Wrong on so many levels the Watchtower leadership.
Isn't there something wrong right from the beginning when a handful of men (calling themselves the Governing Body) create teachings that they are Gods only channel of communication to Gods followers? These men are nothing but low profile high control leaders. This group is so controlling and dangerous on so many levels including the child abuse issue. These men leaders are dangerous and need to be exposed.

Narrow view
Just saw some Jws Coffeeshop, I am an ex jw they were afraid to talk to me. As a very prominent elder I found they weren't reporting to police child molestation cases, I brought these up and they will not talk to me even though I wasn't Disfellowshipped. They are so brainwashed to believe the Watchtower lying about lawsuits saying they are not true, I will in turn speak out even to some of them,they don't know what to say. Sad sad cases. They now overhear me talking to others trying to report me so they can disfellowship me. I will not play their game.God's blessing to all of you,Dal

The identifying mark is love...
What a joke! The JW's have deemed me bad association since I discovered their dirty little secrets. I'm 60 years old and what should be a wonderful time with my 7 grandchildren is not for I will spoil useful habits. I cannot even speak to them. These arrogant, evil, and self- righteous disgust me.

The Secret Elders Manual Regarding Child Abuse
Hello. Recently the elders manual that regular members are not allowed to see was leaked online. I wrote an article about what it has to say about sexual abuse and rape which is very disturbing. The link to download the manual is added in the article. Here it is: http://bk42author.hubpages.com/_2enir8o4sbqb7/hub/Victimizing-the- Victim-How-One-Religion-Handles-the-Matter-of-Rape-and-Child-Sexual- Abuse

maybe it's not too late
I filed a police report well past the statute of limitations in my state, because I had been told it can be helpful to the case of any new victims. Well, surprise, surprise, my breaking silence contributed to my attacker getting disfellowshipped recently. I assume they are responding more because of all the civil cases . It's 16 years overdue and not justice, but at least he's not under their protection anymore! So report your attackers, even if it's too late for you...you may indirectly help someone else!

How could he not be responsible???
I just heard William Lynn had his conviction of endangering children over turned....saying it is the job of parents to protect the child....even though he knew the priests conduct he sent to another parish [that did not know] and he kept quiet and did not warn anyone. Lynn knew so how could the parents protect their kids when they are not given the TOOLS (for example being told new priest was a sexual predator) Lynn knew and he knew a priest's job involved dealing with children (alter boys etc)...By not telling or warning new parish this priest was sent to he ENDANGERED CHILDREN... There is such a thing in Canada called of "vicarious liablity"...He would be held accountable here because the job description involved dealing with children...in other words protect the child.

good question Alex
Ray Franz made the interesting point that just as the Jews preferred to be under the law that dictated everything down the minutest aspects of their lives, some people today find it easier to have someone else tell them what is right and wrong rather than have to wrestle with their own individual conscience and decide for themselves. Besides those 8 men are "spirit directed" so they must know what they're doing right?

Why do we let ourselves be manipulated?
".....I just finished reading "Crisis of Conscience" by Raymond Franz, ex governing body member and nephew of Fred Franz. It's a "must read"..."CT Which makes it a "Must not read" from the older men of the Governing Body? Eight people controlling over eight million lives? Why? Why?? Why???

FREE
Two months ago I watched a tv program with my husband about JW abuse and more investigation into this issue has now convinced us that this is an UN-TRUTHFUL organization. I live in Northern Ireland and I've been a witness for over 20 years of my life. I will be writing my resignation from this demonic infested organization. My heart goes out to all those little hurt ones. WE ARE FREE.

It's a must read
I just finished reading "Crisis of Conscience" by Raymond Franz, ex governing body member and nephew of Fred Franz. It's a "must read" for anyone wanting to know the "truth" about the "truth". While he is branded an evil apostate by the society, he actually comes across as a decent , credible and highly principled person. If you cant get hold of a a copy of the book, I was able to read it free online. Packed full of information and documents that clearly show that all is not what it seems in JW world. Anyone else who has read it, what did you think of it?

What it seems like.....
Because of the lack of compassion shown to pedophile victims in different religions it seems as if image is the number one priority to religious 'leaders'. It doesn't look to me as if the concern is really about protecting God's (or Jehovah's) image, it is about business. Business first, can't hurt the business angle or take a chance with losing any kind of profits. Image matters alright, but it has nothing to do with what is truly morally and ethically correct, or even spiritually correct, it is all about protecting organizations. Religious organizations are businesses. It seems as if the businesses are number one, not the people. They can stay on the back burners, because, by all means, don't hurt business. That's what counts. Or so it seems to me. I wish I could have expressed this so much better.

