I watch this for the first time last night, I was floored. Why would anyone want to be Jehovah's Witness? I never understood it. If one should do some online research they will be quite surprised at what they will find, in terms of this group. The Witnesses make many claims in their attempt to convert folks to their faith. They profess to have the only true Christian church, to be the only true representatives of God, to have the only correct biblical teaching, and to be the only true announcers of Jehovah's coming kingdom.
Former Scientologist Leah Remini has started the third season of her docu-series on the Church of Scientology on A&E. On Monday night's episode of SCIENTOLOGY AND THE AFTERMATH, Leah Remini for the very first time meets with former members of a different organization—the Jehovah's Witnesses. In the 2- hour special episode, a panel of contributors open up and shared their personal stories of growing up in this secretive organization. There were stories of tragedy and loss including family members who died from refusing blood transfusions; siblings and parents lost to suicide; families torn apart by the practice of disfellowshipping (shunning); the belief in women's inherent inferiority; and the alleged failure to punish child abusers or even to believe in claims of abuse.
