27 Famous Jehovah's Witnesses

4,450 views 27 items 1 follower
List of Famous Jehovahs Witnesses ranked by fame and popularity. Jehovahs Witnesses is a Christian religion that prefers to use their own translation of the bible entitled “The New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures.” They distribute literature door-to-door and they do not celebrate birthdays or holidays. Jehovahs Witnesses also refuse blood transfusions and they will not serve in the military.

Who is the most famous Jehovahs Witness? Michael Jackson tops our list. Jackson matriarch Katherine is a practicing Jehovahs witness and she raised all of her children in the religion. Most of the Jackson's are no longer practicing, but Katherine has attempted to raise Michael Jackson's children as Jehovahs Witnesses. Recently, it was reported that Paris and Prince Michael Jackson told their grandmother that they would no longer pass out literature or go door-to-door to raise money for the religion.

“Purple Rain” musician Prince became a Jehovahs Witness in 2001, after his mother's death. Family friend and fellow Jehovahs Witness Larry Graham was a big influence on Prince during this time. It has been reported that Prince needs hip surgery, but refuses the treatment because his religion prevents him from accepting the supplemental blood needed to complete the procedure.
