Description

Amber Scorah was a third generation Jehovah's Witness raised to believe that the Armageddon was imminent. As a teenager she was shunned from her religious community for having sex with her boyfriend. Scorah went on to marry an elder in the church, and she and her husband traveled to China as missionaries. But gradually doubt began to set in. Scorah speaks with Terry Gross about her decision to leave her marriage and her religion and start over. Her memoir is 'Leaving the Witness.'

Also, John Powers reviews the HBO series 'Years and Years.'

Mormons, J Witnesses and Scientologists are all insane. Shun them. Ridicule them.

I was raised in the great Millerite tradition with Seventh Day Adventists on one side of my family and Jehovah's Witness on the other side. The JW side is like a cult. You are with them or not!