God or men?
Over a hundred and forty years of 'the end is at hand' or 'the end is closer than you think', or 'the end is just around the corner'. Really?? Watch The Tower Lie!

Please don't feel embarrassed that you didn't realize the truth behind the attitude of religion and child abuse. People don't expect this kind of an attitude from Christians. It's only natural to expect that action will be taken on behalf of victims, so it's mind-boggling when nothing happens or when the religious 'leaders' seem to be acting cavalierly toward victims. It makes no sense. I think your post was great! I'm glad that I don't see God as a religion. He's separate from all the mess.

The sad truth is lay members of the Catholic church at least acknowledge that there are sex abuse wrong doings in their group. Jehovah's Witness member at every level are more interested in covering up. It's not about truth (a word they love) but it is about supporting a high control structure (some may call a cult like structure) of claiming a religion is God's organization. It's all about control of the members.

Jehovahs Witness leadership, versus Roman Catholic leadership, are both married to 'risk-management' regarding the child sex-abuse crisis?
Writing in this summer's issue of Notre Dame Magazine Mr. Salveson shares his awakening of the 'risk-management' style that his church employs in child sex-abuse cases. When reading: "In my own case, I always wondered why the bishop I wrote to in 1980 ignored my first letter to him." brought back memories when I wrote to a Bethel Elder (as he was called then) years ago regarding his actions in not protecting me as a child. Only in my case the Bethel Elder ignored both letters I mailed him. "A revelation Slowly, eventually, I figured out the reason for the lack of progress within the Church. It really was simple. I had long believed the Roman Catholic Church considered the child sex-abuse crisis to be a moral issue. So I expected clergy to care about the victims and to do the right thing. But the simple truth I had learned over time was this: Much of the Catholic leadership does not view this as a moral issue. They view it as a risk-management issue. The focus is on managing settlements, keeping the topic out of the media, telling the faithful everything is taken care of and, most of all, doing everything humanly possible to ensure none of these cases ever make it into a court of law. An institution focused on doing the right thing would admit wrongdoing, immediately remove abusive priests from ministry, embrace victims, reach out to their families, do everything possible to help them heal, and work to change laws that hide perpetrators and deny justice to victims. However, an institution focused on risk management never admits actual culpability; it protects predator priests, does the bare minimum for victims and works to keep outdated laws in place to protect perpetrators. Suddenly it all made sense. In my own case, I always wondered why the bishop I wrote to in 1980 ignored my first letter to him. I wondered why he refused to tell those pastors and other bishops supervising my perpetrator that he had been accused of sexual abuse. And why in all of those nine years of pestering the Diocese of Rockville Centre to dismiss the priest, I never received a written acknowledgement that the priest had in fact abused me. I wanted supportive, empathetic  some might call it Christian action from the Church. I had not realized they were just managing risk. To this day I still am embarrassed by how long it took me to understand this." http://magazine.nd.edu/news/40695/ Yes, Jehovah's Witness leadership can be just as ice cold as Catholic leadership.

Yes, there are boys and men who are sexually abused. When it comes to this abuse among Jehovah's Witnesses I know nothing, actually, but I have a good friend who was raped by his father as a young child and sexually abused by his mother. This person was severely effected by what these two people did to him, and it has colored his entire life. Sexual abuse is inexcusable and heinous whether committed by men or women, and the police should be notified when boys or men are abused by anyone of either gender.

First of all, Thanx for this Page :) I'd like to ask if you can make this page in more languages, especially German? Every Day I see the result of the child rape from "Zeugen Jehova". In my Job as a Pedagogic I see Psycho-Disease like Borderline, Social-Anxiety and much more ... I hope that we will find peace all over the world !

abuse
Told an elder about my brother trying to abuse me and they said if they would talk to the elders at his hall he would lose his privileges. I couldn't believe what they said. I can't believe what I have found here. The society is a mess. They are NOT doing what the Bible says. We are all victims. Keep this going. I think we need more news media on this- a lot more. I am loosing faith in this society but not in Jehovah and the bible. I still know paradise will be here. Things are bad. Please help these kids. I also think my sister in law was doing something to my niece cause she would say stuff. But am afraid to tell her mom. It would start a war. God bless these children.
