Hervorragend!
Ich hoffe,jemand hier kann Deutsch lesen,bzw.übersetzten. Durch einen Tv-Bericht wurde ich auf Eure Seite aufmerksam. Ich dachte immer,die drei Fälle von Kindesmissbrauch,die mir bei Zeugen Jehovas bekannt waren,seien Ausnahmen.Durch Euch und durch mein Nachforschen merkte ich,dass das Gegenteil der Fall ist. Macht weiter!Eure Arbeit ist so wichtig,klärt auf und helft! Viel viel Kraft für Euch!!!

Hi to All
To Everyone and Mike Cross: The suffering of abuse victims DOES last a lifetime. It often includes suicide, attempted suicide, self-mutilation, slashing arms/wrists/faces, and hundreds of other problems. The WT is directly responsible for EVERYTHING suffered by victims and their denial of that fact only reinforces the fact that they are all insane. Anyone remaining a JW after learning of the GB's guilt is "mentally diseased". Sound familiar? That's what they called those of us who exposed their lies and perverted practices. My daughter was a victim and I do NOT forget or forgive. My best to all as usual. M.A.N.

Greetings from U.K.
Keep up the good work Silent Lambs. The suffering experienced by sexually abused children is unfathomable, and may last a lifetime. All offenders should always be reported to the secular authorities without delay. I hope that the victims may somehow find peace.

Abhor what is wicked, the WT Organization!
I am so sorry for all the children and others who have been abused and mistreated! I too was abused by my stepfather (not JW) so I know. My heart aches for all of you and I can't stop crying! Soon, your pain and torment will cease and comfort and joy and happiness will abound! And all wickedness and evil elders/brothers in WT Organization will be exposed and they will not escape the punishment that they deserve! Our Heavenly Father Elohim promises us that! Amen! Thank you for this and all websites for helping!

To Alex
It certainly is an incredible accusation for the WT to call ANYONE "mentally diseased". For one thing, this indicates the desparation and clinical insanity that the GB is guilty of. There is a paragraph in the beginning of the "Truth" book that insists people should have the right to examine their religion and to leave it if it is wrong. It's funny how that only applies to everyone else EXCEPT the WT. If the world called the GB "mentally diseased" in print, they would have their lawyers go on the attack. But when we who are sane and have left this baby-raping cult try to warn the world, then WE are "mentally diseased"?? I don't think so. I heard that in a few countries, the WT is being sued over this term since it is a "hate crime". I hope the courts throw them all in prison. It's time they learned that they do NOT run the universe. Many here still believe in a god and many do not. Whatever your viewpoint is on that is up to you. But I will say that if Jehovah is the only god, and if he really is using the WT as his only people, I will refuse till the end of time to serve him.

Too Much Corruption
First let me say THANK YOU for this site and your loving advocacy. Thank you for giving a voice to countless other who, like myself, cannot speak. I know multiple victims who were molested by a congregation member. The elder body silenced and chastised victims while allowing the pervert to remain free and unpunished. Now amidst a new scandal, they claim they had, or have had, no prior knowledge to any wrongdoing. Really?! Not only is this a direct slap in God's face, but do they think that he does not see what they are doing? Do they think the rest of the congregation is stupid? Or are they banking on the fear of disfellowshipping anyone who speaks out? Their scare tactics work, that is why I am writing this anonymously, I am still in the congregation. I stay because leaving would devastate my family, and I am not as cruel and heartless as the elders, I cannot throw people and their feelings aside. I fight feelings of sadness and hurt that my family does not see these men for what they are, and that Watchtower is not his true "organization"; the loving God I know would never allow such atrocities to be tied to him. So I do what I have to in order to keep off of the elder's radar. I pray God acts soon and my family can come to their senses.

help
I'm looking for something to help me deal with the pain. My son was abused for several years by our neighbor who was a JW. We were aware of him reading scripture but he was a mentor and friend to my son. Long story short he was sentenced 20-50 and will never get out. My son was to graduate this year and go into the military, his life long dream. Due to his emotional damage this isn't going to happen. As a mother and survivor of sex abuse myself I am having a hard time coping.

secluded years
I was raised by single parent,,youngest of six,,parents divorced because my mother was being brainwashed into this religion, I was 4yrs old, broke away when I was 15 to get a life, could write a lot of stories about Elder interference in our home and lives. Their teachings still haunt me today, and I am 56 yrs old.

It's sad that there's a need for such a site, but I'm glad its here. I wasn't abused but my mother who grew up a JW was raped from age 3 - 16 by her step father, who was and still is an elder. If something like this existed back then, maybe she could've been spared some of it.

Who is labeling who, what?
So the religious organization that hides and protects pedophiles, slaps those who want to get out with the label "mentally diseased"? Just how much more distorted can their little world be?

