If Ray has changed his opinion that he gave to me about Wt policy I would welcome the change, if he continues to hold to his point of view, then perhaps a few phone calls might help him to see the need to make an adjustment in his thinking.
The man wrote two novels exposing the corruption and contradictions found within the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society. He also gave up his cushy position as a member of the Governing Body in doing so.
He also stated publicly in an interview that he "was sorry" for all he had done while a JW.
He has not been a JW for several years. You resigned as an elder a little over two years ago, and were disfellowshipped only a matter of months ago. For those years you served as an elder, do you hold yourself to the same standard and consider yourself accountable for shielding child molestors by applying WT policy?
By your own words you have admitted that he has said nothing to the media, and has instead chosen to say silent in this regard. Now you are saying that he needs to make an adjustment in his thinking? Hillary_Step's comment that you have begun travelling down a road of "my way or the highway" is now manifesting itself by virtue of your comments.
In my opinion he is covering up for something he does not wish to reveal.
He wrote a book that was dynamic in what it reveals, but his silence regarding abuse causes me to question his ability to stand for what is morally and ethically right.
Crisis of Conscience and In Search of Christian Freedom speak for themselves. The man gave up his position as a member of the Governing Body and exposed them.. now you question his ethics?
Making accusations and attacks against someone's character without verifiable evidence only serves to damage your credibility Bill. The same applies to the outlandish allegations Pat Garza made to the media regarding Satanic Rituals and Ted Jaracz.. (not saying it is not true, but AGAIN, WITHOUT EVIDENCE)
OK all you arm chair warriors call him and ask.
Again, your self-importance and ego manifests itself. There are many other people besides you who have aided others who have been harmed by the Watchtower Society. It is my opinion that you have simply fell in love with your own press.
Come one Bill lets hear why you never/spoke up against all the other atrocious bullshit that goes on in JWland like shunning, ruining families, refusing blood transfusions, Mexico/Malawi fiasco, owning parts of a military manufacturing firm, the UN issue, no transplants, twisting the bible...while you were an elder? shall I go on? Please do tell us...I for one will be waiting for a good answer. You have reported to the media that the only reason you were disfellowshipped is your stance on the pedophilia issue...is it that you remained silent about all those other issues because they don't matter to you or you would simply look the other way and still be an active worshipper/elder of Jehovah regarless of all those glaring moral dillemas? hmmm?
How about it Bill? Instead of using JW.com as your own public notification board and forum for attacking someone's character simply because they do not agree with you... why don't you answer some simple questions directed at you?
