Hope to see "5 More Stupid Things About Jehovah's Witnesses" in the near future! Here's some ideas:

- In 1929 the Watchtower Society (WTS) built a 10 room mansion in San Diego called Beth Sarim. It was meant to house men that were going to be resurrected for the purpose of leading the world to salvation, including Abraham, King David of Israel, etc. In reality, the leader of the WTS used the mansion as his winter home.

- Judicial committees - they have their own legal system within the congregation, that isn't public, but held completely behind closed doors.

- 2 Witness Rule - if a JW child goes to their elders and says, "so and so is molesting me", the elders require a second witness to be brought forward (cuz, you know, pedophiles commit their crimes for audiences). The also discourage the child and the child's family from going to the police.

- They were an NGO member of the UN for 10 years, even though they dictate that their members not have any political involvement. During these same 10 years, JWs in Malawi were persecuted and even killed for refusing to be members of their one-party political state.

- Sparlock!

- They intentionally make their children outsiders at school (not standing for the anthem or partaking in classroom celebrations). This helps immensely in brainwashing their children, because the children already feel separated from society.

- Members can't vote or partake in any political activity, but the WTS is very active judicially, constantly petitioning the courts for religious freedoms, registering for charitable status, and members have no problems living in social housing or on welfare

- The WTS claims to be god's prophet, but they constantly change their doctrines (they used to celebrate holidays and allow blood transfusions).

- They claim that before Eve was corrupted by Satan, that all animals on Earth lived in harmony (apparently lions, bears, etc. were all vegetarian).

- Only JWs will be saved at Armageddon, which is why they preach so much (to save people), yet they don't preach in 33 countries, that together, amount to over 1 billion people

- They say that Jesus's invisible rule starting in 1914 is based on the fall of Jerusalem in 607 BC...but Jerusalem didn't fall in 607 BC, it fell in 587 BC (while this may not seem like a big deal, their entire belief system is based on this calculation)

- They altered their translation of the bible to suit their teachings

- They're not allowed to read the bible without WTS publications guiding their interpretation. They're actually told that if they study the bible without WTS publications guiding them, that they will fall into darkness.

- They claim that they opposed Hitler, but letters from their leader at the time show that they actually sympathized with him, and supported his hate of Jews

Sadly enough, those were all off the top of my head. There are hundreds of things about JWs that are stupid.
