News And Links For Ex-Jehovah’s Witnesses: Film About Jehovah’s Witnesses And Blood Transfusions

Experience leads to film

Blood, written by Dundas resident Patrick Chilvers, is a hospital drama that follows a family of Jehovah’s Witnesses. The family is forced to decide whether or not to allow their daughter to receive a blood transfusion after she is involved in an accident. The consequences of that decision could change their lives completely.

Doctors, Police “fight off” Jehovah’s Witnesses over blood transfusion

The life of a critically ill nine-year old girl (name withheld) whose parents belong to the Jehovah Witnesses faith was saved last Tuesday when the James Town police offered protection to the medical staff of the Princess Marie Louise Children’s Hospital to provide blood to the dying patient.

The police intervention was as a result of a distress call by doctors and nurses at the hospital who were faced with the challenge at the hands of the girl’s parents who were protesting against the intended transfusion of blood to their daughter since it was against their faith.

Well, at least they didn’t have to beat off the Witnesses. That would have been a totally different story. Hell, you know you would have clicked on the link if it said that.

Let God’s Kingdom Come!
Yep, that’s the theme. I think it’s rather fitting, especially as this cult has been waiting for God’s Kingdom for over a hundred years! I think this theme has the slight tone of, “oh come on Jehovah, for heavens sake! We’ve waited for so long for your Kingdom to come. Please, let it come!”

    For an atheist, there’s a lot of irony in watching one group of Christian’s pointing out how wrong another group of Christians is.

    “Those idiots think 2+2=5!!! All truly God fearing people know it actually equals 3!!!”

    • Same thoughts here. It’s not as if the GB has any real claim to authority that anyone other than a JW could see or measure. They claim to have an invisible connection to Jesus, who — for some reason — is manipulating their decisions on a very subtle, subconscious, almost nonexistent level.

      Really? In other words, they’re more or less like every other fundamentalist group asserting some sort of mystical authority that offers no meaningful proof. When proving their views, they are often force to refer to themselves or to pseudo-science. Or to misquoting real experts.

      BTW, here’s a link to something cool that I wish I had added to this update. Or had done myself.
