Jehovah’s Witnesses in United Kingdom Pedophile Paradise Exposed!
Governing Body has blood on their hands
When the BBC program Panorama did an expose on child abuse within Jehovah’s Witnesses in 2002, a letter was sent to all congregations ordering member to not watch the program. Why? If members were to discover the rampant protection of sexual deviants they would be outraged against leadership. The way to keep members quiet was to pretend the problem did not exist. JW PR issued this statement [click here to read] that commented in part:
“Paul Gillies, spokesman for the Britain branch of Jehovah's Witnesses comments: "Sexual abuse of children is not just a terrible sin but also a crime that can leave lasting emotional scars on its victims. Jehovah's Witnesses everywhere abhor the sexual abuse of children and will not protect any perpetrator of such repugnant acts from the consequences of his gross sin. This is in harmony with the principle recorded at Romans 12:9." ….. Mr. Gillies explains, "It is of deep concern to us if there is a victim of abuse who says his or her case has not been handled with sensitivity or understanding in our religion."
It was plain to see the organization was well aware of the harm caused to children by abuse and knew it was a problem in the organization. So the question is, “What actions have they taken to protect children?” If leadership truly wished to rectify matters and make the organization safe, then specific policy changes were mandated in order to protect kids.
In the twelve years following 2002 cases continue to be brought to the public and the courts that have the same problem reoccurring. Elders did not report abuse, numerous children were harmed and police investigations were obstructed by non cooperation of leadership. This is a matter of public record as a website reports UK child molesters when they are in the media http://ukpaedos-exposed.com. The problem with Jehovah’s Witness sex offenders was so bad it motivated the website owner to write a special article explaining why there were so many JW pedophiles listed on the website. You can read that article here: JW ARTICLE
The article shows that basically in twelve years nothing has changed and the courts are saddled to prosecute the multitude of JW molesters coming through the legal system. How bad is it? See the list below of elders prosecuted in the UK in the last four years. This is public record of which most involves elders in congregations when the children were harmed.
Twenty-six congregations in four years! This highlights the epidemic of pedophiles caused by bad policy that continues to this day. The Governing Body has clearly shown they could care less about protecting kids or assisting victims. Currently the UK Charity Commission is reviewing tax exempt status of the organization due to abuse allegations. Interestingly the Worldwide Work Fund is a tax free cash cow that collects billions of dollars from the public and members. Every donation results in a few cents of each dollar going to fund the defense of a pedophile and using elders to obstruct justice. Please do not make donations to this fund as it ultimately hurts Jehovah’s Witness kids.
When you consider the number of Catholics in the UK as compared to the number of Jehovah’s Witnesses these are horrific numbers. How many priests are listed over the last four years? According to the list 137 Priests were in court or charged with abuse. When you consider there are 5.7 million Catholics as compared to 137,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses the ratio works out to one Catholic priest molester to 41,605 Catholics as compared to one Jehovah’s Witness elder molester to 5,269 Jehovah’s Witnesses. That helps to show the epidemic proportions of the abuse problem within Jehovah’s Witnesses.
It is interesting that over the last fourteen years several in the XJW community have stated to media the problem of abuse within JWs is “no worse” than main stream religion. This was an insult to abuse survivors and those that were trying to come forward to show this problem. Shame on these people! For holding arrogant opinions that supported the organization and hurt the work of supporting victims of sexual abuse, as they owe a public apology to survivors for their misguided statements.
At Silentlambs we will continue to stand against anyone that wishes to hurt abuse survivors and expose these people for what they are. We will always take the position no organization on earth has a policy like Jehovah’s Witnesses. As a main stream religion they are the poster child for the worst policy on child abuse as they continue to hurt kids. The brave efforts of thousands of victims are a testament to this fact. The lambs continue to roar and the truth is made known to protect children.
We encourage victims to come forward and report their molesters no matter how many years have past. Seek legal counsel to prosecute criminally and civilly to make these stiff necked, haughty, arrogant men, known as the Governing Body, pay for their crimes against children.
