All they want is to be to able preach from door to door carrying Christs message. They rightfully see it as their God given commission.
Whoever doesn't want to hear it simply doesn't have too. Jw's will just go right on to the next one.
One never ever heard of a JW causing problems. Nor do they get themselves involved in politics. They look to God's kingdom to solve mankinds dilemmas.
A particular poster whom is proving himself to be more and more unbalanced with each passing day is trying to equate fundamentalism with Jw's. Ludicrous. It couldn't be further from the truth...
"....Christian radicalism has had its roots in the Bible.... those committed to violence,...have appealed to the Bible, albeit using different hermeneutical strategies. We cannot understand Christian (radicalism) without recognising the interweaving of destructive fanaticism.... and, what is more, the knee-jerk reaction to radicalism, of whatever hue...[8]

Extremists can be identified once the Bible, Quran, or whatever Holy Book these extremists worship is mentioned or even questioned.
