    Episode based on similarities between Scientology and Jehovah's Witnesses. Nate was raised a JW, stayed in the church for 24 years and talked about its intolerant teachings and control, ie this world is evil and you'll die with the other sinners unless you live the religion 24/7. Basically the idea of nice people knocking on doors is a charade.

    Probably on the A&E website.

    No wonder Starnes ran so much, this must be some sort of JW recruitment technique:

    My uncle is a JW and I had to witness his own son be escorted out of the father's wedding reception (new wife) because he was a former JW that left the church when he was younger.

    I tell them that story every time they knock on my door. It wraps things up quickly.

    Quarry is a good, reasonable guy.
    I pity him that he was brainwashed for so long. Sure it leaves a trauma.
    Scientology is the same crap, huge money included.

    I always liked Quarry. He was rushed into that title fight with Franklin way too soon.

    I used to work at a used bookshop and when the JWs came to town, they’d ask if we had old copies of Watchtower. Turns out that they wanted them because their founder made a bunch of prophecies that didn’t come true and they buy them up to destroy them.
    People with family members in the church would buy them to show that they’re following a false prophet. Good times.

    Yeah, it's not right to mock those with mental illnesses.

    My dad met Nate Quarry years ago in a chiropractors office in NJ. He talked to my dad about his injuries, his book, etc. My dad had no idea who he was. He told me he had met some WWE fighter named “Nate Rock” until I finally kept throwing names to him and realized it was Quarry

    I also saw Nate KTFO of some random fighter on the Florian/Gomi undercard in Charlotte years ago

    He was 3-0 in the UFC with three first round KOs. That's basically a better resume than every other fighter who got a title shot in that era.

    In the episode Nate went on to say that Robert Follis killed himself in part due to being a former JW who was excommunicated and shunned by friends and family. This was after another Follis brother had killed himself. Unbelievably sad.

    I didn't know JW's were the door knocking type, I have never seen them out in force, only Mormons on their bikes.

    In the UK they are. They knock almost every Sunday... Well, not my door anymore. They usually leave a leaflet and ask you to read it. Then they write your address and name down and ask you what you thought of it the week after.
