    OK, so I know that the following article is from a Roman Catholic Church blogger, but I thought that his ratios and comparisons were very well set out, if anyone else is interested.

    I have always thought it was odd that both are a religion works but you get a free trip to paradise if you kill your self. Plus all ex members are bad bad people.

    There are interesting similarities between RCs and JWs. They traditionally view their org as the saving ark, they have a meditorial clergy though the JWs speak of elders and governing body and none of them worship Jesus as their only God. Similarities between JW and Islam? Well, works. The Muslims seem to hold Muhammed in higher esteem than the JWs hold Jesus

    Here is a sobering similarity - "If they had gotten rid of the apostasy punishment islam would not exist today" - Yusaf al-Qaradawi - Spiritual leader of the muslim brotherhood.

    I find it interesting that the JW`s adopted the same Bible books as inspired as the Catholics and only excluded what the Catholics describe as Deuterocanonicals or Apocrypha ,the same as the Protestant religions.

    And not all Christian religions have the same number of books in their Bible .

    I found that most if not all the WT false doctrines go back to Theo Sufism. The Whirling Dervish are Sufists - they spin and spin till they are so dizzy they feel no pain. How very like WT who get people busier and busier so they no longer think for themselves and are willing to follow instructions coming from GB that do not appear sensible.

    Theo Sufism has connections to the Mafia via a man called Mazzini (1800s) who was involved in establishing both Theo Sufism and the Mafia. Mazzini was in with Garibaldi. They were both members of the Carbonari and wanted to unite Italy. I believe the composer Verdi was greatly admired by them. Verdi wrote Nabucco - aka Nebuchadnezzar

    Guess they wanted to get back to the good old days of the Roman Empire when Italy was all one.
