Propaganda:: Jehovahs Witness by Velica Propaganda:: Jehovahs Witness by Velica
::This deviation is part of the Propaganda series[link] ::

Todays society is on the verge of diabolic immorality: abortion, euthanasia, socialism, woman's suffrage, independence of african and asian colonies, marmite, etc.

But nothing threats human decency as much as blood transfusions! The good book is very clear about this: "Thou shall not drink the blood of other people or dress as a beaver during poker nights".

If you want to be on the good side refuse blood transfusions. God will thank you.

The Jehovah's Witnesses

I used to be one of Jehovah's Witnesses, but thankfully, my parents saw the flaws in their beliefs and took me and my sisters out of the religion.

Looking back, a lot of the beliefs were incredibly strict and was only there to instill fear. I mean, I was forbidden from watching Digimon at one point, and my parents would often tell me that "Bad shows Demons would possess the TV" Yeaaaah.

That and I really hate how their pessimistic view on the outside world. They might as well have just said. "If you're not a witness, then you're automatically a spawn of Satan."

Deny the advancements of medical science and cures for diseases like HIV/Aids.
PeTA and the Witnesses would be such good neighbors.

If you get a blood transfusion, you risk getting AIDs and other potentially deadly diseases. Blood is a symbol of life so we like to keep our blood in our bodies and not someone elses

If you lost a lot of blood (lets say if you were badly cut) the transfused blood will help you maintain your circulation and avoid your organs dying. This way you survive and eventually produce blood that will replace the transfusion.

Are JWs also against bone marrow transplant?

I can tell you
A)that thier religion is the only"truth"
B)that if you refuse to accept THIER biblical interpretations,or if you have another faith and are loyal to it thier "Jehovah"intends to destroy you
C)that independent thought,action or speech is evil,especially if it disagrees with thier absurd notions
D)that no matter what idiot spin they put on any particular biblical passage it is to be believed..Thier spin on the blood issue conviently forgets that it was written at a time when some religions actually did use the blood of slain enemies in thier ceremonies
...and these are just a few of the zany,absurd and,in the case of blood transfusions DANGEROUS ideas that they call religion....

I can tell you
A)Our religion is the Truth

B)If he intends to destroy those who don't follow him, why are you still here?

C)We do not have absurd notions. Talk to any Witness and our speech is clean and respects Jehovah and his creation. There is not one Witness who curses, defaces his/her body with piercings (other than in the ears), tattoos, or implants. There is only evil in worshiping Satan the Devil.

D)We do not put any spin on Biblical writings. If you look at the cover of our Bible, it reads, "New World TRANSLATION of The Holy Scriptures." We never use blood in our worship to Jehovah. The only blood Witnesses ever used, was back when the Mosaic Law was still in effect.

Look up the benefits to bloodless surgery and any other medical procedures and any doctor will tell you bloodless is better than any other type.


Check your facts before you go and dis other peoples beliefs and/or likes. I'm sure you wouldn't like it if I made fun of your religion, way of life, beliefs, or anything you put your heart into. I'm asking you to please be nice to us Witnesses. We are only trying to help. May Jehovah not judge you as harshly as you judge others. Have a nice day :)

Oh but I HAVE checked my facts,and they contradict your fantasies...I'll tell you what sport;I will be more than happy to post links to more than a thousand sites,many of which are from highly regarded teaching universities indicating the successrate and medical necessities of blood-transfusions..also links from highly regarded medical experts refuting your absurd notions..Aside from your bible and the few JW doctors can YOU do the same?If so let's get it on..I know that I'm ready...
Certainly youSPIN biblical texts...Jehovah isn't even the name God Himself used to identify himself to Moses"I AM THAT I AM"is the name that God chose..You people didn't even have a translation of your own in the 1930s when you"chose" to use that name..Must I post your own recent watchtower article on this matter.
As far as why I am still here come on,are you THAT DENSE?You teach this stuff,not me..I'm"still here"because what you teach is wrong..You don't have to be a brain surgeon to figure that one out...
As for your"absurd notions"your entire religion depends upon a complete lack of independent thinking..How about I give you an example of your"absurd"notions
Back in the late 1920s when"judge"Rutherford was the head of your religion a full page ad from your religion began to appear in your publications under the headline"Millions alive today need never have to die"..In his convention talk introducing this ABSURD NOTION your Rutherford explained that the "generation that came of age"prior to 1914 contained these fortunate ones who would "never have to die"and that that generation would not"pass away"before the end of the world came and your 1000 year kingdom came into being..The jude in explaining this ABSURD NOTION said that he was not talking about people born in 1914 but those with"the maturity"to"understand"events,which ranged anywhere from between 10 and 14 by his reckoning..now someone who was between 10 and 14 in 1914 would be over 120 years of age today..Do YOU know of anyone that age?No,you don't...but at this convention your people accepted this as fact,and even into the 1980s continued to teach it,always referencing the bible to"prove"it..Gee guy,since it DID NOT happen as Rutherford said,and as your people taught for decades that it would happen like Rutherford said it qualifies as an"absurd notion"to me..
Oh yeah,I HAVE THE WATCHTOWER YEARBOOK IN WHICH THIS IS RECORED,so if you dispute it I can always post the pages from your own magazine to prove it...and this is only one ABSURD NOTION..There are hundreds of others..
Your people today try to distance themselves from this and other ABSURD NOTIONS by claiming that the"light"in"the tunnel"grows"brighter"as we alledgedly "draw closer to the end",but that is a face saving device...So please,don't think that you are dealing with someone who has not read a lot of your twaddle both past and present..also do not think that because you have "explainations"for your notions that they are therefore the ONLY explainations...

In many medical procedures, it is much safer to go bloodless. Ask any surgical doctor/nurse

The Witness teaching that the soul dies with the body and rots in the grave, is totally unacceptable to me. I expect more of my soul, my consciousness than to just go pffft at death and need to be recreated at some vaguely set date in the future.

To quote a Witness book,"at resurrection time, Jehovah will create an appropiate body and then put in the memories of the original person." Russell, the founder, even stated that God will not get any data on re-creating the person mixed up with anybody else's. In other words, Jehovah will make a COPY of you and reward or punish that for your service or sins. "A fake salvation via a fake resurrection for a fake Jesus" (the Witnesses say that Jesus' body was not raised, but was disposed of, while a brand-new SPIRIT with Jesus' memories and personality was created).

Your examples of "diabolical immorality" segue to the absurd and nonsense ! Marmite ? A beaver costume ?

I also noted your take on WWII propaganda posters.

Of course, the bible. The biggest source of logical facts in the world. What was I thinking.

But don't get me wrong, I fully support the right of JWs to reject blood transfusions. Its natural selection on the making!
