To MT
It doesn't matter if your spelling or english is so good. Your message was quite clear. These people need to reassess their attitudes, their policies, and their changing policies. If these people are inspired by the one true God then why does the one true God change his mind so often? We aren't talking little things either. I post as much of this as I can on MSN:this week in breaking news and I'm looking for other news oriented places to post them as well. Just one more way to ge the word out. I make it a point to tell someone every day about Silent Lambs and the JWs. You'd be surprised how easy it is to strike up a conversation about it. Finally, all that magazine pedaling can be put to good use. Finally, to you MT. You're a fantastic friend to have. The people of Denmark and all the Silent Lambs are lucjy to have you around to champion their cause. Blessings to you!

trying to understand
It's not possible to understand. They can not at all have Gods spirit. I was a JW for 8 years ago, and even though this should be as clear af crystal, that they are so wrong in the abuse cases, I still have problems to understand that it could'nt be the thruth. And it's kind of hunting me. So when I can feel that it's hard to understand, how easy is it to them, to manipulate the members which still is in the organisation. I did'nt know anything about all the abuse, while I was a JW. And those who still are JW, and have heard a litle about the cases from the news, are not aloud to talk about it inside. And they believe on the lies, that come from the organisation. So the phedofiles (hope I have spelled it right, I am from denmark and dont write so god in english) :) have all the space they want, to continuing abusing the children. And it's simply not to understand. You are absolutely right. JW in Denmark are even saying that silent lamb, is so fullfilled with lies. I just have had a bad discussion with a member, because he wrote: When I saw Dorthe Tveitis name on the side, it was enough to tell me that silent lamb are full with lies. And it's because Dorthe Tveiti can'nt proofe the hurrible abusing, her and her sister and cussin have been through. And in all the churches in Denmark, they have been saying that Dorthe Tveiti is a big lier. But I know Dorthe and her sister, as well as if they were my sisters, both of them. And I just know they are telling the thruth. And its frustrating that they can'nt profe it. So I say to my self, how on earth can I still believe that they have God's spirit? It just can'nt be Gods will, that the abused children must wait for God to take the evil away, and while they are doing that, they have to look at the abuser, and know that he can do it again and again and again and so on. mt

Trying to understand
Hello, I am trying so hard to understand the mindset of the Jehovah's Witness "higher ups", trying to understand how the WTBTS and the elders can claim that they are representing God while they protect pedophiles and punish the victims of pedophiles. No matter how hard I try I cannot fathom their mindset, their so-called "reasoning" about pedophilia amongst JWs. It just about makes my head feel like it is going to explode! There is no reasoning. It is just plain cruel what the WTBTS is doing and how it is leading and influencing the elders, who in turn deal bizarrely with pedophilia. The poor "rank and file" are having their heads messed with so much, they don't seem to be able to see what is really going on with regard to pedophilia! This is just plain crazy! It really IS enough to make your head feel as though it must burst trying to understand. It is NOT Christian to cover up for pedophiles and turn on the victims. How can these people POSSIBLY think they are behaving as Christians?! I could go on and on about the bizarreness of it all, the coldness, callousness of it all. Because these people who see themselves as truly Christian have become calloused toward chidren and teenagers who have been molested. They seem to be impervious to the pain of these kids! I am sorry for rambling on so much, but I keep thinking here about the way M.A.N.'s daughter was spoken to, the way she was treated by these "Christians" after she abused, and yet her mother stuck with the religion and kept her daughter in it, too. It's all just so crazy!

The New Golden Calf
Hi. My name is Kathy. I cannot stand Jehovah's Witnesses. If they are in my neighborhood, I call the police and file a police report. When I came across the silent lambs web site, I was completely distraught. The child abuse program that Jehovah's Witnesses pursue reminds me of when Moses came down the mountain with the ten commandments and found the Israelites worshipping the golden calf. A purely disgusting thought. No wonder Moses was angry with the Israelites. Jehovah's Witnesses/Watchtower are allowing this disgraceful conduct amongst their leadership. God will destroy these people for their badness and their golden calf.

