Jehovah's Witness Funerals

Post by Christiana on Thu Nov 19, 2009 1:49 am

OK, I am gonna say right off that I am not a Jehova's Witness and I am in no way an expert on their beliefs or customs...and I'm not aiming to disrespect anyone who is a JW in any way, shape, or form (especially if this info is wrong). If this info is not accurate and someone else knows more facts, please do share that information.

I was just skimming around tonight on Google and I keep coming across things that catch my eye. These bits were from various sources that I just copied and pasted into Notepad as I hunted further. I don't have the sources. But I found some interesting information that, if factual, seems to me to support the hoax. So here's what I found to be interesting.

1. There may or may not be an open casket. The Congregation Elder conducts the service and delivers a talk, which may be tape recorded. Cameras or video equipment, however, are not permitted.


As I recall, there were quite a few cameras at the funeral, right? And even though MJ might not be a devout JW, he was raised as one and of course mama Katherine sure is. So that seems odd that she would allow the cameras to me.

2. They also don't believe in what are considered "unscriptural funeral customs, such as wakes, pouring of libations, talking to and making requests of the dead, ceremonious observances of funeral anniversaries, and other customs based on the belief that something in a person survives death."

Um, remember the Memorial? And the "after party" of the funeral? Weren't those technically considered wakes?

3. J.W.s believe that when you die, you are DEAD until the resurrection. Your spirit is as dead as the body until the two are reunited at the resurrection. With that belief there is quite a bit of "grieving" for the totally dead person. So death carries more weight for them, than for many other Christians.

And we all know how painfully obvious their grief has been, right?

4. The funeral usually takes place within a week after death.

That didn't quite happen, did it?

OK, again, I know MJ may not be a devout JW, but Katherine is. And I just think there are some things that she would not waiver on where a funeral is concerned. Am I just reaching too much here? These things just don't add up if MJ is really dead.

good finding! I also think altough Michael was probably no longer a JW his mother and most of the family still is. so I think it would be normal to held the ceremony like the JW would do. also it is, in my opinion, kind of disrespectful to videotape the funeral and everything so thats very strange anyway.
Also the absent grief, we discussed this a lot... no comment, its obvious

Thanks, CHRISTIANA for the JW info. But in Michael's case, religion doesn't have any connection - only MONEY. So let's say that the family is of JW religion but as we all know they set aside religion for whatever their secret agenda$$$ are.

I read somewhere regarding Islam, Jermaine used Islam to regain his status/fame and he was trying to influence Michael to convert, too (where some of the Islam religion members say he did - which I doubt). That's when Tohme Tohme came into the picture, IMO.

Religious belief or not, I think everybody is after getting a piece of Michael.
