Watch the program at this link, it is in French.
“Present Time”, French Jehovah’s Witnesses agreed to reveal their beliefs about purity, Armageddon, end of the world, which they estimate is imminent, how their brothers and sisters treated them, their years of mental control under the strict monitoring of followers through a quasi military organization. With the investigation “Present Time” goes back to the source; a worldwide scandal of sexual abuse. Former members of Bethel - the Vatican of the Jehovah’s Witnesses in Brooklyn, New York - present documentation of the abuse scandal. From childhood to adulthood, indoctrination in the first years create a quasi impossibility of leaving the sect under threat and radical social insulation, the journalists raise the veil on what means “to grow up in the truth”. Repeat broadcast on Friday November 12, 2010 at 0:30 and on Monday November 15, 2010 with 15:40 on TSR2.
