27. I was raised as one.


Jehovah's Witnesses are not particularly dangerous to you or society at large, but they are very much a danger to anyone who gives their life over to them.


And they absolutely believe in "blood running as high as a horse's neck during the tribulation" and they believe that that event is due any-day-now, and they further believe that if you do not believe as they do, your blood is going to be part of that sea of blood. Every Jehovah's Witness kid has seen an adult smile as they talk about the world being violently destroyed.

They literally take dibs on your house as they go from door to door. They do it slightly in jest, as in "well I'm getting this house after armageddon...", but they really do believe your house is going to be available soon enough.


And should their master's message ever turn towards more direct action, you can bet that plenty of JW's would do exactly as told. That said, it's not likely their doctrine of political abstinence will change anytime soon.
