Alberta Man (Lawrence Hughes) brings protest to Georgetown
Ruge said Hughes "can say whatever he wants," but there was no truth to his claims.
"We're not those kind of people," said Ruge
As I have pointed out many times in the past, you just can't buy that kind of publicity. His day will negate a few hundred thousand hours of door knocking.

Why don't Jehovah's Witnesses accept blood transfusions?
We follow the Bible command, found at Acts chapter 15, verse 20, Acts chapter 21, verse 25, and elsewhere, that Christians must "abstain from . . . blood." Jehovah's Witnesses request the use of nonblood medical alternatives, which are widely accepted and used by the medical community.
Good for Lawrence.
I was reading a poem allegedly written by Lawrence's daughter 2 days before she passed away. I found it on the internet and would rather not post it incase Lawrence browses here; it may bring back sad feelings. Clearly though I think this goes far beyond them threatening her with damnation. From the words in her poem it looks to me that she was lied to about the fact that she was going to die.
