Lloyd Evans: Jehovah’s Witnesses still celebrating parents who let their children die

[Lloyd Evans]

One of the more surprising things we realized when we started looking into Jehovah’s Witnesses controversies is how recent the “blood rule” is. It was only 1945 that, under then-president Nathan Norr, the Watchtower adopted the idea that blood transfusions somehow violate Biblical references to Jewish dietary laws.

Now, Lloyd Evans reports that Watchtower is still celebrating parents who sacrifice their children to this barbaric idea. Can this really be happening in the 21st century?
