But based on what we hear, the JWs can't even take care of the JWs in Haiti.

There's a bunch of JWs huddled in a Kingdumb Hall, the JWs can't take care of them.

I wouldn't worry too much, the Catholics will take care of them.

The one truly 100% legitimate organization that is helping in Haiti is Jehovah's Witnesses.

Not one person in the organization receives a salary for their work. Modest expenses of workers are covered, including the most prominent leaders, but not even a small salary is paid.

There is no cheating or deceit in handling funds donated to this organization. None will be siphoned off for anyone's personal benefit.

The Jehovah's Witnesses are NOT listed as a legitimate organization.

BTW, why are they not taking care of the "huddled masses" in the Kingdumb Halls who are begging for help?

No worry, I'm sure Catholic Relief Services will take good care of them.

I was reading in the newspaper today about some of the rescue efforts being carried out by various groups in Haiti.

They mentioned the Red Cross, a civilian search and rescue team from Virginia, the Army, Navy and Marines, a Methodist disaster relief organization, and the Catholic relief organizations. No mention of JWs, who, according to the majority of JW posters here are ALWAYS the FIRST ones to arrive and are the most organized, so officials turn to THEM to carry out relief operations.

Could this be empty boasting on their parts? Heaven forbid that JWs should be discovered to be prideful boasters with no facts to back up their claims!

Maybe we could use NR and EE as Search Dogs?

That is...if they're not too old.

When disaster strikes I know exactly what will happen in our area. I know that I will be located and cared for as quickly as humanly possible. I will not be alone or isolated. Jehovah, through his earthly organization, has set up an outstanding plan and network to get help to his people. We have been instructed and informed about how to prepare and survive, and we have shepherds who will be looking for us and helping us because they love us.

How about you?

God does not work with or through the non-Christian, cult of the Jehovah's Witnesses.

Do you really believe everything the cult tells you?

Then you are controlled by Satan and you will be just like those who are huddled in a Jehovah's Witness Kingdumb Hall...waiting for nothing.

But don't worry, I am sure the Catholics will stop by and help the cult and it's followers.

I wonder what those 170 patients would feel about the hatred you display for those kind people who are *actually* helping victims of this disaster?

It was to one of the charitries mentioned I donated and know of this group and their work over the years .Many of those groups are and have been on the ground since the earthquake happened thank God people all over the world are sending in dollars so that food , water , medicine and first aid supplies can be bought and distributed and they are helping anyone regardless of their religion or lack of one , if your in need of help they help you as it should be our prayer should be that all who are in need get help and that no more die for lack of medical care or food and water .If there are JW needing help hopefully someone will find them and help them even if they are not doing the same for others , but maybe they are we knows .You posted some wonderful charities hopefully people will send in a couple dollars if that is all they can spare .

Your fellow cult members have been bragging about how much help your organization has provided and when the truth is finally known about just how littlev they have done you whine and moan.

Get a grip on reality, man.

Nobody is saying that JWs do not do a good job. The point is that so do many,many others.
These others do not upload videos onto youtube to brag about how they care for their own.
Most organisations in Haiti wouldn't dream of looking after certain people first. They are there to help everyone. It should be exactly the same among witnesses. There should not be reports about how aid has gone to witnesses. It truly is sickening.

Hey RHW,
Did they mention that Palm Beach/Broward/Dade county fire rescue teams that are there?
No?
Oh... I suppose that they must NOT really be there then.
They can ONLY be helping if they are mentioned by name.
RHW, you and I both know that the Witnesses are doing whatever they can.
True, other groups are MUCH better prepared and qualified to do the work that is being done there at this moment but, the Witness help where they can.
