You and Bill have had an enormous impact on so many lives, so many innocent and up until your help, defenseless lives. I am glad you told them off. Your letter was honest, well written and to the point. Despite the callous request to have only the last part explained, I can't imagine a decent man hearing what you said and not being deeply affected by it. Regardless of that group of company men, you haved played your part with dignity, compassion and courage. You have exemplified the behavior these yes-men should have exhibited. Thanks, for each person you have helped and will help and thanks from me.
I think all of you who are involved in exposing this gut-wrenching, family destroying situation have behaved with real honor and courage. Thank you from my heart. I can't imagine what it was like for you to endure the personal pain you have and then taken up the cause of others like yourselves. With people like you and Sheila, and Barbara, and all those innocent victims who stood bravely and allowed information I am sure they preferred to keep private to be broadcast across continents, well, I am certain that any person of any kind of quality can't help but be made aware of just how dangerous and wrong the Society's position is. It is only a step from that to recognizing the lack of love that permeates this cult and the hypocrites who direct it. No matter what, any parent will be thinking more carefully about their child's safety and maybe some of these little "lambs" will get the protection they need and deserve. Thanks to all of you.
I don't understand you. They are covering up child abuse with lies and threating honest witnesses, even parents, if they come forth to protect them. Do you really think that is Biblical? I thought one of the great commandments was to love one another as much as ourselves, does that exclude children? What about lies and those who love the lie, doesn't that apply here? This cult has repeatedly been caught telling lies about how they deal with abuse, whether the abuser is allowed to go door to door, whether the people who tell about the abuse are intimidated or not. The behavior of this cult has been typical, for a cult. They put themselves first, image is everything, and the ends justify the means even if the "means" are the shattered lives of sexually abused children. Did you read the trial transcripts? If not you need to. Did you hear the Tower legal representative telling the elder not to put himself in a "jam" over the allegations of child abuse??? No, these people don't use Bible principals except in the sense that the Pharisees did. The children that have had their families destroyed because of their twisted interpretations, the parents who have been shunned by kids at their behest as in the case of Barbara Anderson, the awful carnage these cold-hearted men have shoved on people that trusted them in no way reflects the commandments to love one another and to hate lies. They love the lie and they love to practice deceit on the "flock" they claim to protect, from Mexico to the United Nations they talk out of both sides of their mouths and from Africa to New Jersey people have had to pay for their dishonesty in a coin too dear to imagine. The rules they impose on others they do not abide by, their behaviour is NOT Biblical. It is WRONG.
