Do these things including the sending of convicted pedophiles door-to-door upset you too?
Then why not make contribution checks payable to SILENTLAMBS at Silentlambs, PO Box 311, Calvert City, KY 42029.
Imagine, for every revealing article that hits the paper there may be ninety-nine that stay untold. For the one at Kent I corrected the heading to Death instead of Suicide since Mulan pointed out the need.
STATE OF WASHINGTON HAPPENINGS
JEHOVAH'S WITNESS SERIAL RAPIST IN SEATTLE AREA
A jury let Curtis Thompson, convicted of committing four violent Seattle rapes in 1985, go free from King County Courthouse after over 17 years in prison to live in his mother's home near Sand Point at an address in the 5500 block of 39th Avenue Northeast. In most incidents, Thompson threatened victims with a knife or a gun and bound their feet and hands. He broke into their homes, woke then raped them.
He cut one woman's arm from elbow to wrist, raped her with a broomstick and punched her teen daughter in the face when she came home. He had no psychological treatment program from the state but frequently counseled with fellow Jehovah's Witnesses. *(Seattle Intelligencer Reporter, by Wyatt Buchanan, Tuesday, October 7, 2003; P-I reporter Chris McGann contributed to this report and can be reached at 206-448-8011 or wyattbuchanan@seattlepi.) JEHOVAH'S WITNESS ELDER CHILD MOLESTOR IN SPOKANE
An article headed "Jehovah's Witness elder abused girl" says Edward N Davis (40), who was an elder in a kingdom hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Spokane Valley, was sentenced to 90 days in jail for sexually molesting a girl in his congregation 8 years from when she was 10. Her family apparently was close friends with Davis who began repeatedly calling the girl and leaving notes on her car after she moved from home at age 18. When the parents reportedly became aware of the abuse in 2002, the mother confronted Davis on the phone and he confessed. They spoke to elders at the Kingdom Hall who agreed to disfellowship Davis two years, but 6 months later he was back alhough not as an elder, so the victim and her parents went to police. The mother said "They promised two years. Our thought was that the children would be protected."
When Davis was banned, the congregation was not told why. According to court documents the elders also refused to help the detective to the case, saying Davis spoke in confidence. Davis pleaded guilty to second-degree sexual misconduct with a minor. Besides jail time he got 2 years probation and had to register as a sex offender. After sentencing he was not scheduled to report to jail for a couple of weeks, deputy prosecutor Patrick Johnson said. Writer Nina Culver in 2003 was at (509) 927-2158 or e-mail at email@example.com

JEHOVAH'S WITNESS-BACKED CHILD MOLESTOR AT OTHELLO
Spanish Congregation: Manuel Beliz, a Jehovah?s Witness, was convicted and imprisoned at Walla Walla for child molestation although his congregation elders had local members support him. MS (MINISTERIAL SERVANT) AT RICHLAND REVEALS UPHEAVALS
"I began associating in the late 1960s and was baptized in 1970. I believed I had the heavenly calling almost from the beginning of my JW life ... but like most newbies, I refrained from partaking due to the JW culture created by the Society. When I chose to first take the emblems, I was serving as an MS in Richland, Washington. We also had another young Elder who professed his Anointing. My family and I moved just after a major blow-out where 29 JWs were disfellowshipped across 7 or so congregations from southeast Washington to Northeast Oregon and into Idaho, and I think maybe one congregation in Montana. This scenario was mentioned in Jim Penton's book, Apocalypse Delayed. Leanna Morley said she was abused by a pedophile among JWs when in Washington state and when interviewed she was in Oregon...
Sue was seven years old and living in Washington. Her molester later made a chilling confession. He said there were 24 to 42 little girls that he had molested -- he couldn't remember how many exactly.
Bill Bowen says by the end of the year he expects at least 100 lawsuits to be filed against the faith.
The problem is huge, he said. "It's of global proportions. You're talking about tens of thousands of children who've been molested in the last ten years. Tens of thousands, easily."
