Deutsche Bahn approves actions of Jehovah’s Witnesses

Hannover – In the past, older ladies stood silently in dark corners, holding the magazine “Wachtturm” in their hands. Today, Jehovah’s Witnesses, a global and fire-threatening faith organization, are behaving differently.

The new tactic of the human catcher!

In groups of four are young, well-dressed supporters in pedestrian zones or move from house to house. On the face a friendly grin and next to the “Watchtower” iPads with info material at hand.

For some time, the “witnesses” even make themselves in Hanoverian central station wide. Also to be seen in Hamburg and Bremen. Sect expert Margit Ricarda Rolf (64) raises the alarm: “In front of all of us, the sect is focusing on man! And nobody does anything! ”

Perfidious: In the entrance halls of the railway, the activists appear in a respectable environment. Travelers expect no advertising for a dangerous sect between tracks and shops.

All this happens with the express permission of Deutsche Bahn.

A spokesman for BILD: “We tolerate the Jehovah’s Witnesses at the stations, because their behavior is peaceful-passive nature. The persons concerned can invoke the freedom of the religious confession specially protected by the Basic Law. “They did not approach travelers and be peaceful!

Peacefully maybe, but certainly not harmless.

According to sect expert Rolf, advertisers are particularly interested in migrants. “They can be found in the train station. Easy prey also because of their problems with cultural adaptation. ”

Criticism also from the Protestant church. Pastor Jürgen Schnare, head of the Weltanschauung office: “I find it difficult if the railway has no problems with the appearance of the witnesses in the station and tolerates it very generously.”

The Jehovah’s Witnesses have more than 8 million followers worldwide, in Lower Saxony there are more than 13,000.

Exploitation and Psycho Terror

“Control, punishment and propagated alternatives – according to this fear and intimidation principle, Jehovah’s Witnesses function,” says sectarian ex-Margit Ricarda Rolf (64), who was a member for 16 years. So supporters are suggested that the end of the world is imminent and only the faith community ensures survival.

Rolf: “The mind does not matter, the Jehovah practice psycho-terror!” They exploit their members also financially.
