I think Ozzy has a point here. It has been observed that atheism's best allies are the religions themselves as they attack each other as much as atheism does. Though it's true they will pick on the weaker factions rather than the Big Ones, who could cause trouble.

But, while the observation has merit, it is irrelevant. Bias may explain why the attack is untrue - if it is untrue. If it is true, bias is irrelevant - which is why accusing atheists of bias in irrelevant, even if we are biased - if what we say is true.

IMO Atheism does not attack religion. It is a way of life. I am an Atheist and I don't "attack " religion. Not in a general sense. I don't believe in any religion and that is for me. I don't "attack " the JWs. but being one for 40 years gives me an insight that only someone who was a JW for years could share. You can not in any way say you know about a religion because you know someone at work who is one and they were nice. This is just stupid to think anyone could.



I show the facts of what the JWs teach, believe and do. Their history and how they have predicted the end of the world since 1874 and been proven wrong every time. The facts they hate Gay life styles and actively preach intolerance against their life style. Just look at their videos.

The Watchtower demanding records being destroyed because Satan is using them to come after God's organization.

It would be funny if it wasn't so damn sad.

Yeah, how sad that they have to get rid of evidence of what actually took place because it would incriminate them? One would think God's true organization would be found blameless by a clear accounting of the facts.

One brother told the truth and it costs the organization several hundred thousand dollars. Can't keep having that happen.

Once in you get the more hard core message of don't associate with unbelievers, cut off family that are unbelievers and or are against the religion, no holidays, voting, blood in medical needs, 5 meetings a week plus personal study, not going to the police when there is a crime committed by a fellow brother, threats of shunning if you question the belief that they are the only true religion on earth, going to another church, watching R movies, celebrating a birth day, smoking, having a beard, getting a divorce, women not being in subjection to men, and the list goes on and on.


You are in error on some matters you posted. God initiated disfellowshipping. In the OT it was being stoned to death for the unrepentant, is that what you would choose for you or a family member? I know for sure in some matters including paedophiles, parents are counciled that they can go to the police.
Yes the good news of the kingdom, started by Jesus(Luke 10) house to house(Acts 20:20--It does not stop until the end. ( Matt 24:14)
Satan is in control of much of this system. Jesus even taught that satan ruled this system of things.
Many call the JW,s a cult. That's because they do not know Gods view--Mark 3:24-26) a house divided( 34,000 trinity religions) will not stand. They fail this true mark 100%--1Corinthians 1:10) unity of thought, no division. Yet 2 billion blindly listen to them. Not all is as appears in a satan ruled system.

Most normal, rational people would choose not be to a religious nutball who disowns their family members for not believing their specific brand of religion....

The fact that anyone is stupid enough that they would have to be counseled (not counciled) to go to the police if one of their members was a pedo is just pathetic and sad. It also shows just how damaged and ignorant people of the JW's faith are.

Which one of your family members has offered eternal life to you? Which one created all things so that you could enjoy life with many varieties? We owe God-100%. So do our family members. Lots wife was turned to salt in an instant. Lot stood for God.

Along with 1Corinthians 6"9-11,, Galations 5:19-21 and false god worship and partaking off the table of demons= 99% on earth. 0 have the right to pass judgement.
