The Bulgarian Orthodox Church is organizing on October 11 a march in the northeastern city of Dobrich against the planned international congress of Jehovah's Witnesses there.

The Congress is also planned for October 11.

The Church is joined by the political parties VMRO and Bulgarian New Democracy. At their Thursday press conference the organizers voiced hope Dobrich's citizens will also take part in the march.

VMRO have suspicions Jehovah's Witnesses will attempt to turn Dobrich in one of their main hubs for disseminating ideas and recruit people and point out the sect is banned in several European countries. In Bulgaria the Jehovah's Witnesses have official registration since 1998.

The Bulgarian Orthodox church says the religious movement ideas are dangerous and directed against the official government over their stand against national symbols, blood transfusion and others.

The sect is active in the city of Dobrich and has their own educational center while the local authorities and the Prosecutor have failed to react so far, VMRO alarm.

Democracy is a profound concept that resides on a basic principle: The will of the majority but with respect to minority rights. Jehovah's Witnesses use their constitutional rights and democratic give others their religious beliefs. Accept and live under these beliefs who want it. Nobody is obliged to do anything, but one time a person agrees to be a Jehovah's Witness has an obligation to live under these religious beliefs. A sincere and honest search of the publications that are smart to demonstrate that the Jehovah's Witnesses teach respect the laws even when they are uncomfortable. Teach respect for the authorities and governments even when they are formed by individuals bad or corrupt. They do not engage in partisan politics. Do not engage in wars, guerrilla warfare and civil wars. If a Jehovah's witness violates the law, commit unlawful acts, practices and actions deliberately sin and condemned in the Bible as murder and robbery for example, since it does not show repentance are expelled from the organization of the church to all to understand. What are the organizations in Bulgaria that live on the same principles? While Bulgaria was living on the slavery of the Soviet regime, which made ??the orthodox church in defending their principles? He did nothing, while the Jehovah's Witnesses were persecuted and imprisoned for not supporting the communist regime. The worst is a political party now practicing the same acts that the Soviet government and democratic say. The people of Bulgaria does not deserve these parties nor the Orthodox Church. Jehovah's Witnesses who do not deserve respect and agree with them that do not receive them and go take care of your life.

" Jehovah's Witnesses were most destructive to our family. It has split it up completely, members not speaking to those who left the religion. They practise "shunning" of former members. They treat you as if you were dead and consider you "spiritually dead".

When one person is insane, it's called delusion. When a group of people agree on a common insanity, it's called Jehovah's Witnesses... this Mother of all Emperors With No Clothes"

Substitute the word "Mormon" for "Jehovah's Witness" and it is an exact description. Just look in on the Mormon forums and they say exactly the same thing about Mormonism.

Now do you see what I mean? I ask her politely to stop, but she charges right on.

That is what Nelly does and will always do. Right? Never mind don't answer.

Bill,

Please don't draw me into your ongoing drama with nelly. You have been told enough times how to deal with nelly (including helpful advise for your Newman down the hall WW). If you don't want to follow their advise that is your business, but leave me out of it.

Jehovah's Witnesses were most destructive to our family. It has split it up completely, members not speaking to those who left the religion. They practise "shunning" of former members. They treat you as if you were dead and consider you "spiritually dead".

The only increase shown in North America in recent years. is the fact they seem to counting people at a younger and younger age as a "member" of the congregation. The constant disappointment in their predicted "end of the world" or Armageddon, has led to many disillusioned middle aged and older members.

"Why should I give it a rest? You admit Mormonism is a bad religion and Mormons are full of crap, and I might consider giving it a rest."

I'LL ADMIT NO SUCH THING. WHAT YOU'RE PUSHING IS YOUR OPINION AND YOUR OPINION ALONE: THAT'S WHY YOU SHOULD GIVE IT A REST. YOUR OPINION IS WELL KNOWN AND REQUIRES NO INCESSANT REPEATING.

Can you read larger type?

" Wrong again. Several million people don't agree with you, let alone the "rest of the world"."

Those who don't agree with me are the brainwashed ones inside the cult. The mentally incompetent ones.

Why should I give it a rest? You admit Mormonism is a bad religion and Mormons are full of crap, and I might consider giving it a rest.

"and the rest of the world agrees with me."

Wrong again. Several million people don't agree with you, let alone the "rest of the world".

Why don''t you give it a rest? You're not accomplishing anything but trolling.

Nellie:

"Yep, just like the Mormons. The Mormon Jesus had his second coming in the Americas somewhere."

Wrong again.

JKS:

Now do you see what I mean? I ask her politely to stop, but she charges right on. She considers herself a mistress of LDS doctrine, and in reality she doesn't even know the basics, so it ridiculous to believe she knows any of the advanced stuff.

She may well be a mistress, but not of LDS theology.

You have to be mentally incapacitated to convert to LDS or to JW, and the rest of the world agrees with me.

Nellie.

"Just like Bill did. No wonder he is so brainless now. lol"

Excuse me, but aren't you the one who preached just recently about allowing other people's views to be valid? That statement doesn't look very tolerant to me. Neither the reference to the Church nor the use of the word, "brainles".

This is what I was talking to JKS about, these words indicating mental incapability. It's particularly worse when it's used only to anger.

" Their 'message' creed is a false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming in 1914."

Yep, just like the Mormons. The Mormon Jesus had his second coming in the Americas somewhere.

" Please INVESTIGATE thoroughly, independently before you dedicate your life at baptism to the Watchtower Society, the "spirit-directed (???) organization". No independent thinking is allowed thereafter. Check their Sept. 2008 Kingdom Ministry. Then, all your thinking is done for you.

The threat of disfellowshipping, expelling, shunning (even toward their own families) holds their members abusively from using and stating any free thought.
Check online abundant references, on google, like "jwfacts" and "freeminds" and "ajwrb"
Listen to WTS (then) Vice President Fred Franz in 1975 about "1975" at YouTube
The Watchtower Society is fearful of the Internet exposures by the thousands."

Gee, that sounds just like the Mormons. You have to check your brain at the door before you enter. Just like Bill did. No wonder he is so brainless now. lol

Lifelong Jehovah's Witnesses dissident speaks out on JW belief system .

A) They are at your door to recruit you for their watchtower society corporation,they will say that "we are just here to share a message from the Bible" this is deception right off.

B) Their 'message' creed is a false Gospel that Jesus had his second coming in 1914.The problem with this is it's not just a cute fairy tale,Jesus warned of the false prophets who would claim "..look he is here in the wilderness,or see here he is at the temple."

C) Their anti-blood transfusion ban against *whole blood* has killed thousands.

D) once they recruit you they will "love bomb" you in cult fashion to also recruit your family & friends or cut them off.
