|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!

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.

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.

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.

So the religious organization that hides and protects

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!

|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

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
to help me get well again, maybe a get well card in the
mail! They really do use crappy examples!

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.

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.
