Jehovah's Witnesses have largest turnover of recruits,have one of the highest attrition rates of all denominations.

Reports from TIME Magazine-""An even more extreme example of what might be called "masked churn" is the relatively tiny Jehovah's Witnesses, with a turnover rate of about two-thirds.

That means that two-thirds of the people who told Pew they were raised Jehovah's Witnesses no longer are — yet the group attracts roughly the same number of converts. Notes Lugo, "No wonder they have to keep on knocking on doors

Half of all the Watchtower related news now on Jehovah's Witnesses is either obituaries or Kingdom Hall construction.

The old folks who gave everything to the WBTS are dying off left and right cause no new system ever came
The Watchtower keeps on wheeling & dealing big money real estate
80% of all the young people are leaving the JW's

These “quick-builds” have come a long way over the years. I recall the first one in our area….in Naples NY. Was it in the late 80’s? It has since been sold, and another quick-build erected on the other side of town.

I author a blog on JWs. When word filtered in that Jehovah's Witnesses were building halls this way, in only a weekend, I recall many did not believe it. There were some local members with a long-standing drywall business. They considered all that would be involved in putting up a building so quickly, and dismissed it as impossible.

The "lawsuits" comment has been posted hundreds of times on sites (including mine) that make mention of Jehovah's Witnesses. The author apparantly does not care for them.

Danny is one of the most prolific commenters I have ever seen, much more so than the lawsuit person. Do his views really hold up, or are they just his personally? I mean, there must be some reason all those halls are being built.
