    I wrote this email today to the royal commission:

    Dear Royal Commission:

    I am writing you to tell you that many of the Jehovah's Witnesses who have testified have lied to the commission under oath, and they have done so with ease because of what they have been taught through their publications. They have a two-volume encyclopedia called Insight on the Scriptures which I have quoted below. They feel it is perfectly OK to lie to the commission if it means protecting Jehovah's Witnesses.

    "While malicious lying is definitely condemned in the Bible, this does not mean that a person is under obligation to divulge truthful information to people who are not entitled to it. Jesus Christ counseled: “Do not give what is holy to dogs, neither throw your pearls before swine, that they may never trample them under their feet and turn around and rip you open.” (Mt 7:6) That is why Jesus on certain occasions refrained from giving full information or direct answers to certain questions when doing so could have brought unnecessary harm. (Mt 15:1-6; 21:23-27; Joh 7:3-10) Evidently the course of Abraham, Isaac, Rahab, and Elisha in misdirecting or in withholding full facts from nonworshipers of Jehovah must be viewed in the same light.Ge 12:10-19; chap 20; 26:1-10; Jos 2:1-6;Jas 2:25; 2Ki 6:11-23.

    It is a good email, but i will point out that both Justice McClellan and Angus Stewart fully understand how much they lied. These are both very clever and wise men, they could see through the usual rubbish very easily.

    Here is where Ron De Rooy was caught out lying, and he has to lie even more. (He claimed he cant remember the allegations)

    It's okay to post material to them. It enhances the problems, it does not allow the issue to die the death of time and distance. Most of the changes we have wanted came about through perseverance. I know for myself I unashamedly post things that prove G Jackson was lying. They are then overwhelmed with this human "outrage". Look at the example of those who have sought refuge in Germany. This is not a new situation, it just got bigger because so many feel safer getting out while they can.
    What shamed the British Government into action?

    Public concern, love? How about a bit of good old compassion? If something is, write, post, yell...No amount of protest over a wrong thing is bad. We are connected now. In spite of that simon idiot who has no clue as to what we are doing to help.............arhhggg, different topic sorry...Do come out from under your' rock little simon..........
