12 Facts about Jehovah’s Witnesses you need to Know

I have just come across this article:


Jehovah’s Witnesses organization like just about any other cult believes that they are the only people who have God’s backing, and like any other cult out there have created outrageous rules for themselves that can only make sense to them and them alone.
Here are 12 most outrageous facts about Jehovah’s Witnesses. I’ve classified them from the most trivial one to the most damaging one.

12 Outrageous Facts about Jehovah’s Witnesses you need to Know | by Sylviane Nuccio | Medium

I wonder how a JW member would defend those rules.

Does the medium hate anything other than religion? Do they ever have writers who know — or at least pretend to know — what they're talking about?

Much more importantly, what difference do those things have with Christianity in general? Much of that is straight from the Bible.

It seems that Sylviane Nuccio knows very well what she is talking about.

Personally, I do NOT care what the Witnesses believe.

I am only interested in one thing: When I see a group of young Witness gentlemen, do I need to fear that I am going to be sucker punched and then robbed?

The answer is NO.

The Witnesses are among the most courteous people that one will come across when out in public.

More power to them.

May God help us!
So that they will NEVER be in power!


Personally, I would rather be ruled by the Witnesses than by BLM or ANTIFA or Nancy Pelosi, a tragedy that seems likely come January.



Happy Labor Day (maybe our last happy Labor Day).

Fascists always tend to view things with a fascist lense. In a democracy you're not "ruled" by any faction. Perhaps we should try that.

It seems that some use the term "Nazi" at random for anything they do not like.
But for me only a Nazi is a Nazi.

Some people on this site call me a Nazi. I dont make the rules, I just try to make the people who do make the rules live by them.

Absolutely nothing. She doesn't have anything to do with 'Nazi's' She opposes Trump, so I suppose she more like the French Resistance.

Or the German resistance - living as she does in the same country as Trump.
Yes, that's the way I see it too.

It is rather Trump, who has some Nazi features.

His "Make America great again!" could come straight out of a speech by Mr. Hitler.

I have just come across this article:

Sylviane Nuccio
Sylviane is a relationship coach for women and helps ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses who struggle after their exist of the cult. Blog: Sylviane Nuccio




In fairness......

If one can't even edit that properly - how can we expect her to have done a proper research? :shrug:

I'm not defending JW.
We can find a lot of things SERIOUSLY wrong with Jehovahs Witnesses......much more than just those stated in that BLOG -
which is more likely done by a feminist blogger! :roll:
