    JWS are NOT a cult, and not destructive.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Please give an example of an organization that you would consider to be "destructive". This will help me to understand your point of view.

    PS: This is not Randy's site.

    Instead of cult, you could also use high control group. When a JW hears you describe them as a group, they feel like you think they're not important. When you say cult, they like it because it makes them feel persecuted. But they don't like being called a group at all. Doesn't make them feel persecuted, just redundant.
