See if you can figure out why the Jehovah's Witnesses withdrew from the CESNUR '98 conference? Were these participants intimidated by a "Comments from the Friends" expose? Did they all cancel for "personal reasons"? Or did the Watchtower Headquarters tell them to cancel?

Footnotes

  1. For specific reports, see these individual country files.  (Back to text) 
  2. Statements presented are, respectively, the earlier mentioned Misinformation, Religious Minorities and Religious Pluralismoffsite, and "Next Year in Jerusalem": Jerusalem in Catastrophic Millennialismoffsite. The latter is a good example of one of Introvigne's more reasonable presentations.  (Back to text) 
  3. That Christian countercult professionals consider sociological aspects in addition to theology is not surprising. It is said that bad doctrine leads to bad fruit behaviorally. While for the Christian, examining theology is a priority, he is not just concerned with whether movements or individuals "talk the talk," but also whether they "walk the walk."  (Back to text) 
  4. CESNUR has recently tried to censor the site which carries that article. Details  (Back to text)
