I’M MAD AS HELL! How many times is another child molester going to get away with murder before the Watchtower Bible & Tract Society decides to do something about it?!
A close friend who left the Org. about a year prior to my departure shared some very disturbing news recently. The Jehovah's Witness who sexually assaulted her daughter over a decade ago was disfellowshipped last Sunday for the same offense. But this is not the first time he's been sanctioned for the crime of sexual abuse!
The abuser’s father, a long-time elder in my former congregation in Northern California, was made aware of the problem many years ago when her daughter first spoke to him about it. Not surprisingly, he took no action, nor did the judicial committee. The loser was invited to serve at NY Bethel shortly thereafter but they asked him to leave some years later due to a similar incident. He relocated to New Mexico, fully aware of the fact that his past deeds would be kept secret by the local elders per Watchtower policy. Unaware of the impending danger, the children were sitting ducks and parents and others, oblivious bystanders. He seized the opportunity as any pedophile would under such ideal conditions. The elders eventually found out and disfellowshipped him but he was reinstated, only to strike again.
I've known this individual from the time he was 19 (he's almost 40 now) and yet had no knowledge of any of this until six months ago thanks to Watchtower's gag order.I am sick, disgusted, outraged that this piece of ... um, work is still on the loose rather than behind bars. As mentioned at the outset, he was disfellowshipped again recently but the problem, which the Watchtower REFUSES to acknowledge, is this: no amount of prayer or repentance will stop a pedophile! Only a prison cell can do that.
Child sexual abuse is a subject I'm passionate about because I've been there. I know what it's like to be tortured mentally, emotionally and physically by a sexually depraved monster, to reach out for help only to be ignored by those who say they care. Yes, silence is a sexual predator's best friend, an enabler that gives him the freedom to victimize again and again!
That brings me to the purpose of this post. I want to get the word out so that can't hide behind Watchtower's protective veil anymore. And I want him put away. Can you help ex-JW's? Your voices, suggestions and fighting spirit are needed in order to stop the abuse and bring this criminal to justice! He is still living in New Mexico so any offers of assistance from those also residing there would be most appreciated. Message me if you would like additional details and/or can help out.
Please pass it on!
THANK YOU! ❤️
