have hung from the trees as strange fruit.
What about the way the Japanese 'brought us waaaayyy more freedoms' with the loss of all of their posessions and the forced internment in California during WW II?
I could go on. The point is, the JWs took unusual stances not because they wanted to bring us freedom, but because they felt Jehovah was using ONLY THEM since 1914.