Re: Denmark court case
A newsletter was released here on SL about the Denmark court case concerning the WT's lawsuit and abuse victims. Silentlambs released this material on the internet and you can access this information on the home page of the website for full details on the court case and newspaper articles. There are many fine points being made and those who post here or read the posts will learn much if they consider the information being posted. Thank you.

Thank you so much
Thank you so much, for bringing this information, about Ekstra Bladet and their loose in december 2006. And I know I am talking in behave of my friends, who is suffering so much thiese days. They are going through a very toff time right now. So I am very greatfull, that thiss is coming out, also in this part of your world. Bill Bowen, I just wants to tell you, that you are doing a big difference, (hope its the right way I write this), here in our part of the world. All though, the members of Jehovah's witnesses, are telling me that it is an ugly web site. But there are so many people, who are using the sad stories, and the other evidence, that you are writing about, when they are telling others of abusing, here in Denmark. So thank you very much. A big help to many people. My regards MT

That is a quote from Steve's January 14th statement about the Watchtower Society of the Jehovah's Witnesses. Yes, only prisons need watchtowers; the JW organization is a mental prison for everyone involved in it. Thanks for posting your thought, Steve. It truly says it all and explains why pedophiles thrive there.

Report those who PROTECT pedophiles
This site mentions quite a few people by name who have been victims of the abuse of JW. Companies that willfully do illegal activities, such as embezzelement of company funds. The CEO is held responsible and is likely to face a judicial hearing. The name of the CEO is made known to the public and to the press. Likewise, the names of those who PROTECT pedophiles should also be made known to the public and the press. Those names are heads of the WTBTS.

In the name of our heavenly father, where there are lies, deception, and a tract that misleads 6 million people, that in turn mislead the whole entire inhabited earth with this message, that they are a clean organization that they follow and that they are not guilty of the gross sins, Incest, but the rest of the world is, is not only a lie, but a serious deception that all will be held accountable for responsible for, and judged for... there is no excuse for abuse, no pardon for this is no mere error and cannot be swept under a carpet, like dust.God isnt stupid, everyone will have the chance to hear the word, hear the truth, judgement is unescapable, and i wont give up on God, he is just and he is love. He will direct his people to expose evil, and wickedness. I urge you who love our creator, to write call make a petition, sign it, let them hear your voice, the voice of truth. God is with...and he will guide you in your sincere efforts to speak the truth and help those victems, Believe in something good, Good will happen, Believe in something Bad, more bad will continue...dont stop the fight to do what is wright, because in fact you are fighting for God when you do this, and you are fighting against Satan, ...so be strong and believe you can make a difference. and do it. peace..and may God bless you allways.....catherine manna

Watchtower Men Exposed for protecting Pedophiles
It is my God-ordained responsibility to tell the world of people who protect pedophiles. SL REPLY---------------------------------------------------- We agree that it is everyones responsibility to report known pedophiles to the proper authorities. However, due to liability issues we can not post specific names of those thought to be or known to be harboring or aiding pedophiles. There is a category on our home page where you can list known pedophiles and the congregations they are currently or previously known to have served in. We strongly suggest that if you have information that the men you listed are engaging in such activities you contact your local police department immediately.

