    No way! Give money to the poor and help people in need? Be associated with the Masons? The only charity the Witnesses get involved in is helping each other and handing out copies of their literature to people.

    They do not have soup kitchens, or homes for the homeless. They do not provide food, clothing, shelter or medicines to the victims of natural disasters. Yes, they will help each other - but I have been unable to find any verifiable source to support the claim that they are involved in worldwide humanitarian activities.

    When I was a Jehovah's Witness, we concentrated on people's spiritual needs. That's why we went from house to house with our literature, offering to study the Bible with people. Individual Witnesses might feel compassion for a homeless and hungry man, and offer food but there is no such thing as organised disaster relief or charitable giving to non-Witnesses.

    In February 2014 in the Philippines, the doors to the Kingdom Halls were locked against the mainly Catholic population. In the face of that disaster, the Witnesses looked after only themselves. This from a Christian (not a Jehovah's Witness) who went there to help in the relief work.

    No. The eastern star is supported by a variety of gravitational forces acting on it, keeping it in it's relative position within the Milky Way galaxy.

    Jehovah's Witnesses, as a group, do not even feed the poor. How on earth could they support a star?
