JW SISTER INDICTED CHILD RAPE
MURFREESBORO  A mother accused of raping her two children multiple times when she lived here more than 10 years ago was indicted by a grand jury this week on 38 sexually-based offenses. Indictments issued against Angela Elizabeth Montgomery, now of Portland, Ore., show police have identified two new victims in the case, and that investigators have evidence Montgomery tried to coerce two witnesses during the Murfreesboro Police Departments investigation into her alleged criminal activities. Montgomery, who is now 50, was indicted this week on 20 counts of child rape, six counts of rape and 12 counts of incest. She also faces two counts of coercing a witness to a crime, according to court documents. She was initially charged with two counts of child rape by Murfreesboro Police Detective Wayne Lawson in late August, after her two children gave the detective detailed statements about rapes and sexual assaults they suffered at the hands of their mother when they lived in Murfreesboro more a decade ago. New charges returned by the grand jury indicate Montgomery may have committed more sexual crimes against at least two other children as recently as 2009. Three of the victims in the case have the same last name, court documents show. Lawson launched his investigation in mid-January of this year after two of Montgomerys children, now a 21-year-old man and 15-year-old girl, approached him with information on her actions. Montgomery turned herself into the Rutherford County Adult Detention Center Aug. 21, after Lawson obtained warrants for her arrest on two counts of child rape. She was freed from the jail on $10,000 bond shortly after she was booked. Police said at that time they were suspecting more charges and more victims to come forward in the case. MPD spokesman Kyle Evans, when contacted about the possibility of even more victims on Friday, said the department doesnt typically discuss ongoing criminal prosecutions once the adjudication process has begun. An attempt to reach Montgomery for comment Friday afternoon was unsuccessful. She is scheduled to appear in Rutherford County Circuit Court Dec. 17 for an arraignment.

shunning while protecting child molesters
Today again I was shuned by a JW whose wife divorced him because he had an affair with a younger lady from the hall!I am a former Elder who knew Child molestation was being hidden not reported to Police Here in Qualicum Beach ,Vancouver Island B.C Canada. Some years ago, I could no longer stand it so I left, and celebrate my leaving it! I have a wonderful relationship with God and feel his Love,The JWS feel I am spiritually dead. In their fanatic way they feel they have judgement higher than The Lord!Maybe one day they will wake up!

Big Australian Enquiry
Not sure whether it is common knowledge for all on this website but the other day it was announced that the Australian government is going to begin an enquiry which is expected to last a couple of years, into child molestation amongst church organisations and institutions dealing with children. It has been reported that it will not just involve the actual pedophiles but there will also be an exposing of any coverups. Any Australian affected ex- Witnesses should seriously consider this. They are currently asking victims to come forward now.

getting ready to help a girl who'se father not only molested her but myself as well.
I grew up JW, and in my congregation one of the "elders" loved to touch my body. Even in front of people he did it like he was hugging me or something. He would grab me in certain parts. I cannot for sure say that he got in my clothes. I just have a horrible memory of him. Now, this week I found out that his grown daughter is in a mental institution because of her dad. He has denied everything and made it look like she was just crazy. And therefore she is locked up. I am going to help this young lady. I am going to get her out of there. My sister who is still a JW told me about what was going on and all I could do is cry so hard. I want to be her witness. I myself have been institutionalized several times. I have a good therapist, he has helped me to overcome so much. Now it is all staring me in the face again. But like I said, I don't care, that girl needs me and I will do anything to help her. Thank you for the work that you do. May God continue to help you. Sincerely, KJP

Great work silentlambs
Thinking back on all the years of my life wasted trying to live as a JW, meetings , field service, priveleges etc. Career and family forgone, I can only now shake my head and ask myself "how did I got sucked into that?". Like most other religions, their dogmatism and self righteousness has completely poisoned the simple christian love of the bible. Reading through all the cases of child abuse collated together here on silentlambs, it's obvious the Organization is led by a bunch of hypocritical deluded old men who put themselves above the interests of vulnerable children. What would Jesus say? Mathew 15;8,9 comes to mind. With this recent court case and others that will surely follow, the TRUTH will be revealed, Mathew 10;26

I had father who molested and raped me and when he was done his best friend filled in until I was about 11 or so. I carried so much burden and feeling of guilt cause I was Told it was I who seduced them... when all was discovered I was 14 n my mother had no clue what to do all she knew was the religion and theses sick elders we considered family but knew everything they covered these people for years and I am glad that they have been uncovered n exposed....

