    I didn't find this particularly surprising given JW indoctrination is all about how evil the non-believers are (and how deserving they are to be destroyed during the big A) and how the WBTS is absolutely right and everyone else is absolutely wrong - so it is not a big jump to Islamic fanaticism.

    Good point, Frazzled.

    The only difference between the two seems to be that JWs are eagerly waiting for God to destroy the "wicked", whereas Islamists are eagerly destroying the "wicked" for God.

    I think that both groups are extremists, in their own way.

    he got jailed for 20+ years - but will he serve the full sentence (22 years, I believe) or will he be free to terrorise society in 10 or 11 years' time?

    UK prison sentences need to be toughened up, IMO.

    I think there is a huge leap from being a Jehovah's Witnesses to ISIS members who go around cutting people's head's off and throwing gay people off of buildings.

    I don't see an intellectual comparison there. Sorry dude. I think you're letting your hate get the best of you. Believe it or not most of the world's problems do not stem from someone being a JW once. That's an insult to all ex-JW's.

    I agree 100% Irishman, (I won't call you mad, that is unnecessary if you are Irish !)

    The kid was ripe for being turned toward some sort of lunacy, whatever the religion of his parents.
