I hope that some of you lurkers out here really take a look at some of the thread in this section of the board.
This AWAKE magazine says not one thing about how families are asked to trust their elders and how these very elders were and are abusing their children. It mentions nothing about watching out for these trusted men in the congregations.............oh it brings out the internet, other family members and FATHERS and males in particular.
It will tell you how much your child needs to do to prevent something like this from happening. It does not say one thing about how your child will need two witnesses to prove to the body of elders that abuse really happened.
If ever I wanted to tell the organization to F off its with this article. It is the most hypicrital BS I ever have seen put out. I just cant believe the scum they really are.
They wont bring out in this article any of the coverups they themselves have been part of to perpetuate this problem. How they have kept these pediphiles hidden and transferred them around.
This article will not tell you the cases that have been in court and the settlements that have been paid out to families........the courts holding the society FINANCIALLY responsible themselves for the continuation of sexual abuse. Money your contributions are paying for.
But they will put the burden of responsibility on the parents and the children for what happens. I dont think I have ever been more angry than I am now at the harm this organization has done. I am almost shaking.
quotes from the article.
......This is certainly sad news, but are such developments surprising? Not to students of the Bible, God's Word explains that we are living in a troubled period of time called "the last days...................
Here are there three ways they list to protect a child
1. Become your child's first line of defense against abuse
2. give your shild some needed background education, and
3. equip your child with some basic protective tools
If a child is taught that he must always obey any adult, regardless of the circumstances, he is vulnerable to abuse. Molesters are quick to notice when children aer overly compliant. Wise parents teach their children that obediance is relative. For Christians, that is not as complicated as it may sound..............
That goes for all the freaking obediance they ask for themselves, the FDS.
I hate this organization now more than ever.
For those that are active, you will have a copy, for those that do not have a copy I scanned it. After reading this board and researching the coverups of child abuse, I just dont see how this article and the timing of it cannot make your stomach turn.
Keep your kids away from the Kingdom Hall, they will never be safer!
I will post scan in my reply.
Screw you, the governing body, your protection advice sucks
