Jehovah’s Witnesses Sue To Stop Dissemination Of Past Teachings

The Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania, Inc. , which is the multi-billion dollar parent corporation of the worldwide religious organization known as “Jehovah’s Witnesses” has filed a lawsuit in Ontario, Canada in an attempt to shut down a Canadian-based internet website.

The Canadian website: is operated by a former Jehovah’s Witness. The website’s content consists of “quotations” from WatchTower publications which have previously been widely distributed to the general public, but are now out-of-print.

The WatchTower’s lawsuit alleges that such “quotations” from its own literature are “embarrassing” and have caused Jehovah’s Witnesses loss of “reputation” and “goodwill”.

Ironically, Jehovah’s Witnesses are best known for their lack of “goodwill” among the general public due to their “reputation” for doing anything and everything to get non-JWs to read their literature.

The WatchTower conglomerate is the largest religious publisher in the world, and all Jehovah’s Witnesses members are required to engage in public distribution of literature.

The website that scares Jehovah’s Witnesses:

Watchtower flipflops, unbiblical teachings, failed predictions, contradicting doctrines, etcetera:

Jehovah’s Witnesses spend approximately 1.2 billion hours annually distributing millions of copies of WatchTower books and magazines.

The website believes that it is making “fair use” of quotations from WatchTower literature, and that such fair use is “in the public’s best interest” given the fact that such quotations reveal numerous discarded religious teachings and unfulfilled predictions for the end of the world which have resulted in irreparable harm to literally millions of people around the world.
