Jehovah's Witnesses on BBC World Service radio
A friend, who is generally not at all interested in religion and never had any dealings with JWs (beyond saying 'no thanks' at the door), sent me the youtube link to this, suggesting I should listen.
She was shocked and thoroughly disgusted at what she had learned, partiicularly about shunning, the two witness rule and the whole attitude of the organisation to abuse victims,. She wanted to spread the word.
I think my friend's reaction will be typical of many non-JWs who listen to the programme or podcast.
It's satisfying that, the harmful aspects of this religion are becoming more and more widely known by the general public.
The illusion of JWs as a benign, well meaning, if slighty weird and irritating group is, at leastt in the UK, fading quite fast now, thanks to the internet and other media.