NEW BOE on ABUSE
I'm sorry, I don't write in English, I'm French. Bonjour, Je suis française, si je suis sur votre site aujourd'hui, c'est grâce à une recherche sur les témoins de Jéhovah sur wikipedia. En effet, je viens de perdre un membre de ma famille devenu témoin de Jéhovah. Il était malade, il avait des problèmes cardio-vasculaire, puis ensuite, le cancer du colon avec stases au foie et au rein. A cause de diverses opérations, il devait être transfusé, mais son refus d'accepter les transfusions l'a conduit à la mort. Sa peur d'être exclus, sa peur de l'excommunication, sa peur de perdre la promesse de paradis, tout cela fait qu'aujourd'hui il repose au cimetière. Les témoins de Jéhovah et leurs doctrines sectaires et abusives ont enlevé un être cher à ma famille. Bravo pour votre action contre toutes formes de violence faites à des êtres humains, femmes et enfants, étant les plus faibles. Avec mes amitiés. Gabrielle, de Paris FRANCE.

horrified
Sirs: I have been reading all those experiences as to how many have been abused by those pigs that call themselves christians. It is unbelievable that such abuse takes place under the name of God. What galls me is the fact that they are protected by more pigs in Brooklyn, NY. How in the world can they say that they are "God's Organization" when they act like animals? It shocks me to no end. Oh, yes. I was one of them for 40 years and an elder for 35 years until I got fed up with their crap. They are the worse hypocrites in the world. They put on a good show, but are wolves and dangerous. Don't trust them. They will stab you in the back quicker then you can imagine. They are phonies. They look for innocent ones to study the Bible (or rather book study) with you. Books written by more pigs in NY. Stay away from these people. They are deceived. Nothing but a cult of the worse kind.

When is a fine line, worth crossing?
I was a witness for over 20 yrs. & was also being sexually and physically abused by my father. A witness in very good standing. Auxiliary pioneer, so over-prepared for every meeting, sang out with a beautiful voice, all the Kingdom songs. All anyone chose to see and in some cases admire, was this well spoken "brother" and his so well behaved children. Even after physical altercations with Elders, which always happened, not a call was made to the police. Not a call was made, fearing the well being of two young girls and a boy. No, as long as you look and play the part, and don't rock the boat, Everlasting life is yours! B.S.! Time for secrets to be brought out into the light!

Truth99 - Sept. 29
Welcome Truth99. It is what it is and now you know. Let me commend you on your research. You did GREAT!!! It tore me apart sitting in a congregation meeting listening to the Catholic bashings of child abuse when it was going on in the JW religion also. Shame on them! I feel that since God created all of us in His own image, with minds to think for ourselves, what a pity Jehovah's Witness are not allowed to do such. If that ain't a CULT, then what it? God created us all but the separation came when people started elevating themselves higher than others -- pecking order, or rank and file, if you will.

comment on 2Tim 3:16 and more
I have been with the JW's for almost 30 years. Then, due to personal circumstances I missed a lot of meetings for two years and missed filling in the so called TIME SHEET. For the next year or two I read up on different religions of the world, the philosophy, the theology, etc and also works and writings of humanitarians. The fellow JW were curious as to why I was not showing up at meetings. On different occasions I said that I do not agree totally as to what the great WT writing committee says, eg. on blood issue, on transplant, on mixed marriages, on putting down other religions as pagans, as claiming that WT society has the ABSOLUTE TRUTH, and when they go wrong, they use the scripture 'the light gets brighter' as an excuse! The sheep treat the WT society as INSPIRED BY GOD'S WORD, which is totally wrong, since the WT society only says they have an UNDERSTANDING OF THE SCRIPTURES. If they have an understanding of the Bible, why put down other denominations who follow the Bible? Who gives them the right to say the WT society understanding is 100 per cent right! About 2 TIM 3:16 which states "all scripture is inspired by God... I debated that this statement by Paul does not exclude scripture of OTHER RELIGIONS. Having an open mind, as to all honest hearted people who are doing spiritual and humanitarian works for making this world a better place, and that to LOOK DOWN ON OTHER RELIGIONS is like saying the GOD THE ALMIGHTY has give the MONOPOLY only to the WT society to interpret and spread god's message. I have been shunned by fellow JW friends with whom I used to eat, mingle, gave a lot of my personal time to their needs,and now they TREAT ME AS IF THEY DO NOT KNOW ME!! What a shame, they treat me as an enemy, but JESUS said "love even your enemies... THEY have treated me worse than they would treat their dog as a pet. I pray,that they SEE THE LIGHT. g

Guam Victims of childhood sexual abuse
'Guam survivors of childhood sexual abuse' - in March of 2013 your two-year window to file a civil action will end. In March 2011 Guam enacted a new law that allows victims of childhood sexual abuse a two-year window to file a civil action-even if in the past you were told that, because of a statute of limitations, you couldn't.

Appreciate finding that Silent Lambs is making progress in helping sexually abused former members of the W T. Yes, it is very sad when family members continue to support the WT against their own. To the harm of those remaining faithful to WT and those disfellowshipped or shunned, excommunicated. Please keep on helping the abused with the blessings of our One and Only Universal GOD. May the righteous UNITE for the good of everyone everywhere.

The Truth? Is this really an organization belonging to God?
"As we have heretofore stated, the great jubilee cycle is due to begin in 1925. At that time the earthly phase of the kingdom shall be recognized.... Therefore we may confidently expect that 1925 will mark the return of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and the faithful prophets of old..." J. F.

