I located your website via the book The Divine Plan of the Ages: Great Pyramid, I must admit that I was a little bit surprised! Do you know of the book, and do the Jehovah Witnesses still believe that the Great Pyramid is of God? Over the years I have conversed with your people, and I don't recall any mention of it. I am a believer, and would appreciate your input. Thank you sincerely, Paul Stewart

Je ne sais pas si vous pouvez lire le français mais je prends une chance.

C'est une très belle initiative. Je connais quelqu'un qui a vécu un abus chez les TJ sans que cela n'ait été dévoilé.

Ce serait bien de traduire ce site en français.

As a former witness I know that what is being published on this website to be true. I knew of a case in Michigan where a young girl was being sexually abused by her stepfather and it was pushed under the carpet. She was the one that was blamed and the step father was left in good standing. This is the ultimate in spiritual abuse. The WT Society is responsible for many abuses. DK

Thank goodness at last someone has the courage to stand up and be counted. Many, many people have been sexually and mentally abused and told to keep silent, don't bring reproach on gods name. The organization that has used his name reproaches it with their very existence as an organization that refuses to accept the truth. . . . . men who are elders are not appointed by god they are elected by bodies of elders. Giving them this false 'authority' leads to the catalogue of injustice and abuse being exposed all over the world. They are not capable of dealing with these matters, the sooner the congregations recognize the injustice the better. But they won't listen, after all any criticism no matter how valid is 'apostate, I am so relieved that our family who between us served over 200 years are all free at last, free at last. Only by the presence of websites like this will others be given the strength to make the break and maintain their freedom from the oppression of a mind control cult that preaches truth and freedom but delivers falsehood and oppression

I am a former JW and was attending that congregation in calvert city and have always had a creepy feeling (for lack of a better word) about xxxx. He & his daughter were too close as a father & daughter. I wish I had said something back then. I was disfellowshipped for adultery and you, xxx and xxxx made up my judicial committee and even then, xxxx wanted too many "details" of my escapades. I even went to him (before being disfellowshipped) about a young girl in the congregation who, I felt, was being physically & mentally abused, although not sexually, and he basically just blew me off. Apparently, someone was not doing their homework when they appointed him as a elder. The way I see it, they are no better than the Mormons (you should see the video on the Mormons & how they murder family members who go against them). But, God sees all things that have happened and Godly justice will prevail. I thank God that I am now saved and see the truth about all false religions.

I was a JW for 22 years. I left on my own accord. It was not easy. . . nothing is when you deal with the WT Organization. I have suffered much mentally but most importantly, I have suffered spiritually. I was so happy to (by chance) come across your web sight. It has helped me regroup and realize I am not alone out here.

Thank you for being here! Diane

Hi! I had an article published in the St. Louis Metro Voice (my regular monthly column) that shares information about the two Family Shield radio programs that addressed issues facing the Watchtower Society. I'd like to send you a copy, but can't find an address. This article can also be assessed over the St. Louis Metro Voice Internet site (can't remember the address right now). My e-mail is KLMeyer@worldnet. att. net.

Without boring you with details, I happened to come across your web site after looking up information on disfellowshipping. I have been a Jehovah's Witness for nearly 30 years, my wife has been a Witness all of her life, the last 2 years I have been totally inactive because this same kind of mentality. I have seen children hurt and then marked as evil when in their later years decided that they had had enough. I am not disfellowshipped nor have I disassociated myself, when dealing with the Bible I believe that Jehovah's Witnesses represent it as correctly as any human can, but I do take issue with their dogma and general mentality that promotes paranoia and despair, this does not promote good mental health and I don't believe that this is God's way. The information on your web site is an encouragement that not everyone in the organization is walking around with blinders on, I hope that it helps those who have been victimized in such a brutal way. I don't see the organization ever changing it's position, it hasn't over the past century, it's mentality won't allow it.

Bill,

In case you DON'T speak French, here's the translation of that 05 Nov 2001 post:

“I don't know if you read French, but I'm taking a chance.

This is a very fine undertaking. I know someone who lived with abuse among the JWs without it having been uncovered.

It would be nice to translate this site into French. ”

Meanwhile, I would like to be added to your e-mail list, please: Outnfree322@aol. com

I have just looked at your site and I'm both horrified that this happens but not surprised. I was brought up as a JW but left at the age of 13. Still today I my life is continually bombarded by my father who is an elder who to me has got himself into such a high position of authority, no-one will dare to question him. He appears on the outside to be all nice things but I all too often see the other side. I don't think I was abused as a child but my grandmother certainly threatened to notify the authorities if he did not cease to hit me to the point of bruising,( ruled with the rod), come on, he broke a spade over my dogs back when it ran away. I can truly believe that things like the ones reported on your site are covered up because i have confronted him with other things about members of his religion and he has done NOTHING about them! Thanks for putting this site together. Black Sheep

Its so great to be able to access such information so easily in my own home. Having just recently come into contact with the JW organization (my husbands ex-wife is a JW and has custody of their 8yr old daughter) I'm glad that I can be aware and informed of the going on in their secretive world. I would love to be kept updated. Kay at kayjay_105@hotmail. com Any feedback on how I can protect our little one from this destructive cult would be welcome.

