Parakeet Would they have allowed blood if YOUR life had been on the line? I've known some otherwise decent dubs, but many of their decisions can and have ruined lives.
The blood ban, disfellowshipping, shunning -- these are not the acts of good, innocent people.
The WTS is certainly guilty, but when adults CHOOSE to give up their responsibility to think for themselves and allow the WTS to tell them what to think, they are just as guilty.
I'm not saying it was right... but then I did! When you are spiritually strong thinking your doing Gods will you do anything for him...Your not thinking about hurting others, your not thinking about what's behind it all, just that you are doing Gods will, and having faith that you will be going to paradise that was promised!!
