I am not a theologian, but the case of Emma Gough has reminded me of a certain callousness about the Jehovah's Witness tradition where theological dogma comes before human compassion. That may be a twee way of putting it because you could say it is a broad sweep of a criticism, but added to the fact that I came across a certain Biblical passage yesterday it has made me think about this:
"What comes out of a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man 'unclean.'" Mark Ch 7, Vs 20-23
Okay in context it is about clean and unclean foods and ceremonial washing, but it does make you think.