WTBTS -- $111 million dollars and growing
"During the 2006 service year, Jehovah's Witnesses spent over $111 million in caring for special pioneers, missionaries, and traveling overseers in their field service assignments." -- 2007 Yearbook of Jehovah's Witnesses. That sure is a lot of spending for a religion that tells us that we should simplify our life. Did Jesus Christ spend that much during his ministry? What was Jesus' focus while he was in his ministry? Would Jesus approve of this type of spending? This religion seems to have lost control of what the most important thing in life is. If the Jehovah's Witnesses have spent over $111 million dollars, they must have made over $111 million dollars. Do you know of many companies that are non-profit companies that spend that type of money? The company that I work for made $20 million dollars less and they are a for-profit company. I find it hard to figure out why the Jehovah's Witnesses are a non- profit company. When this religion points the finger at other religions gouging their practioners of money, they are no different. Many articles in their magazines have pointed out ways the Jehovah's Witnesses can donate to the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society. These types of articles were never mentioned in the Watchtower 50 - 60 years ago. The United States government needs to recognize that the Jehovah's Witnesses are a "for-profit" company and tax them accordingly.

JW Mental Illness
I concur with SG on there being a prevalence of Mental Illness among JW's. I have personally known several brothers and at least one sister that have either committed suicide or attempted it. The Elders dont even acknowledge mental illness in the ranks. It's referred to as "Depression". That one buzz-term covers everything from Manic-Depression (Bipolarism) to paranoia to Psycotic behavior, as well as to simple depression. That's why when Elders are mentally wacko, the other Elders dont delete him or try and stop his predations. For the rank and file "Brothers" it's even a bit chic to be depressed. It shows you're sensative and usually gets you some attention and the rare compassion that JW's ever show one another. I beleive at least twenty to twentyfive percent of JW's have some form of mental illness or at least depression. This is hard to diagnose by outsiders looking at us as there will be quick denials to all but elders. The Elders usually actively discourage professional help and in their "Shepherding" sessions (Confessionals to the Elders) they ferret out/glean details about everyone's weaknesses, including the taking of anti-depressants. They usually try their hardest to get the JW to quit anti-depressants, usually with tragic results. I know of one young adult that has gotten off of them due to the Elder's urging and this person has went through sheer agony. I fully predict that this person will probably commit suicide in a year or two unless he/she starts to see the utter stupidity of uneducated Elders practicing medicine. When I say uneducated, I mean in their 30's and home-schooled. And it's these guys who are micro-managing everyone's lives down to the tiniest detail. I wont go through all the dozens of things that can make JW's depressed, I think other sites do that quite well, but the sheer pressure of Elders bearing down on all of us JW's and making everyone fearful can contribute mightily to it. The love in the congs has really dried up, it's nothing but an atmosphere of fear now. Our top leadership has failed to promote love in the ranks and the lower leadership has picked up on that and has decided that fear will work nicely.

LIKE OLD AMERICA
I was thinking the other day about all of this. The Governing Body of JWs is like old America where incest was kept a family secret, children were raped by relatives, women by their husbands and all was to be kept "Shsh! shsh!" The person who revealed it was ostrasized and considered a trouble maker. Also, education was frowned upon. In some communities, talking to outsiders was considered dangerous. The Society is a product of old America. Also, going to a psychiatrist was discouraged and mental illness was blamed solely on demon possession. Just think of how many shcitzaphrenics injured themselves or someone else because they listened to the Governing Body and did not get the proper medical help. Think of all the people who may have commited suicide from depression.

I only recently found this web-site, and was shocked about the information about child abuse. But then I came to think about a TV program sent in swedish television in -04. Then i suddenly remembered and saw the connection between Silentlambs and the WT. At the time I could not really deal with it, put it back in to my mind.No I know! I live in Scandinavia, and there are no information in any paper or web-sites about Silentlambs. At least not in Norway. Are they having the same problems as the rest of the world or not? I do wonder.. Anyway, keep up the good work!

The world needs more people like you!
It gives me great hope to see your organization taking on the Watchtower Society and calling them out on their insane child endangering doctrines. They must be exposed, and stopped. Silentlambs.org is a bold voice of reason, a fountainhead of information, and also a beacon of hope to those kids who have been subjected to the worst kind of abuse, fostered by twisted Watchtower world. Only prisons need watchtowers. Thank you so much, Steve, proud parent and WT watcher.

