Did shunning from Jehovah’s Witnesses drive mom to murder-suicide?

Did shunning from Jehovah’s Witnesses drive mom to murder-suicide?

When someone leaves the religion, a drastic shunning takes place: No one inside the religion, even parents, are allowed to speak to the departed again, according to Taylor and several other former Jehovah’s Witnesses who talked to the Free Press.

This is not the first incident of a Jehovah’s Witness being drawn to murder and suicide.

• In 2001, the shame of being thrown out of the Jehovah’s Witnesses drove former Michigan resident Christian Longo to kill his wife and three young children in Oregon. Authorities said his financial troubles triggered his expulsion from the religious group, which then triggered the killings.

• In 2014, a family of four was found dead in their South Carolina home in a murder-suicide carried out by the father, who was a devout Jehovah’s Witness. All four were shot in the head. Continue reading →

You turned them away and you shunned them.”Continue reading →

Jehovah’s Witnesses Are Warning People Not to Masturbate

Imagine two older men telling you what’s wrong with fantasizing — and what’s wrong with gay people — in more depth than you’d expect from a religious leader, and you get a sense of what these videos were attempting to do.

A former Long Beach teacher and Jehovah’s Witness church elder was sentenced to six years in prison on Friday for sexually assaulting one of his students who also served in his congregation in Cypress, authorities said.
