How would you sum up the vile JW cult?
Right now, a plan is taking shape to erect a billboard in Texas that will warn people of the dangers the Jehovah’s Witnesses pose to their members and society at large.
To do so, supporters of the billboard need to raise $3,272, and have begun an online funding appeal at Indiegogo, which says:
Millions of people’s lives are being adversely affected every day by Jehovah’s Witnesses’ harmful teachings of shunning former members, refusal of certain kinds of medical treatment, social isolation, and harboring of child molesters. The goal of this campaign is to sponsor a billboard that will be targeted to current members traveling to the Belton, TX conventions July 31st – Aug 9th 2015.
These conventions attract thousands of current members and hundreds of prospective members. If we help just one wake up and walk away from the cult, we will be successful.
The funds will be used 100 percent for the purchase of ad space on a billboard along I-35 in Belton, TX, the main route those from Austin, San Antonio, and surrounding areas will use to get to the convention.
The billboard is 672 square feet and will run from July 15 to August 15:
Plenty of time to not only catch the attention of convention goers, but locals in the community and the workers setting up the convention.
A special web landing page will be created that will align with the billboard’s message so we can understand the success of the campaign. We will be measuring increase in web traffic as well as engagement and source.
If the organisers don’t reach the goal, all funds will go to supporting jwfacts.com.
The message of the billboard has not been finalised, but is under discussion on an ex-JW Reddit thread.
One suggestion is that the billboard should say:
The Religious Order of Jehovah’s Witnesses has intentionally enabled and protected pedophiles within its ranks for decades, Google it.
