They will be your family and best friends- until you are disfellowshipped( kicked out of there cult). They will then ignore you and see you as non existent. I call that hypocrisy because they are not really your family and friends.

It is a fantasy that the WBTS promotes, that JWs have a lesser crime rate than any other population.
They have not one single statistic to back up this lie, which proves their crime rate is higher than the norm.

JW's are not what they appear to be. They may be quiet and sweet but they are relentless Religious fanatics.
They should keep their hokus pokus to them selves and quit peddling it at our front doors.

Hey Life ~

You are so, so wrong. Because you have gone through and judged all the people that don't agree with you harshly, I would not trust your faith. You are so typical of a JW or any other "thumper". You have no proof, yet anyone that questions your blind faith is judged harshly or just plain ostrasized completely. What a joke. I would agree with most of the people posting, go ahead, stay at the convention center. Just as long as you are not invading my space my knocking on my door trying to sell me your religion.

every single one of you bashing Jehova's Witnesses are the biggest airheads and ignorants.

i am not a witnesses. but i do know that they are peaceful people.

all of you go about your business and let people live the way they feel is right.

your own insecurities that you have of your own religion shows by your bashing of the Jehova's Witnesses.

i prefer Jehova's Witnesses over the religions that support the following:

Child Molesters, abortions, gay ministers, sexual misconduct, violence, and many many more.

all of you are hippocrates.

The ONLY reason these lost souls knock on your door is to make you one of their free door-to-door salesman so you can purchase their literature (no names who wrote the articles) AT YOUR OWN COST to keep a Brooklyn Corporation wealthy loaded with YOUR billions of dollars. JW's only want to use you and they hope you buy into their ideas so they can control you. It's disgusting, very fraudulent, and it is NOT at all about God.

People who are going through a misery in their lives (divorce, death of a loved one, etc.) are most vulerable to falling for the lied in a made up religion invented by Charles Taze Russell back in the 1800's who was sold "miracle wheat" that was, you guessed it, fraudulent.

This fake religion breaks up families once one is disfellowshipped something that's truly lacking the genuine love of Christ.

If you want to make this Brooklyn corporation go out of businss simply DO NOT accept any literature from the door-to-door lost souls and the entire institution will collapse.

After reading Watchtower and Awake I wonder if anyone's awake at the watchtower.

"This convention is design to show that, despite what is taking place today, one can remain close to God and the benefits are outstanding."
What's wrong with this statement?

I'm an X-JW, was forcefully raised in it. Was a regular door knocker. And, yes it is true, they will not have anything to do with you once you are disfellowshipped. My father, Uncles, and Grandfather were or still are Elders in the "Congregation" and I can tell you stories of the hidden BS going on within the church. They are very 2 faced individuals that contradict themselves. "Only God can Judge" as the Bible states, but when it really comes down to it they judge you and will not have anything to do with you if you do not anything to do with their beliefs. It is sad that your own family is that heartless. It is a cult. It was hard to get away from, they will track you down and try to talk you back into the church and repent your sins.

So, I say sure come on in for your JW Conventions, it brings the city revenue, but thats all you are welcomed here for.

And don't worry people they don't come knocking at your door while they are here for their Conventions, they are only here for the Convention. If you get a knock on the door, it will only be from the local JW's.

Serena Williams is a Jehovah's Witness. At last year's US Open she screamed at a lineswoman (about half her size) that she was going to "shove this f*@#ing ball down your f*@#ing throat." Didn't seem very Christian to me.
