The goal of Jehovah's Witnesses is to knock on as many doors, and annoy as many people, as possible, by selling their religion door-to-door and distributing religious brochures. They do not celebrate holidays, since they consider all holiday celebrations, even birthdays, to be pagan in nature. They also believe that 1914 was the beginning of the End Times, which (theoretically) continue to this day, marked by the invisible presence of Jesus Christ. Like most Conservatives, they reject homosexuality, abortion, and any sexual relationships outside marriage. Yet, they don't even vote and are apolitical.
