When does any human being have the right to kill another human being in the name of religion?

Because that is precisely what parents do when they refuse to allow a blood transfusion to be administered to their child when it is a matter of life and death that they have one.

The Jehovah's Witnesses do this child sacrifice based on their own personal opinion of the opinion of others who claim to have infer this from scriptures read and interpreted as this is what the bible says.

They foolishly believe that this gives them points with a god who will destroy them at Armageddon if they don't.

This has got to be the most cowardly and despicable act a parent can do. To sacrifice an innocent child to save their own skin!

As a society we have a moral obligation to protect our youth from death at the hands of nutcase cults.

If there were an Aztec revival today and converts wanted to march their young virgin daughters up to the alter to have the priest cut their hearts out while they were still alive and offer them up to Quetzalcoatl would we stand by in the name of religious tolerance and allow a murder like this to happen?

Jehovah's witnesses are willing to die for obeying their God Jehovah, just as the early Christians and Jesus himself died for Almighty God Jehovah's will to be done on this earth. Matthew 6:9,10

The commandment Jehovah God gave Noah, not to eat blood or touch it, because all blood belongs to Jehovah, is the same as the commandment Jehovah God gave Adam in the garden, do not touch or eat the fruit of the one tree that belongs to me, you can eat from all the other trees.
Jehovah's witnesses prefer to obey God's word about blood, even if we have to die.
Genesis 2:16,17
Leviticus 7:26,27

Don't think the witnesses are killing their children, they know their children will be resurrected from the dead back to life to enjoy God's new world of peace and happiness, this world belongs to Satan and his children who hate Jehovah God and his children.
Matthew 10:39
John 5:28,29

"is the same commandment"

NOT EVEN CLOSE,

EVEN IF YOU ARE BIBLICALLY RIGHT ON NO BLOOD TRANFUSIONS(which I doubt) THE REPRECUSSIONS OF EATING FROM THE TREE AFFECTED 20 BILLION PEOPLE AS THE REPRECUSSIONS FROM NOAH ABSTAINING BLOOD,MODERN DAY BLOOD TRANSFUSIONS OR LACK THEREOFF ONLY AFFECTS THE IMMEDIATE FRIENDS AND FAMILY.

ADAM AND EVES DECISION (in theory) IS THE CAUSE FOR ALL THE SUFFERING IN THE WORLD SINCE THEY ATE FROM THE TREE.

YOU ARE COMPARING APPLES AND ORANGE.(no pun intended)

COME BACK WITH SOMETHING MORE LOGICAL.

Thank you for proving what a dangerous, lunatic cult the Jehovah's Witnesses are.
They kill their children to appease their leaders who call themselves "jehovah" as an act of supreme devotion, and could care less because those same leaders lie about some fictional fairyland.

Sick.
We as a society should be protecting our children better

Neither suicide nor murder is a right any religion can legally demand be respected of anyone. at least not here in the United States.

As a society we have a moral obligation to protect children from barbaric nutcase cults like this.

Religious tolerance should not extend to standing by and watching fanatics murder their children over a misunderstanding of the Hebrew Scriptures.

These Moloch worshipers are one sick bunch!

The hodgepodge cult of jehovah's witnesses produces a lot of molested children, and children with emotional problems.

Are you including abortion in this as well ???

Seems you want to strain out the gnat , for not many children die because of refusing blood transfusion in comparison with the murder of babies killed in the millions constantly by the state,

I believe the Jehovah witnesses have been protected from contacting the AIDS virus because of belief in
' abstaining from blood'

We heard the report of several babies dying due to contacting Aids through blood transfusions...and it goes on , all the time finding new things that cause death to people in having other peoples blood

Praise Jehovah that he protects us.

All this 'outrage' is just propagation of hate..against Gods Law on blood.

So you are saying that the murder of children that is required by the Jehovah's Witness cult, is justified because women have the right to make choices for their own bodies??

That makes absolutely no sense.

But thank you for admitting what the cult requires of parents IS to agree to murder their child when called upon to do so, in an act of loyalty to cult leaders.

So murdering children of Jehovah's Witnesses is okay now because of AIDS??
You are a true lunatic.
Many Jehovah's Witnesses abuse drugs and have unprotected homosexual sex, they get AIDS.
You are just spewing propaganda, and as usual you make no point and just prove what a full on idiot you truly are.
Like most Jehovah's witnesses you are an ignoramus

The watchtowers allowance of blood fractions negated any stance they had that the Bible teaches we are to abstain from a blood transfusion when our, or our families lives are at stake! They brought the number of people that take God's law on blood to mean in lieu of our lives to exactly zer0!
How can these Watchtower worshippers not see the hypocrisy and fallacy.

Unless the watchtower Corporation and its governing body find Jesus, they will never admit that the blood transfusion policy is wrong. They know they would be sued out of existence!

It is truly baffling how strong A spell the watchtower has over its followers! They read how Jesus constantly showed that easing human suffering trumped narrow readings of law! The Sabbath was God's law, yet the strict parameters the religious leaders put on this law actually was allowing them to harm people or not to care, to even criticize Jesus for healing someone of a life long illness! How callous and sad. Yet Jehovah's Witnesses can read account after a count of how Jesus shows that a man is not for the law but the law is for man to not see how the blood policy is completely anti law,anti scriptual and Anti Christ!

Well if we take count of the amount of children killed by blood transfusions little lamb, how many children is it okay to murder?

Has the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses exceeded this limit of how many children it is okay to murder?

Do you have a particular number in mind?

And if the organization of Jehovah's Witnesses have not exceeded this number, where is your proof that this is so?

And why do you bring up abortion?

Are you trying to justify your religion's crime of child sacrifice by seeking to diminish it's number of fatalities in comparison to other crimes against children?

When is life sacred to you little lamb?

When it goes door to door?

Jesus taught that every life is sacred. Your masters disagree.

Hypocritical Moloch worshiper!!

Pedophiles attack both girls and boys at the Kingdumb Hall with the full support of "the society" as long as they make sure two other "brothers" aren't observing and recording the attack.
This is one of the best child protection policies according to Anerin/Gareth.

This is not the same thing and you know it.

You cannot equate not taking a life saving procedure with other matters of faith and principle.

The fact is,

The Mosaic law covenant is called the old covenant because it is the past, on top of that the not eating the blood of an animal was not part of the ten commandments, however it was one of the laws that Moses had passed on to the Israelite nation, along with circumcision and other laws.

It does appear that quite a few of the nations considered the blood to be sacred and not just the Israelite nation.

Of course the Bible says that the mandate for the blood prohibition goes back to the time of Noah after the flood, but there is more involved here than that.

Now what the parents are in reality doing is sacrificing there child for a cause, a belief that God has forbidden all use of blood, except of course "blood fractions". Just being cynical here.

Now if someone donates his or her blood while that person is alive to save another persons life, is this wrong in God's sight?

What the Bible is talking about is the death of an animal, and that after the animal is killed, men can eat it's flesh, but the blood is either poured out onto the ground or used for sacrifice on the altar.

This only applies to animals, as humans are not suppose to kill and eat other humans, never mind draining out the blood onto the ground.

At that time there was no situation or technology that would have allowed for a blood transfusion.
On top of that you would have to make sure that you do have the right blood type match, otherwise a person would die anyway because that persons body would reject it.
They did not know about blood types back then.

If it is a case that the parent is concerned about the inherent dangers within the blood or the child's body rejecting the blood then this is a decision based on what medical procedure is best for the child and not just because of an ancient law on prohibition of blood.
