Children Of JehovahStreaming Video - 2013
The Jehovah's Witnesses are a fast-growing, media-shy religious sect that believe that Armageddon is rapidly approaching. Its members find fulfillment in their tight-knit community and in church activities, including the extensive proselytizing required by the faith. Children raised as Jehovah's Witnesses are often torn between the rewards of conforming to its laws and the freedoms of a secular world. This program focuses on the pressures adolescents and adults come under as they decide to stay in the church or leave, and on the impact of the terrible penalty faced by those who do leave. They are "dis-fellowshipped" and their religious community, including their own family, is required to cut off all communication with them.
