Here's a link to a news article in the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The printed version mentioned the two women suing the Watchtower as also testifying at the hearing. For some reason they are not mentioned in the online version. But interesting nonetheless.
Minnesota: Committee endorses extended time period for child sex abuse laws
Being that you are local, how about a letter to the editor about that article!! It may help open the door for some more dialogue in the paper.
lol, sorry didn't mean to use the phrase "local", because I only meant you lived in that area, not that you were "touched". hehe.
I wrote a letter to the StarTribune opinions and the reporter Warren Wolfe regarding sex abuse laws.
Sharing my response: " There are countless numbers of Jehovah Witnesses who have and are experiencing sexual an other abuses through out the United States, Canada and overseas.
I and my 2 daughters are one of many that experienced sexual and domestic abuse. Sharing part of my letter to the Governing Body of Jehovah Witnesses in Brooklyn, New York headquarters regarding their mishandling abuse allegations. Their policy is not to report abuse allegations to the proper authorities. But keep it to themselves. Therefore their are many abuse cases that go back many years.
The anger displayed by me towards the JW org is feelings of betrayal anfd abandoment. What's been taught is how honest and upfront the org. is to protect from the world. What seems that has been forgotten to put God first and what he would want forall his children. Sexual, emotional, physical and domestic abuse issues on any level."
JW org. needs to adopt ZERO tolerance policy dealing with abuse issues on any level.
