Reactions to Jehovah’s Witnesses at Disney, otherwise known as the happiest place on earth

In California, the Watchtower’s Jehovah’s Witnesses are allowed to set up their ‘witnessing’ tables with absolutely nothing Disney can do about it due to Pruneyard Shopping Center v. Robins, a 1980 Supreme Court case that found that discriminately preventing public campaigning or proselytizing at private shopping centers violates free speech. You’ll also find them set up witnessing at the DMV.

 “That’s pretty lame. JWs, and not just noting a few bad apples, have a very toxic outlook on the world, and how they treat family members with spiritual interests that may differ from JW stories or legends or w/e. Definitely not family friendly.”

Another Disney guest gave their personal experience at the park,

One has approached my husband in front of the Lego store. There was no table nearby. That wasn’t a good experience since his family’s had bad experiences with their religion. It was very triggering for him. He had just lost an uncle/mentor who underwent a major surgery that resulted in complications. The uncle was Jehovah’s Witness and his family refused a blood transfusion due to religion.

After first saying seeing them didn’t bring back the fondest memories, another former ex-Jehovah’s witness shared their perspective of gratitude for California’s extra protections so everyone may share their views.

Yeah those idiots think they need to share their experiences and try to talk you into their way of thinking for all of their religious ideas. They have no idea that their ideas are a false reality of life.
I hate them most but all religions are a tool of the devil. These people can fukkk off and if they approach me I will lay into them Hard.
