Sex offender Philip Garrido used Jehovahs Witness to get early parole <snip> "...Jehovahs Witnesses take pride in converting the down-and-out, drug addicts, people down on their luck. In his study The Trumpet of Prophecy: A Sociological Study of Jehovahs Witnesses sociologist James A. Beckford *(1) theorized that people with low social attachment are more likely to accept the other-world view of a religious cult like the Witnesses. Beckford, who writes on religion and teaches at the University of Warwick, Coventry, UK, found in his 1975 book that the most likely converts to the Jehovahs Witness cult are females in their mid-20s who are dislocated from society due to a move away from their home location or through multiple child births in close succession. Similar studies of the members of the Jim Jones cult who committed suicide in the 1970s showed adherents were poor, dispossessed and looking for a new world order that Jones promised to deliver. Garrido apparently strayed from Jehovahs Witnesses to form his own religious cult. In 2007, he began blogging under various titles. One blogThe Truth Will Set You Free is eerily familiar to the insider dialogue of Jehovahs Witnesses. To those inside the JW sect, the code word for Jehovahs Witness is The Truth. Members use that bible quotation to define themselves as being in the Truth, strong in the Truth and defectors conversely as weak in the Truth. It was the religious fanaticism that caught Philip and Nancy Garrido. They were spotted handing out religious pamphlets at UCLA Berkeley by police. Under questioning, the police became suspicious of the parolee and sex-offender accompanied by children...." This article has many inaccuracies, but also some interesting insights into Garrido's cult.
