To get back on TOPIC, I found these quotes on their website interesting:
On Friday, September 27th of this year Bill Bowen (of Dateline "fame") and his followers are planning to march...
He then intends to have each of his followers come forward and tell how Jehovah's Organization has ruined their lives.
I wonder how they rationalized that since he speaks out against child abuse, that he has started a cult of his own?
Anyone who has ANYTHING to say criticizing their organization is conveniently labeled. It makes me SICK.
Of course, the reason for the absentee hearing was that when the elders tried to meet with him, he set up a whole public demonstration outside the KH.
How does this asshole know the entire scenario? Was he THERE? Did he have ANYTHING to do with the SEVERAL hearings scheduled back and forth between the elders and Bowen's attorney?
Yet again, they pigeontoe people and spread rumors or outright lies and present the false information as truth in order to protect the image of their organization.
Dr. Lazarus said:
He will only draw attention of others who will investigate and find out the truth, and we will have, to this guy's shame, more brothers and sisters added to the congregations.
WTF has this guy been smoking? Someone care to show him the zero growth in developed countries? If they TRULY "investigated", they will find the outright hypocrisy and contradictions in JW doctrine, thereby NEVER becoming affiliated with such a cult.
This man's plans confirm for me that he does not have the welfare of the pedophile victims at heart. He just wants to disrupt Jehovah's organization... Instead, his lies and deceptions can only serve to confirm in their minds that adults are not to be trusted.
You cannot GET more BRAINWASHED than THAT. How many ways has Bill Bowen sacrificed to help children? He resigned from a position of respect and authority, gave up his friends due to shunning, has been slandered and called a liar, and lost some of his customer base making candles.. how has he GAINED?
I will end on this note:
with his pedophilia fixation...how scum he knows so much about pedophilia within the organization...and gets young girls to tell their sad stories...it seems to me that they are being used and exploited for more than just his 15 minutes of fame
Can you say SLANDER? ACCUSATIONS WITH NO BASIS? DEFAMATION OF CHARACTER?
OHHHHHHHHHH BUT FOR JEHOVAH'S WITNESSES THAT'S OKAY! IF IT PROTECTS THE IMAGE OF THEIR BOOK-PUBLISHING COMPANY!
Just my 2c in hoping I can help avert Simon from locking this thread.
