They arrive at disasters early so that they can help ONLY their own, and that they even do badly. They use "donated" materials from the generous community, free labor via brothers that come down to help, and then when the homeowner gets the payout from insurance, it is signed over to the Society. 100% profit margin!I only have one thing to say to people who are obviously against Jehovah's Witnesses. If you feel that they do not offer anything positive to the community, fair enough. You are entitled to your opinion. But as certain people have said in this forum, things like JW's have nutcases, are a 'cult', have pedophiles, and 'reformed' violent offenders, I just have one thing to say. JW's teach only what is in God's word the Bible. Nothing they come to your door with is based on opinion of any kind. The Bible teaches things such as how to show love to one another, forgiveness, to not be spiteful or hurtful in things you say or do. JW's do more than their fair share in the community by being among the first to arrive on scene at major disasters such as 9/11, and Katrina. They do this out of love from the heart and because it is God's will. So when you say 'prove it', please take your own advice and base what you say on actual fact, not on opinion that comes merely from hatred because of something you heard.
During 9-11, they locked themselves in their headquarters building and wouldn't help anyone coming across the Brooklyn Bridge.
The neighborhood will be filled with cars and traffic, noise, and mentally ill persons and pedophiles, since JWs hide both until it's too late.
JWs do not volunteer in the community, nor are they charitable with their funds. It all goes to "Mother" who uses the money to pay out settlements to victims of the pedophiles they hide and protect.
JWs are a cult. Don't let *anyone* tell you any different!
