    Jehovah's Witnesses may have gone too far by claiming in the official Watchtower magazine that former Witnesses who leave the sect are "mentally diseased". Police in the UK have launched an inquiry as the sect may have breached religious hatred laws.


    Jehovah’s Witnesses who leave the sect are also considered apostates to be avoided by Church members. The Watchtower web site advises that Witnesses should disassociate themselves from those who leave, saying

    “shunning would be appropriate, too, for anyone who rejects the congregation.”


    Excommunicated apostates of the sect are now waiting to hear the results of the police inquiry.

    There will be no "results" of the Police enquiry, it is logged with a crime number. Nothing can be done until an act of physical or verbal abuse is reported.

    mind you looking at how steamed up certain witnesses have been over the article it won't take much for them to reach tipping point. Sadly all the hate and contempt incited by the article is on display for everyone to see.

    Not sad nugget . . . on display is where it belongs.

    It shows that the hate being induced is real . . . and those JW's who are reacting this way are too stupid to see it.

    Thank you, Friends, for the comments.

    I posted this because the information is not merely a repeat of The Independent. The words of the title - what do you think of them? - are not mine but theirs.

    I like that they put the "many needless deaths" of blood transfusion refusal in the article, but I would LOVE to see the number quantified in some way. I have never really seen a tally of blood deaths. Common sense says there must be many but common sense doesn't work on cult members.
