    Hi folks

    As some of you may remember, 7 months ago I posted a thread announcing a special interview with Candace Conti and Rick Simons for which the answers were to be submitted by JWN posters.

    Here is the original thread...


    The resulting interview was filmed on 10th February 2013 in Oakland, California, and the first two videos of the interview were released in March.

    I've finally had the opportunity to sit down and put the remaining two videos together, and these have been uploaded to YouTube today.

    We now have all four interview videos on Youtube as follows...





    If you would like a full transcript of the interview, click on the link below. I have formatted the article so that you can scroll through the questions, select the one that most interests you, and then go straight to the answer with one click. This saves you trawling through the article or videos if there is just one point you need clarification on.


    I would like to thank the following JWN posters for contributing questions for the interview...

    exwhyzee, toweragent, Idrnomo, Balaamsass, mind blown, Vidiot, Christ Alone, Hoffnung, AnnOMaly, belbab, DATA-DOG, Splash, truthseekeriam, besty, LisaRose, Pterist, notjustyet, Lozhasleft and OUTLAW.

    I'm sorry if you asked a question and it was not answered in the videos. I'm sure you will understand that not all questions could be answered for various reasons, mostly if they were too personal or where answering them might have been otherwise inappropriate for the case.

    I would also like to thank Juan Viejo2 and Kathleen Conti for filming the interview, Nugget for narrating the questions, Cantleave for recording Nugget narrating the questions(!), and Rip Van Winkle for kindly assisting in transcribing some of the videos.

    Candace and Rick did a great job of answering the questions honestly and comprehensively, and I hope everyone else will find their answers as helpful as I did.

    Thanks Cedar for posting these videos. I just spent the last hour watching them. Thank you Rick and Conti, if you view these responses..... sorry, it is emotional. You two are great inspiration to all who have been abused in one way or another by the Watchtower or any other organization that has children entrusted to its care.
