[Day 5 - 3/8]The Royal Commissions investigation of child sexual abuse within Jehovah’s Witnesses. + VIDEO
Has Ron de Rooy got the worse memory in human history?
@Cofty: you would think stuff like that would haunt you forever. Maybe it happens too often to be memorable. Or, there could be another reason. Or both. Towards the end of that video, I wanted to put his head in a vise to help refresh his memory. But that's just me...
STEWART: Mr De Rooy, what did you have for breakfast?
DEROOY: [smiling sheepishly] ummmmmm. . . . . I can't recall.
STEWART: Ceratinly Mr De Rooy you had some sort of breakfast before appearing at this royal commission?
DEROOY: I didn't have time.
STEWART: You are telling us you did not have time for breakfast.
DEROOY: [turning red] ummmmmmmmmmm.. . . . Perhaps I did have something for breakfast, but I do not recall what.
STEWART: Scrambled eggs?
STEWART: Perhaps a cup of coffee?
DEROOY: I don't recall a cup of coffee.
STEWART: A bowl of Wheaties breakfast cereal?
DEROOY: Yes! Yes! That is what I had. It's the Breakfast of Champions!
What really pissed me off about de Rooy's 'performance' today was his habit of smiling whenever Mr Stewart asked awkward questions.
FFS, this is a hearing about child sex abuse, not whether Mr de Rooy left his house without his umbrella and it started raining.
MS, I think
Ron - 'I Don't Recall' - DeRooy was sickened by what happened but did nothing about it due to the internal processes of his religion.
This is not a very good advert for anyone thinking of becoming a JW.
I really like the examiner Stewart.
This guy de Rooy is wonderful. These proceedings are just making my day!
I'm still a couple of days behind and trying to get caught up. I certainly appreciate the video stream being recorded and posted on youtube.
Put simply, WT looks like garbage and JW elders look like stooges.
I haven't had this much fun since watching the OJ trial!! LOL
