INTERFERENCE OF THE WATCHTOWER WITH THE PRIVATE LIVES OF ITS FOLLOWERS
As it is well-known, it is a rule that when dark, secretive societies or dictatorships want to achieve their goal and keep their power, they use far-fetched illegal methods. Such methods may include mechanisms of terrorism and spying, violation of private life and of individual scope and generally mechanisms that deplete human value as well as internationally accepted and identified individual rights...
Unfortunately, the Society of Jehovah’s Witnesses, “The watchtower”, is not exempted from this rule. With a view to achieving its goal, as a new coming Orwell-like ‘Big Brother’, it does not hesitate to resort to spying and prying even on the most private moments of the individual life of its followers. And when we say private moments we certainly mean sexual intercourse! Although it sounds extraordinary and hard to believe, “The Watchtower” wishes to keep track of the sexual stances!! its followers take! And even more “The Watchtower” declares whether it approves of them or not!
On the other hand, it’s really sad on the part of its followers, because we realise that once they join the Society they lose their dignity, their critical thought and ethics, and just expect guidance from the Society as to what is ethical and what is not during their intercourse with the people they mostly love; instead of taking their own decisions on sexual ethics based on the norm of showing respect and of avoiding the humiliation of their lover who is in resemblance to God.
THE PROBLEM OF “SEXUAL DIVERSITY” IN ‘THE HEAVEN’ OF THE WATCHTOWER
So, the Society on the occasion of sodomy on which it lectures in its official leaflet ‘Watchtower’ of December 1st, 1972 p.p. 734-736, it reveals that it had entered the bedrooms of its married couples and discovered that a lot of its members were having oral and anal sex. Also, pay attention to the hypocrisy of the Society in the document we quote below. While it states that it’s forbidden to investigate private lives of married couples, yet, it takes measures when it discovers that there still exists the previously mentioned sexual abnormality:
Watchtower December 1st, 1972 p.p. 734 - 736: Jehovah’s Witnesses take to oral and anal sex
However, how is it possible for “The Watchtower” to find out what happens in the couple’s bedroom? Unfortunately, Jehovah’s Witnesses have sunk so low! The ‘brainstorming’ they have been submitted to is so much that the spouses peach against each other!!! And their ‘sinking’ has no ending since young spouses are literally humiliated when they are brought before the elders who constitute the judicial committee (yes that’s right, there are courts in the Society which deal with various offences of ethical purity and ethical preaching) to give a detailed description of what is happening in their marital bedroom.
Marriages have entered times of turbulence and couples have been in danger of breaking up their marriage when one of the spouses isn’t a Jehovah’s Witness and regards all these – as they are indeed – as objectionable and as vulgar interference with personal life and especially with private affectionate loving moments.
However, despite the spying of “The Watchtower” and the indiscreet intervention in the bedrooms of its followers, sodomy and sexual abnormality of any kind is flourishing in the ‘Paradise’ of the Society, since the elders are the ones who urged married Jehovah’s Witnesses couples to take to such abnormal ‘sports’. Therefore, the Society was compelled to send a letter, by the code name W, to the congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses in California, U.S.A., to ‘reprimand’ those elders who had advised married couples that oral sex is not immoral:
The Body of Elders urges Jehovah’s Witnesses to take to oral sex
This document is from the book “A Crisis of Conscience” by Raymond Franz, p 45, English edition. R. Franz has been able to have hold of the above document, since he used to be a member of the Governing Body of Jehovah’s Witnesses, that is, of those who were in Brooklyn – the headquarters of the Society of the Watchtower – and govern Jehovah’s Witnesses all over the world.
AND THE ‘SEXUAL DIVERSITY’ OF JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES IS GOING STRONG
It’s worth pointing out how accommodating the conscience of the Society is as far as ethics is concerned and how easily it manipulates ethics on condition. In the letter they sent to the W congregation in California, they do not reprimand – as one would have expected – the offenders who had been having oral sex, but they turn against the body of elders who dared to pass their own beliefs and not those of the Society.
Coming now to the end of this interesting – as we see it – issue we would like to mention that in spite of the willing or unwilling efforts of “The Watchtower”, a lot of its followers still take to sexual abnormality, a fact that urges the Society to recur to this issue in its publications quite often. Out of the abundance of incidents of sexual misconduct we have ‘fished’ in the publications of the Society, we quote the most recent, so that it could also function as proof for those Jehovah’s Witnesses who will argue that all these used to happen in the past and it is not an issue any more as today there is no such sexual misconduct and everything in the Society is pure and holy. The extract below is from “The Watchtower” of April 1st, 1999, p 31, and it refers to Jehovah’s Witnesses, both male and female, who follow the disgusting Canaanite practices.
“The Watchtower” of April 1st, 1999, p 31: Jehovah’s Witnesses follow the Canaanite practices, bestiality, sodomy, etc.
Canaanites were a Semitic race from Canaan, the fourth son of Ham (son of Noah) who lived in Palestine. Apart from anything else their name denotes sexual perversions, such as sodomy, bestiality, homosexuality and especially incestuousness (in other words having intercourse with family members). The Prophets of Israel turn furiously against them and warn Israelites not to follow their perverted practices because they will be faced with God’s Wrath.
