Susan Gaskin, herself a former Jehovah’s Witness, now runs an informative and inspiring YouTube channel where she discusses the many shortcomings and misdeeds of the Watchtower Society. In this most recent video, the elegant and witty Ms. Gaskin discusses the Jehovah’s Witness ban on celebrating such “pagan” festivals as Christmas, and plays and comments on a recording of a couple being disfellowshipped from their congregation – and subsequently shunned by their families – for the crime of celebrating the Yuletide season.
