    Are you saying JW.Org should not teach their followers to hate Apostates ?

    The President was sending a message to all the Religions to grow up and work for the better ideals they espouse.

    No religion should teach children to hate people

    This is exactly what religion does.

    That organisation is such a joke. They can't even enforce their own resolutions, let alone destroying ALL world religions.

    Which Organization?

    The UN or JWs?

    DesirousofChange - "Which Organization? The UN or JWs?"


    And he's right.

    The Security Council can barely enforce resolutions to protect religious freedoms, let alone marshal a planet-wide campaign to supress them.


    The "Wild Beast" has no teeth, the "King of the North" still hasn't been recast two decades after the fall of the old Soviet Union, and "Babylon the Great" is still plugging away.

    Nothing in Fred Franz' End-Times script has played out the way it was supposed to, but Freddie left no protege, so the WTS is stuck with it (although it's no surprise JWs don't study the Revelation Climax book anymore; its scenarios are less and less plausible as time goes on).

    Well then why does this president keep defending and touting Islam?

    Well who the hell has he been bombing and killing for the past 6 years? Your not even logical.

    Context... it is a silly thing.

    The future must not belong to those who target Coptic Christians in Egypt – it must be claimed by those in Tahrir Square who chanted “Muslims, Christians, we are one.” The future must not belong to those who bully women – it must be shaped by girls who go to school, and those who stand for a world where our daughters can live their dreams just like our sons. The future must not belong to those corrupt few who steal a country’s resources – it must be won by the students and entrepreneurs; workers and business owners who seek a broader prosperity for all people. Those are the men and women that America stands with; theirs is the vision we will support.

    The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam. Yet to be credible, those who condemn that slander must also condemn the hate we see when the image of Jesus Christ is desecrated, churches are destroyed, or the Holocaust is denied. Let us condemn incitement against Sufi Muslims, and Shiite pilgrims. It is time to heed the words of Gandhi: “Intolerance is itself a form of violence and an obstacle to the growth of a true democratic spirit.” Together, we must work towards a world where we are strengthened by our differences, and not defined by them. That is what America embodies, and that is the vision we will support.

    It was a powerful Speech which will be remembered, and is difficult to find genuine fault with.

    I do hope a coming together of Nations to destroy I.S / I.S.I.L goes further, and works toward eradicating all groups who would use terror and illegal force to accomplish their aims.

    Sadly , it is not jehovahs witnesses alone who teach and preach shunning /ostracising of their members who have left for one reason or another , their are many other religions who do also .

    And the children who are the initial victims become the perpetrators of this cycle producing a domino effect.
