Irish Catholic is my own yardstick for religious lunacy and damage to children, especially girls. I have to say the JWs come pretty close to that. Shit, at least the Irish get to celebrate that day you took your first breath, became a separate human being, and met your parents for the first time. That's a pretty big deal, especially to kids.
