JWs vandalizing homes/property of apostates

    I have read over the past few years of many cases of elder harassment and unwanted visitations. However, there is a couple of stories out there where it has been presented that eventually the apostate in question comes home one day to find that their home has been trashed or covered with graffiti, which by the words written, seems to imply that it was a JW taking "revenge" or seemingly delivering divine justice against the apostate. Most of these are stories I've read online from several years ago.

    Have you individually or the group ever heard or stumbled upon these cases? If so, have you ever had reason to believe the individual in question, while truthful about their harassment, was trying to increase attention to themselves?

    I once had "Apostate" scrawled in the dirt on my car at the KH. I don't imagine anyone but a JW (and one of the attendees) would do such a thing.

    It would not surprise me in the least if some of the zealot type overstepped the line on occasion.

    StarTrekAngel and Simon, that's scary. I thought that all Witnesses were too passive to do such a thing.

    Have you checked YouTube comments recently?!...I would not call those who frequent YouTube passive!

    Although I hate JWs to the one. I would also say 99% would not do things like this. Not because they are good but because its the way they do things. They love to DF for punishment. That said I know of a couple high strung younger idiot Dubs who would during hunting season shoot the local Church sign while driving down the road. Its not common but I think it happens. I would love to catch a dubber on camera and have them paraded into court.

    Yes and to also publicly display devotion to Jehovah and his earthly chosen organization.

    Hate is love to Jah in others words.

    Its not a common practice but it does happen by a few JWS, JWS are not the most brightest lot in society as its known.

    Personally, I think those assholes do more for the XJW cause than anything we ever could.

    I'm quite certain those guys were a major - albeit unspoken - reason the Org demonized the internet for so long...

    ...they were just too f**king embarrassing. :smirk:

    Reading the first post, my initial reaction was, 'JWs may stoop to shunning ex members, but that's at the behest of the powers that run things, not an inherent idea of their own. To vandalize of their own volition would not be in the typical JW mindset' -- then I read through the thread. I'm surprised that some would do the things mentioned, but then, this religion does attract some abnormal people, so there ya go...
