Today we received this comment/email of allegations regarding paul Berry, it
appears Brother Berry may have a few problems, we were able to contact this
person and it was interesting to find out that Berry was a major poster on the
internet. He used the handle “Pablo” and was well known at the former forum
witnesses.net and witnessonline.com. “Pablo” was a moderator at witnesses.net
and well known to many JW’s across the USA. We wonder how many knew he was a
convicted child molester.
This person would be willing to verify this information with the Wilton body of
elders all they need to do is contact silentlambs and we will be glad to provide
them with additional information to see how willing they are to keep the
It appears Brother Berry was removed as a ministerial servant when charges were
first brought against him for not being “irreprehensible” and he was assured he
would be reappointed as soon as his name was cleared. Yet how strange WT can go
to court and help protect his rights as a convicted child molester? Though these
allegations are unproven and it is doubtful that they will be pursued, would you
want to talk to a brother like this on the internet? Is Berry still on the
internet as “Pablo?” Perhaps a better question is how many “Pablos” are out
there interacting with Jehovah’s Witnesses and using the internet to get away
with conduct described below?
Sobering questions for all to consider.
I have written before, but this information about Paul Berry is just making me
sick! To see that the WT is defending him and saying that he is in good
standing. I wonder what they would do if they knew that he was not coming
forward and confessing his sins once again.
I am disfellowshipped. I hate to admit this, but I know Paul Berry. He came to
California to visit me. He did not tell anyone of his friends in New Hampshire.
He and I engaged in loose conduct and ultimately fornication. Although not
intercourse, shortly afterwards I read in the WT that what happened was
considered fornication. When he planned another trip to see my while I was away
in Arizona, he again said he was going to go even though I told him it was
better not to. He insisted. I explained that engaging in porneia would be seen
as "feet that run to badness" because he willfully was putting us in a situation
without chaperones in a far away location. He came anyway. Porneia happened
again. He made me so sick the way he treated people and me. The airport was
the last I saw of him and he knew I was upset, angry and was probably ending our
Of course, I did end it. But it was not without event and controlling behavior
by him. By this time, I realized he was probably so verbally and emotionally
abusive to his family and I was very sure that he was guilty of the rape of his
He not only wanted to continue our relationship but he wanted me to come see him
in October of 1999. I had long before purchased tickets. He was planning to
whisk us off to Maine. I was adamant about not going and told him that what
happened was not right and that we should go to the elders. He insisted that we
planned on being married and that it was ok.
So, if this information is useful to you, use it to say that he has a history of
covering things up. And maybe he will confess if my name is brought up. Then
maybe he will no longer be considered a JW in good standing.

In an attempt to answer recent charges of child abuse coverups, Watchtower of
Sweden reacted in a way that can only be described as shooting themselves in
both feet. They circulated a letter to all congregations that basically singled
out one person on the program and called him a liar. To add insult ot injury
they then placed several thousand dollars in newspaper ads to print this same
letter to media across Sweden.
See a copy of advertizment on the website.
This action resulted in a response from Anders, the young man that was slandered
by this information. He simply put up an actual fact sheet of what the real
facts were. You can read this fact sheet here, [go to website] as you can see
this was pure evil against an abuse survivor directed by New York home office to
punish this young man and his family. Anders mother called the Watchtower
office in Sweden and asked from whom the information was obtained to make the
allegations to media and the congregations, she was sent a written response.
You can read an English translation here [go to website] as you can see the
Watchtower put in writing that they took the word of the child moelster as a
basis for their "fact sheet." This illustrates clearly what we have been saying
since day one at silentlambs. Victims are silenced, called a liar or discredited
and the child molester is protected and believed. Did the child molester have
"two eye-witnesses?" Then why did Watchtower choose to take his word? It seems
the "two eye-witness" principle only applies to raped children while child
molesters are exempt. Can you see a problem with Watchtower policy?
As a result of the actions of Watchtower the Swedish program
"Mission/Investigate" decided to offer a followup to the program on 05/12/03.
You can view the program here, [website] the program is in Swedish but you will
notice at the end William H. Bowen is given the last word. His comment was made
before the first program ever aired and ended up being a kind of prophecy for
what happened to Anders in Sweden. The words were to the effect that no matter
how accurate the information was presented it would be labeled as a product of
Satan and those on the program would be discredited. It appears this is one
prophecy that came true.
