I'm wondering if you all could help me with my next video that I want to put up in the next couple of days (though I'm hoping for tonight), I want to come up with a list of the most prominent urban legends surrounding JWs and then refute them whatever they may be.
I'm thinking there's the urban legend about the question on Jeopardy that said the NWT was the most accurate would be a good one. That one stems from an online powerpoint presentation named Theological Jeopardy and a book which was written comparing six different translations of the bible. However confirmed by the producers and archivers of Jeopardy questions that it never happened.
There's the John Denver myth about him telling all the JWs to leave his concert, which stems from an incident where he told the audience "This next set is rather patriotic so if you're a JW this might be a good time to head to the bathroom or the concession stands."
There was also one about a guest on Oprah bashing the JWs and her standing up for them saying that several worked for her and asked the guest to leave. Apparently it was supposedly a Johnny Carson myth originally and it was about Mormons.
I would also like to address the myth about bloodless surgeries being less inherent risk than having a blood transfusion with the statistics on how many are actually infected adversely from blood transfusions vs the amount of people who die from not having blood transfusions.
So if I could have your help, are there any other really prominent urban legends about JWs that can be refuted, and if you could point me in the direction of where they can be refuted that would be great!
Thanks everyone for your assistance :)
