Atheist dating a religious girl
“From 1919 through 1988, petitions and appeals in a total of 138 cases involving JWs were made to the U. They had the lawful right to preach in unorthodox places using unorthodox methods. The leadership makes sure they don’t forget how fortunate they are to have the “Truth” that no other religion has.
They won for themselves and all other religious groups, constitutional guarantees of freedom of speech and worship. Since I have been guaranteed the most important of the freedoms JWs fought so hard for, freedom of expression, I’ll acquaint you with the harmful side of this organization and why I say they are now the oppressors.
If I die now by obeying God’s law, in the future it means I’ll be resurrected and live in a perfect new world.
However, it’s not likely I would die if I don’t take blood transfusions because in the past early transfusions were whole blood, but modern medical practice primarily uses only components or ‘fractions’ of the blood.
The public knows refusing a needed blood transfusion can cause death or disability and that’s why JWs makes the news, especially if refusing blood involves a child.
Then in 1945, the procedure was banned, and in 1961 its followers were told they would be excommunicated for taking a blood transfusion.This amounted to almost complete protection under the First Amendment of the United States Constitution free exercise clause. What I’m going to say now will sound quite harsh, but my close association with this group gives me authority to say this: After having successfully defended and legally established their right to practice their religion however they saw fit, this once oppressed group went from being the oppressed to being the oppressor. Taking advantage of a Bible Study with JWs can be tempting to those who are curious to see what’s in the Bible, information they believe might answer life’s questions.
