|Capable of Committing Child Abuse in Different Ways
I am a child abuse victim from the Philippines. Before I
have experienced those traumatic events, my mind was
completely shut to the probability that these things could
ever happen inside the organization. I am a child who loves
Jehovah and trusted his org as well but what I came through
has tested my faith in him extensively. My story is
different though, I wasn't abused sexually but I can assure
you that the pain and suffering I went through isn't any
less than those who were abused in that way. Currently I
have filed a criminal case against my former elders who
abused me and tortured me mentally for years but it doesn't
stop there... I want to speak up and share my story to the
world so that these hypocrites wouldn't feel that they are
so untouchable. I want to let the public know that JW's
aren't only capable of one kind of abuse rather they can
commit different kinds of crimes too. The most painful part
for me is that despite all the things they did to me, I
trusted that things will changes and someone there would
listen and protect me. Unfortunately nobody cared, not the
CO's or DO's or ZO's and even the Governing Body totally
neglected me and even mocked me. I was forced to go to court
to ask for justice and protection. Currently I am suffering
from severe trauma and a lot of mental issues because of the
torture that I have gone through but I'm trying to hang on
because I can never let them go free and hurt me again. I am
living in fear everyday of my life as long as I know they
are running free. My relatives and congregation members all
sided with them AS EXPECTED. Only God knows now how this
thing will end. I hope God intervenes because too many
damages has been inflicted and so justice should be served.

|Good for you!!!
I just want to say congratulations to those of you
who report pedophilia to CPS and/or the police. It takes
courage to put yourselves on the line in order to do the
right thing! I admire and applaud all of you advocates
for the children who are the victims of sexual abuse.
What you do for these children is what counts, not the
pedophiles and their reputation and not the pearly white
image any religion tries to maintain by not reporting
pedophilia to the correct authorities and tries to cover
up such heinous abuse for its own sake. It is the sakes
of the children that matter. More power to all you who
report the abuse to the right people, that is to
say, CPS and the police. When a religion says that
reporting the abuse of children to the authorities is
bringing reproach on God, Jehovah, the Lord, whatever a
religion chooses to call our heavenly Father, I think it
is just the opposite. For one thing, God can most
certainly take care of Himself. Just as when a person is
told that they must say Jehovah when they pray to God, or
their prayers might go to Satan or something (which I was
told many years ago), which makes God sound
developmentally disabled or something. If God knows our
hearts and minds better than we do, I certainly think he
knows when prayers are directed to Him! Sheesh. Anyway,
when people don't report pedophilia to the proper
authorities because the so-called leaders of a relgion
threaten them with marking, disfellowhipping, whatever, it
is THEMSELVES, the 'leaders' who are bringing reproach on
THEMSELVES. If they care more about an 'image' than they
do about the victims, who wants to be a part of that
religion, anyway? Hang in there, you wonderful advocates,
and stay brave. :-)

How quickly news seems to become 'yesterday's news',
old news, stale news. The children, the victims of
pedophilia don't stop suffering, perhaps for life, but
their plight, once reported in the media and creating a
flurry of intense attention for a while, disappears from
the media. However, the misery of the victims never
disappears. Keep the abuse in the news. Don't let
it 'die down'. Because the children's suffering doesn't
die down - - ever.
And pedophilia continues.

I'm feeling better because Jehovah gave me the strength to
report this case of
child sexual abuse to CPS, I hope they investigate and
children. I did the report against the elder's will, because
they told me to
keep the matter between them me and the abusers, just to
keep the peace
of the congregation. They told me I should not talk about
abuse to others in the congregation, because they could
doubts. And if I keep on , I will be marked. They also
me by saying that the abusers can sue me for defamation.
And this last
threat: I can be disfellowshiped for reading about and
supporting these apostate
organizations as they call it. They are really showing Satan

|Going to the police is best
Reporting such cases is the best course sometimes, as they
will investigate and make arrests, instead of going to the
elders. I failed to do this a long time ago when my daughter
told me. When I confronted the elder he said he never even
remembered being in my house, and made like he was my best
friend. Redeeming factor, he is now in a care home and doesn't
remember who own wife is. Dementia. Bless all of you.

|Nov. 15, 2014 watchtower
Amazingly how eerily the photo on p.26 of the November 15th
issue of the 2014 Watchtower magazine is to me. It
triggered memories of being traumatized in the basement of a
private home being used as a Kingdom Hall at the corner of
Rt 421 and Rt 67 Mountain City, TN in 1972/1973.
The Watchtower magazine (Study Edition) November 2014 -
(See paragraphs 16-18)
The photo was so similar, the open ceiling joists, the steel
columns. I never could understand the intense fearful
sensations I had when the pedophile who attacked me seven
years earlier would walk so close behind me at the
literature counter after the Thursday night meeting, my body
would go into 'automatic high alert mode'.
And then the climax, at sixteen years of age, being assigned
to read the Watchtower on a Sunday, standing just a few feet
from my molester Elder, who was conducting the Watchtower
Study. Oh how I dreaded that assignment 'by Jehovah', but I
didn't complain, as that would have been showing disloyalty.
There certainly was no,"Jehovahs protection" internally for
me at that 'organized congregation'.
Thank God, Jehovah realized what a poor job I did, I was so
nervous, he never gave that assignment to me again.
That photo in my opinion is a form of psychological child
Notice the tight grip the young girl has of the chair in
front of her, in the lower right hand corner of the photo.
The fearful and insecure look on her face.
Jehovah Witness children who look at that girl will pick
those subtle clues up, and will internalize those insecurities.
Children should see pictures of happy and content children
in religious literature, not scared little boys and girls.
Shame on Jehovah Witness Writing Dept.

