8,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses Did Not Vote
Amid calls from the two political parties in yesterday’s runoff election for Liberians to vote, as it is one of the most critical ways that an individual can influence government decision-making, not all Liberians responded to the call. Some of those who did not respond belong to the Christian group known as Jehovah’s Witnesses, who believe that as Christians they should remain politically neutral, based on what the Holy Bible teaches about Christian neutrality in politics. 8,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses Did Not Vote
The Daily Observer has reliably gathered that the more than 6,000 baptized Jehovah’s Witnesses in the country and some of their followers (those who have not been baptized, but attend services) – about 2,000 of them – did not vote in the national elections.
