So guys, I'm gonna share something with you all that I think you should know. I've only told two people about this (one being John Cedars) for fear of getting this guy into trouble, but it's very telling and will reaffirm your "TTATT faith!"
A couple of weeks ago, I had to have an "ability to protect" assessment by a gentleman from a company that also investigates child protection policies etc
I told him that I am an EXJW and he proceeded to tell me that a few years ago, he was hired by The Watchtower, Bible And Tract Society to carry out an assessment of their child protection policies, because the Charity Commission were going to remove their charitable status based on the growing number of child sex abuse cases, that were not being reported.
He said it was an eye opener for him. When he was in contact with the elders in bethel and their legal department, he was surprised at how delusional they were. He said they were condescending, pious and refused to believe that there was an issue with their "2 witness rule." This professional said that he and the charity commission, had a particular concern with the home book study arrangement, namely that Elders do not make families aware of paedofiles that waltz into their house and anything can happen to a child, in a home, under those dangerous circumstances.
He also told me that the elders would smile condescendingly at him, tut, shake their head and say, "you don't understand." He said that it was ridiculously difficult for him to get through to them.
When it became time to write his report, the legal department asked him to state that he has investigated and finds no issue with the book study arrangement and with their policies. This guy refused to say this because he felt it was a dishonest lie, he pointed out that they have changed NOTHING in their child sex abuse policy/protection policy and so unless they stop the group study arrangements, they will have their charitable status removed. So can you guess what happened?? Watchtower stopped the group study arrangement in every home and sacked the man that wouldn't lie for them.
I tried to tell my mother about this on Wednesday night and that is a whole extra post (which I will need some help for) but I will tell you all about that soon.
I hope and pray I do not get him/myself into trouble for sharing this information but I feel you all should know and are entitled to know. It just strengthens our case against them. I also wonder if the charity commission are aware that they still have field service arrangements in private homes? Perhaps they should stop that too!? Or have they already?
Most interesting I thought
