    why?
    The name Carrobie?

    On a serious note. People have been subjected to violence because of their religious, political or even football beliefs. Their gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race and who knows what else for probably as long as we have been on the planet.

    People suck. As the late great Bill Hicks said -

    We're just a virus with shoes.

    perhaps in the middle ages they could be forgiven for their ignorance, but in 2011? No
    excuses dear Noobster, none.

    What about this guy who works at the dvd store- He's got "humility" tattooed on one hand and "compassion" on the other. Clearly visible. I don't know the guy, but that sounds like a bit more than a 'virus with shoes' ...

    Thoughts?

    Doesn't the Holy Bible have the answer?

    yes, it does, but others do not accept its testimony therefore i felt it better to leave the
    question to the readers own discernment 😉

    Matthew 24:9
    “Then people will deliver YOU up to tribulation and will kill YOU, and YOU will be objects of hatred by all the nations on account of my name.

    This text is lifted is from the JW site: http://www.watchtower.org/e/bible/mt/chapter_024.htm

    The person speaking in the text is Jesus, it is HIS name he is referring to, not the name Jehovah as you are implying with your video link to Jehovah's Witnesses being persecuted. There is am important significance in that.

    I'm not labelling anyone.

    Your OP quoted the scripture about being persecuted for a name indicating that was the sole reason the Jehovah's Witnesses in the clip were being terribly abused. By implication of your organisational name and beliefs about the Godhead, you are stating that the persecution was for the name of Jehovah. I am questioning that as the scripture say we will be persecuted for the name of Jesus, not the name Jehovah.

    no it doesn't say anything about any names, other than quote a scripture that
    demonstrates that Christians would be persecuted because of Christ's name. In fact
    all my post states is that it is a memorial celebration in Bulgaria.

    Its hard to say, I dont speak Bulgarian and who knows what motives those persons
    had. I merely included the scripture in the title because it seemed to me to be a
    possibility.

    An unlikely one I would suggest.
