Sad...head in the sand. Kids make stuff up? It is more common for kids to hide the abuse out of fear of reprisals...then they grow up with serious emotional anxiety issues.
So do adults. In cases of molestation then let the police investigate.
Tiki, punkofnice and many others, you nailed it and yes, it angers me too! (shaking hands with wakemeup...)
I already posted twice here but I can't get this thought out of my head of this JW blaming kids for making stuff up. HTF would he even know without the help and input of professionals in the field??? It's so sick man! It's very rude and heartless to say such a thing, only to save your WT face.
It reminds me also of those two assholes in Australia (Terrence O'Brien and Rodney Spinks) who dared to claim before the ARC that abuse victims who choose to leave the congregation in order to protect themselves can be seen as persons who choose to shun the congregation for THEMSELVES!
So, summarizing these two statements that
1) it's been known that kids make stuff up, and
2) that abuse victims who are leaving in fact are the ones who choose to shun the congregation
give me an even more horrible and uncomfortable feeling than I already had since I broke with the bORG. Even after being out for +two years now, the potential dangers of such a twisted mindset occur even more threatening to me than ever before and are becoming clearer and clearer every time a JW is allowed to give an official or personal "justification" for what's happening in the bORG.
May 2018 bring more common sense to those who are brainwashed and justice and satisfaction to the victims!.
