I talked to two little old wrinkled-as-prunes JW ladies at my door today. And I told them that their doctrines weren't so much what I minded, except that their doctrine is: unless you believe that Jesus returned invisibly in 1914, you're not saved.
But they're entitled to their doctrines. The thing that is really wrong about them, as you pointed out, is the issue of harsh control. Once you control someone's mind, you can stuff all kinds of weird or sane or whatever doctrine into it. The basic issue is control.
Any religious/doctrinal issues would be best discussed on 'Journeys'.
