I started this blog to help counteract the propaganda efforts of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society of Jehovah's Witnesses. This is a multibillion dollar corporation with millions of adherents that spread their peculiar doctrines around the world.
Their beliefs on blood result in thousands of deaths. Their practice of ritualised shunning breaks up families, destroys lives and even causes suicide. Their long history of false prophecies is comical to any who haven't succumbed to their mind control techniques. Their policies have loopholes which frequently protect pedophiles, at the expense of the most innocent members of their congregations.
This giant propaganda machine has done a good job of hiding these facts from the general public and from their own members. I had the misfortune of being born into this religion and am well aware of the damage it does. I have joined thousands of other former members in an effort to educate and, hopefully, protect the public.
I believe that most Jehovah's Witnesses are victims of a dictatorial leadership and are largely ignorant of the true facts of their religion. My intention isn't to persecute them, but to challenge the leaders in their organisation, especially their Governing Body that claims to be God's channel of communication on Earth.
The videos aren't mine. They are embedded from sites like Google Video and Youtube. As a result, they won't always reflect my beliefs. They may advocate religious beliefs that are not my own. I urge you to be open minded, yet skeptical. I would be happy if this site prompts you to ask questions and do further research.
Currently I'm an agnostic, but I have an interest in religion because I know how influential and important it is. We can't really understand our fellow humans without understanding their beliefs. Religion is a root of many prejudices and religious extremism is a profound threat to modern society. However, I also believe that an open minded inquiry into religion can help us to fight this.
Aside from the main topic of this blog. I hope to also include some information on other cults, dangers in more conventional religions, agnosticism and atheism. I welcome your comments and ask that they reflect a measure of respect (even if the subject matter makes this difficult). I reserve the right to moderate comments if I feel this is necessary.
