Kelly grew up in a Jehovah's Witness household. And he says ensuing family disharmony and the cultish legacy contributed to his sister's murder. He also says 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.

This is so very true and sad.
Why any woman would join or stay in the Jehovah's Witness cult is just proof positive of the astronomical rate of mental/emotional illness in Jehovah's Witnesses

Nothing else we haven't heard before.
Sisters are given honor within the family unit and in the congregation. Women do preach. A good deal of the preaching work is done by the sisters, in fact.
Where did he lie dickhead? Your in a cult and you should be ashamed and feel embarrassed of your ignorance and stupidity, you most probably don't know much about your own religion, but thats how cults run, good luck

There is something far more serious with this person..in pertaining to understanding Jehovah and his teachings.No one forces anyone to join because it comes from the heart.Animals and such is far from it.Its either this person suffers from a chemical imbalance /mental issue or she just out there to ruin his precious name@@@@@@@@@@

Liar.
Children of Jehovah's Witnesses are FORCED.
They can make the "choice" to be baptized to the WBTS, but not to attend a birthday party, or say the Pledge of Allegiance

It is always the person who is alienated from God, that knows all about Jehovah's witnesses, and is first to spout his lies as to what is true Christian conduct.

Anyone who believes or even listens to that liar would never get out of the darkness they share.
Matthew 6:22,23

If you want to know the truth, about God, life and Jehovah's witnesses talk to a witness, not some bigot hater of the truth. The Bible gives the authority to witness parents to raise their own children, to become mature true Christian men and women.

don't be more smart as you are,

nobody gave you authrority to send advices to poeple whom you doesn't know

I know more about JW as they are as you have any idea

I also know His Word Bible past 35 years nourishing me like day food

keep your advises to your stupid low maturity,
anfd threats you can threat people from door to door if you are JW

humble true JW doesn't have wicked mouth like yours,

read Bible,maybe you start understand that without of Gad grace you are just lost unsaved wicked creature full of sins
wages for sin is death Rom 6;23.....and this passage also is against you

A person does alienate themselves from God, but they do not do it by leaving a religion or organization. Those things are NOT GOD. This is something that your GB aka F&DS teaches that is not biblical. Have you ever once thought that maybe, just maybe that scripture is speaking of those who have lied over and over to their members and even hid things from them?
If you want the truth, you do not ask any religion or organization for it, YOU ASK THE LORD FOR IT. Then you go to the bible to find it.
I have not seen to many bigot haters on here of anyone but those who no longer allow their beliefs to be dictated by a group of men who claim to be God mouthpiece. Of course there are those who come here just to cause trouble and that is on both sides, the true, real haters are those who call themselves JWs. Open your eyes to the truth of the Lord and find love, peace, and true happiness.

Men are honored. Women are taught to keep their place.
And how many female elders do you know?
You people are Paulists, not Christians!
Hey muffin boy,it maybe in your own bible they could become elders. But not by divine authority.

When one has a problem they take that to the elders, when one gets no understanding from the elders they are told to wait on Jehovah, do you have a problem with that, Christ waited on Jehovah to bring down the temple he still went to the temple even though he disagreed with some of what was being taught, do you have a problem with that.
Do you have a scripture to support this?.Christ waited on Jehovah to bring down the temple he still went to the temple even though he disagreed with some of what was being taught, do you have a problem with that.

Being put out of the family of Jehovah God or leaving it because you cannot be obedient to the instructions necessary for true Christians, is fulfillment of prophecy from Jesus.

(Matthew 13:41-43) 41 The Son of man will send forth his angels, and they will collect out from his kingdom all things that cause stumbling and persons who are doing lawlessness, 42 and they will pitch them into the fiery furnace. There is where [their] weeping and the gnashing of [their] teeth will be. 43 At that time the righteous ones will shine as brightly as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let him that has ears listen.

Being put out of a religion, is not being put out of Jehovah's Family. Being obedient to a religion, or organization's man made rules, has nothing to do with being obedient to Jehovah and JESUS laws and rules of the Bible. In your religion, your GB aka F&DS has warned you against coming to forums like this. You must not really think they know what they are speaking of,because here you are going against their warnings. Aren't they suppose to speak for Jehovah and what he knows is best for you? Then please explain, why do you come here? Just because you don't use our comments in your comments, does not mean you are not conversing with us.

Funny that you cannot see that YOUR GB aka F&DS are guilty of the things mentioned in that scripture. They have caused stumbling, and they have done lawlessness as well. Notice the last line, it says LISTEN, why cant you do that?
And just what fiery furnace will they be doing this weeping and gnashing of teeth in?
Take off the blinders, read the TRUE words that are easily found to prove that the GB aka F&DS are guilty of wrong. Sure you will find places that are just out to attack them, but the true words are out there as well. Ask any Elder about them, you will be told lies to cover up the truth, and you will be told not to ever mention it to anyone else or bring it up again without consequences. The truth is being hidden from you, and all the other 7 million who keep their heads buried in the sand.

Not at all.
It is all about your cult leaders excersizing complete control
A common denominator of cults, not of Jesus' teachings or Christianity.
A "fulfillment of prophecy from Jesus"??? What a joke!!