To M.A.N.
Wow - - well, thanks for clearing that up. I wondered. Why would the Watchtower writers call people no longer JWs "mentally diseased" if they didn't mean mentally diseased? :-) If that wasn't what the article was saying, then what was it saying? What was the point of the article then? I'm sure glad you explained that, because the 'out of context' comment sure wasn't making any sense to me. It sounds as if a lot is going on with the WTBTS - - it seems as if from all the things that are going on that you mentioned it is only a matter of time til things come to a head with that religion.

To KDW and to all
** Admin's note: The mentally diseased comments are in the July 15th 2011 "study edition" of the Watchtower (not available for the public)** I read the quoted paragraph that contained the phrase. There is no "out of context" as the WT claims. There never is, it's always their hard-hitting insults and scare tactics. The comments about the quote seemed to show the increasing desparation of the GB to get JW's to obey them without question and to remain scared enough not to leave the WT. I think it's too late for that. I rarely am able to follow all the forums but it appears the WT is selling property in NYC and is also being sued all over the world. In fact, I think Australia was about to take legal action against the WT concerning their refusal to register if they worked with children or somoething like that. Also, people in a few countries had filed "hate speech" lawsuits against the WT for calling those who had quit "mentally diseased". I hope this information helps those who are looking into this situation. My best to all as usual. M.A.N. from Florida.

Hi, I didn't personally read the article that uses the term 'mentally diseased', but a Jehovah's Witness told me that people were offended by it because the term was taken "out of context." What did the rest of the article say and what was it trying to get across specifically about "apostates"? The Witness didn't explain what the article was actually saying, just that people "hadn't read" it in its entire context, so I don't know myself what the gist of the article was. I'd sure like to know!

M.A.N. - Hi to All
Hi there -- Your posts are always enlightening to the readers and I am always eager to hear your thoughts. The scriptures says Jehovah let's it rain on the righteous and the unrighteous and I sure do enjoy rainy days.

Hi to All
I hope everyone is doing okay. I still recognize some who have posted for awhile. I just wanted to point out how hypocritical and obnoxious the WT continues to behave. I cannot believe the "mentally diseased" label that they love to use concerning "apostates". THEY are the apostates. And I don't see how anyone in the WT could believe it's Christian conduct to insult those who don't agree with their twisted thinking and beliefs. If anyone is mentally diseased, it's the GB and the WT. You really have to be seriously mentally disturbed to think God would use a baby-raping cult to do his work. As I've heard this expression used often by psychologists, I'd ask the WT, "How's that behavior working out for you??" People are quitting the WT in droves. Very few children who are raised as JW's remain in the cult. What does that indicate? If the WT spent its time and effort in fixing what's wrong with the organization, they'd have NO time at all for name-calling. They might even get time to understand a few Bible verses accurately. At least it's a good thing that so many JW's are able to come to their senses and escape the WT's brainwashing. I wish everyone the best.

oh so that's why
I have been wondering why my JW mum hasn't rung in months when normally now and then she sneaks a phone call to me just to keep in touch - "I'M MENTALLY DISEASED" - awesome, so do I get special care and nurturing to help me get well again, maybe a get well card in the mail! They really do use crappy examples!

thank you
I experieced sexual abuse from a member of my congegation when I was three and a half. The matter was "handled" within the congregation. I started having flashbacks of what happened when I was 14 years old. I told my father that I knew I needed help and his response was 'sure but whatever you do don't mention what happened when you were little because it will look bad on Jehovah'....This caused me to fall into a deep depression and develop an eating disorder which put me in the hospital..I left the "truth" when I was 17 feeling like a fraud that I had lied to people because I knew in my heart Jehovah would have wanted these things taken care of. I eventually got counseling after years of abusing marajuana and alcohol to make the pain stop. It hurt all the time I felt like I was just bad in my heart. Recieving counseling saved my life. I can never express enough grattitude for my loving counelor. I wrote to the society shortly after begging them to realize this is a disease that kills ones soul. I told them that if a member of the congragation had a broken arm they would be encouraged to seek medical help and having a broken spirit is the same thing. I never recieved a response. I want to thank you for everything you are doing for the survivors and I know it's divine that you are in existence. Thank you, Silent never more

On independent thinking
I agree, Alex, critical thinking is a good thing, not an evil thing. People aren't simple minded sponges just meant to take in and absorb whatever some religion tries to instill in them. It is important that people think for themselves. Independent thinking is a healthy thing. If a religion teaches the 'truth', then it has nothing to fear in people thinking things out for themselves.

independant thinking
My mother always taught us how wonderful Jehovah's creation was, the capacity to think and reason with our brains. Maybe that's why I was so beligerent and rebelled against the movement: I had my bible principles and a mind of my own. I didn't need anyone to guide me once I was an adult. This also helped me to bounce back and be strong after leaving the movement.
