The slow sanitizing of extremist thought and actions

My guess is that as the JW religion ages some of it's extreme practices will slowly be sanitized.

They already can accept most parts of blood, give it another 50 years and I would guess that blood becomes more symbolic and the value of life is placed higher than the symbolism of life,  Or some better medical alternative comes along,(ie synthetic blood with nano bots)


Watchtower‘s July 2009 “Awake!” magazine, p. 29, No one should be forced to worship in a way that he finds unacceptable or be made to choose between his beliefs and his family.
While they don't practice what they preach here , one can hope that eventually it may come to be.

The two witness policy, now(?) the directions are to tell the person they can/(should?) report to the local authorities, or at least I thought I heard this a few years back although I am not sure if they do this in all regions/areas.

A major influence of these  must have been law suits that pressure the organization to make adjustments to protect its flock. Hooray for civilization.
