I've heard of him. Where some of the things he says I agree with, I think he had his own special 'demon' with his mother.

All religions are 'cults' when you preach the religion and not the person of Christ.

Tell me little lamb did you buy the overlapping generation talk how do you stay after hearing that bs..sorry but I just saw it on youtube and felt sick to my stomach. This means they have another what 70 years to go until new light. All religons preach the end is comming but not one tries to use the generation thing to instill fear of leaving. That talk I just heard sounded like a stay or else talk. I never really put much stalk in the whole 1975 so called aposates that hung out at the assemblys when I was a kid. Now I'm thinking they got the same enlightenment I just had watching the crap....pass by them in 1975 all the mags from the 1980 are full of this generation will not die,,no where in the bible does it say overlapping generations.

The Jehovah's Witnesses are a cult, that is for sure.
And all children of cults have high rates of abuse, especially sexual abuse.

The following beliefs should be considered cult constructs, he says.

• Certainty that the world will end in one’s lifetime: This is a crucial pill to swallow for a subsequent list of cult beliefs, which keep followers in a perpetual state of fear. If only one holds true enough to a strict set of rules – like avoiding pledges of allegiance at school, for example – then they may be spared at Armageddon.

• Social manipulation: For Jehovah’s Witnesses who are not observant of all rules, ostracism and shunning is used. How to handle someone who questions policy? Make sure their family ignores them!

• Cripple half of the members (women): For Jehovah’s Witnesses, women are seen as creatures trapped somewhere between men and animals in God’s hierarchy. No woman can have a position of authority, which means it's men only for preaching, teaching and praying. If there’s an official meeting and a woman prays she must cover her head out of respect for the angels who might be there.

• Scorning education: Who needs advanced learning when the world is sure to end in a few short years? Kelly’s sister, Marilyn, had very little education, so when she was finally able to leave home, she had few coping skills. She ultimately met an abusive third husband, who later murdered her.

• Sexually repressive: Jehovah’s Witnesses are thoroughly indoctrinated in how to harness the power of the sex drive to please God. It’s obsessive compulsive when it comes to creating rules about sexual do's and don’ts, from masturbation to the role of women; from conception to sexual pleasure. Sex before marriage is an onerous crime, punishable by shunning and death at Armageddon.

Any religion practicing the following is violating God's law and you should get while you can.
Idol worship like the cross.
Trinity unbiblical and pagan in origin.
Immortal soul, unbiblical and pagan in origin.
Christmas unbiblical and pagan in origin.
Need I go on as this alone cover 95% of alleged Christian religions!!

Maybe you are a cult, Aurora. Especially since you have such an obession with sex.

Advice for all faithful and sincere Jehovahs Witnesses from your kind and loving Governing Body:

The nurturing Moon and lively Mercury join forces in your eleventh house of friends and associates, making this a wonderful day for social activity. Lunch with someone special will be uplifting and energizing, even if he or she needs your shoulder to cry on. Everything seems easier when it is shared, so share both your joys and your sorrows today.
