In the June 29, 2012 TRIBUNE-DEMOCRAT, reporter DAVE SUTOR authors yet another article PRAISING and PROMOTING the ANTI-AMERICAN WATCHTOWER CULT for again choosing Johnstown as its regional Convention headquarters. Staff photographer JOHN RUCOSKY also provides multiple photographs for the article.

DAVE SUTOR quotes City Manager KRISTEN DENNE and City Finance Director, CARLOS GUNBY both praising the anti-American WATCHTOWER CULT Conventions. KRISTEN DENNE proffered high praise for the Jehovah's Witnesses, stating, "I consider them all honorary citizens."

LISA RAGER, Executive Director of the Greater Johnstown/Cambria County Convention & Visitors Bureau provides sound-bite quotes to DAVE SUTOR also praising these ANTI-AMERICAN CULT Conventions.

TOM GRENELL, General Manager of WAR MEMORIAL ARENA, which is named to honor Johnstown's military veterans, also is quoted by DAVE SUTOR praising the JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES, who REFUSE to serve in America's military.

JOSH GIBSON, owner of the downtown Johnstown SUBWAY is also quoted praising the WATCHTOWER CULT.

MELISSA RADOVANIC, Sales and Marketing Director for HOLIDAY INNS, is also quoted praising the WATCHTOWER CULT.

In the mid 1930s, the Watch Tower Society started forbidding Jehovah's Witnesses to salute the American Flag, or recite the Pledge Of Allegiance, or stand for the playing of the National Anthem, or engage in any other patriotic activity.

Jehovah's Witnesses were taught to tell the news media, courts, and other outsiders that the American Flag is a false idol, and doing any of the aforementioned activities is performing "worship" to a false idol. This "public relations" reasoning is actually the LEAST of all the reasons that Jehovah's Witnesses refuse to engage in any patriotic or political activities. This secondary, ancillary reasoning was developed because the WatchTower Society did not dare to have its Jehovah's Witness members running around repeating for the news media and courtroom judges the PRIMARY doctrine on this subject, which would outrage the American public.

What Jehovah's Witnesses intentionally do NOT publically explain to non-JWs is that the Watch Tower CULT teaches Jehovah's Witnesses that the Government of the United States is governing ILLEGITIMATELY.

The WatchTower Cult teaches that the Government of the United States is under the control of Satan the Devil as his partner in Satan's universal rebellion against GOD. The Watch Tower Society teaches that GOD granted humans the authority to rule the earth only for a period of 2520 years -- starting in 607 B.C. and ending in October, 1914 A.D. The Watch Tower Society teaches that in October, 1914, the authority to rule the earth reverted back to GOD, and that He then formed a heavenly government to rule the earth.

The WatchTower Cult teaches that in 1919 that Jesus Christ selected the WATCHTOWER CULT as his sole earthly representative of that heavenly government.

The WatchTower Cult teaches that the Government of the United States (as well as all other governments), is its' enemy, because it has failed to surrender governmental power that rightfully belongs to the Watch Tower Society.

These are the ACTUAL reasons that the WatchTower Cult forbids its Jehovah's Witness members to support the government of the United States -- no voting, no holding political office, no professing citizen loyalty via the Pledge of Allegiance or standing for the National Anthem, no joining the military to protect the United States, etc.

The WatchTower Cult teaches that Armageddon will occur "soon", and at the Battle of Armageddon, that Jesus Christ and his heavenly armies will destroy the armies and governments of the United States, and of all other countries -- including all people who did not convert to the Jehovah's Witnesses.

Jehovah's Witnesses look forward to the day when they will rule the planet.

Here are some recent examples of REAL WORLD Jehovah's Witnesses actually practicing the teachings and beliefs of the WATCHTOWER CULT:

Interested Readers should google the name "GRETA HAWKINS" -- to read June 2012 newspaper articles about a Jehovah's Witness public elementary school Principal who just recently refused to allow her students to sing Lee Greenwood's "GOD BLESS THE USA" at a recent graduation ceremony. Hawkins has also attempted to do away with her school's daily custom of reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing "AMERICA THE BEAUTIFUL".

Interested Readers also should google the name "LEROY McKELVEY" -- to read newspaper articles about a "devout Jehovah's Witness" who tased a U.S. Marine and others at a September 2011 Jets-Cowboys football game attended by past President George W. Bush and other public officials present to honor the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

Interested Readers should google the phrase "JW Manager entered the apartment without permission and took down the Flag" to read about a Jehovah's Witness apartment building Manager who refused to allow tenants to display the American Flag after 9-11.

To read about all of the above on one single webpage, Google the names "Armando Perez", "Tyler Templeton", and "Bruce Cooke" -- ALL IN THE SAME SEARCH -- to read about a dozen or so similar incidents involving "Jehovah's Witnesses".

I have been one of Jehovah's witnesses all my life, and none of you know what your talking about. We are not a cult, we do not abuse the elderly or our children. You are all extremely uneducated about our beliefs because you choose to believe the lies people spread about us. You believe what you want to believe If you want to know the truth about our beliefs and why we believe them then go to . All these names in this post about Greta Hawkins and this Leroy guy are untrue. Made up stories. TOTALLY made up. you will all find out when Jehovah's day draws near!

Jennifer, YOU are an IDIOT. Every one of those NEWS STORIES are absolutely true. IF you had taken the time to google them, you would have found that those were ASSOCIATED PRESS news stories that appeared in newspapers and on TV all across the United States.
