Drunkards often scape-goat responsibility onto their drinking--as though it were morally defensible to cause accidents or death!
Serial drinking and driving is a plague on highways across the world. Drunkeness has been labeled as a "disease" and it isn't unusual
to hear about drunk drivers as "victims" of their own addictive weakness for alcohol.
But, what would you think about a drunk driver who tried to TEACH OTHERS to drink and drive WHILE INSISTING IT WAS THE RIGHT THING TO DO??
As morally indefensible as that would obviously be---there is a similar situation analogous in many ways.
THE JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES who cause damage repeatedly under the influence of their policies and doctrines seem heedless of critics who identify their wrongs and seek to hold them accountable.
Should we hold Jehovah's Witnesses responsible morally for merely demonstrating LOYALTY to their leaders teachings??
Most of us make mistakes but few of us influence as many people as we can to embrace our mistakes as Divinely Originated.
We all entertain far out and sometimes fringe notions about health in our lifetime. What we don't do is insist millions of obedient underlings practice
those fringe notions to the detriment of their own health and that of their children.
Now, concerning the emotional and psychological well-being of families and children, we look at the impact historically on Witnesses for the last hundred years and find a hazardous pattern of abuse!
This religion drives families to withdraw from normal social settings. Children are made oddballs among their schoolmates and neighbors. Further, young people are made anti-social and cynical about institutions such as Girl Scouts, Meals on Wheels, PTA, Women's shelters, Outreach to homeless, Voters groups and a host of other benign orgnizations.
REMOVING CHILDREN FROM NORMAL ACTIVITIES makes them depressed, unconfidant and withdrawn.
So much focus is concentrated on CRACKPOT PREDICTIONS of the End of the World....their's is an insidious abandonment of people's REAL NEEDS in the here and now!
There is a pattern of duplicitous scape-goating among the leaders whenever their absolutism goes off the rails in disproof. The rank and file are blamed
for "reading into" predictions rather than merely obeying the GB.
The disfellowship policies, especially since 1983, have destroyed families unnecessarily by creating a false dichotomy between concern for blood-kin and a threat of extinction at Armageddon.
Friendships are curtailed with ordinary people and made to be viewed as "worldly" contaminated dupes of demons!
This religion, while driven by end times apocalyptic fantasies, is virulent and provocative in carrying unworkable solutions to unreal problems into the homes of strangers. Like a cancer it destroys its own hosts.
The intellectual dishonesty of the leaders of Jehovah's Witnesses has been demonstrated time and again.
As their prophesy crumbles and rots in full view the books and magazines which support those ideas grow silent and then sly and finally abolishes
wrong-headed certainty with an airy wave of the GB "hand" in painting over the rust with New Light.
We BLAME Jehovah's Witnesses for having NEVER PRODUCED ANY DECENCY in handling those who find their teachings disagreeable.
They are quick to condemn without due process any member who grows skeptical. They label them enemies, apostates and mentally diseased. They tear them away from friends and families and are impudent enough to say they speak OFFICIALLY for Jehovah in so doing!
The poison of JW teachings does not end there. Oh no!
Each and every one of the 7 million members must view their Governing Body as a SUBSTITUTE for Jesus Christ and invest 100% unquestioning loyalty in their serial goofiness & policies.
THIS IS CHRISTIANITY THE IGNORES JESUS: LOOK AT THEIR ORGANIZATION CHART!
I blame Jehovah's Witnesses for having the temerity to convict people of THOUGHT CRIMES and by group bullying marginalise former member's humanity by destroying their value in the eyes of others.
When this religion is WRONG it is as absolute a wrong as can be possible.
So far, this WRONG-ness has never dropped below 100% prophetically.
I personally was admonished to view the instructions of JW leadership as a substitute for my OWN conscience and instructed to lie in carrying
out so-called NEUTRALITY toward the Military when I was a teen.
My own life was brought to a screeching pause for 2 years in non-productive and feckless idleness IMPRISONED due to Watchtower idiocy!
We can BLAME Jehovah's Witnesses for not using their own rational minds in discarding pre-enlightenment superstition to guide their own steps and we can BLAME Jehovah's Witnesses for carrying this ignorance into neighborhoods and calling it "the TRUTH".
It ISN'T "the TRUTH". It is POISON.
There is nothing to celebrate when poisoners go about their work with unrelenting seriousness empowered by a cartoon god and sociopathic mindset.
All that is necessary for EVIL to prosper is that good men do nothing to stop it!
