..... It shouldn't make any difference what belief system a person belongs to, or not belongs to; crimes should be prevented if possible.
..... People who say that they are "not of the world" keep being in the world, and cannot be believed. See Acts 2 and Acts 4 for what it means to live in a separate community, an artificial "family", in which they all shared their property and lived without money (that's why outsiders called members "The Poor") similarly as there was a time when none of us had, nor needed, money while we were children.

Yeah, they arent of the world but they do accept all goverment free programs they can get.Its like when the Gb said that the U.N. was the evil harlot but was involved with them for 10 years behind the jw's backs.

JW's as an Org...practice what they preach. This is just one example of the kind of things they really stand for. They didn't have to call the authorities, but knowing what they saw to be a wrong act...they did.

Most people in most religions practice what they preach. The JWs did the right thing, but so would others have done the exact same thing.

This says nothing about the JW organization as a whole, but it does show that individual JWs often do the right thing.

What I also find interesting, Nomi, is that, when wrongdoings by JWs are pointed out, you are quick to assert that those JWs who do wrong do NOT reflect the JW organization. Yet, when individual JWs do something kind and decent, you do just the opposite and claim that THOSE JWs ARE representative of the entire organization.

Double standards, Nomi.

How nice that Jehovah's Witnesses continue to endanger the lives of innocent children by dragging them onto the property of potentially dangerous householders.
Disgusting.

The Truth of the matter is...Jehovah's Witnesses are the best people on earth. The Best of what this system has.

Quite comical. JWs are just like any other group of people on the face of the earth...some good...some bad, but hardly the "best" people on earth.

Major difference....we are known as a group for doing good things, not bad.

Can you name any other religious group that is "known" for doing "bad things"? Why do you think that JWs are special in this regard?
