I question ..why it is that these people.. who were given jobs quit... The object was to not go in to service where they would be called on to kill ... I think they should just spend..jail time.. Being as how.. once they have obtained their (So called goal ) they whine about that to..
OR maybe they need to spend the whole stint.. Cleaning up streets.. with a broom... It would serve a purpose.. The country would look better ..and they would not be so much a burden on the tax payers..

.
. you are correct ..I have not been to other countries.. The US could stand a good cleaning.. There are few places that people have not thrown their refuge.. And that ..is what came to mind.. When I was thinking about those that expect to not only ..not serve the government..that God has allowed to be in place.. By claiming neutrality.. OKAY! then you will serve the time.. doing something productive.. Here..in the US..at the moment.. Serving..is voluntary..( opps!.. until you sign up) I know that is not the same ..everywhere..

It was the European Court of Human Rights that fought for these conscientious objectors. They said doing alternative service was still under military control and unacceptable, and these jw's were awarded money for the time they spent in jail. I don't know Armenia law but it sounds like they were more concerned about their civil rights. Notice that the wtbts did nothing! Times are changing for the good. I only wish the wtbts would get more involved about the civil rights and fight for co's around the world!In the US, ministers are exempt from military duty,and alternative service,but sorry to say the wtbts won't fight for the rights of our brothers.