I find a great good that will come from this web site and its contents. I was a Jehovah's Witness for thirty years, till my own daughter was abused and I was not in proper health to cope from the stress of the situation because of a post brain operation, my daughter and her older sister went to the Elders for help but they demanded they not speak of it no more. My older daughter took the information to the proper authorities. Sense that time I have had nothing to do with this religion, I was not in a position to help my family for lack of strength, I could not rely on them to do what a reasonable person or persons would do under the same situation. Yours truly, L D

Sad to say, I am also a JW sexual abuse survivor. I was brutally raped by a 'brother' who six months after the attack, got married in a full JW ceremony at the KH. I reported it to the elders by the urging of my sister who I had confided in. It turned out to be a horrible nightmare. I was interrogated for for 3 days, 4 hours at a time. I asked them if they had interrogated my abuser, they said 'he denied doing anything, and they cannot punish him unless he confesses to raping me. " In the end they disfellowshipped me. Just before doing so, they gave him back full privileges at the KH. I appealed this decision but the appeal process was another nightmare I had to live through. I wrote a letter to Milton Herschel describing the entire situation and asking whether this is the Watchtower's policy on the treatment of rape victims. I never received a reply. Shortly after I was demoted at my job for not being able to perform. I was already depressed and had became suicidal. My mother advised me not to go to the police because 'this would bring reproach on Jehovah's name. ' She hid the entire situation from my father (who was never a JW). I eventually sought professional help which for the first time helped me to see myself outside of this cult. The counseling I received did wonders for my self esteem. As I write this email, my heart aches. I have read the press releases from the Watchtower society and seen their repeated lies regarding their policy. I am thankful now that I am not apart of this sad organization. I truly pity those stuck inside of it (including most of my immediate family).

You are doing wonderful work exposing what has for years been swept under the rug by Jehovah's Witnesses elders.

It has to come out. . . . . . . . it takes a giant to fight the Wt. organization. . . . . . . . you can do it. . . with God's help.

Thank you to all for bravely stating your histories: you have confirmed for me that,sadly, the WTBS is just a "person-run" organization: Jehovah must be looking down in despair at the happenings here on earth We can be confident that He WILL rectify matters, but am so sorry for all of you who have suffered so terribly. If anyone can help me regarding writing a letter of disassociation, I would love to hear from you!Thank you all once again. Lynda. . e-mail: lynda. hazell@aol. com

What a beautiful support site. Thank you for your efforts. I think you are probably helping a lot of women who have been abused religiously, psychologically, and/or physically. Keep up the good work! Heidi http://www. virushead. net

The pro pedophile movement is all over America, not just in one religion. My grandchild was molested by her father at 16 months old, she told at 26 months old, she already had ptsd, from the molest, after a year in court on a incest case, a corrupt judge turned around, behind the mothers back, and switched 'exparte' custody to the pedophile. Mother and child, by the grace of God were not home when the jackbooted thugs came to take the child. How can cps get away with NOT investigation sexual abuse? How can cps (child protective services) get away with NOT investigating a hotline call from the State Police? When the baby disclosed to a trooper her father molested her? Only in America, only with the pro pedophile father's movement. Look up the expert, Dr. Richard Gardner, blames the christians for our nasty feeling against poor pedophiles, he is a father's rights custody expert. NO child is safe in America, today my daughter was indicted for protecting her child while the pedophile runs free with his now 7 year old daughter, who is being destroyed by the evil government system. This is where we are, I believe Jesus will return soon and take the evil from among us, the sodomites who rape our babies, the courts who allow it. God bless the children.

To the Poster Nov 30. Yes I agree with you that the Pedophiles and those who protect them have wreaked havoc on women and children and even the good men who want to protect them. In my own case this has proved true. You mention Dr. Gardner. You are totally correct in your estimation of this evil man. He was the "expert witness" for the pedophile and the religious elders protecting him. He did everything to try to convince the jury that the victim was lying, schizophrenic, etc. and actually came out in his testimony in the courtroom saying incest does not harm the victim. It was the parents who psychologically harmed the victim by severing her bond with her molesting grandfather. DR. GARDNER is a pedophiles advocate.
