About 1,200 people die each year because of this dope's misreading of the Bible - 2019-03-11
This is Nathan Homer Knorr. He was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania in 1905, and by the age of 18 he was so dedicated to his faith he was volunteering at the Watch Tower headquarters of the Jehovah's Witnesses in Brooklyn, New York.
He never went to college. He never got any medical education.
Instead, Knorr gradually worked his way up in the JW organization until, in 1942, he became its third president, a position he held until his death in 1977. He's celebrated today for overseeing a huge amount of growth, particularly with outreach overseas. He grew the Brooklyn world headquarters, and is remembered for holding the biggest ever JW gathering, some 235,000 Witnesses at Yankee Stadium and the Polo Grounds in 1958.
