The management and editors at the DESERET NEWS decided to celebrate Independence Day by sticking up their MIDDLE FINGERS to Veterans and other patriotic Americans by going out of their way to research and publish a FREE ADVERTISEMENT for the ANTI-AMERICAN WatchTower Cult, which is holding a Convention this weekend at the Dee Events Center in Ogden -- thanks to cooperative management there who have hosted the anti-American WatchTower Cult Conventions for years.

DESERET NEWS staffers WHITNEY EVANS and KRISTIN MURPHY were sent out by DESERET NEWS management to accompany a group of Jehovah's Witness missionaries as they perform their door-to-door solicitations.

The DESERET NEWS then published what is nothing less than a compilation of half-truths and falsehoods promoting the beliefs and works of the anti-American WATCHTOWER CULT. For example, the JWs have never "passed out Bibles". They have always SOLD Bibles and most of their other literature. Additionally, this half-truth article starts the history of the WatchTower organization in 1884 so that it does not have to explain why the FIRST PRESIDENT of the WatchTower Society, who served from 1881-1884, rejected the religion due to its falsehoods. All other assertions made by the interviewed JWs are published unchallenged by the DESERET NEWS.

A current LDS member, Jerry Williams, owner of Ace Vacuum World, in Midvale, is even quoted stating: "Jehovah's Witnesses, they inspire me. They are out and about doing God's work, God's will."

Here are just some of the ANTI-AMERICAN beliefs and practices of the DESERET NEWS promoted 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 putting into actual practice the ANTI-AMERICAN teachings and beliefs of the WATCHTOWER CULT who were NOT interviewed by WHITNEY EVANS and KRISTIN MURPHY:

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". Since 2012, Hawkins has reportedly forbade one other patriotic celebration.

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 in Texas 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".
