Sunday July 10, 2011, ABC Primetime's host Diane Sawyer interviewed Jaycee Dugard. She was kidnapped and held captive for eighteen years by Phillip and Nancy Garrido in the backyard of their California home. It was mentioned in the interview that there was a Jehovah's Witness connection. Is The Watchtower Society aware of their connection with the Garridos?

Because Jehovah's Witnesses equate the organization with having a relationship with God, they believe it is impossible for anyone to be a Christian outside the Watchtower Society. This creates a deep rooted fear of leaving the Organization because they think they are leaving Jehovah, and a deep rooted hatred toward those who have left, convinced these ones have left God.
An ongoing malicious campaign of hate, an "us vs. them" attitude is clearly seen within this quasi-religious and spiritual supremacist group. Members believe in the superiority of their "religion" over all other religions.
What does the Watchtower Society have to say regarding their strict policies on hatred?
