I know, it sounds bad and all, but their practices and beliefs are that of a cult. First off, they have a hierarchy - men above women and children. Then, they claim that only a select few will become Angels, like the pastors, or "elders". Jehovah witnesses are being sued due to neglect and rape - what a good reputation to have! They tell followers not to socialize with immoral evil, or non-believers! What is that?
