I am an anointed Jehovah's Witness. They don't, as can be seen in the comment by Bill they believe that she is "the whole of false religion combined." However, what they believe is false. Here's why:
“This calls for a mind that has wisdom: The seven heads mean seven mountains, where the woman (the whore of Babylon) sits on top" (Rev. 17:9).
To sit "on top" (of the figurative "mountain") is to occupy the highest position over seven world empires. One translation says "where the woman rules." Therefore, how does the Roman Catholic Church, all Protestant denominations, Islam, all eastern religions, including Hinduism and Buddhism, all Wiccan (pagan) religions, and every other kind of religion combined sit "on top" of the Anglo-American world empire and all six previous world empires? They don't. It's impossible. There is only ONE ancient "mystery" religion that dominates Britain and American and it is the same powerful and secret religion that ruled over all six previous world empires.
This simple quiz in the form of an analogy PROVES that it is IMPOSSIBLE for the whole of false religion to be the "mother" of individual false religions. Jehovah's Witnesses will NOT answer these three questions because they have been programmed to NEVER question their beliefs and thus suffer from severe cognitive dissonance when faced with the truth. They will even LIE to support their deeply ingrained false belief.
True or false?
"On her forehead was written a name, a mystery: Babylon the Great (all false religions as a whole), mother of the prostitutes (individual false religions)..." (Rev. 17:5).
A or B?
A All Bethel branches as a whole are the mother of individual Bethels.
B Brooklyn Bethel is the mother of individual Bethels.
A All false religions as a whole are the mother of individual false religions.
B One ancient false religion is the mother of individual false religions
Freemasonry is the oldest and most powerful false religion on earth. It is the "mystery" (or "secret") religion that rules over the Anglo-American world empire and also dominated all six previous world empires.

Who cares what JW's say about the Catholic Church, or about any Christian Church? When a group defects from another group, they often badmouth the group they defected from, in a desperate effort to make their defection seem legitimate.

We do not say that it is just the Catholic church, we say it is all of False religion combined.
The Bible book of Revelation describes false religion. It is portrayed as a drunken prostitute who has power over many kingdoms and their peoples.
This figurative woman commits fornication with many kings and is drunk with the blood of God’s true worshippers. Revelation 17:1, 2, 6, 18
She has a name written on her forehead that matches her filthy and repulsive conduct. The name is “Babylon the Great, the mother of the harlots and of the disgusting things of the earth.” Revelation 17:5.
The Scriptural description of Babylon the Great fits the world’s collective body of false religion.

Actually...they don't say that.
They say something equally contrary to Biblical teaching.
I point out that
according to that teaching
the Roman Catholic Church is only a small part of "the world empire of false religion".
(Of course, there is no "world empire of false religion", and the author himself teaches us that "the whore of Babylon" means something entirely different from that.)

Why worry about it in the first place? It's not like JW is a real religion.

Because one of the higher ups composed that to discredit every other denomination out there except the JW business model so they are dutifully repeating that. They are well trained copy and paste machines.

If it isn't written in the king James version bible and confirmed by Gods Holy Spirit who was sent here after Jesus ascended to live within us to show us truth, then it is a mad made religion. Both JWs and catholics are wrong in their theology as are many other religions. Satan had people change church doctrine to so that all the world would not be saved by the blood of Jesus.

Any church that is cleaving to idols instead of God is whoring around on God. And the church refers to believers. It is not an actual building. I wouldn't just pick on the Catholics...some of them may be very close to God and I wouldn't want to hurt God's feelings by assuming that someone was whoring around on God. That's a bold accusation, and we are not supposed to point the finger.
