Jehovah's Witnesses knocking?

SHILL (Graham Mewburn just above) is of course an active real Jehovah's Witness who is lying that's he/she is non member. This is called Shilling you are a SHILL just like the carnival geeks that helped sell the snake oil. Look up the word shill please. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shill Scientology and Jehovah's Witness pull this same shill-scam all over.With the JW it's called "theocratic warfare" aka lying for God. What gives with these cults? If you are so warm and lovable and attractive why do you have to lie so much to promote yourselves?

The Jehovah's Witnesses cite four biblical texts (Genesis 9:4, Leviticus 17:12-14, Acts 15:29 and Acts 21:25). They say these mean that blood, the life-force, belongs to God and is not there for human use. They believe it a sin to eat not just black pudding but also to eat the flesh of animals that have not been properly bled. And they extend the ban to transfusions. They won't even allow someone's blood to be stored before an operation and then used after it to replace their own blood loss. Blood is not to be stored; it is to be poured out and returned to God. Some JWs even reject dialysis or cell salvage on these grounds. Some will not accept red cells, white cells, platelets or plasma, but accept "fractions" made from these components. There is a philosophical problem here. When a substance is broken down into components does the original remain? Some 90-96 per cent of blood plasma consists of water. The remainder is albumin, globulins, fibrinogen and coagulation factors. JWs say these may be used, according to conscience, but only if taken separately. Opponents say is like outlawing a ham and cheese sandwich but allowing the eating of bread, ham and cheese separately. They are criticised for other inconsistencies. Blood fraction products are only available because of blood donation – a practice JWs condemn as unethical. Watchtower bloodless surgery propaganda http://www.theopenpress.com/?a=articles&code=01...
