It’s too bad that judges, and the rest of outsiders, really don’t understand the true dynamic with regard to blood transfusions in the JW community.
And they don’t understand because they are unwilling to listen and to learn. They are just as hard headed as the Governing Bafoons.
The issue can be clearly understood if even a small amount of mental energy is expended on the topic. The fact that the courts struggle so thoroughly demonstrates how little effort they are truly willing to put into it. They would rather be confused in arrogance than educated in humility.
The issue is simple. JWs refusing blood, regardless of their age, are not being ‘faithful to bible principles’ but rather are obeying men whom they foolishly trust, to tell them what these “bible principles” mean for them.
With very little effort, if they would humbly accept the helps offered them, these judges and politicians and law enforcers could make and enforce the correct decisions in the cases of JWs of any age with respect to refusing blood products that will save life.
But they don’t want to know. They don’t want to see. It’s the same issue with child molestation. They don’t want to deal with it, because they are spineless-political flotsam.
Why is is that child molesters are given a slap on the wrist? As long as our society does little or nothing to those who sexually abuse children then the likes of the Catholic Church and Watchtower Baffoons predators will keep abusing and hiding the abuse with impunity.
Who’s to blame in all this? Society is.
