@ Outahere - Its so true, Jews themselves even have enough sense to use moderation.
What I always found absurd, and highly illogical concerning not taking blood, is if the blood was sacred because it SYMBOLIZED life, how could that supersede the ACTUAL life of the person who is dying????
It makes NO sense. In JW world the SYMBOL of life is more important than the ACTUAL life, so STUPID. The sad thing though, is the lives of the many people over the years, due to a poor, archaic decision from 7 MEN in Brooklyn.
