DJ: Are you a blonde, by any chance?
Are you at least over the age of 20, maybe?
Seriously, are you an abuse survivor?
How long have you been out of the JWs?
Also, it seems you may possibly be new to the entire Silentlambs situation? If so, please go back and read everything from day one, everything on this board and the entire SL website, and everything on the SL Email List (you are signed up for that, right?)
I really like some of your comments, though, such as:
"BB just drops a thread here with a wacky sounding letter and expects what??"
Is that what you think BB does? BB isn't merely "dropping" threads here. They are purposefully posted as a public service announcement for everyone's Information. Nice of him to do that and keep us informed, don't you think? He's under no obligation to do so.
And, "Wacky" is in the eye of the beholder, namely yourself.
You also wrote: "You aren't giving him enough credit."
To the contrary, my dear, I give him all the credit in the world for having some brains and for knowing what he is doing. You're the one not giving him credit for having a brain, nor are you giving him or the victims (such as Pat) the benefit of the doubt. (That word "wacky" comes back to mind again).
As far as his handling public opinion and criticism, yes, I'm sure he has a thick-skin by now, if he didn't before. He would certainly need it considering the extreme lack of confidence you are showing in his decisions and methods.
Again you wrote: "You must try to bear in mind the way that this letter was dumped here."
Dumped? Sheesh. I would hardy call submitting the letter for everyone's information, DUMPIING. "Drops" "Dumps" "Wacky." Hmmmm.... your choice of words is interesting.
Your other phrases are interesting as well:
"It threw us all a curve..."
Have you been living in a closet all your life? If gruesome/unusual information throws you for a curve every time you hear it, you must be downright Dizzy all the time. For your own health, I would suggest you never watch the news.
"... just when we started to calm down about Jarascz being accused of Santanic Ritual Abuse."
Why did you need to calm down? Why is SRA so unbelievable to you? Why do you assume it cannot happen, either among worldlies and/or JW/GB'ers? Why are you so quick to discredit the victims' story? (There are more than just Pat who have experienced this). Are you still of the belief that so-called "religious leaders" are above reproach? (Hence, the reason for me asking how long you have been away from the JWs). Please try to show some patience. Your mind will be gorged with satisfaction, I'm sure, when all the gorey details are revealed. Think you can stay "calmed down" until then? You did say you were a grown up.
"...some wild stuff has been thrown to us..."
Wild is obviously your opinion. (I guess if something is considered Wild in your mind, then that makes it unbelievable?)
And "thrown to us"? Do you, by any chance, keep house the same way you talk? "Drops" "Dumps" "Thrown" ...
