OK I was debating on doing this post but here it goes. I have not put down my whole story on this board but enough for everyone to know that my problem with the "truth" is sex offenders.
I have fought and fought the elders and they win. They will allow child molesters and I cannot stop that. I have went to the police, news, called and written to Bethel (what a joke) etc. I have done everything. I have warned parents in the hall and they do not want to know, I have just gotten into trouble for doing it. One of the sex offenders followed me when I was alone in my car three weeks ago. I did not have my cell phone with me. Freaked me out this guy is a sexual psychopath from his court records. I called Bethel over and over but they believe the elders because I am after all just a stupid woman. My husband was deleted as an elder of 32 years because the sexual psychopath shoved him in the hall. It just goes on and on.
I am mad and hurt, I stupidly gave my life to this religion and this is it. The CO was here this week and I wanted to go, I do not know why but it is my journey and I just felt I wanted one last shot of making sure that this is the right choose. It is
I have been so depressed this week being back, I hardly go to the meeting now.
So I was at the meeting Thursday night and the only elder that I still talk to as I walked by said it is so nice sister LITS to see you here. Do you not feel good being here. I said loudly no I do not with men who rape babies running around. He was pissed and hurt that I said that. People around us heard me say it loudly. He latter told me I was causing divisions in the hall. I said no the elders have by letting child molesters run free and hold and take care of children. He said it is all in the past that the elders have been talked to and have changed their ways. I have heard that for the last three years. I asked him why they had to have their view adjusted it is common sense not to let men who rape babies hold them. He just kept saying it was in the past and they made mistakes. I said at the cost of children. I would not let him get by with that one.
OK so now I am done yesterday was my last meeting. But I feel so down, I know I am making the right move but I feel so down. I hate this religion.
