|ONE of the Watch Tower Society’s most sinister beliefs is an insistence on its members to refuse blood transfusions.
Based, erroneously, upon prohibitions in the Old Testament, i.e. Leviticus 17:14, countless thousands of Witnesses have been forced to give up their lives rather than dare upset the organisation.
