I had this argument with my grandmother and uncles about scandals that the JW's covered up and whatnot, and they won't budge. I brought up the Australian Royal Commission and of course they laughed. They then said that the Governing body has never lost a sexual abuse case but the "person" who did the crime got charged. So basically they said that the JW's have never paid money to a person for sexual/child abuse. And of course they have but the members have not been told this because the Governing body needs to keep their image clean.
Can anyone link me some cases where the JW's have lost and had to pay? Thanks!
I want them to look this stuff up but it's like they have been so brainwashed that they won't. I asked them a question which went like this "If your faith is so strong in the governing body, why can't you go to 'apostate' sites?" I then got a response as the following, "They don't have my best interest at heart." and "They are mad so they are gonna spread false information." Like literally their faith can't be that strong.
Past few days have been a bad and miserable. Grandmother said if I stay mad, I'm gonna basically crash and burn. Also said I will die fast by being mad. But the only reason I have anger is because I am forced to do this crap. Once I leave, I honestly feel that I will be happier even though I will have some problems along the way.
But some good news, I turn 18 in a month and I will be staying with a friend from school, their parents literally told me I can go live with them so that's a relief. I also got accepted into my main college so pretty happy about that. I know this post is everywhere but it was needed. I wish I could talk to some of you in person because there's so much to talk about.
