I wouldn't label it as an "extreme" comparison, IMHO. Maybe not the first thing that comes to mind, but not that farfecthed. I know congos differ somewhat from each other, but it wasn't the extremists who considered Worldy people as enemies, but most jws as a whole that I knew. Hell, I heard it from casual conversation to public discourses, along with articles labeling the worldly people and goverments as "enemies". You know, part of this system of things that belong to satan? Or am I making this up?
But then again, it's been years since I actually listened to a public talk or read WT book or a magazine with any kind of interest what so ever, LOL. The last big scare I felt from this ORG, was during the 80's and early 90's about the end being right around the corner with the end of generation. Since that debacle I was there in body, but not in mind :).
To me, all religion is poison with the potential of inflicting great harm (DEATH) not only to their members, but also to the outside populace in the name of god (jim jones, DAVID KORESH to name few). We know of the no blood policy and with some of us here having experieced the loss of a loved one due to that policy.
Just like CRY said. If the Org tomorrow, came out with a new flicker of light with an article or public discourse demanding a "call to arms", asking for the death of apostates and anyone in oppsition to the ORG, do you believe some JW's would obey without question? What would stop a JW zealot who already shuns his or her family and left them for dead for not being part of jehovah's org , prepared to not take blood or proudly serve on Blood liason committe insuring no blood is transfused and that JEEHOBAH'S LAW is obeyed, in carry out such an extremist act?
If you say no, then you're twice the fool as those who are still in.