Posted sign to direct people to SilentLambs.org website
I have found it a great success by posting signs in malls and grocery stores to the silentlambs.org web site. The following message is being posted on the sign: "Learn more about Jehovah's Witnesses...www.silentlambs.org." See its very simple, not wordy at all. Grocery stores are good because people need to go to them. Imagine how many people go to grocery stores everyday.

Greetings M.A.N. I have some god news here from Denmark. JW lost a case against our news paper Ekstra Bladet. They went to the court angains them, and wanted them ponnished for injurier. Hope you understand my bad english. In the courtroom, one of the leaders, had to admit that they did,nt exclude members who had abused a child, but that they did exclude members for much lesser actions. It also came forward, that there are 23.000 cases of abusing in their archives. They loose. I could'nt agree more. No witnesses on earth. Maby this is a step more. mt---------------------------------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------ silentlambs reply-Would it be possible to provide any links to the news story about this win? If not could you provide a brief synopsis of what happened and we will put it up on the website. silentlambs

News
First, you are welcome Herbert. I hope things work out for you. I just received the newsletter about the Canadian situation. It mentioned that the authorities found the JW elders "uncooperative". Why are none of us surprised at this? Shouldn't the elders rush to make sure justice is done and that the victim is receiving professional care. (I don't even want to comment on how the abuser got off, I need to keep my blood pressure down.) If the fact that child abuse occurs so much in the WT doesn't bring this cult down, perhaps what will do it is how the elders handle abuse cases. From that point of view, that can be even more disgusting than the fact that the abuse rate is so high among JW's in the first place. But then when you have elders and the WT playing games, stalling, lying, misleading the media, and all the other nonsense, then maybe this will seal their fate. One thing we can always ask them is if Jesus would do things this way. I keep hearing that Jehovah is using the WT no matter what they do. My question in return is "Even if they acted just like the Nazis?" Their answer would probably be "Wait on Jehovah". I'm not waiting any longer while innocent children are harmed. It's time for the WT to go. Permanently.

Re: My previous post / to MAN
Hi, M.A.N. thank you for our kind and considerate words; all the more so since I know from your posts that you suffer from abuse in your family yourself. No, my mother didn't know either. My father is dead, too. And my sister went to therapy, so often that her husband, my brother-in-law, once said to me they might as well have been able to build a house from the money they spent on her therapy. Even if I had known I could not have done something about it as a 9 year old boy. And we both suffered from that father's abuse; she sexually, I myself physically. So we later developed the same disorder (borderline). My only hope is that she does not mean me personally, but the circumstances I stand for, the town, the house where I live (whoch now is my own). I really would like to see her again after 24 years, and to learn to know my niece and nephews. Greetings to you and all the lambs, Herbert

Can anyone help?
Is anyone able to help me with my sister? I was the only Witness in our family, but I left the WT movement for good 15 years ago over doctrinal issues. My sister still bears a grudge against us (my mother and me); she was sexually abused at age 5 by our father, and it came out only 25 years later, when she told us. She thinks we should have konwn about it. But how could we - my mother had her own marital problems (later she divorced that man), and I was only nine at that time. My sister didn't visit my mother a single time when she suffered from Alzheimer's and had to be nursed, she even didn't come to her funeral. She only refers to mother as "that woman". How can I win my sister over again, after all that happened already nearly 50 years ago? By the way, my sister is happily married and has four (grown-up) children; I was never married. Warm regards, Herbert from Germany

praing to God
Yes you are right. nobody can dictate what you may do or not may do. Now I have no problem at all to pray to God. But it took a long time before I could do that, because I really believed as I was told, that if you leave JW, you are not allowed to talk to God anymore. He will not listen to you. After 5 - 6 years I started to pray. It felt good. And I feel that God now is listening and answering my prayers, in a way I did'nt feel while I was a member. But all their words is stocked in the head. And it's difficult to let them control the thoughts. But it help's a lot, and it's getting better. But it takes time.
