1. How many children have lost their lives as a result of the doctrine of the Jehovah’s Witnesses on blood transfusions?
Irish citizens are fortunate in this jurisdiction to have the High Court interfere when the life of a child is in danger. The famous case at the Coombe Maternity Hospital is a case in point. The Jehovah’s Witnesses actually took a court case on this and lost.
2. The case where a member of the Jehovah’s Witnesses Ruth Moram’s health has been destroyed by a system of oppressive process. These include internal legal processes which will be the subject of an appeal to the Appeal Courts on July 20 next.
3. Social ostracism, the boycott or the 1984 construction called “Disfellowshipping?”
This post describes its damaging results and shows how it violates the clear teaching of Jesus.
4. We assume that the Jehovah’s Witnesses have become a registered charity since last October? If so could they inform the public what their current financial position is? Is it true they have up to €5 million in the bank? If so and in regard to their presence in Ireland what social benefit are they performing?
In the Irish Times article they stated,
“Every active Jehovah’s Witness is an ordained minister, male, female, young and old. Everybody would be involved in that work going door to door. It’s voluntary work so nobody does it on a paid basis.”
If that is the case what do they need the cash for?
5. They are not being upfront with the public:
“My view on the 144,000 is that it is up to Jehovah to choose those people,” said Deborah Olaitan Awogboro (20), on her religion’s assertion that spaces in heaven are finite.
In reality those spaces have been filled for years so that the Queen bees are in heaven already and the drones will only have an earthly existence. A great hope to peddle door to door?
6. It is clear that the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Ireland are experiencing a massive decline like all religious groups. It would be interesting to get the statistical information on the level of Irish membership and how much of their activity depends on Eastern European and African members?
Please add your questions and any answers would be gratefully received in our comment section.
