Provide specific examples of prejudice or discrimination in jehovah witnesses group has experienced.
Weegy: Because the Holocaust was completely based on that. Most Germans believed that they were superior to the Jews, therefore discriminated against them for being who they were. They prejudged Jews as unworthy of life, so they killed them. [ But not only Jews were being treated horribly for their religion, the gypies, the blacks, polish folks, etc. They were also discriminated against and thrown into ghettos and concentration camps simply because they weren't German. Jews and others were murdered because of the groups they belonged to (Jews, Roma, Jehovah's Witnesses, etc) not for anything they had done. ] (More)

How does Jehovah witness ethnic group differ from other ethnic groups such as differences in ancestry, language, or culture?
Weegy: introduction to jehovah's witnesses In 1869, in Allegheny, Pennsylvania, Charles Taze Russell began a Bible study that led to the movement that later (in 1931) became known as the Jehovah's Witnesses. [ He was brought up as a Presbyterian, but joined a Congregational Church at the age of fifteen. By seventeen, he had become a skeptic who was very unhappy about the interpretations of the Bible that he had encountered. However, he joined a Second Adventist Bible study, which helped to re-establish his faith and led to him starting up his own group and eventually publishing his own influential periodical, 'Zion's Watch Tower and Herald of Christ's Presence' (from 1897). 'The Watch Tower' has become the most widely distributed religious magazine in the world. Jehovah's Witnesses consider their religion to be a restoration of original first-century Christianity. They accept both the Old and New Testaments of the Bible as inspired by God. They do not, however, use the symbol of the cross because they believe it to be of pagan origin. Jehovah's Witnesses meet up to five times a week in their local Kingdom Hall (i.e. large meeting place of Jehovah's Witnesses; also known as Assembly Hall in some countries) or in private homes. Jehovah's Witnesses claim to have over 6 million active members worldwide, and that over 15 million people attend their meetings. There are thought to be ~150,000 Jehovah's Witnesses in the UK and Ireland. beliefs and practices Jehovah's Witnesses believe in one god (known as Jehovah), a spiritual being with a non-human body who created and controls everything. They believe that Jehovah created Christ, his human son, to redeem mankind from sin and death, and resurrected him to be our lord and saviour, but not an equal to God. They do not believe in the Trinity. Jehovah's Witnesses believe that man is born with sin because of the disobedience Adam and Eve showed towards God. They believe that Satan, an enemy of God who afflicts pain and ... (More)

What has been Jehovah's Witness ethnic group’s experience with other ethnic groups?
Weegy: The Jehovah's Witnesses appear remarkably successful in their attempts to sustain an ethnically diverse, yet spiritually integrated global community. [ Jehovah's theocratic organization makes no concessions to the racial and social inequalities that exist outside its righteous boundaries. Witnesses deny all "worldly" distinctions based on race, skin color, ethnicity, nationality and class. In Jehovah's theocratic kingdom ethnic particularities, political allegiances and socioeconomic distinctions are (ideally) repudiated and dissolved. Witness ideology declares that "soon God's kingdom will destroy the present ungodly system of things," and that persons "out of all nations and tribes and peoples and tongues" will assemble in that great millennial paradise on the newly-renovated earth.41 Within the Watchtower's firm but loving embrace, Jehovah's Witnesses congregate worldwide at the same times, speaking the same theocratic language, listening to the same Truth, proclaiming the same kingdom message to any and all who would listen and obey. But there is another, more complicated dimension, to this triumphalist millenarian rhetoric. During public showings of the innovative "Photo-Drama of Creation" in New York City in 1914, Charles Russell noticed that as the number of blacks in attendance increased, his white audience diminished. When he realized that many whites resisted the idea of intermingling with blacks, Russell decided to segregate the blacks into the theater's gallery. To those understandably offended by that compromising maneuver, Russell explained that he must place God's cause over issues of race. ] (More)
