You see, a change of subject.

We don't have a conversation at all.

I'll go and chase the wind, I'll have more luck.

I am through. I just wish JWs were through destroying people's lives, families, and happiness!

Yes, the nastiest thing that JWs practice, shunning....I have seen first hand a family totally destroyed by this. One mother was caught smoking and her husband and kids treated her as if she were dead. She couldn't deal with it and disappeared shortly after. How can anyone respect shunning, or those that defend it?.....I know I can't.

>Now you are using an ad hominen fallacy. How about does it make you comfortable the bloody history Christian religions have and still they things they do in the name of Christ?

You're using a red herring fallacy as well as a really bad strawman.

>Also, does it bother you that whatever Christian religion also has dangerous sex offenders?

It would bother me if ANY sex offender went to anybody's house with minimal supervision, religion/political beliefs/etc be damned.

>Also, it interesting a comment you make. Are sex offenders not entitled to forgiveness?

Yeah, but homeowners are also entitled to a right to know if a person with a particularly dangerous past like a sex offender is at their door.

>Did Jesus forgive sinners and you are not using ad hominens on Jehovah's Witnesses? To me that is a punch below the belt that shows your disagreement on what they believe. Not a very Christian move in this case.

I'm not Christian. I'm a Deist. To me, religion's simply mankind's flawed and imperfect study to figure out god. Christianity to me is just another flawed and imperfect study to figure out who God is.

>Have you personnaly cought some of them as being sex offenders while they are preaching? If so, what was the outcome of you finding out?

Out of sight, out of mind fallacy.
