From the Author
First secular hardcover on Jehovah's Witnesses in decades.
BLOOD ON THE ALTAR reveals the Watchtower organization as a
mind control sect responsible for more deaths than the Waco
and Jonestown cults put together. Literally thousands of
Jehovah's Witnesses have bled to death in obedience to the
Brooklyn leadership's ban on blood transfusions (and past
bans on vaccinations and organ transplants). The book presents
medical statistics plus dozens of actual cases--names,
dates, hospitals, attending physicians--some involving
children smuggled out hospital windows or transported beyond
the jurisdiction of child welfare agencies.
From that attention-grabbing start BLOOD ON THE ALTAR turns
the clock back to look at the sect's origins and growth from
Charles Taze Russell's religious explorations in the 1860's
to changes instituted by current president Milton Henschel
affecting the 13 million who now attend Kingdom Hall.
Unique features found in BLOOD ON THE ALTAR include details
of the multi-billion-dollar WT financial and real estate empire,
a note on Michael Jackson and his sister LaToya, the WT and
Jimmy Swaggart, the new presidency of Milton Henschel, and
the author's personal dealings with Governing Body members.