M.A.N. from Jersey/Florida Sunday, August 12, 2012

Hi to All
Today's an okay health day, so I thought I'd check in. I wish I could answer all the comments here but unfortunately that is impossible for the time being. PCW: I'd like to thank you for your kind words. And I hope your health is better than mine seeing we are the same age. "Time and unforeseen circumstances", or something like that. I really need to dig out an ACCURATE version of the Bible, not the fictional comic book on the WT CD's. There is so much to say about the WT that I think I should look into starting a blog to supplement the comments here. As some of you know, I moved from New Jersey to Florida in 2005 to start a new life and to care for my aged father. (He hates JW's, so at least I'm safe from being preached to every day. The few times they knocked, he sent me to the door with a smile, knowing I'd give them hell. One elder 2 years ago (they don't let just anyone visit anymore, they know who I am, the "East Coast Apostate"), gave the standard BS when I said I was disgusted with the degree of pedophilia in the WT and was writing a book on it. He said, "There is child abuse in ALL religions". I told him the rate for JW's was many times that of the general population and would he like to see my college research, for which I received a 98.5 GPA. Of course he refused, seeing that those in the "TRUTH" run from the truth whenever possible. (It still amazes me that they have the audacity to call themselves "The Truth". I love the saying, "There are none so blind as those who WILL not see." If you're born blind, that is a tragedy. But if a blind person is offered sight at no cost and refuses, he also needs to be offered a brain and a heart, for this indicates severe mental illness. As proof, I ask, "Did anyone whom Jesus cured ever search him out to curse him or beat him up for doing that cure?" I highly doubt it. I wish you a happy and healthy retirement, whenever you do so. I'm sorry to read of new cases and stories, but I know this will continue until the WT is destroyed and the leaders put in prison. And when they do go to jail, you can bet the WT will print several articles about "our poor loyal brothers being persecuted just like Jesus was". Knowing that prisoners hate child molesters, I think they will receive more than "persecution". Karma is a b*tch. I'm looking into suing the WT in the near future on behalf of my daughter and other victims. Even if I lose, the bad press I can generate with my contacts, Internet sites now being set up, and my willingness to do the writing, will certainly hurt them. They cannot keep out of trouble forever by throwing money at the problem or threatening to sue those of us who accuse them of wrongdoing. As most of you know, I fear nothing, not God, not the Devil, and I certainly don't fear the "doddering dozen" who now make up the GB. To Shane: The son of the "pig" who molested my daughter came to our home with his wife and asked us not to press charges. He actually said if our child was just one year older, it would only have been a misdeamor. First, it's statutory rape in any case and secondly, Why should a rapist be "saved" with imaginary loopholes? I had police officers and even a few JW elders tell me if anyone molested THEIR child, they'd kill him even if it meant life in prison. What does THAT tell you?? To Alex: The NWT Bible is garbage, pure and simple. Franz didn't even know the alphabets for the languages involved. No Bible scholar takes the WT Bible seriously. Living in Florida now, we don't need heat, but you people up North might use all WT publications in your fireplaces or outhouses. That's all the value they have. What a waste of trees. I will leave you with a few statistics. One out of four females will be sexually abuse/raped before their 18th birthday. (95% of these victims will know their attacker: father, brother, uncle, family doctor, teacher, ELDER, MINISTERIAL SERVANT, etc.) And one out of three women will be molested or raped sometime in their life before they die. These are incredibly disturbing statistics. I will try to stay in touch here. My best to all as usual. M.A.N. from Florida.

My kids too...
Yes My kids were sexually abused by a 'perfect' brother. He is jail for them and a lot of others. If you think your life can ever be the same after this you are wrong, and I have to ask what is the % of sex predators that come out of JW compared to other religions? If it is the same then the 'truth' is a failure. If it is worse then what the hell is wrong with the thinking the WTS pushes onto it's people? If it is less then what is the WTS doing about it apart from saying one thing and doing the other?

It's been an overwhelming journey, words in any language fail to be able to express my gratitude to your organization, belief to know what's right from wrong. Here a wave of healing and honesty is consuming the general public. We mourn the loss of Mr John Pirona, his legacy will change the Catholic church for ever more. Greetings and blessings for all the wonderful hearts that help the truth to be seen, heard and felt. The power of peace across the world. The central coast of NSW! Australia

Religion and double standards
Don't pass the collection plate but fight for their estate: "An Ontario lawyer and lay minister with the Jehovahs Witness church has received a tongue-lashing from a judge for failing to tell a former client who left part of his estate to the church about his own role with them. Orangeville, Ont. lawyer Daniel Pole helped Arthur Sawdon form an investment company in the Cayman Islands during the 1990s. In 2006, he also updated Sawdons will and executed a transfer of his 75 per cent holding in the company to the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Canada, the Jehovahs Witness churchs legal arm." http://www.canadianlawyermag.com/legalfeeds/985/Judge- reprimands-lawyer-for-failing-to-disclose-connection-to- church.html#comments

NWT
The NWT is the anonymous work of the New World Bible Translation Committee. Jehovahs Witnesses claim that the anonymity is in place so that the credit for the work will go to God. Of course, this has the added benefit of keeping the translators from any accountability for their errors and prevents real scholars from checking their academic credentials. http://www.gotquestions.org/New-World-Translation.html
