Jehovah's Witness Double Standards

Malawi Vs. Mexico

Jehovah’s Witnesses are proud to tell others that they live by the same teachings all over the world. Yet, after leaving the religion and doing our research, we discovered that this is certainly not the case.

We can recall hearing about the brothers and sisters in Malawi when the Watchtower, Bible & Tract Society initiated a letter writing campaign to the Malawian government in the 1970’s. It wasn’t until after reading Crisis of Conscience by Raymond Franz that we realized that the friends in Malawi were experiencing successive waves of vicious attacks and acts of brutality by savage mobs for many years before it came to our attention in the United States.

There were reports of Malawian families losing their homes in destructive fires, women being sexually violated by multiple men, suffering from miscarriages. Still others were being violently tormented and brutally beaten and savagely killed.

Their offense? Refusal to purchase a 25 cent political party card because according to the Watchtower Society it was tantamount to being unfaithful to God. According to Franz, “the issue hinged on the fact that the card was a “political” card representing membership in a “political” party. Because, of course, to a Jehovah’s Witness, the word “political” has a bad connotation.

Yet, there was an issue unfolding in Mexico at the same time. While the Watchtower Society was refusing the brothers in Malawi to purchase a political card, they were allowing the brothers in Mexico to bribe the Mexican officials by purchasing the an “Identity Cartilla for Military Service” in order to escape military service.
