Re: Jehovah´s Witnesses in Turkey

Just before I left Fethiye I ran into a couple of JWs, man and his wife, who were very keen to convert me. I explained they were wasting their time and did wonder why on earth they had decided to pitch up in a place like Turkey. I wonder if they are still there!

Re: Jehovah´s Witnesses in Turkey

A past friend of mine who used to be involved in pyramid selling would always invite them in, but before they left it was very unusual if he hadn't signed them up to whatever scheme he was in at the time, usually on the pretext of being able to make money for their church.

They told me of the problems they faced with the authorities, who tolerated rather than welcomed them.

They had repeated problems just trying to find a venue that would allow them to gather.

Not like Europe then ? With all the mosques and tolerance we have to give our Muslim neighbours !!!!

Re: Jehovah´s Witnesses in Turkey

There was a seamstress living in Akbuk, who had to move away because she was a J.W. and her neighbours made her life intolerable. Heaven forbid we should criticise Muslims or their faith !!!

Re: Jehovah´s Witnesses in Turkey

I have a friend who is a JW , he seems to have no trouble practising his faith at the little christian church up near the Apollo temple every week
Maybe Didim is getting more tolerable
