This is the third part of a 4 part series exploring different religions to be released this week.
Part one can be found here:
Part two can be found here:
Part four can be found here:
This segment of the series deals with Jehova's Witnesses.
Just a warning, there is content in here that some people may find to be a bit offensive to their beliefs.
Anyway, sit back, and enjoy!
I enjoyed watching this and I found it pretty funny,
Im sure that most people can relate to this and it was a nice song choice at the end
9/10 and 4/5
I was originally thinking of using Knockin' on Heaven's Door, but it just didn't seem like it would work as well.
A little gruesome..
Funny joke, but really a little generic. That's about all most people know about JW's, that they knock on a lot of doors. Really the joke would have worked the same with any annoying door-to-door group, religious or otherwise. I'll give extra points for the song, it was a good choice.
It could have worked for any door to door group I suppose, but Jehovas are one of the more famous ones.
I was flipping between that song and Knockin on Heaven's Door, but decided on this one because Heaven's Door was too downbeat and sympathetic.
It had good humor, but I kinda wish it showed a little about what their beliefs are (I've always wondered what they were)
Jehova's believe that everyone who isn't a Jehova is morally tainted, which is one of the reasons they go door to door in attempts to recruit new members. Further, they believe that we are living our last days before the apocalypse. They demand total devotion from their members, otherwise shunning them. They consider the bible to be a historical dictation and the word of God.
Anyway, I know some of the basics, but you'd probably be better off asking a theologist, or going on google or wikipedia or something.
It's good to know what you're talking about
Your other two flashes were good and actually addressed the follies of Judaism and Catholicism. This one showed you have no idea what the beliefs of JW's are. Yes a lot of people hide from them...but what does that have to do with their ideals? All religion is bogus in my opinion but it also deserves to be explained in some detail if one is to do a parody of it. That being said i still look forward to your next submission.
I suppose my biggest beef with Jehova's besides their cult-ish ways is the fact that the way they attempt to inspire faith and recruit new members around them inspires far more distaste and annoyance than reverence.
Admittedly, I could have poked fun at their refusal to accept blood transfusions or their denial of military service, but those elements are not exclusively associated with Jehova's. Rather, the thing known best about them is their tendency to go door to door and wave bibles in people's faces.
So in essence, I decided that going after their lesser known tendencies, while it would have been entertaining for me, probably would not have done so much for an audience at large.
I can't tell you whether or not you're going to like part 4, but you may yet. It's different than anything I've released so far. Thanks for the review!
What everyone is thinking
That was funny. Is that what you were thinking when they came over to your house?
If I said yes, I'd probably wind up with a few cops on my doorstep rather than Jehova's Witnesses. I'll just say that it's a reflection of the general annoyance caused by their attempts to spread faith.
What to expect when you're expecting (an acceptance letter)
