Witnesses for Atheism: Cool Podcasts for Ex-Witnesses Turned Atheists

Normally, I’d include this with my news and links updates, but I’m lazy and didn’t want to wait. Witnesses for Atheism is a pretty sweet podcast for those hungry masses of ex-Witnesses that want to hear more podcasts from…well, ex-Witnesses! I discovered it through Twitter, which I finally joined about a week or two ago.

The podcasters grew up as Jehovah’s Witnesses and start out by telling us how they went from believers to atheists. Please encourage them to do more and let them know we’re listening.

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.

Yerevan sees another incident with Jehovah’s Witnesses involved

Yet another incident between a priest and Jehovah’s Witnesses has occurred in Yerevan. According to a message obtained by PanARMENAIAN.Net, a sectarian gathering in a Zvartnots airport -adjacent banquet hall arouse concern of the employees as well as the guests of the adjoining halls.

Does Your Religion Affect Your Income

According to this study, the religions with members earning the least amount of money are historically Black Christian churches and Jehovah’s Witnesses. Just 15 percent of members of historically Black churches make $75,000 or more per year, which, as Hutson adds, may have a lot to do with the opportunities available to African Americans.

2011 District Convention of Jehovah’s Witnesses

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!”

The classification “atypical” by Jehovah’s Witnesses UMP

I found out about that one at JWD. (Thanks to AndersonsInfo.) Here’s the link to the discussion for those who might have missed it. Note that the original article is in French. The link above is a Google translation.

Here’s some more good news circulating. The Society is telling its Witnesses that apostates are “mentally diseased.” Yippie. You know they’ll be calling all inactives and ex-Witnesses that one, too. If you often find yourself locked in mortal combat with overzealous Witnesses, you may as well prepare yourself for this accusation soon. Just a heads up.

Protect Yourself from Liars and Deceivers: Expose those who try to deceive you.

This may sound like the title of a Watchtower article warning Jehovah’s Witnesses about evil apostates, but in fact, it’s a list of suggestions at Psychology Today. It might come in handy the next time your mom cracks up on you because you haven’t been to the Kingdom Hall in a while.

Have you ever wondered… What does it mean to be mentally clean?
