The pedophile is in better position than the apostate

    I know that in English there are better pages exposing the organization, but here I updated the page (In Spanish) with an article untitled "La organización jehovista oculta el abuso sexual" (the jehovist organization hides sexual abuse) based on the last news on "Child Abuse" in Australia, and quoting Watchtower's articles in which you can note how in this Organization, the penitent pedophiles are in better position than the "apostates" who denounce the Organization's absurdities .

    For instance, I quoted the Watchtower 1997 Jan 1 p.29, where it is said that it is permitted for the penitent pedophile to preach door to door:

    If he seems to be repentant, he will be encouraged to make spiritual progress, share in the field service, even have parts in the Theocratic Ministry School (The Watchtower, January 1, 1997)

    I think every despicable creature known to mankind is better than an apostate in their eyes.

    So, that's what pediphiles need to do, go from door to door. Silly me I just thought they needed to go to jail.

    I never thought of that but your right. If we disagree with the WT we are not worthy of paradise earth but someone who molested 10 or 20 children is worthy of everlasting life.

    And don't forget about Peter Sutcliffe. Just the kind of guy you want to spend eternity with.

    The following are Watchtower's words against apostates:

    Others claim to believe the Bible, but they reject Jehovah's organization and actively try to hinder its work. When they deliberately choose such badness after knowing what is right, when the bad becomes so ingrained that it is an inseparable part of their makeup, then a Christian must hate (in the Biblical sense of the word) those who have inseparably attached themselves to the badness. True Christians share Jehovah's feelings toward such apostates; they are not curious about apostate ideas. On the contrary, they "feel a loathing" toward those who have made themselves God's enemies, but they leave it to Jehovah to execute vengeance." (The Watchtower, October 1, 1993)

    However, we don't read such strong words against pedophiles in the Organization.

    That's to be expected. From the WBTS's perspective, pedophiles in a lot of cases toe the line and don't threaten the Borg's ideology and if the pedophiles as a group get focused on too much the WTBTS will come up with new light on how to deal with them that can make everyone happy. They don't give a dam about the children the only thing that concerns them is membership and a continuation of existing revenue streams.

    Twisted! Same could be said if you were caught searching the net for porn, which would be a little slap on the hand compared to if you were caught visiting "apostate" sites. Doesn't paedophilia go against the teachings of what is truth not only by the wt but also human conscience too? No. Independent thinking does the Borg more harm as it frees the mind from their control thus "hindering their work!"

    I have suspected for years that being a male, especially an elder or a relative of an elder, means you are much less likely to be disfellowshipped for sexual immorality than if you are a woman, especially if you are not related to an elder. For example, a young girl is disfellowshipped for "heavy petting, her boyfriend, an elders son, is reproved.

    It doesn't seem to make a difference if the immorality involves children, unless it becomes known to the congregation. This is very disturbing and tells you a lot about how women are viewed in the organization compared to men. Female sexuality seems to be feared and detested, men, especially elders are given leniency, and are questioned far less.

    They had something eons ago from the "questions from the reader" that stated if an elder had confessed to a serious sin many years prior nothing needed to be done, as his continuing service as an elder proved that God had forgiven him. There seemed to be no consequences for basically lying by omission, hiding their sin and deceiving the congregation by being a hypocrite. Certainly no "out" like that was available to women.

    The Jehovah's Witnesses certainly is a man's world.

    Well done OpusDei - I don't believe it!!!!!

    Lying in bed last night, I realised the obvious - that if the elders are made aware of someone who is sexually abusing kids, they'll do their utmost to keep it quiet - and to "counsel & readjust" the pervert!

    But if someone openly questions any of the G.B.'s doctrines/practices or their self-proclaimed "slave" status, they will be publicly vilified and defamed in their congregation and cut off from their families and friends for life with the seemingly innocuous statement, (to "worldly people") "William Awakened is no longer one of Jehovah's Witnesses."

    It is long overdue that this statement and practice be robustly challenged and tested by governments, courts, Human Rights Organizations and the authorities responsible for governing charities!

    Expose the beast for what it is.

    "Happy is the one that stays awake and keeps his outer garments, that he may not walk naked and people look upon his shamefulness."

    Reading the letters that have been released by the Royal Commission it's clear to see the assailant was a sociopath bordering on psychopathic behavior. I say bordering because he wasn't just at that stage yet. A sociopath threatens to harm to try and silence the victim whilst coming across as a victim and blaming his bad behavior on everyone but himself! A psychopath carries the threat to its ultimate end!

    Reading the letters from the assailant, he blamed his wife for having multiple affairs when it was in fact him who was playing away. he also pleaded for absolution, there was absolutely no sign of remorse for the vile acts he did.

    I have not read all of then yet but what I have seen is mostly blaming the victim and that includes elders. In one letter, one of the elders involved actually goes all out and blames the victim, using the fact she had stopped going to the meetings! I really hope those elders involved are going to be charged and sentenced to prison. they deserve everything they get, the lies they have told so far have not gone unnoticed by the commission!
