Re-reading the QFR from the 10/15/2000 WT I realised how deceptively muddled their reasoning was.
First they say we are no longer under the (Mosaic) Law, then they quote the phrase "abstain from blood" with no scriptural ref, and of course no ref to the context of this phrase, and then they say that not pouring out the blood is against god's law, (the law we are not under) ?????.
This ignorant and lethal doctrine should be attacked in every way, and on every occasion, possible.
