In a disturbing video being shown to Jehovah’s Witnesses during their regional conferences this summer, parents of independent teens and young adults are instructed to shun their children when they are unable to bring them to heel within the strict confines of the church’s rules.
The video, uploaded to YouTube, is in Spanish only but with English subtitles, shows that by cutting off all contact with children they will suffer and become depressed –which hopefully will bring them back to “Jehovah.”
That's right as every parenting expert will tell you the best thing to do when a child does not embrace the strict tenets of your belief system is to throw them out onto the street, do nothing to make sure that they are safe, and stubbornly stick to your guns until they are finally so broken down they have no choice but to come crawling back to beg your forgiveness.
After all it's not as if they might be victimized by predators, get hooked on drugs, or even die alone and in pain, right?
Gee what a loving and generous religion, where do I sign up?
