What can you expect from a cult? Cult imperatives ignore common sense, they ignore reason and they ignore the need for personal development, they ignore human nature except knowing how to prey on the weak and gullible and how to keep them there.
The Watchtower religion from start to finish (and we hope it will finish soon) has had its head in the clouds and its feet off the ground.
JW org is implacably committed to an Iron Age notion of abject obedience to a totemic god as the magic key to success in life. This is a profoundly wrong dictum for the twenty first century because it ignores the individual.
As the Watchtower response to sexual abuse in its ranks has shown, it is never driven by compassion or consideration for its individual members. For those who have suffered abuse there is a crying need for serious psychological help--but could they care?
Only now where its failed behaviour is exposed by the force of modern rational methods of social welfare does the Watchtower claim that all along their creepy god cares for those who are abused. As others have pointed out the Watchtower's saccharine words of comfort are not only too late in coming but they are also insincere.
Bible literature, like cult doctrines everywhere, are about power and maintaining power; children and women were mere possessions according to the Bible, to be treated as such by patriarchal whim. The Bible condoned rape under certain circumstances and abuse by power-- the more compassionate world today no longer tolerates such outrages.
It seems to me that everything about the JW religion is wrong headed, it is out of date, it presents a false front and is run by uncaring, self-interested, ideologically driven charlatans in the name of God. The time has come for the world to get the low down on JW leadership to the end that it should permanently cease its grubby business.