just want to share my experience and testimony here..my name
is Louis from UK i was married for 6 years to my husband and
all of a sudden,another woman came into the picture.. he
started hailing me and he was abusive..but i still loved him
with all my heart and wanted him at all cost?then he filed
for divorce..my whole life was turning apart and i didn't
know what to do..he moved out of the house and abandoned the
kids.. so someone told me about trying spiritual means to
get my husband back and introduced me to a spell caster?so i
decided to try it reluctantly..although i didn't believe in
all those things? then when he did the special prayers and
spell, after two days, my husband came back and was
pleading..he had realized his mistakes..i just couldn't
believe it.. any ways we are back together now and we are
happy..in case anyone needs this man, his email address dr
firstname.lastname@example.org, his spells is for a better life.

|Alice in Wonderland
I wonder if my mother in law knows the damage she has inflicted on her son by
stripping away holidays and the like and alienating him away from everything
safe and familiar. His estranged sense of faith and hatred towards religions
reflects some of the damage he has incurred from her leap to the watchtower
gang. The abuse of instilling fear of death by god lingers and flows over into
everyday life. A life that is still haunted by memories of "what was done". At a
time when his eyes should be wide open to the current events of the world he
closes them tight as if trying to keep her teachings out. For those whom have
suffered at the hands of their tormentors, I hope they find comfort here.

I am a victim of sexual child abuse at the hands of a JW. He is my father. I,
like many others went to the elders for help...they did NOTHING!!!! My
father admitted to everything...and they did nothing. He didn't even get
DF!!! I plan on going forward and pursuing a case now hoping that more
victims have a voice....by the way..my parents are still active JW....and are
some of the worst people you could know....the situation is sad!!!

|You are a what?
A Jehovah Witness had managed to gain access into my
apartment that I was renting & he was hearing from God to
use my abode for his needs. He pulverized me. his wives,
mistresses called and said Arthur, the intruder, did the
same to them. I am not a JW, I did not hear any angelic
voices for a calling into becoming a Jehovah Witness and am
perturbed that this Arthur, who is unfortunately now my
neighbor, was never convicted. The judge said I was his
spouse and to expect battering, adding that I was a child
prostitute. I was essentially a slut. I was utilized as a
sex toy when I was 3 years old or least that is the
earliest that I remembered.

|Resigning at JW
I have been reading with great interest Silent Lambs, and I
agree that these are terrible situations that young
girls/boys have had to deal with. I also agree with your
dispute on the WTC standing on this. I resigned 18 years
ago, before I would be put out of JW's on the hearsay of my
ex husband/another elder, who had put 2+2 together and got
10. No one would listen even though I was a baptised member
before them. I am at present trying to get back, I would
have assumed that my letter would have been rescinded,
after talking to the committee, in a different congregation
but I am still being treated as being disfellowshipped.
Some of the elders have been very helpful, however, one in
particular actually let the KH door close in my face. What
I would like to know is, does the 'Prodigal Son' not come
to mind, when something like this comes up? I am so happy
you are doing such a great job for the victims of child
abuse. It is very important that SOMEONE does.

|Governing Body teaching is not bible based.
Newly created position not found in bible called 'Governing
Body' is an opportunity for a handful of older men to play
gods and control their followers lives.

former Circuit Overseer who was molesting children in every
congregation he visited.
When my "fellow brothers" refused to turn him in to
authorities I called it in myself. I was not DF'D but was
They are now selling Kingdom Halls in our area. The excuse
is because there are no elders in that congregation. I know
it is a money grab. My wife, who is still a slave to this
evil cult attended the spring assembly.
The one she attended prior to this one they asked for
$5,000.00 to cover the cost in their own assembly hall,
which is owned free and clear. This last one in March 2014
only six months later they asked for $10,000.00 How did the
cost double in six months?
They have known for years about the child abuse and have
protected the abusers which you already know.
The only place to get their attention is in the courts.
Keep up the good work.

If the Witnesses are wrong then really we are the ones
that suffer but if they are right we won't. So discussing
it to point out every letter or bad person who has claimed
to be one is lunacy. Let the thing boil out if you are
right it is a hoax what have you replaced it with a
perfect truth you personally have found.
It is a crap shoot and I choose the Witness side only
because there are more good things by far than bad, and he
does forgive right?

|Wrong on so many levels the Watchtower leadership.
Isn't there something wrong right from the beginning when a
handful of men (calling themselves the Governing Body) create
teachings that they are Gods only channel of communication to
Gods followers? These men are nothing but low profile high
This group is so controlling and dangerous on so many levels
including the child abuse issue.

afraid to talk to me. As a very prominent elder I found they
weren't reporting to police child molestation cases, I brought
these up and they will not talk to me even though I wasn't
Disfellowshipped. They are so brainwashed to believe the
Watchtower lying about lawsuits saying they are not
true, I will in turn speak out even to some of them,they don't
know what to say. Sad sad cases. They now overhear me talking
to others trying to report me so they can disfellowship me.
