I don’t think JWism should be banned because I don’t like people being Dubs. Where did you get that idea?
I think they should be banned because they are a destructive cult. The blood ban alone has caused untold deaths. They scream, “Fire”, in the sense that they spout falsehood and propaganda for the sake of shock value. They also undermine real family values.
If your speech is thoughtless and causes harm to another, there should be consequences. You and I can’t say whatever we want. That’s a fact. Freedom is not absolute.
Private property? Sure, you can do what you want on your own property, within reason. Let the Dubs move away from society and live in communes. Chances are they won’t be bothered unless they start to publicly practice behaviors that are harmful. They simply don’t have that right. Their freedom does not trump the freedom of others.
Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, all the human rights, blah, blah...JWism is opposed to all that, however they Church it up.
It’s sad that ignorant R&F Dubs pay the price, much like Malawi, but that’s a consequence of ignorance, willful or otherwise.
Taxes are theft. I agree.
There’s no reason to allow Churches to operate tax free anymore. They buy up property and make huge sums of money and a great deal of religions don’t help with charity all that much.
