    Sounds like a real nut job.

    My farther did these news/documentary projects for the WTBS. He once did a study on the number of mentally ill people who were Witnesses. The number was rather high. He was told to bury his project.

    @ truth_b_known...

    If that's true, it doesn't surprise me.

    There's anecdotal evidence that back in the 90s, the bOrg was quietly looking into reported increases of severe depression amongst the rank-and-file.

    Then, suddenly, they made the blanket statement that "Jehovah's Witnesses are the happiest people on Earth (period)."

    Ten bucks says that - like your dad's research - the number turned out to be rather high (and, more troubling, that said depression was being worsened - or even caused by - aspects of WT ideology), and they buried it.
