Yep, bats.It crazy. Abusers in the fullest sense of the word.
They take your mind, your family and your life. Try to leave JWs after joining. If you decide it's not a true religion, you cannot publicly share your concerns. If you do, or you even think thoughts contrary to " current " WT theology, you will be " disfellowshipped" ..Which means your family will never again speak to you or have any dealings with you. Their loyalty is to the " organization". Not Jesus or God. It's a terrible mind control cult.
The JWs do not act like a charity. This is a huge real estate acquisition and development scheme. A religious non-profit should be about charity. Helping your fellow man. IMHO JWs look only after themselves in a corporate manner. Their finances are never disclosed on a National or International level. There is absolutely no transparency. They exist tax free and skirt the national labor laws. They depend on " volunteer " labor and donated funds to acquire massive amounts of wealth and real estate. All Americans subsidize them by our taxes.
All people have a right to believe whatever they like, no matter how deluded or far fetched, but religions that profit from others should be taxed.
