The Watchtower Hates Anyone Or Anything That Opposes Them
Raymond Franz was a member of the Governing Body. When he could no longer tolerate what was being taught and practiced in the organization he left and gave up the only life he had ever known. Franz realized that the Watchtower organization is just another apocalyptic group founded in the mid-late 1800s. Franz left because he was concerned with what makes a group truly a cult, which is control by the leaders over its members. He explains how the Watchtower even monitored its members bedroom activities. He speaks of disfellowshippings where families were encouraged to "shun" other members who had been kicked out of the Watchtower, effectively ruining the lives of thousands people. Franz documented and explained failed prophecy, which caused many trusting members of the "truth" to sell homes, postpone college, and other goals in order to be ready for the end. Of course, this brave man has been demonized by the Watchtower and is referred to by many non-flattering names.
